Upon entry you’ll note the fresh paint and flooring throughout. Living room, dining and kitchen are within shouting distance. Whether you’re prepping a meal in the kitchen or relaxing after a long day of work, you can continue the conversation while enjoying the separate spaces located at the front (west) side of the home.

Solid wood cabinets remain in good condition with optimal countertop space and thoughtful placement of the kitchen sink, looking out to your front yard.

The primary bedroom has ample closet space. So much so, its use can be expanded to season storage, arts & crafts and bulky containers. Your king size bed will fit well in this room. The bedroom window overlooks the north side yard.

Across the hall from the primary bedroom, is the second bedroom. It too has great storage but built-in. Plenty enough room for a full sized mattress and night stands.

Second living rooms can dramatically enhance the lifestyle and level of content you have within your home. Perhaps you’re needing a play room, art studio or in-home office. The function of this space might change throughout the years. The important thing is you have it! And it will serve you well throughout the years.

The dedicated laundry space is located just off the back door. There’s plenty of room to add a second refrigerator/freezer, or countertop for folding clothes. Both the washer and dryer convey with the home.

The large corner lot, (fully fenced) has low maintenance landscaping. Dahlias, daylily’s and hydrangeas surround the home, while the south side is freshly tilled and ready for your veggie garden, grass or patio.

You’d think this lot is significantly bigger than advertised (6,250 square feet or 0.143 acres), but it’s not. The owners positioned the 900 square foot shop perfectly so as to not impede on the usable yard space.
