Take a moment to explore this home’s 5 standout features: 

1. Several smart updates ensure that this home is ready for its next chapter. 

Move right in, unpack, and get to decorating; everything else has been taken care of with this turnkey residence! Upgrades include new lighting, new carpet, new interior paint, new windows in the bath, a new dishwasher, a new oven, and even a new rock gas fireplace with beautiful built-in bookcases. There’s even a new fully fenced yard with sprinklers, and this home also received a new roof in 2019. 

2. The heart of the home shows off magazine-worthy design and style. 

The front door opens up right into the main living area, where a flowing open-concept layout and vaulted ceilings let the space feel even larger. In the living/great room, the statement-making stone-accented fireplace is flanked by beautiful built-in bookcases. Adding your own personality to the space is as easy as arranging your book collection, framed photos, and favorite decor on the open shelves.

From here, the dialed-in kitchen and adjacent dining area are merely steps away. The kitchen is truly a masterpiece, characterized by modern elegance and straight from the glossy pages of a home decor magazine! A brand new oven and dishwasher add top-notch efficiency, and details like the charming farmhouse sink, gleaming counters that offer high contrast, and the neat tile backsplash all let this haven shine like new. 

3. Comfortable bedrooms are ready for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. 

A total of 3 bedrooms and 1.75 baths are included, with each space offering its own unique design. The primary suite is especially spacious, with even room for a sunny sitting area. 

4. Idyllic outdoor setting boasts plenty of space to spread out and cultivate. 

When it comes to possibilities, the sky’s the limit with this half-acre property! An expansive lawn stretches out from the deck and patio, and mature greenery that surrounds the property offers a scenic view while providing a sense of privacy. You could easily keep things simple and as is; highlights include the huge deck that provides seamless indoor-outdoor living between the kitchen/dining area, as well as the fully fenced yard that’s ideal for letting pets and little ones roam. However, there’s plenty of opportunity to get creative, too—design elaborate landscaping, build raised garden beds to grow your favorite fruits and veggies in, construct a play area… and more!
