Welcome home, your search is over! This beautifully renovated home is a dream come true! As you walk up the pathway leading to the front door, you are greeted by an inviting front porch, just the place to relax and greet your neighbors. As you enter the foyer, you'll find beautifully restored hardwood flooring that continues throughout the home. The shiplap in the entry way and staircase, along with the craftsmanship of the built-ins add to this home's stunning character. The living room features a large fireplace and front porch doors, providing a cozy place to unwind. If entertaining is your desire, the designer kitchen is just what you need for cooking a fabulous meal! White shaker cabinets and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, along with granite counter tops, subway back-splash, and a farm sink complete this space. The kitchen/dining area has an open feel, with an abundance of light coming from two large windows and sliding glass doors which lead to the back patio where you can enjoy the backyard view. Upstairs you will find three nice sized bedrooms. One is currently being used as an office space - the perfect place to work from home. The primary bedroom is spacious and has three closets. Current owners are using one just for shoes! The basement is bright and dry, providing plenty of space for storage, a workout room, or playroom. There is plumbing already in place for the addition of an extra bath should an update be in the plans. The house was renovated in 2018. All appliances, as well as the heater, central air, and water heater are new as of 2018. This home will not last long! Don't miss this opportunity to own a well maintained, completely updated home, in a welcoming, walkable neighborhood! Sellers are relocating in September and are having a home built. They are asking for a flexible settlement date with the possible option to rent back. Potential buyers are also welcome to make offer on furniture currently within the home.
