PROS Trees create a private backyard for this 1965 Colonial. Since it’s fenced-in, the backyard is great for kids and pets. Tiered steps lead to the front door, which leads into a family room with built-in shelves, bay window, and refinished wood floor. Adjacent is the dining area with a slider to a party-size deck. Updated recently, the kitchen has white cabinets, granite counter, and breakfast bar. Nearby there’s a living room with fireplace, sunroom, and laundry. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a bath and the master has its own with tiled shower and double vanity. Both the middle and high school are walking distance. CONS Bedrooms need painting.
