The kitchen itself is brimming with efficiency, and you’ll find large counters alongside generous cabinetry that promises room for all of your kitchen essentials. You can easily leave this spacious kitchen as is, or you might choose to upgrade it with new counters, a new color palette, a stylish backsplash, light fixtures that make a statement… the sky’s the limit! 

Even more flexible living space awaits in the large attached sunroom. Natural light pours in at every turn, all while offering views into your garden. You could use this inviting space as an additional living room, or transform it into a hobby space, an art studio, a playroom, or an indoor hangout with tabletop games! This home also features a half-story that could be finished to add more living space or another bedroom in addition to this home’s existing 2 bedrooms. 

This property’s outdoor offerings are also blossoming with possibility, and in addition to ample parking, you’ll find a huge yard to bring your dream garden to life. Beautiful plants and fruit trees can be found throughout the lively garden beds, and you can put your green thumb to work tending to existing greenery while adding your own favorite plants into the mix.
