Two additional very spacious bedrooms, a bathroom and access to a lovely second floor sleeping porch complete this floor. The third floor has three additional bedrooms and a hall bath. The current owner has made significant improvements including adding two-zone central air, new electrical system with CAT5 cable throughout, removal of all previous knob and tube wiring, fresh paint from top to bottom (interior and exterior), refinished hardwood floors throughout and so much more.
