At first glance, many may assume that this Cape on North Union St. is the perfect starter home, and they would be correct. Often times, however, the phrase "starter home" is used as a property that "needs some work," and when speaking in terms of this lovely house, that assumption is far from the truth. This 59 year-old home has been greatly cared for throughout the years and has received many aesthetic updates as well as structural renovations to provide years of virtually maintenance-free enjoyment for its new owners. An ideal first home, yes, a fixer-upper, no a chance.
This inviting Cape in the desirable Thompson School neighborhood offers eight generously-sized rooms, including a bedroom and full bath on the first floor for the option of convenient one-floor living. This level also includes a charming 15 x 11 square foot living room, a sun drenched 12 x 11 square foot formal dining area, a warm 12 x 11 square foot kitchen with custom cabinetry and a 18 x 13 square foot family room with wall-to-wall carpeting, recessed lighting and three oversized windows that overlook the open, fenced-in backyard.
Another great selling point is the large 15 x 12 square foot master bedroom on the second floor, an unusual bonus for this age home. Two additional bedrooms and full bath complete the accommodations on this floor and a bonus room on the basement level provides a supplementary options for an office or playroom.
While every room within the 1,694 square feet of living space provide comfortable and relaxed areas for its residents, the new homeowners will also sleep soundly knowing the home has recently received considerable updated from top to bottom, inside and out. A few examples of its major modernizations include, top-of-the-line heating and hot water systems, vinyl siding Anderson windows, a new roof and a freshly painted first floor.
This Cape is so residentially versatile and structurally appealing, it will surely not remain on the market for long. Any homebuyer, from newlyweds to retirees, will immediately recognize its potential for years of comfort, happiness and security.
