There’s plenty of space in here for eight, and the wainscotting adds a touch of class.
And the kitchen is right over there.
The main-floor rear extension has a cabin-like vibe.
There are three bedrooms on the second floor. The occupants of this one probably had to fight over the top bunk.
Overall, the sellers seem to have been big on bunk beds.
Here’s the master bedroom.
All three bedrooms share this bathroom, with nice hex-tile flooring.
A little Ikea couch action in the basement rec room.
And the backyard has a large awning to keep off the elements.
