It sits steps from Memorial Field's playgrounds and open fields and around the corner from highly rated Brayton Elementary School.

The hall bath with tub/shower is used by these bedrooms. 

A fourth bedroom is located on the third floor along with a bonus room which could possibly be transformed into a bath, home office, or storage room. 

A carpeted, lower level recreation room with a cozy corner gas fireplace adds casual living space to this special home. There is also a large storage/utility room with a laundry area and walk-out access to the rear yard.

The level, deep backyard is the perfect area for play or outdoor entertaining. There is a two car detached garage and additional driveway space.
