Tucked away from the road on a small enclave, the five-bedroom Colonial at 516 Weed St. is a well-loved family home on a private 2.5-acre setting.

A pretty foyer with timeless dentil crown molding opens into a sunken formal living room. Centered around a wood-burning fireplace with a flagstone surround, the living room is generously sized and has access to an expansive stone terrace through two sets of French doors.

With plenty of Southern exposure, the living room is guaranteed ample sunlight all day long.

Steps up from the living room is a cozy dining room featuring classic paneling and a large bay window.
