This vintage Colonial is in the city of Middletown in Orange County, and its 1,532 square feet are packed with neat details.
Let’s start with this sun-filled entry. You could grow an abundance of houseplants here—or adopt a more minimalist ethos, if that’s your jam.
Turn away from the sunny view and get an eyeful of beautifully preserved circa-1918 craftsmanship: paneled walls, a stately staircase, and a petite radiator.
The eat-in kitchen has more of a 1970s vibe. From the parquet floor to the groovy color scheme, the room suggests an update might be in order.
Off the kitchen is this sedate parlor with a lot of pink carpeting. The listing says there’s hardwood flooring underneath.
Pocket doors lead from the parlor to this bright dining room. The stained-glass window is a keeper…the carpet, not so much.
Double doors lead from the dining room into this bonus den, which could be a great space for a home office, playroom, or entertainment cave.
A first-floor laundry area is a nice bonus.
There are five bedrooms in the house, according to the listing.
This one has nice hardwood floors.
This one needs work on the floor and the ceiling.
Two full bathrooms are in the house. This one has wainscoting and a glass shower stall.
This bath is big enough for a double-wide vanity. Is that more carpeting?
At the tippity-top of the house is this cool bedroom space. The built-in shelves lend their own special charm, and the carpeting looks like it’s in good shape if the new homeowner doesn’t want to remove it. The house has central air-conditioning, which is surely welcome on hot summer nights.
A detached, two-car garage with a loft is another benefit. The property is 0.17 acres and is close to schools, shopping, restaurants, and parks.
