Set back on the property, this home has a front yard of natural greenery and foliage leading up to the front door. The first floor includes a foyer, a living room with gas fireplace, a separate dining room, and office area. Hardwood floors are throughout the first level.

Corr says it’s a bright, sun-filled living space. “Light comes in everywhere due to the location of the house on the lot.” Corr says. “That just adds to the natural charm of this property.”
