With a recent price drop of $30,000, this 1920s-built cottage is a hidden gem on a small wooded lot near town. While the layout seems dated and renovations are needed, existing highlights included solid interior woodwork, french doors, and hardwood floors. The property has a charming screened porch and a sizable detached garage of 1040 square feet. Upstairs, the bedrooms have angled ceilings and deep baseboards. According to the listing, the home has a newer heating and hot water system, and the septic system was replaced in 2014. A close distance to the town and to local parks make it an ideal location for commuters.
