Property Description

Do not miss your chance to fall in love with this charming historical bungalow with modern amenities, providing plenty of storage and versatility! From top to bottom, this 1.5 story home with full basement is overflowing with architectural details, giving the home a photogenic charm that simply makes it a pleasure to be in. This well-situated home welcomes you with top notch curb appeal thanks to a well-established landscape and illuminated low-maintenance composite front porch to take advantage of delightful neighborhood views. As you enter its arched doorway, you will find a comfortable living room featuring original hardwood floors, a dramatic white brick gas fireplace, crown molding, and tons of natural light. The upgraded kitchen offers stainless-steel appliances, soothing paint colors, white cabinets with pull out inserts, white mini subway tile, and beautiful granite countertops that pull the whole space together. Adjacent you will find the dining area with access to another composite deck out back with a gorgeous stone patio, well-maintained landscape, and one car garage. This home includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths with deep closets and custom shelving. The main bathroom has been completely remodeled with breathtaking tile that extends to the ceiling, custom pull-out shelving and the original medicine cabinet. The 2nd floor offers the third bedroom, a convenient half-bath, and a bonus space for an office, den, or playroom. The large unfinished basement provides an abundant amount of space for storage, a workshop/utility room, and an exercise room with a full bath/laundry room. This creates the perfect in-home gym that is conveniently separated from the rest of the house, extending the amount of potential this home has with an egress window. Peace of mind maintenance includes a bathroom remodel in 2019, dishwasher and microwave in 2018, fridge and durable kitchen floors in 2020, updated upstairs half-bath in 2020, high-efficiency furnace and AC installed in 2019, and the roof was replaced around 2015 with a 50-year transferable warranty. This lovely turnkey home is a perfect canvas for anyone who loves home decor and design! You will not want to miss this opportunity! We will be active on the 03/17 and will allow showings on 03/18 through showing time.
