There is a covered concrete porch across the front of the house, and a concrete porch at the side entry, a perfect place for morning coffee. The magnificent Bur oak tree in the front yard is older than Paris. If the large concrete drive is not enough, there is plenty of room to create exta parking on these lots.
The kitchen was updated with custom cherry cabinets and a pantry. The house has a large family room with built-ins and wood-burning fireplace with custom mantle. The main floor bedroom has a full bath, a dressing table, and a linen closet. The main floor laundry has cedar-lined closet, storage cabinets, and half bath.

The upstairs is served by a separte HVAC and hot water heater.
