4 bedrooms, full basement are among features

Contributing Writer

Stone accents this Cape Cod-style home’s covered front porch, and the back yard is surrounded by a wooden privacy fence.

Listed for $162,900 by Lyle Bixler Realty, the aluminum-sided home at 109 N. Main St. has about 1,830 square feet of living space with four bedrooms and spacious social areas.

The home is located within walking distance of downtown Arcanum and has a two-car garage with a concrete driveway. There is a wooden rear deck, and the home has had several updates, including replacement windows throughout.

Formal entry opens from the covered porch directly into a formal living room. Several windows give the room plenty of natural light. Hardwood flooring fills the living room and continues into the dining room, which could be used for a different purpose as the kitchen is spacious enough for a dining setting.

Off the dining room is a short hallway that leads to the first-floor main bedroom and a full bathroom. The bedroom has three sets of closet doors that allow access to two large closets plus a guest closet is across the hallway from the bedroom. The full bathroom has been updated with a neo-angle corner shower with glass surround and a bureau vanity with single sink.

At the back of the house are the kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen area is U-shaped with a window above a double sink. The dishwasher and microwave were new in 2019. Along one wall is a two-seat breakfast counter, and additional open space allows for a dining table. A nook off the kitchen has built-in storage cabinet, access to the rear wooden deck and back yard, access to the oversized, two-car garage and the stairwell to the full basement.

The garage has a storage nook, loft storage, electric opener, a rear service door to the back yard and a front service door, which is the more casual entrance to the home. The basement has a concrete floor, storage rooms, the laundry area and the mechanical systems, including an updated hot water tank.

Back on the main level, a staircase ascends along one wall of the living room and ends at a landing hallway. Two bedrooms are off the landing. Both bedrooms have angled ceilings and large windows and single-door closets.

A short hallway off the landing leads to a third bedroom and a full bath. The bathroom has a ceramic-tile surround tub/shower, a single-sink vanity, a linen closet, built-in medicine cabinet and a laundry chute. Also off the hallway is a cedar-lined walk-in closet.
