CHESHIRE — A 1,501-square-foot Cape Cod style home surrounded by gardens and close to the linear trail is listed for $235,000.
Built in 1936, the home at 412 West Main Street typifies its era and style with a central front door flanked by a window on each side, one bedroom on the first floor and two on the second, with hardwood floors throughout.
What makes the home stand out is the extensive gardens in the front and back yards, said listing agent Cheri Paulsen, with Coldwell Banker.
“There’s always something blooming, so there’s always some lovely color in the front yard,” she said.
A rear deck overlooks a patio surrounded by hydrangeas, a small pond with a fountain and a gravel walkway to a detached two car garage. The 0.57 acre property continues beyond the garage with a grassy lawn.
The home has a built-in corner cabinet in the dining room, original wood-and-glass kitchen cabinets and a stone fireplace in the living room. Two full bathrooms are located on the second floor and a walkout lower level, also home to a laundry room and family room.
The home has been upgraded with central air conditioning. A furnace was installed in 2016.
An open house is scheduled for Sunday from noon to 2 p.m. For more information, contact Paulsen at 203-605-1644.
