Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms each with adequate closets, one of the two full baths and laundry closet. The property boast 2 lots and on the 2nd is a 2 car garage, with stamped concrete drive with plenty of room for not only your vehicles, but additional storage as well. The garage apartment adds an additional 685 square feet plus generates good income through its high demand as a rental. It is currently leased for one year. The charming apartment could also be used as private guest quarters following tenancy. Built in 2009, the apartment offers hardwood floors, kitchen with granite countertops, appliances including washer/dryer, one bedroom, full bath with ceramic and hardwood, plenty of storage, plus a spacious living area with window seating. These two lots add to the uniqueness of 216 Keaton Ave, as most homes in the area are on smaller parcels. Both parcels are currently used by its present owner. However, if a new owner desired, the possibility of deeding separately can be explored. In 2011 an extensive renovation and a stunning addition was added to this quaint, historic home. The project included a butler's pantry connecting the original living room to a beautiful gourmet kitchen, dining and spectacular sunroom. The Butler Pantry transitions the old to the new and it is fabulous! Plenty of storage with a bar, wet sink, upper and lower cabinets and natural light and hardwood flooring! Across from the bar is a pantry with loads of shelving to meet all of your dry food storage needs. Tucked away under the stairwell to the second floor, is the adorable powder room. The addition offers brick flooring throughout the kitchen, dining and sun room and an amazing ceiling height with exposed beams. The custom kitchen offers extensive cabinetry, with soft close drawers, deep drawer storage, upper glass front doors, lovely quartz countertops, beautiful glass tile back-splash, built in oven and microwave, LG refrigerator with lower drawer freezer; all in stainless and Jenn Air gas stovetop. Natural light is abundant with added Restoration Hardware fixtures that are fabulous!! The current owner/chef thought of everything! There are additional electrical outlets, a separate Quietside unit installed for climate control and spacious bar surrounding the kitchen, making cooking and entertaining a delight!! What an opportunity to entertain! The added living area has plenty of bar space, plus adjacent to the kitchen is plenty of room for an extended dining table to host a number of guests for dinner. The sunroom is amazing! Surrounded with natural light, this space has multiple uses. Overlooking the incr
