It sits on a completely flat lot which is rare for this neighborhood, making it very easy to maintain the property. It also has a private driveway that can easily fit four vehicles. As you walk up to the home, you'll quickly notice the inviting covered front porch that offers plenty of protection from the elements and a place to relax and swing in the evenings. Once inside, you enter the foyer that has a large closet/mudroom to store shoes, coats and other weather-related essentials. To your left, you enter the completely redone open concept dining room/kitchen combo that has been opened to allow maximum natural light and space to create an ideal area to entertain but also have dinner with the family. The kitchen was completely gutted and remodeled in an open concept mid-century modern minimalist style featuring open shelving, butcher block countertops, large ceramic floor tiles, subway wall tiles and all new stainless-steel appliances. The kitchen also has a breakfast nook, access to the back deck, basement and half bath. You can also enter the living room from the kitchen due to the large doorway the owners had installed to allow for a full 360 degree living experience on the first floor. Speaking of the living room it feels large and airy thanks to the multiple windows and glass rear door which allows ample sunlight to enter and illuminate off the original hardwood floors. It also features a large wood burning fireplace and built in cabinets/entertainment center. The second floor is where all of the bedrooms and the full bath are located. The largest bedroom spans one entire side of the house and has twin closets and a built-in desk area with window that provides a lovely view of the backyard. The next largest bedroom is a good size and can easily fit two twin beds or a queen. The third bedroom is the perfect size for a nursey, but also could be used as a home office or gym. The second floor also has access to the attic via a pull-down ladder system, the attic has lights, electric and built in storage. The basement is partially finished as a fun entertaining space or kid's area. The current owners, a couple of years ago, decided to replace the aging carpet. When doing so, they discovered a miniature tiled shuffleboard court that must date back 50 years. Instead of laying new carpet they refinished and re-waxed the court and laid bumper boards to bring the court back to life. Your guests and family will get a kick out of playing this classic game. The shuffleboard cues and pucks will remain with the house. The basement also has a smaller room that has been turned into a pantry featuring additional shelving, cabinets and a second refrigerator. This allows the main kitchen to remain open and modern but still allow the home to have all the storage and space you'll need and expect to keep your home functioning as smooth as possible. The laundry, furnace and water heater are also in the basement located off the pantry and this has additional built in storage as well. Moving outback, you'll find a large, recently stained back deck that has a built-in bench/eating area and a large pergola. The owners installed a tin roof over the pergola to provide maximum shade and protection from the elements. This also provides relaxing sounds when it rains. The backyard itself is spacious, flat, and beautifully landscaped. The garage is being sold "as is," but has been recently painted and fits 1 car. The garage also features a bonus room that is accessed off the back porch. This room used to be an efficiency apartment several decades ago, but water and gas services have been cut off to the room by previous owners. Currently, it is being used for storage, but it still has electric service and could be used as a home gym or artist space.
