JUST REDUCED!! SO MUCH room for expansion in this 2150 square foot home with FULL walk-up attic and FULL high basement! HOME SWEET HOME describes this mid-century, truly well-loved and absolutely spotless brick/stucco Cape Cod! This is the first time 289 Broad St has been on the market since it was custom built in 1953. This gorgeous home has been owned by ONE FAMILY all these years, and is truly cherished! Take in the wonderfully large spacious living room, with a wood burning fireplace topped by a gorgeous wood mantel with dental molding, and a classic brick front. In fact, note the fabulous molding throughout the entire home, crafted in the best way! The dining room flow into the adjoining rooms is just perfect. The Living room has a side door to the open porch, just lovely and private also. The dining room has hosted many close knit family parties, and you can almost 'feel' that walking throughe dining room has hosted many close knit family parties, and you can almost 'feel' that walking through. Speaking of the kitchen.... charming is an understatementDoes it need updating, sure it does, but it is in move-in mid century ready, if you so desire! Hardwood floors throughout this home have been preserved, protected, and are in GREAT condition! You can tell the minute you walk in, that this is a super special home! It's like a step back in time, unpack and relish in this home before you decide to make your changes. I bet you will want to keep and capture the classic feel, as you move forward. Anyone who values solid construction, who loves mid-century classics, this is the home for you. The beautifully sized bedrooms have that chair in the corner, lending itself to a great book on a cold winter night. I know the chairs don't stay but I want the buyer to 'take it all in.' The kitchen and two bathrooms have that meticulous tilework from the craftsmen of that mid-century era. If I were to move into that house, I would not change too much, it is like visiting a bed & breakfast and stepping back in time. The moldings and built-in shelf for the phone are a part of the hallway between the two bedrooms, even that is just lovely. Don't miss the full walk-up attic, with wide steps and plank floors throughout the attic, great for storage. However, this area would be a great space to finish for extra bedrooms or home office. This home does not have central air, but because of the walk-up attic, it would be easy to install. Believe it or not, the ONE window air conditioner in the living room cools the entire home, this is how well insulated and well-built this home is! The basement is full, large and open, with Bilco doors to the backyard. There is a 2nd bath in the basement which I did not include on this listing, as it hasn't been used in years, however you'll find it behind a door towards the back of the house. Don't miss this home, it is something to see, to experience and possibly own. 289 Broad St just may touch your heart, as it did mine.
