A walk-through pantry with built-ins connects the dining room with the tiled kitchen, which has an additional pantry to the side. The hallway holds two more bedrooms on the right, and the bath at the rear. There’s a shared patio area and laundry in the basement.

The walk-up attic holds four more unfinished rooms. CONS No lawn.
