Contributing Writer

Located just a block off the downtown district of Yellow Springs, this cottage sits on a three-parcel, corner lot and has a versatile floor plan.

Listed for $170,000 by Roost Real Estate Company, the frame story-and-a-half at 112 N. Stafford St. has about 1,150 square feet of living space on a basement. The property includes an oversized, two-car, detached garage, which has an attached wooden deck. Part of the property is tree-lined, and there is off-street parking. A small patio setting is between the garage and house.

Recent updates to the home include water-proof treatment to the basement in 2018, glass-block windows installed in the basement in 2018 and vinyl windows installed throughout in 2012.

Formal entry opens from the covered front door into the living room. Hardwood flooring fills the living room and into the first-floor main bedroom, which is tucked off the living room. Both rooms have natural light and ceiling paddle fans.

The staircase to the upstairs divides the middle section of the house and allows for some flexibility to the floor plan. A door opens into a bonus room, which has a closet, allowing for a possible second main-level bedroom. The room is currently set up as an office.

To the left of the staircase is the dining room, which is open to the updated kitchen. Flooring treatment divides the two living spaces.

White cabinetry lines one wall of the kitchen, and there is a double sink below a window. The kitchen comes equipped with a range and refrigerator. Wood-laminate flooring fills the kitchen and continues into the full bathroom. The bathroom features a tub/shower, single-sink vanity that complements the kitchen cabinetry.

The laundry has been moved up to the main level and is off the kitchen. The laundry room has wood-laminate flooring, shelves and overhead light.

Access to the basement is off the kitchen. The basement has a concrete floor, glass-block windows and houses the mechanical systems, including gas, forced air furnace and central air conditioning.

Two bedrooms are upstairs and are separated by a small hallway off the staircase. Both bedrooms have angled ceilings, a window and a closet. One bedroom has a door that opens into a floored attic storage space.

A mudroom is off the kitchen and has an updated storm door.
