Last but not least, the big surprise—the additional 800+ square feet in the basement just waiting for someone’s creative eye! You know old houses….they have old basements—low ceilings and smell musty. Not here. Ceilings are 8′ high and covers a family room, large utility room (all the shelving stays with the house), a room currently used for working out and then another large room that could be made into endless possibilities.
