REMARKS:

This classic-looking Twin may appear attractive from driving by - original integrity & such - but it should be experienced from the inside looking out. The property seems to check all the usual boxes: style, # of bathrooms & bedrooms, gas hot water heat, central A/C, garage & driveway~ but what appears to be a very open, conspicuous house is in actuality a very secluded setting. This home has been lovingly maintained by its owners for 27 years. Inside are five rooms, two foyers & a Powder Room on the 1st floor; three Bedrooms & two Bathrooms (one Hall, one private) on the 2nd floor; and two Bedrooms & a Hall Bathroom on the 3rd floor - everything most Buyers might expect. The basement is divided into a finished area & Powder Room, a Laundry Room and lots of storage areas. It is not the glow of the Living Rooms~ fireplace and the Mercer-like hearth tiles here & upon the Sunroom floor; it is not the exposed wood floors and handrails found throughout the house or its many unique original doors that makes it special. It is the feeling you get from inside the house and looking outside. Please stop when you reach the front doors arched entry and turn around. Ahead is Winston Park and all about is a miniature arboretum setting with perennials blooming at successive times. Enter the bright, glass-wall Sunroom and see the brick knee wall & handsome slate patio encased in a world of flowering greenery with the sky above. From the Kitchen, view the backyards picturesque framed deck area with a walkway of lush plantings as it wraps around to the side yard and gated entry - nothing but the sky above. Before venturing upstairs, it seems impossible that this home is not tucked away in some quiet locale somewhere off the beaten path. The benefits from the buildings features here are too plentiful: inexpensive utilities (gas heat & hot water, replacement casement windows with enclosed mullions, replacement sliders and glass-block vented windows, hi-efficiency central A/C piped down
