96 Knickerbocker Road
This is a 1913 side hall colonial that has been beautifully renovated by a local architect. It’s truly a labor of love. Because so many of these homes are knocked down for new construction, there are fewer available every year. The seller restores turn of the century and Victorian Era homes to preserve them.
As a result, this is not your typical fix Aand flip house. Come inside and take a look at the quality of the work that’s been done. The kitchen alone displays the superior materials and craftsmanship. You’ll find real wood cabinets – not veneers over pressed wood.
Improvements include 2 new bathrooms, a new kitchen, new windows, a new furnace, a new clothes washer and more. This is a very charming home with the added plus of central air conditioning.
Artist Studio or Home Office
The attic is finished with an open space room and a separate finished room. This would be ideal for an artist studio or as a home office. There are other possible uses too of course. As a result, you have 3 levels of living space.
Location is great too.
