Built in the mid-70s, this fixer-upper on .49 acres is a gem for buyers looking to put their own stamp on a contemporary living space. The home has traditional Cape-style shingles, but its a-frame build and anti-colonial layout makes it unique. Enter on the ground level and take the stairs to a spacious great room with a brick fireplace and a u-shaped kitchen. Sliding doors in the kitchen and great room open to a treehouse-like back deck. With four levels, the home has five bedrooms and four-full baths, all of which need considerable overhauls. An attic space has angled ceilings and exposed brick from the fireplace below.
