Very interesting and appealing house on a large 1/4-acre fenced corner lot. Entry foyer has tile floor, and a brick wall. Living room is large, light hardwood floor, gas fireplace. The eat-in kitchen is large, too, with vinyl floor, granite countertops, ceiling fan, dishwasher, and a gas range. First floor bedroom has hardwood floor, ceiling fan, fresh paint. Main level bath features tile floor, cer. tile in tub area, linen closet in hall. Behind kitchen is a great surprise : a 14 x 17 family room with pellet stove, very nice vinyl floor, so spacious! The family room, 238 sq. ft., is not included in the total square footage. There's a door from FR to patio & deck and rear & side yards. Tall shade trees in the back yard. Yard is fenced, nicely landscaped. Another highlight of this house is the second floor bedroom and bath. Former third bedroom was made into a huge & gorgeous full bath with glass blocks, tile floor, enormous shower with built-in seat and glass walls, a walk-in closet and built-in drawers. Very cool bathroom. The large bedroom on the second floor has a big, bright bay window, storage under the eaves, and that wonderful adjoining bathroom. There's a rec room area in the basement, painted floor, and the basement laundry room has a walk-out exit to the backyard. Also in the basement is a powder room and a double laundry sink. Large basement storage area in front part of house. Attached garage with opener, parking on street and off, privacy fence outside, deck with hot tub, and seclusion, thanks to trees and shrubbery.
