Charm and character combined in cozy Cape Cod! This over 100-year-old delightful home in Olde Dover is tucked on peaceful tree-line wide street walkable to Silver Lake, mins. from historic downtown and few miles to Rt. 1. Note that there are many updates to this 2,000 sq.-ft white siding, blue shutters 3 BRs/2 full bath home. Fronting home is a 12-window, white-wood ceiling with white ceiling fan porch. From morning coffee to evening relaxation, its ideal space to enjoy hum of small town. Front door opens to Victorian-influenced formal LR, where preserved original hardwood floors greet you. Two newer windows here and throughout flank front door and 2 smaller windows border white brick FP with flat brick hearth. White stunning build-ins, white almost 6-inch baseboards and white decorative millwork around doorways and windows create continuity in room and give striking first impression against merlot-red painted walls. Floor plan flows back to DR, which also maintains a formality, but while keeping with hardwood floors, transitions to neutral paint and natural wood trim around windows and doorways. Generous, 4-window bump-out on side wall is ideal for low-lying serving chest or buffet table. Wide entrance grants access to expansive kitchen with spacious dining nook, while there is extra alcove that is perfect for cabinet that offers extra storage of dishes/glassware. Oak cabinets, and plenty of them, are paired with SS appliances and complement ceramic tile floor. Sprawling bay window with handsome deep wood ledge adorns back wall, inviting plants and herbs to thrive there. Wrap around past access to unfinished LL with 2 rooms, one with work bench, to warm and welcoming FR with large picture window flanked by 2 smaller windows on side wall, while smaller version of this trio of windows sits on front wall. Rustic knotty pine paneling, rich hardwood floors, and textured wood checkerboard ceiling create go-to gathering for family and friends to watch TV, read a book or just enjoy company and conversation! Circular floor plan wraps back around to front door and LR. Great flow of rooms and ample space! Earlier-era solid, all-hardwood staircase leads to 2nd level of home where succession of BRS fan out and millwork trim around doorways continues. BR in light lemon-yellow features hardwood floors, wide baseboards, ceiling fan and desirable walk-in cedar closet! Perfect for storing clothes, protecting them from moisture, while giving your wardrobe a pleasant and aromatic scent. Remaining 2BRs, one in mint green and the other in sky blue, also have hardwood floors, wide baseboards and ceiling fans, and both have big walk-in closets! Updated full bath boasts cream ceramic tile floor, pedestal sink, ~ wall of tile, and tub with tile surround. Cabinet-like deep storage is a bonus! Off kitchen, knotty pine paneling is repeated in sizable laundry/mud room with angled ceiling and 4 windows, 2 windows look out to screened-in porch and lush backyard beyond. Adjacent to laundry room is updated full bath with white tile floor, ~ tile wall with blue border, semi-circle shower and white 8-drawer vanity. Nice perk that there is full bath on both levels of home. Steps lead down to vast screened-in porch and 2 ceiling fans confirm its large size. Great venue for outdoor dining in warmer weather, and just outside is a trellis that covers open patio. Both offer lovely views to backyard, which is much like English garden with multiple brick-paver trimmed beds, abundant perennials, fruit trees and more, all enclosed by white privacy fence. Detached 1-car garage is tucked to back of property and is great storage for outside items. Historical charm, lots of space and wonderful backyard on N. Bradford St.!
