This story-and-a-half Cape Cod-style home has a finished basement and is in the Ridgewood subdivision. Originally built in 1938, it features quality craftsmanship, updates throughout and is in the Springfield Local School district.

The front of the home features a stacked stone wall as a highlight and a red brick walkway leading to the covered front porch with wood railing. The home also has a three-car detached garage directly next to it with a brick paver driveway leading up to it.

The newer front door has three obscured decorative windows and enters into the entryway with wood floor and wide moldings that extend throughout the home. There is a closet with a mirrored door off the entryway to the right is the living room with a wood-burning fireplace with brick and wood surround and mantel with built-in shelving and crown moldings. Wood flooring extends into this room.

Connected to the entry way is the formal dining room with wood flooring, a decorative ceiling light and crown moldings. There are triple windows in this room with blinds that give it extra natural light.

A swinging door leads from the dining room to the remodeled kitchen. This area has darker walnut wood flooring, freshly painted light-colored cabinets, solid surface countertops, a beamed ceiling, recessed lighting, and stainless appliances, including a range, dishwasher, microwave and French door refrigerator. There is also a brick backsplash and double stainless sink. There is also an exterior door here that leads to the backyard.

All three bedrooms have ceiling fans, wood flooring and walk in closets. The remodeled upstairs bath has shiplap walls, dark wood flooring, a newer vanity and sink and a tub/shower combination.
