As spring sales season gears up, ‘tis the time for finding some familiar-looking listings, freshened up and posted anew.
Such is the case with this charming Old Enfield home, located just down the street from another recent residence of its vintage. Notably, though, the latter is asking a higher price than what it sold for a year ago, while this one, on the market for $2.2M in August, is back with close to a $51,000 drop in asking price.
This sun-filled, two-story home is elegant but understated. Built in 1926, it has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms and balance original features such as 10-foot ceilings, wood floors, crown molding, curved archways, built-ins, and a fireplace with contemporary updates.
The layout of the 3,008-square-foot house is such that owners could choose to create a downstairs guest quarters, as there’s a suite with a bedroom, office, and bathroom that has its own entrance.
The updated kitchen features natural stone counters and opens to the family room. There’s also a formal dining room.
There are two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs; the master suite and potential guest suite are downstairs.
The frame home is on large grounds with verdant, mature trees, and lush landscaping. The backyard contains a deck and swimming pool, and there are six parking spaces on the property.
