This impressive eight room, three bed center chimney Cape has been lovingly restored with many original architectural features preserved while careful integration of updated mechanicals, baths and the kitchen blend seamlessly into the antique nature of the home. The floor plan includes a formal living room and dining room, each with a fireplace, a first-floor bedroom with walk-in closet, home office, family room with built-ins and a large country kitchen. The 3.5 acres include yard and gardens with an oversized deck, and a covered patio area. Additionally, there is a workshop room and a separate tool room, and an attached 3 bay garage. Situated near the village, and easy access to highways for smooth commutes. Discover the great outdoor lakes and the 5000 acres of Douglas state forest trails. Superbly maintained in and out..
