This is a wonderful 4-bedroom University Heights home.  It is light and airy with lots of charm. It is ideally suited for families. It has fabulous landscaping.

Hardwood floors throughout -- oak downstairs, maple upstairs, and maple stairs -- were all refinished in 1997.  Original wood trim, including oak baseboards, crown molding, and brass hardware.  High ceilings and open floor plan give a spacious feeling.  The back porch is ideal for eating outside.  The brick fireplace draws very well.  Lower sun room off of the living room is great for plants.  Dining room features built in window seats.

Four large bedrooms, all have built in closets.  Master bedroom has window seats.  Upper sun room would make a good study.  Large attic and basement can easily be finished as extra space.  Basement has walk out to garden, and no flooding problems.
