With the way the house sits on the property, this Cape Cod’s exterior offers little insight to the amount of living space inside.

Listed for $79,900 by J.L. Zimmerman Realty, the frame house at 30 Frahn Ave. in Fairborn has about 1,580 square feet of living space with a spacious living room and upstairs main bedroom. The formal entry is off a covered porch on the side of the house, and the modified additions are to the rear, hidden by a privacy fence that surrounds the back yard, rear deck and extra parking pad.

A parking pad is off the main street at the front of the property and a driveway leads through the fence gate and ends at a garden shed with attached lean-to for additional parking or possible patio. A composite deck is off the back of the house and is accessible from the house through a door from the mud room.

The front door opens directly into the living room with wood-laminate flooring that continues into the eat-in kitchen and the staircase hallway. A picture window fills the living room with natural light.

The kitchen is divided by a peninsula counter that offers seating for two and storage. Cabinets fill three walls and surround appliance nooks. Off the breakfast room is a mud room and laundry room. A door opens to the rear deck and a second door opens into a full bathroom, which features a corner shower, single-sink vanity and frosted window.

Off the living room is a hallway that leads to the staircase to the second floor and the entry to a second full bathroom. This bath has a tub/shower, single-sink vanity and vinyl flooring.

Upstairs, the staircase ends at a loft hallway with storage closet and access to three bedrooms. The hallway and two bedrooms have refinished hardwood floors. The front bedroom has large closets.

The 14-by-17-foot main bedroom is at the back of the house and has carpeting and a ceiling paddle fan. A step down is the entrance to the walk-in closet.

The partial basement is accessible from a stairwell from the front porch. The basement offers storage and houses the mechanical systems, which include a gas, forced-air furnace and central air conditioning. There is a wall air-conditioning unit on the second floor.
