Welcome to the unique property at Castor Garden. This brick-and-mortar charmer is in possession of the original family that built it in 1950 and maintained since. Large corner parcel is legally consists of 3 (!) separate lots which are properly marked. Variances open possibilities to expand the existing house or to build a completely separate structure(s). If anyone asks to describe this property in one word, it will be POTENTIAL. This comfy colonial sprawls over 1,785 square feet, the largest model from original design. Generously sized rooms, recently redone parquet floors, wood burning fireplace and much more will welcome you and your family, while state of the art security system will keep everyone safe. Master bedroom and a full bath on the main floor will accommodate various living arrangements, as well as 3 additional bedrooms and a full bath on the 2nd floor. Bathrooms were upgraded in 2018. House was completely repainted in 2019; hardwood floors were redone in 2019. Gutters were replaced in 2018. High efficiency furnace by Weil McClain was installed in 2017. The attic can be use as a storage space. A full-sized unfinished basement can be transformed into a recreation area. A wide and deep (remember, 3 lots!) fenced back yard and a detached 2-car garage complete the property. You can be a proud owner, first in the last 40+ years, of this hard-to-find home.
