This lovely home with a pretty blue facade sits adjacent to 12 acres of park land and features storybook charm balanced with all the right owner upgrades. From central air to the brand new kitchen to the cohesive teal accents, this dream cottage has it all. Enter through the enclosed sun porch, which is an all-season room with two ceiling fans. The living room with working stone fireplace and gray wood grain floors has natural light flowing in from north and eastern exposures and connects to the dining room, which is open to the kitchen and conveniently offers an entrance from the driveway. The sleek-yet-warm U-shaped kitchen features gray Shaker-style cabinetry, Quartzite countertops, stainless steel Whirlpool appliances including a French door fridge and five-burner range, and a double-basin stainless steel farmhouse sink below a large window overlooking the side yard. Teal barn doors at the rear of the dining room add visual appeal and provide access to what the current owners used as the main suite. Located away from the other bedrooms for privacy, this spacious room features two skylights, windows overlooking the rear patio and an en-suite bath featuring wood grain tile floors, extra-wide walk-in shower with rustic teal and white subway tile surround, and a floating double vanity. There are three more bedrooms upstairs with original pine floors, good closet space, nice natural light from oversized windows with deep sills--and the front room features a sweet built-in loft bed. They share a vintage-chic hall bath with black and white tile floors, refurbished original cast iron tub, pedestal sink and subway tile half wall and tub surround and a sweet built-in bench under the window. The full stackable washer and dryer are conveniently located in a hallway nook, leaving the basement available for storage. Against the lush backdrop of the park is a charming brick patio that on one side connects to a charming fieldstone path that winds its way past a stone well and mature landscaping to the front of the house, and to the driveway on the other. The rear garage would make an excellent workshop or home-away-from-home office. This utterly charming home is convenient to trains, restaurants, shopping and of course parks.
