Colonial offers comfort and in-law apartment
This welcoming four-bedroom Colonial built in 1913 has hardwood floors, a recently renovated kitchen, and a small backyard. The house is shaded by mature trees and tucked into a corner at Forest and Washington streets, across from the Gingerbread Construction Co. The open front yard leads to the sturdy white house with black shutters and a hip roof of many angles. The living room has a working brick fireplace and French doors leading to a small four-season carpeted sun porch.
The kitchen has granite countertops, tile flooring, and stainless steel appliances. There’s an addition off the kitchen — including a small full bathroom and a carpeted den — that also could be used for an au pair, the in-laws, or an adult child.
There are hardwood stairs heading to the second floor with three bedrooms, each with cathedral ceilings. One bedroom is being used as a study. The backyard is fenced and has a patio and space for a dog run. There’s a one-car garage and parking for three more cars. Kimberly Solio of Hammond Residential Real Estate has scheduled an open house 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
