Like Belfast, this 7 room home is a mix of old and new, gardens and art, fun and relaxation. It's nestled in a quiet neighborhood, 1 block from the Bay, a 10 minute walk to town, 15 min. walk to the park, pool, tennis courts, boating, fishing and more.
There are 2 separate living areas. The front of the house has a sitting room, simple office, bathroom with claw-foot tub and stairs to a bedroom, study, and bathroom with shower. The open kitchen, dining area, sun-room, is an extension on the back of the house where a set of stairs leads to a second bedroom.
Relax in the shade of plum trees or pick fresh herbs, raspberries, strawberries, and veggies if in season from the raised bed gardens. Non-smokers only. Stairways may be challenging for those with mobility issues and toddlers.
