Description

Built in 1940, this stately 2,896 sq. ft. stone home with large 30x12 side porch exudes charm and character and is situated on a corner lot on Hampden Boulevard in the Conservation Heights District. The home could use a little updating, but this is a solid stone home and there are plaster walls and high ceilings, original hardwood floors throughout the home, two wood burning fireplaces, and numerous other features like the sunroom that leads to the smaller side, front porch that provide this home with great value. The formal dining room has double doors that open to the side porch, and the formal living room has built in bookshelves, a wood burning fireplace and a wall of windows in the front and back of the room and leads to the sunroom with another wood burning fireplace. The kitchen also provides access to the side porch. There is also a half bath on the main level, and the second floor features 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The walkout basement was once upon a time a general store and leads to spacious backyard and patio perfect for entertaining, gardening, or playing. There is also a two car heated garage and driveway for off street parking but there is ample on street parking as well. This home is truly a must see because unfortunately, homes are not built like this anymore. This property is NOT FOR RENT!
