Welcome to this classic home known as Fostoria. Lovingly cared for since constructed in 1937, this charming home has been updated several times while honoring its original character, most recently this year. Dormering the roof has provided more square footage for personal quarters and reconfiguring the main level by removing walls, expanding the kitchen and adding a family room has given more gathering space. And the huge lot affords PRIME EXPANSION OPPORTUNITY. All elements of the work have been carefully crafted to maintain the historical specificity, scale and quality of the home's original cape cod design.
