Wonderfully remodeled and updated Victorian with a great location, only a few blocks from Crystal Lake Main Beach and the Historic Dole Mansion where you'll find a summer Sunday farmer's market, and many other fun activities throughout the year. The almost half-acre yard has a mix of sunny, open play space and a giant old oak tree that shades the stone patio in the backyard. Inside, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the large rooms and tall ceilings. The updated kitchen has tons of cabinets, granite countertops and a huge island. There is a cozy sitting area with fireplace that adjoins the kitchen, too. The family room has vaulted ceilings, cherry hardwood floors, and a full wall of built-in benches for game storage, etc. Then there is the gigantic dining room with space for a table to seat at least 12 people! Upstairs you'll find a very large master bedroom with walk-in closet and attached bath with walk-in shower and two-sink vanity. Besides the two other bedrooms and laundry room on the 2nd floor, there is a cool 3rd floor bedroom perfect for teenagers who want "their own space" or a large home office. Finally, the newer basement has 9ft ceilings, large ground level windows, and only needs a few finishing touches. Overall, this is a totally cool and one-of-a-kind home! Put your own decorating touches, refinish the hardwood floors and you got a GEM!! (in the pictures - the family room was being used as a bedroom)
