As you enter the home you will find a welcoming oversized kitchen with breakfast bar seating & plenty of space to incorporate a dining area. The doors leading to the living room are said to be reclaimed from an 1880s era hotel in Argentina. Speaking of the living room, this spacious room is a great place to relax and unwind. It offers a doorway to the open deck & also a private stairwell to the primary bedroom. Also located on the first floor you will find a bedroom featuring an open beam ceiling from the original construction of the home. There is also a full bathroom located on this level.

This space is drywalled, insulated, & offers plenty of light making for a great bonus/storage space. In the kitchen you will find a trap door to the basement which could be used as a workshop.
