BACKYARD – Your Private Retreat

Enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon delight on your private back patio. The fully fenced yard and well manicured landscape makes the space easy to maintain. Large evergreen tree provides shade and a further feeling of relaxation and wonder.

Detached shed is the perfect place to store your garden tools and seasonal furniture. The backyard is accessible from both the north and south side with locking gates.

In addition to the thoughtful landscape design, I really value that the current owner had the exterior painted just two years ago and roof recently cleaned. Make it your own over the years with more robust and full landscaping, but as it sits now, it is wonderful.

FORMAL DINING ROOM w/ Wood Burning Fireplace & Bay Window

Upon entering the home, you’ll walk in to the formal living room. Complete with a wood burning fireplace and bay window. Most all windows are treated with blinds and have been updated to double pane vinyl windows. Fresh paint throughout the interior, some as new as the last month but everything painted within the last 6 years.

Laminate floors are like new and neutral in color. Make furniture selections that cater to your personal style and taste.


Is it raining out? No problem. Parking in your garage allows you to come and go without entering into the elements of the weather. The washer and dryer were thoughtfully installed on a platform, allowing household chores to be complete with ease and no step down or up!


These aren’t your standard cabinets. They are made out of quality materials. Withstanding wear and tear from general use, kids and pets. The appliances are newer aside from the dishwasher of which functions well.

A full home inspection report is available to Buyer’s after viewing the Home. 

FORMAL DINING – Bring your family and friends

After COVID, many of us found use again for our Formal Dining Room. The dining space allows room to comfortably seat guests of larger size. Openness from the kitchen to dining and side door to the yard, makes for easy coming and going.

The current owners used this space as both a dining room and living room. Mount your television on the wall and use the space for multipurpose – you have the room!

The closet was converted to a small desk/office space. A great place to do homework or work from home. Or maybe a wine/coffee bar. ☕️

SUNROOM – Walls of windows

If you’re a plant lover like me, you are probably imagining how happy your plant babies would be in this sun drenched room. Otherwise, you’re envisioning this space as your living room or gaming center – that works great too. Close the blinds and cozy up with a blanket. Even in the summer you’ll have great temperature control with your central Air Conditioning!

Backdoor, leads you straight to your covered patio.


Each of the three bedrooms has new carpet, fresh paint and consistency in lighting, texture and trim. The first photo you see below is the smallest of the three bedrooms. The home has a circular floor plan and here, you walk through the (third) bedroom to reach the primary and secondary bedroom. Simply close the door and guests will only have access to the bedrooms from the living spaces. Or use this room as your craft room or play room. There are many options here!

The primary bedroom and secondary bedroom have views of the private side yard through the large windows. Newly renovated bathrooms were outfitted with stand up showers for greater accessibility.
