Picture-perfect curb appeal ensures that this beauty is a joy to arrive home to time and time again, and as soon as you step in through the front door, this home’s welcoming, light-filled living spaces do not disappoint! In the main living area, a gorgeous fireplace rests alongside beautiful hardwoods and crisp white trim, and rejuvenating sunlight cascades in through large windows. Plus, a tasteful, neutral color palette makes it easy to move right in and begin to decorate and infuse this space with your own personal decor! 

From here the layout unfolds into the dining area and open kitchen. The dining area features exquisite built-ins perfect for storing essentials and displaying special dishware. Even more seating is provided at the counter, which also offers a view of the kitchen that sparkles with dialed-in style. A gas range, self-cleaning oven, super quiet Bosch dishwasher, soft-close drawers and cabinet doors, slide-out garbage and recycle bins, and built-in spice racks in the pantry cabinets are just a few of the customized details you’ll find here to make life easier! 

Wonderful versatility awaits with this home’s 3 bedrooms, and just wait until you see the stunning bathroom! This reimagined space shows off a spa-inspired atmosphere, and impressive tile work, a classic clawfoot bathtub, and vibrant statement pieces are all in the mix for a magazine-worthy scene. This home also comes with a couple of options for adding a second bath—according to the sellers, you could add a wide dormer off the upstairs hall facing the backyard between the 2 bedrooms, or you could convert the basement garage into a family/party room and bath. 

Even more flexible space awaits in the office that’s ideal for working from home, and this expertly designed area features built-in bookcases, cabinets, and file folder drawers. More potential can be found in the extra attic storage upstairs, and the basement garage is the perfect spot for parking or projects (and includes automatic carriage doors). 

Before we move onto showing off the detached garage, there are a few more important features to call out! There is a laundry chute from the bath to the laundry room, and the washer and dryer stay with the home. The hot water tank is just 1-2 years old, and the furnace is about 10 years old and recently had maintenance service. There is also a SimpliSafe alarm system for peace of mind, and RV/boat parking (sellers had a 24’ Class C parked in the space for reference). Also, some of the furniture currently in the house can be purchased from the sellers. 

The newer detached 2.5-car garage has been thoughtfully curated to offer a premium experience! This 884-square-foot space has 200 amp service, 220v outlet, separately 20 amp circuit for each wall, built-in cabinets, and a butcher block countertop for workbench. Storage is fully insulated and heated, and there is a storage attic with pull-down stairs for easy access. 

In the backyard, a storybook wonderland awaits! Stone paths meander through lush landscaping that’s overflowing with vibrant flowers and greenery. Spend sunny afternoons putting your green thumb to work, and relax out in the fresh air on the covered patio. Pure bliss!
