Check out my new listing in Westerleigh--281 Kingsley Avenue!

This large, roomy well-maintained 100 year-old house on an 82 x 92 lot, designed by one of the foremost North Shore architects, James Whitfield, Sr., boasts six bedrooms (4 on the second floor, 2 on the third floor), living room, formal dining room, 3 baths (one a 6' jet tub), hardwood floors throughout, in friendly established Westerleigh.  Plumbing, electricity and heating have been upgraded over the years.  The roof and trim are about 10 years old (30-year roof).  Exterior shingles have always been stained, never painted which has kept them in top condition for almost 100 years.

Or relaxing with your loved ones on the swing of your huge, wrap-around porch.
