The sought-after Larches, a delightful neighborhood… This light-flooded Colonial in the coveted Larches has been in the same family for 46 years. Upon entering the foyer, you will first note the beauty of the scrolled volute at the base of the the staircase. The expansive living room on the left, with a wood-burning fireplace, window seat surrounded by bookshelves, wainscoting and crown molding is a perfect room for entertaining. A flex room off the living room can be used for office, playroom or guest room when needed. The formal dining room with wainscoting can be utilized as is, or the wall of the abutting kitchen could be removed and replaced with an island (or peninsula); please see a design in the floor plans attached. The half bath has a wonderfully discreet location. Three bedrooms and two baths occupy the second floor. The master bedroom with a window seat is particularly spacious and easily accommodates a larger master bath with abutting walk-in closet; please see the floor plan attached. The bookcases on the wall of the third bedroom could be removed for more space. Access to the heated attic for potential expansion is especially convenient. Mullioned windows exist on both ends of the space, and the City includes the finished room. The basement has a sauna and, according to the seller, it works. The fenced yard is nice, level and private. This house has the “luxury” of a 2-car garage; with a 3-car driveway, the garage could be narrowed to create a larger backyard. Benefits to living in The Larches: It’s really a neighborhood; neighborhood happenings are sent via email; there’s an annual “block” party and a book club—now wouldn’t you really like to live here?
