The crown molding and wood trim on the first floor of this Tudor Colonial have the warm brown tones original to the 81-year-old home. The walls in the living room are painted a golden color. The room has also a working fireplace with exposed brick and dark brown exposed beams that stand out against the white ceiling. The adjacent dining room easily accommodates eight at the table and has brown wainscoting underneath light green walls and brown crown molding. Floors are oak. Windows in these rooms, and throughout the house, are updated. A swinging door leads to the kitchen with gold walls, black laminate counters, and cabinets in maple, along with a small eating area. A half bath is off the kitchen.


Upstairs, the master bedroom is comfortably sized. The second bedroom is princess pink in color, fits a twin bed, and has two deep closets. The third, with the walls painted a light green, now hosts a baby crib and is the smallest of the three. The full, tiled bath has white Nantucket wainscoting, tan walls, and white tile floors.

The basement is finished with drop ceilings and a carpeted floor and has a bath with shower decorated with blue wainscoting underneath white walls.

The backyard is flat and has a paving stone patio with fire pit and a large wooden play area. There is a one-car brick garage fed by an expanded driveway that permits two-car parking. The front steps lead to a large, heated, mudroom. Utilities are updated.
