Both the first and second floors have 10-foot ceilings, and many Period doors and windows. The Living Room features a de-commissioned fireplace, with a marble inlaid slate mantel. A Parlor is located adjacent to the Living Room that was recently used as a Professional Office and features a gorgeous six-foot bay window and its own private entrance!

A modern first floor half bath, with a new sink, toilet, floor and wainscot and two rooms that are remnants of an old 1st floor galley Kitchen, round out the first floor. The Kitchen was removed when the entire first floor was reconfigured into office spaces but is begging for conversion/expansion back into a first floor gourmet kitchen. The second floor is being used as a residence and includes three nicely sized bedrooms and a Kitchen that was constructed in a 4th Bedroom. Two large bedrooms are located in the front of the house and one is the Master Bedroom that has lots of windows and another antique fireplace with mantle. There is a full bathroom on the 2nd floor that has a lighted tub/shower enclosure and a ceramic tiled wainscot and floor! A Basement has two finished rooms and there is ample storage both in the basement and in the Walk-Up Attic.

Systems have been upgraded to 21st century standards.
