Nestled among an array of flowering and fruit trees sits this tidy and charming Craftsman-style home. Enjoy an afternoon iced tea on the beautiful front porch or on the brick patio in the back, curl up with a good book in the cozy living room, or cook up a gourmet meal for friends in the newly renovated kitchen. The dining room is plenty spacious enough to accommodate a dinner party. Although compact, this sweet home has a good deal of room inside. On the second floor, there are 3 sizable bedrooms, a full bath with a claw foot tub, wainscoting and storage for toiletries. In addition, there is a 4th room with a closet, and access to the attic. At the moment, the 4th room is being used as a closet and dressing room - but could easily be transformed into a home office, nursery or place to do morning yoga and meditation.
On the third floor is a spacious bedroom, with additional storage, and ample room to add a full bath if you chose to turn this into a master suite. The current owner has plans for an added powder room on the 1st floor, tucked away off the kitchen. There are beautiful hardwood floors throughout the house, as well as a full basement with storage and laundry. At the moment, a bit of water tends to pool in one corner of the basement during heavy rainstorms only. It is likely an issue easily remedied by redirecting water from the gutter downspouts away from the house. The boiler and hot water heater in good shape, and the electrical system has been updated to 200 AMPS of service. There is some leftover active knob and tube wiring, but the current owner plans to have it removed before the sale of the house.
This house has been lovingly cared for, and updates throughout include a new kitchen, newer roof, updated electrical, recent interior and exterior paint and many replacement windows. Located at 217 Prospect Street in Northampton, MA -- it is very close to town, the bike path, the YMCA and shopping. You may contact Julie Starr or Julie Held directly for a showing, after the first showings at the open house this Sunday, September 14th from 12-2 pm. Offered at $329,000.
