Original hardwood flooring throughout is in great condition. First floor features a sun-drenched living room and office/bedroom, full bath, eat-in kitchen, and a bedroom or dining room. Upstairs you'll find 2 additional bedrooms. Need more living area? The spacious basement has good height, and the ceilings have already been finished for you. This home has so many possibilities for remodeling and expansion. Bring your ideas! Fantastic level lot with an ample, mostly-fenced backyard featuring flower and vegetable gardens. All this in a perfect commuter location just a mile to Wyoming & Cedar Park T Stations, 1.5 miles to Oak Grove, and a mile from downtown restaurants and shopping. Outdoor enthusiasts will love hiking, biking, and boating nearby at the Middlesex Fells Reservation. Don't wait!
