Interior Sq. Ft: 1,550
Offer deadline Monday June 5 at 2pm. Rare offering of a particularly handsome mostly brick home in need of some updating in spots, mainly kitchen and bath. It looks great from the street, is gracious inside and has been meticulously maintained by longtime owner of almost 60 years. Gets excellent light throughout the day. Has some original features such as doors, door knobs, extremely cool vintage stainless steel front and aluminum back storm doors. Brand new single layer roof with warranty, 2022. Copper gutters and downspouts in front, stainless out back. What's frame of the exterior was painted a few years ago. Bright and functional kitchen is largely original with minimal cabinetry, porcelain sink and drain board, vintage electric stove on which one burner is not working. Upstairs bath has the popular deep Deerhurst cast iron tub and also a tile floor and tile on the wall that are in good condition, as well as wallpaper and older appointments. Step down a few steps from the kitchen to the "basement" where there is lots of storage, a laundry and where plumbing is in place for a rudimentary but working powder room. Also, there is handy access to the crawl space, which could easily be closed off with a piece of plywood (freezer was there until recently). Replacement crawl space vents and vapor barrier. Natural gas forced air furnace, 2012. Natural gas hot water heater, 2015. Central air conditioning was added and is on a separate system. All systems are working well and inspected annually. Most drain pipes replaced with PVC. Recent garage door with opener and 2 remotes for side entry garage with inside access. Even more storage in full attic with fan and pull down stairs and in second floor walk in closet. Well placed outside faucets. Small attached utility shed. Rear yard is pretty, partially fenced, low maintenance and backs to what seems like a distant church yard when the bells are ringing in Independence Mall. Excellent elevation and position with what feels like a privately panoramic view of passersby from the dining room window. Handsome oversized front light in a Deerhurst tradition. Original oak hardwood flooring throughout is in good if not shiny condition. Older windows operate well. All information is deemed to be correct but should be verified prior to purchase. Taxes may reflect a senior discount. Deerhurst has an active Civic Association with voluntary annual dues of $45. House is being sold in "as Is" condition. OFFER SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS IN PLACE.

Climate and Weather
The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
