Fans of Old Delmar take notice when a house like 87 Fernbank Avenue comes on the market. It offers all of the items that today’s busy buyers want – large rooms, great flow, updated bathrooms, renovated kitchen while having the classic feel, high quality finish work and thoughtful touches found only in older homes.

Situated on a large, corner lot this brick Colonial is both gracious and homey. The beautiful bluestone walkway and front steps set the stage for what you find when you open the front door. The entry foyer features a deep coat closet and the arched doorways invite you to explore the home. There is a large living room perfect for spending winter afternoons relaxing in front of the wood burning fireplace. Off the living room is a screened porch that is the ideal location for enjoying a morning coffee in the warmer months. The kitchen is the heart of this home, with the wonderful eat-in nook, the ample cabinets and gorgeous granite counters, not to mention the high-end Viking stove. Right off the kitchen is a large formal dining room and a spacious family room with a vaulted ceiling, sky light and a French door leading to the bluestone patio. An office with large windows is great for when you have to work from home (the pellet stove ensures the space is cozy and warm).

Upstairs the master bedroom features a large closet and an updated bathroom complete with attractive tile and a glass doored shower. The main hall bathroom has also been updated and the two additional bedrooms are generously sized. Don’t overlook the walk up attic as it provides great storage space.

While there is plenty of living space on the first floor, the finished basement is truly a great bonus space. The subflooring was designed to float above the concrete so as to ensure your feet are warm, which is much appreciated. Whether you send the kids down there to play or set up an in-home theater you will love additional room.

The back yard is fenced and features a bluestone patio as well as privacy shrubs. The side yard is big enough to play catch or kick a soccer ball. In-ground sprinklers ensure your grass looks great all season. And we can’t forget to mention the two car garage, a rarity in Old Delmar!

Don’t miss this opportunity to make this wonderful house your home!
