252 Decker Avenue has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and three floors! This home was built in 1920, giving it the fantastic classical home feel, but a modern 2016 look.

Before we get into the amenities nearby with the house being close to Forest Avenue, let us describe the inside!
Walk up the petit brick stairs and into the home’s front door. This will lead you to the tiled foyer. The modest space will be perfect for your mudroom ensemble. To the left of the foyer is the living room-dining room combination. With hardwood floors and windows, the very large room has lots of great light. All the windows in the home are framed with wood molding, giving that classic 1920s home look we discussed above.
A unique feature within the living room is the closet space, idea to hide belongings you do not want to be seen lying around and keep them out of sight: DVDs, blankets, games, etc.
Pass the dining room, to the rear of the home, you will find the first floor’s full bathroom and the home office. The home office has hardwood floors. This space can be converted into a playroom, family room, small guest room, or kept as an office. The option is there got you!
The eat-in kitchen is to the right of the dining room. It has wood cabinets, granite countertops, and a brick-style tiled backsplash. It is going to make the perfect spot to prepare meals with the stainless steel appliances: refrigerator and stove.
Follow the tiled floors of the kitchen through the slider doors to the deck and backyard. The yard is fenced in with both a paved and grass area.
