Welcome to 65 Church Road, and this charming craftsman style bungalow sitting on over an acre and a half in a prime Arnold location! Brimming in rich local history, this 100 year old home was the original homestead house on farm land owned by a local family that owned a well drilling business. The farm stood on many acres until the original owner subdivided his land for family members. The current owner is only the 2nd owner to own this home! Enter inside from the broad front porch (updated composite decking 2018) to the beautiful living room with its hardwood floors and fireplace. The living room opens to a large and sunny dining room with custom wainscoting trim. Head back to the updated kitchen (granite, stainless appliances, and great cabinet space as well as walk-in pantry) and then out to the huge screened porch, perfect for relaxing or entertaining. Off the kitchen you will find a bonus room - use as a primary bedroom with an en-suite full bath, a work from home office space, a playroom, or an extra den/family room space. Upstairs are 3 spacious bedrooms with more closet/storage space than you can imagine and the second full bathroom. Hardwood flooring runs underneath the carpet upstairs! The unfinished basement is perfect for the laundry room and storage galore. The driveway has fresh blue stone gravel and space for at least 4 cars to park. Enjoy the huge, flat backyard with space for activities and pets. The landscaping is quite unique as the original homestead owner would travel to many different states to bring back greenery including the Boxwood bushes in the front of the house, the Lilac bushes that divide the 2 driveways and the Azalea bushes in the front & side of the house. Keeping in suit, the current owner planted the Sugar Maple in the front yard, and the Magnolia and Blue Spruce in the backyard to mark special family milestones and occasions.
