There are maple, spruce and 2 apple trees along with mature flowering bushes and perennial plantings with a view in the backyard of Webb Brook. There is plenty of room for a vegetable garden. There are replacement windows throughout the home except for the front porch that still has the original windows with storm windows intact. The living dining rooms have original hardwood floors that are in very good condition as is the stairway that leads to the second floor. One level living is an option with a bedroom and a new full bathroom on the first floor with washer and dryer also on first level. Two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom, that would benefit from some updating, are found on the second floor. The back shed has been fully insulated and new wiring on one wall completed and could be finished off for another bedroom, office or den area. The basement has been insulated and home is efficiently heated with forced hot air furnace with plenty of hot water from the electric hot water heater. This home would benefit from some cosmetic updating, but the structure is very sound. There is a detached 1 car garage/workshop behind the home.
