Hardwood floors, wood mantels, detailed staircase, tongue-and-groove accents are just a few of the craftsmanship details found throughout this two-story home in Germantown.

Listed for $199,900 by RE/MAX Solutions Plus, the vinyl-sided home at 248 N. Main St. has about 2,150 square feet of living space. Just a few blocks from downtown, the house sits along a sidewalk with a picket-fenced back yard. The property includes a 40-foot-by-30-foot, three-car detached garage with three separate bay doors, two loft storage areas, electric service, concrete floor and alley access.

Recent updates to the house include the heating and cooling systems and the roof. Both bathrooms and the kitchen have been updated.

A front porch covers the wood entry door, which opens into the formal living room. Straight ahead is a turn-of the-century craftsman staircase with detailed spindles, built-in deacon’s bench, detailed closet door and wood panel wall accents. On the opposite side of the room is a painted-brick, gas fireplace with wood mantel surround.

Hardwood flooring fills the living room and continues into the dining room, which has a gas fireplace with wood column mantel surround. Wood trim accents the walkways into the family room and the kitchen from the front two rooms, allowing for a circular floor plan on the main level.

Light cherry cabinetry fills two walls of the kitchen and is complemented by light Corian countertops. An island has a built-in range with additional storage and breakfast bar seating. A window is above a double sink, and ceramic tile accents the walls. There is a pantry closet and access to the cellar walk-out basement.

Accessible from both the kitchen and the living room is a family room with tongue-and-groove wood-accented walls and a vinyl picture window. A door with working door ringer opens to the two-level, wooden-deck porch. The upper porch floor opens to allow outside access to the basement, which houses the mechanical systems, laundry hook-ups and has storage options. A sidewalk from the lower deck leads to the rear service door of the garage.

The home offers three bedrooms and a full bathroom. All three bedrooms have hardwood flooring and oversized single-door closets. One closet provides walk-in attic access.

The bathroom has a ceramic-tile surround tub/shower, a single-sink oak vanity, tile flooring, a linen storage nook and a walk-in linen closet.

A half bathroom is located on the main floor and features a pedestal sink, tile flooring and tongue-and-groove wall accents.
