A built-in Murphy bed provides an instant guest bedroom in a room that could also be used as a home office. Recent upgrades include new electrical, vvplumbing, roof, high-efficiency furnace, and a custom kitchen with a gas stove, new appliances and granite countertops. Every room has been wired with cable, Internet and phone lines, and there is plenty of additional storage space in the detached garage and the unfinished basement.
