The upturned driveway outside this colonial central foyer offers two options: the door bearing the name of this style home, or the side entry and its small enclosed porch. Autumn in New England. The choice is clear.

After dropping leaves and other evidence of the season, guests open the door to the foyer with access to the upper floors through the front stairs. But that will be explained later.

At this entrance you have two more options. Head to the living room on the right or the kitchen on the left. In the latter, double windows let natural light into the maple footwell, the hardwood flooring used throughout much of the ground floor. The kitchen features white cabinets with dark drawers and granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a sink under the second window, modern track lighting, a breakfast nook with two windows and a coffee bar.

A door from the corner opens to the first of this home’s two full baths. This includes a porcelain pedestal sink, beadboard paneling, white tile surrounds in the shower/bath combination, and vinyl floors.

Another doorway in the corner leads to the 104-square-foot dining room. A center light fixture looks like a starburst, a teal accent wall adds an elegant pop of color, and a pair of windows open onto the front yard. French doors open into the living room (front there is a door). This 188-square-foot space is bright with warm maple floors, white walls, and three windows.

All three bedrooms are located on the upper level with the second full bath of the larger of the two. The shower-only bathroom has dual vanities with granite countertops and ceramic tile floors.

The 200 square foot master bedroom is the largest of the three bedrooms and is located at the front of the home. Like his other two bedrooms, it is carpeted. Unlike the others, there is a double-sized closet behind the white sliding doors. Windows on three sides brighten the space.

The other two bedrooms are 139 and 113 square feet respectively. The smaller one is at the back of the house and has three windows. There are two larger ones.

A thickly carpeted staircase leads to the basement, adding approximately 500 square feet of living space to the home’s total. And this area is a split decision.Half of the space is set aside as a 342 square foot recreational room with recessed lighting, and the rest is practical, including a laundry area.The house has a radon mitigation system I have.

The home sits on 0.17 acres with a backyard patio, garden and mature trees.
