Original hardwood floors fill the main level with the exception of the kitchen and bathroom of this Cape Cod that sits on a corner lot within the Berkley Heights neighborhood of Kettering.

Listed for $95,000 by Domescik and Associates Inc., the aluminum-sided home at 1388 Central Park Ave. has about 1,030 square feet of living space. The house sits on a corner lot with freshly mulched garden beds, a covered front porch and a white vinyl picket fence.

There is a one-car, detached garage with its own private concrete driveway and key-pad electronic opener. The property also has alley access with an aluminum storage shed and concrete walkway that leads from the garage to the back door of the house.

Entry from the cover porch opens into the formal living room with a picture window to the front and side of the house. An arched walkway leads directly into the kitchen, which has vinyl flooring. Oak cabinetry fills the wall space along one wall, and a pantry cabinet is next to the refrigerator nook. The kitchen comes equipped with a range and refrigerator. A window is above the double-sink, and wainscoting accents the wall space between the countertops and hanging cabinets. A bay bump-out creates the breakfast dining area.

A door from the kitchen opens to the basement stairwell. At the landing is the rear exit door that opens to a concrete patio and fenced back yard. The stairwell continues into the basement, which has glass-block windows. The house has gas, forced-air furnace and central air conditioning. A workshop area is tucked behind the mechanicals. Storage is built underneath the stairs, and bathroom facilities, such as a shower and toilet, are near the laundry hook-ups and wash tub.

Back on the main level, a hallway from the living room leads to two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Both bedrooms have two windows, overhead lighting, hardwood floor and a single-door closet. The rear bedroom has a ceiling paddle fan and furniture nook.

The full bathroom has ceramic-tile flooring, a tub/shower with fiberglass surround and frosted window, a single-sink oak vanity and an extended triple-mirror medicine cabinet. Ceramic tile accents the walls, and there is a linen closet.

A door off the living room opens to the hidden stairwell that leads to the second level. The attic has been finished into a spacious room with knotty-pine paneling, an angled ceiling, overhead lights and tube skylights. There are two windows, one of which is a vinyl replacement window to allow for a window air conditioning unit.

There is access to floored attic storage and a finished closet near the stairwell. A railing around the stairwell has built-in shelves.
