Salem Colonial offers ideal location at an affordable price

Nestled amongst other homes of similar design, find this delightful Colonial revival. Though its roots date back to the late 1920s, this home boasts every contemporary amenity needed for today’s lifestyle. From substantial rooms to lustrous wood flooring, this charming home has it all.

From the curb, the home presents as a well-kept New England bungalow. A welcoming portico, adorned by a decorative cupola above leads the way into a house that is much more spacious than its exterior suggests.

“This house has an inviting floor plan that allows for formal or casual living that is perfect for entertaining,” says Realtor and listing agent Paul Herrick of Keller Williams Realty. “This is a really well-cared-for home that has seen some very nice updates.”

One such improvement is the remodeled eat-in kitchen complete with copious cabinetry and gleaming white appliances. A generous butler’s pantry with storage galore leads to the oversized family room with brick fireplace, a large closet and a full bath. Should someone desire a first-floor master suite, suggests the Realtor, it would be a viable and easy transformation.

Offering more structured spaces, the living and dining rooms feature impeccable flooring and classic trims, while a convenient laundry room rounds off this level.

On the second floor, find three bedrooms with tall ceilings, rich hardwood floors, ample closet space and a shared bath.

Spanning the length of the house, an attic above is easily accessed by a pull-down staircase.

Chock-full of expansion potential, this house also has a tremendous basement well suited for a game room, second family room or guest quarter, perhaps.

Additional enhancements include a lovely entryway with traditional wood staircase, a Beacon Hill-style yard with mature plantings, Manteca free siding and newer replacement windows throughout.

Listed for $324,950, this home not only has an amenable price tag, but a superior location, as well, according to Herrick.
