Updated mechanicals, more space than you think, and nearly a full acre of land! Out in the country, yet convenient to shopping and dining, this 4-bedroom Cape Cod has tons of potential. The home sits nicely back from the road, and the deep lot extends way back with trees and space for gardening, pets and more. There are three bedrooms on the main floor, along with the full bath, living room, kitchen and an enclosed back porch. Upstairs, there is a finished bonus room and an extra bedroom. The full, unfinished basement provides plenty of extra storage space. Waterproofed with a dual sump pump system, the basement holds the updated mechanical systems. The water heater was installed in 2016, and the HVAC in 2017. The well pump and pressure tank system are all newer. The current tenant is on a month-to-month lease for $675 per month and may be open to continuing if the new owner wants to use it as an investment. Property being sold ''as-is'', cash or conventional only.
