The spacious back yard is a surprising feature of this home, and with a nice mix of sun and shade you can surround yourself with flowers or hang out with an iced tea and a good book beneath the trees.

The basement has walk-out access to the yard, so woodworking projects or gardening supplies are easy to get in and out.

The front porch is a great spot to sit and and wave at strolling neighbors and their dogs, but when you step inside you'll immediately see the period details that give the home its charm--beautiful maple floors (just refinished), French doors, bulls-eye moulding, and a carved newell post at the stairs.

The broad bay window is like a giant smile in the room, bringing plenty of sunlight in, and providing a great view out of thunderstorms and snowfalls.

The living room leads right into a spacious dining room, which features built-ins and a pass-through to the secondary kitchen.  There's also a convenient full bath on this floor.

The kitchen offers updated cabinets and counters, as well as brand new stainless appliances; and there's enough room for a small island or a less formal dining table.  The original tin ceiling adds more period flair.

The secondary kitchen space, which overlooks the back yard, is Command Central for the serious cook--no distractions, just efficient space.

Just off the kitchen, and leading out to the driveway and back yard, is a nice little mud room--an essential feature in New England

The larger bedroom has southern and western exposure, so it stays light and bright throughout the day.

The second bedroom would be great for a home office, or if you're the fancy type, you could create a splendid dressing room here.

Just down the hall, past another built-in, is the third bedroom...

...and a large, updated three-quarter bath.

And there's even more space above--a cavernous attic for all your holiday decorations, Rubbermaid bins of winter clothes, and old school projects you just can't throw out.

The basement is solid and dry, with a nice workbench and the aforementioned walk-out access to the yard.  The furnace, oil tank, and hot water heater are all less than 7 years old, so you can spend your money on furniture and decor instead of systems updates.

This comfortable home is very close to some of Manchester's best amenities--the Currier Museum of Art, McIntyre Ski Area (yes, a ski area in the middle of town!), the Weston Observatory (and its trails), and of course Derryfield Park.

Derryfield Park, just a short 3-block walk away, is one of the great open spaces in the city and, as everyone knows, one of the best places to watch the sunset or catch the fireworks on the Fourth of July.  There are also tennis courts, a playground, and various ball fields available.
