This wonderful Tudor-style Craftsman at 656 Lake Drive SE marks the entrance of Historic Fitch Place and Windsor Terrace, abutting Heritage Hill. This well-built grand three-story home features site-cut white oak flooring and trim throughout. The main living area has been opened up a bit to create a nice flow from kitchen to dining room to living room for entertaining guests. The luxurious double-sized second floor bedroom used to be two rooms. The third bedroom nestled into the third floor surrounded by a bonus workshop is also quite large and comfortable. Two off-street parking spots and a small garage are a rarity and a special advantage.
