Leaded-glass windows frame the entry and vestibule doors, leading to a wide front hall and gracious stairway. The expansive living room has a large mantel fireplace flanked by bookcases. Off the living room is an enclosed heated sunroom. In keeping with the historical features of the property is a leaded-glass china cabinet in the dining room. A butler’s pantry leads to the kitchen, which has an attention-grabbing large paneled picture window that frames the back yard view. The updated kitchen has quartz countertops and new stainless-steel GE appliances.
