A true collectible in a prime location! Within walking distance of York, Eat, Frasers, DQ, and Trader Joes, this 1928 Wardway kit house exudes charm. A 1925 advertisement termed it a Colonial Home of Unusual Distinction'' - meticulously maintained, it still earns that moniker. High ceilings, crown molding, hardwood floors, original built-ins, doors, and hardware set off the interior. The 1st floor space flows nicely - LR and den on one side, DR and kitchen on the other, a nifty foyer and powder room in between. A 3-season porch in the back has new windows, 2nd story views and opens to a large deck. Upstairs, 2 BRs were combined to make an oversized primary with windows on 3 sides. Two more BRs with walk-in closets and a full bath round out this level. The basement is a delight with a newly remodeled full bath, play room, laundry room, work room/mudroom and ample storage space. Basement walks out to a one-car garage and .26-acre lot with a mature and landscaped backyard that is great for entertainment. Updates include A/C, roof, insulation, water heater, 1.1 baths, some windows, appliances, and more. Beautiful home, great location, and a little bit of history - awaiting its next owner.
