A true delight where modern style meets classic charm, perfectly nestled within the highly-coveted Merriam Hill. Gleaming hardwood floors and an abundance of natural light flow throughout the freshly painted interior of this lovingly-maintained Cape. First impressions are met with fantastic curb appeal as the charming front farmer’s porch welcomes you from the front gardens with mature trees, plantings, and a flagstone path. A thoughtfully designed floor plan allows for an easy flow interior, perfect for both comfortable living and effortless entertaining.

Gleaming hardwood floors span the open concept and spacious formal living room as a wood burning fireplace provides warmth on chilly nights. Floor to ceiling shelving graces each side of the fireplace offering the perfect place to store treasured collectibles. The living room transitions seamlessly into the formal dining room as the hardwood floors continue to span. Natural light streams through the triple window of the dining room filling the space with a delightful glow. The formal living and dining rooms connect with an office providing a private space perfect for working in comfortably from home.
