Happy Halloween! The candy-centric holiday of today, with “Trunk-or-Treats” in a safe parking lot, differs greatly from when we were kids and rampaging from door to door in hopes of a bounty of sweets.
This week, in honor of those bygone days, we’re exploring local homes that are within walking distance of great village downtowns. Today we’re in Warwick; this 1,557-square-foot house is just a couple blocks from deliciousness like the Fizzy Lifting Soda Pop Candy Shop and the Candy Apple Shoppe.
Built in 1872, the three-bedroom home has original details like the banister in the foyer. Crisp white paint brightens the paneled walls here, and complements the hardwood floor.
Just off the foyer is this dining room, big enough to seat a Thanksgiving crowd.
The living room has more beautiful hardwood flooring, and a big bay window.
The kitchen is simple and bright, with creamy walls and white cabinets topped with dark solid-surface countertops that wrap into a three-seater peninsula. The stainless steel appliances look like they’re on the new side.
On the other side of the kitchen is a breakfast room…
…that’s also the laundry room. A door from here leads outside.
This half-bath, done in a gray wash with white fixtures, finishes off the main level.
Upstairs you’ll find a carpeted hall.
This bedroom is currently being used as a den. It’s got a ceiling fan and two nice-sized windows.
The primary bedroom is also carpeted, with an offset ceiling fan and neutral white walls.
The bathroom is also drenched in white, with an oversized tub/shower combo, white ceramic tile on the floor, and a double-sink vanity.
The carpet in this bedroom looks like it needs an upgrade. But the rest of the room is move-in ready.
This bonus room upstairs is being used as an office. There’s also a walk-up attic.
The property measures just over a tenth of an acre, but really, with downtown Warwick within a short stroll, you’re not far from fun activities. The backyard includes this tiered deck and a paver patio. There’s also a shed and a garden.
