The two-bedroom listing features Gessford’s signature exterior and a deep bay window nook with a stained-glass inset. The open main floor has a wall of built-in shelving and two sets of French doors opening onto a deep rear brick patio.

If a buyer is just looking for a quaint, efficiently laid-out two-story home, there is an abundance of storage in the eat-in kitchen and the bedroom occupies the entire second floor. The house also has an adjacent parking area and a rear patio.
