This stately property is a great option for investors and owner-occupants alike.

A breezeway offers access to the bricked back patio with space for a grill, small planting bed and seating or bike storage. The bedroom is situated at the rear and has a private bathroom with stall shower and granite-topped vanity. A walk-in closet was created in the space under the stairs with Narnia-like access down to the pristine finished basement. With a powder room and laundry, the lower level offers plenty of flex space?there's the square footage for a home office or gym without losing out on seasonal storage. The second apartment is through the shared vestibule and is also oozing with charm via its original pine flooring, wood banister and vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. This bilevel unit's main floor features a large open living/dining/kitchen area with brand-new appliances, and the smaller of the two bedrooms is at the rear with access to a private deck overlooking the yard.
