Old meets new in this classic Colonial, completely updated from top to bottom, while preserving period details. Imagine yourself cooking in the new white kitchen with quartz counters, marble backsplash, stainless appliances, custom lighting and gas cooking. Sunlight fills the main level illuminating the new hardwood floors. You will want to spend the rest of your summer relaxing on the screened-in porch with custom crafted wood ceiling. The striking new second-floor bath offers a quartz vanity and exquisitely tiled shower. Two large bedrooms (optional master) and an office or 3rd bed complete the second floor. The top floor was transformed into a master oasis, play space or office with new carpet, a half bath and a walk-in closet. All new Harvey windows and energy-efficient systems; tankless HW heater and heat pumps with C/A. Also, a refreshed garage with new roof, fresh paint and electric door. Don't miss the finished basement with laundry area. Walk to Oak Grove, the Fells, downtown.
