Crisp and clean Franklin Cape w/1.4 acres

Accepted Offer


This sunny Cape has tons of charm and a great layout for entertaining. Freshly painted, newly sanded hardwood floors downstairs. Every window has a view and the land is wide and open with mature trees and gardens waiting to be restored. The kitchen is small, but could be expanded into the absolutely wonderful, bright dining room, or kept cozy and functional if a formal dining room is your preference. Sellers are installing new counters and updating cabinet doors and floors. A kitchen door leads out to a three season sun porch with a door to stairs down to a stone patio. The living room is spacious, with a wood burning fireplace and there's a great office that shares the brick chimney wall. Two big bedrooms and a full bath complete the picture downstairs, and upstairs are two more large bedrooms, one currently a workroom/crafts room. There's room to create another bath upstairs. The basement is full height and walks out to the back yard, plus there is a half bath adjoining the drive-under garage. Outside, lots more land than it appears, and an old quonset type building which could be renovated into a good garden shed/plant nursery. The back yard overlooks a second field that borders on the Ouleout Creek, where the fog hangs low on warm nights when the water is cool. The location is just outside the historic arts village of Franklin, and the restaurants, shops, and Franklin Stage, all of which make Franklin a wonderful community and a destination for visitors from outside the area.
