A welcoming and wonderfully quaint front porch greets you when you arrive home, and the gorgeous, original front door swings open to reveal an entryway and formal living room. Original molding delights the eye and adds instant old world charm, and cheerful natural light streams in through updated vinyl windows. A beautiful brick-accented fireplace anchors this inviting scene, and the layout seamlessly unfolds into the formal dining room where those who love to entertain are especially in for a fabulous treat! Here you’ll find more than enough space for a full-sized dining set, so you can host elaborate holiday feasts and memorable dinner parties; there’s room for everyone! 

In the spacious kitchen, an abundance of storage rests alongside sleek appliances, and eye-catching elements like the subway tile backsplash and stained glass detailing add visual intrigue. The smart layout ensures that everything you need is easily within reach, and the pass-through window and flowing layout let the kitchen feel effortlessly connected to the adjacent family room. Bar-style seating offers a laid-back dining option, and this haven is sure to become the heart of the home! Rejuvenating sunlight cascades in through skylights overhead and a wall of windows, while a stately fireplace on one end of the room adds instant coziness on chilly winter nights. Snuggle up here for movie marathons on blustery fall days, and enjoy game nights while the comfort of home warms you up alongside a roaring fire. Perfection! 

This home also includes 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, and the primary bedroom upstairs provides a unique list of offerings. The extra-large bedroom layout has more than enough space for a sitting area and a desk, and French doors swing open onto a 2nd story deck so you can take in the fresh air whenever the mood strikes. Another major highlight is the massive walk-in closet—you’ll find that a built-in organization system makes it easy to move right in and unpack, and keeping things neat and tidy no matter what season of clothing is required is as easy as possible! 

While the rest of this property has many practical considerations (a 2-car garage and RV parking are in the mix), you’ll find the opportunity to let your imagination run wild with all of the projects you might like to tackle. In the private backyard, a partially covered patio with a covered outdoor kitchen is ready for barbecues and epic summertime parties, and you really have the space to curate the outdoor oasis of your dreams. Mature landscaping awaits your green thumb, and a huge greenhouse is absolutely perfect for starting seedlings in the early spring and keeping gardening supplies organized.
