Put this refreshed Cape on your list! Both kitchen and bathroom were recently redone in trendy textures and colors: granite, marble, tile. New black appliances accent the kitchen, new white vanity and fixtures put a finishing touch to the bath. Another feature is the 20x19' "any purpose" addition with a bay window that lets in the natural light. Use your imagination! By the way, it overlooks another feature - an oversized 2 car garage with pull down stairs extra storage space. The Craftsman work "suite" is excluded, but imagine your own or something else that you like to do Also, check out the parking area! There's a shed back there, too. Inside there's a convenient first floor bedroom and adjacent study/office (once a bedroom) - which has a big closet. Another closet, cedar, is upstairs - in addition to storage space in the 2 the bedrooms. Once a dining room itself, the now "breakfast room" off of the kitchen adds a casual flair to dining with bistro ambiance! Don't forget to get something comfy to sit on -- utilize that front porch!
