Nicknamed the "Dollhouse" by it's current owner this vintage in town farmhouse is oozing with charm. From the gaslights and porch swing to the creatively crafted casual spaces with antique wide plank flooring, and fabulous kitchen with high end appliances and quality will fall in love the minute you step onto the front porch! Even a cozy family room & laundry on the 1st floor! The bedrooms are equally spacious with W/I closets, beautifully updated en suite baths, fireplaces with remote gas logs and one has an attached all season porch - making either an option as a master bedroom. Basement has great storage space and terrific little nook for office or play room. Over-sized 2 car carriage garage with floored attic is attached to the house via a handsome portico. Recreated in 2017, the rear patio is reminiscent of a private European courtyard w/ bluestone and antique pavers creating space for dining or lounging by the fire pit. Train, town, park...just steps away!
