This single-family home, a feature in our Franklin Home Styles by the Decade series, was built in 1950 but has had substantial modern upgrades. The style is a mix of colonial and contemporary, and the property sits on almost two acres of land, allowing for optimal privacy. The property features three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, one half bathroom, excellent storage space, a kitchen skylight, and several other modern amenities.
The eat-in kitchen is truly the gem at the heart of this house, featuring a cathedral ceiling, skylights, a center island, and a slider out to the composite deck. French doors lead from the kitchen into the large living room, where the first-floor master bedroom sits just off to the side. This bedroom features an en-suite bathroom and slider out to the deck.
The second floor, a perfect resting place for extended family, guests, and/or children, has its own full kitchen, a living and dining room, and a full bathroom and bedroom. The third floor boasts a landing (perfect for office or reading space), a bedroom, and a full bathroom. Though the basement is currently undeveloped, it has almost 1,100 square feet of potential. Additional amenities include an in-home sauna, a private backyard, separate entries, tile flooring, hardwood flooring, and a whopping eleven rooms. This home is truly indicative of Franklin’s charm—historic, but modern.
