The Middlesex Canal ran along the property line and the land was the site of “Gardner Locks”. The present owners lovingly maintained and updated the original home with an addition in 1997 - an expansive family room, entry hall and eat-in kitchen. Beamed ceilings in the living and dining room, a home office with a separate entrance, fireplaces and charming butler's pantry add to its unique character. The second floor includes a master bedroom suite with fireplace plus 3 additional bedrooms and two baths. Spacious front and back yards, front patio and water gardens provide great space for outdoor play and entertaining. This welcoming home will delight and surprise you for years to come!
