Most rooms are bright with natural light. Original baths are in good condition, as are other period details, like hardwood floors, built-ins and French doors. The first-floor en suite bedroom would make a perfect au pair suite.
There is no central air-conditioning. The driveway could use some attention. And most of the property’s green space is out front.
Given the fast pace of the current market, some properties may no longer be available at the time of publication.
