Description

Well kept Reading twin-home, built in early 1900's and maintained by the same family for the last 32 years... This solid home includes a second floor laundry room, (formerly the 5th bedroom, and possible location for a second bathroom). The finished third floor has two large bedrooms with it's own heating system! (Gas hot water) The rest of the home is heated with classic radiators and an oil fired system. Great little work shop in the basement, many tools can stay if buyers are interested!? The outside space included here is great, first there is a large covered front porch looking out over the street... then around back there is a little paved / patio area with some garden space... with some very happy tomatoes! behind that, are two large parking spaces... Perfect for a growing or extended family. Many of these homes have been converted into multi units... Not the easiest task, but likely possible. (seller needs tom time to purchase next home, closing date negotiable)
