Classic design meets contemporary sensibilities with this Old Town beauty that’s sure to inspire pride of ownership each time you pull in the driveway. The 2-car detached garage offers convenience, and neat landscaping with a sprinkler system frames this home-sweet-home, promising low-maintenance living. The covered front porch not only shows off new decking, but it also offers the perfect spot to visit with guests out in the fresh air! 

The front door swings open to reveal dialed-in style designed to impress. Gleaming hardwood floors flow from the entryway into the formal living room where a grand gas fireplace anchors the scene. The formal dining room is just steps away, and here, a stunning coved ceiling and built-in cabinetry instantly elevate the atmosphere—dinner parties, celebrations, and holiday gatherings are all extra-special in this haven of sophistication! 

The gourmet kitchen is right around the corner, and this expertly designed space is an entertainer’s delight. New stainless steel appliances rest alongside shimmering counters in addition to not one but two sinks! The gorgeous cabinetry is especially remarkable—not only does it offer abundant storage, but windowed doors in one section offer the perfect place to display treasured dishware and decor. Bar-style counter seating is ready for laid-back meals and casual hangouts, and from here you can drift into the family room for cozy relaxation alongside another gas fireplace. Plus, a new furnace with A/C provides another way to keep things comfortable all year long. 


A sun-drenched staircase leads the way to the second level, where plush new carpet flows from one comfy retreat to the next. The primary suite offers opportunity for resort-worthy rest and rejuvenation, and the extra-large bedroom layout expands even more with the private view deck. On sunny days, sunbathe on a lounge chair in peace and quiet, and each night before snuggling into bed, enjoy fresh air while you admire Commencement Bay and the sparkling lights in the distance. A massive walk-in closet is also yours, and the ensuite bath is ready for wellness routines and sumptuous bubble baths! A Jack & Jill bathroom connects the two additional bedrooms, and the upper level also includes a laundry room with tons of storage for household essentials. 

This property also shows off outdoor space for putting your green thumb to work, and you can choose to keep things simple or add your favorite plants and flowers into the artfully designed landscaping. A partially covered patio boasts a picturesque getaway ready for grilling up dinner at your next barbecue, and when you’d like to enjoy more outdoor space, the Ruston Way waterfront is just blocks away!
