MERIDEN — The home at 216 Parker Ave. in Meriden was built in 1940 when homes were built to last...and it has! The present owners have maintained it, improved, and remodeled while still keeping the character of the '40s when it was built.
Located in a great east side neighborhood this 4 bedroom, 2 bath brick Cape, with nearly 2,000 square feet should be seen soon because it may not last long on the market.
Love to create delicious meals? The bright, sunny kitchen has been updated with granite counter tops, a brand new gas range, new floor, and all new cabinets.
The delightful touch of nostalgia has been preserved by the hand-printed wallpaper design and the classic wainscoting in the dining room, the built-in bookshelves and gas fireplace in the living room, hardwood floors, the milkman door, stone walls and mature plantings.
The home also features a spacious master bedroom on the main floor featuring 3 closets. There is also a den with pine tongue and groove paneling and 9 foot ceilings, and a newly remodeled bathroom.
There is a newer furnace, rebuilt chimneys, newly paved driveway, a garden level patio with built-in firepit, central air, a wood-burning fireplace in the heated 300 sq. ft room in the dry basement, and access to the garage. The lot is almost three-tenths of an acre.
The home is only two-tenths of a mile from Israel Putnam Elementary School and a mile from Maloney High School. It is connected to public water and sewer.
The list price for this home is $350,000. The most recent monthly property tax payment is $494.
