This home is hitting the market for the first time in more than 50 years

Sometimes it’s clear that a house has been well lived in and loved for a long time. That’s certainly the case for this home in Pingree Park, which, according to the realtor, has been with the same family for over 50 years.

But this home will soon leave the family as it recently hit the market for $175,000.

The modest brick colonial on Iroquois Street has some signs of wear and tear around the gutters and soffits but otherwise seems to be in great shape. It has a lovely little dormer window and a two-columned portico on its wide, tiled front porch. There’s a paved driveway leading to a detached one-car garage and huge yard that takes up an entire side lot. It’s also directly across the street from Pingree Park itself.

We’re a sucker for built-in cabinets and shelving, and this home has plenty of them—in the living room, in the pantry, on the entryway between the dining room and office, in the office itself, on the second story landing, and in the hallway.

The 2,384-square-foot, four-bedroom residence also has hardwood floors throughout, a nice old-fashioned kitchen, and tons of storage space in the attic and basement.

4775 Iroquois Street is listed with Gordon Hawkins of Hawkins Realty Group for $175,000.
