As you step inside you will immediately feel the warmth that this home has to offer.

Imagine cozying up in a chair with a great book or visiting with a best friend in this living room that features lovely wood wrapped windows and an abundance of natural light.

Everywhere your eyes take you will be details unmatched. Even a staircase can make for a beautiful focal point in a home!

This home has been updated with new interior paint in pleasing, contemporary colors that sooth and relax. Just imagine the gatherings you will have here and new memories that will be made in your home…

And since we are talking about convenience, the laminate hardwoods on the main floor will be a snap to clean with a Swiffer! No messy carpets in high traffic areas to worry about!

The bedroom on the main floor is delightful with new paint and carpet, but if you don’t really need 3 bedrooms, this room located just off the formal dining would also make for an excellent den, office or bonus media room. What would you use this room for?

 

Head up the custom designed stairway and find the first bedroom you may want to claim as yours when you see the vaulted ceiling and french doors that lead out to the balcony. Let’s see what is beyond these french doors….

This is the third bedroom closet and the ceiling fan in here will keep you cool while you slumber through the summer 🙂

 

Head outside to the expansive deck that can be accessed by the front porch, the stairs from the balcony or the french doors from this dining room. It is so convenient to have a deck that wraps around the home and also you can say it is less yard to mow. Spend more time doing what you love!

 

And finally, if you’ve been searching for a home with plenty of off street parking, well, you found it just outside the 2 car detached garage with alley access. Take this gate to the kitchen door or the door from inside the garage to load in your groceries with ease!
