This nearly 1200 square foot 1846 Colonial has been well-kept, and shows the owner's immense pride in ownership. The vintage themed, high-ceiling eat-in kitchen with gas appliances has a washer and dryer in the corner, with a reproduction tin backsplash and plenty of counter space. The white bead-board and large windows give the kitchen a sunny, airy feel. The mid-century cabinetry has been kept, painstakingly painted, and updated - no cheap laminate cabinets to contend with.
Off of the kitchen is a sliding door to the screened-in porch with a large, comfortable hammock-style swing, perfect for watching the wildlife on the water with a cup of tea or coffee.
The large, yet cozy living room has a storage closet, access to the basement, and best of all - an adorable vintage bathroom with black and white diner-style linoleum flooring and aqua fixtures.
