There is a dishwasher, refrigerator, and updated electrical panel w/ circuit breakers. No TV now. Bathrooms and kitchen retain their vintage character. Washer & dryer are in basement, which has separate ground-level entrance.

The house is raised on stone pillars; two exterior sets of steps lead to the porch and first floor. There is one interior staircase from living room to bedrooms and full bath on second floor. Our home would not be practical for small children or anyone with restricted mobility, but it might be the right nest for you.
