This home-sweet-home is truly ready for its next chapter, and a long list of updates ensures that you can move right in with peace of mind. To start with, a new 3-bedroom septic system was installed in 2019. You’ll also find a new furnace, an updated heat pump, an on demand water heater, and a newer electrical panel with underground electrical service. There’s even newer windows, insulation, and siding. And this is just the beginning of this home’s refreshed and renovated features! 

The front door opens up into the main living area, and here you’ll find the light-filled heart of the home. Gorgeous wood ceilings and recessed lighting soar overhead, while newer ceramic plank flooring rests underfoot. A classic stone-accented fireplace anchors this haven; imagine relaxing here while you catch up with visitors or enjoy quiet, laid-back evenings reading a book by the cozy fire! 

In the bright and beautifully updated kitchen, timeless design meets modern sensibilities. Updated appliances boast both style and efficiency, under cabinet lighting shines the spotlight on generous and gleaming counters, and an abundance of crisp white cabinetry makes it easy to keep kitchen essentials organized. Bar seating is perfect for hosting; serve up refreshments at the kitchen island, and when the weather warms up, pop right outside onto the back covered patio. Effortless indoor-outdoor living makes those summer days all the more enjoyable and relaxing! 

A total of 3 bedrooms (each of which features newer carpet) and 1.75 baths make up the rest of this home’s inviting layout. In the primary suite, the primary bath is especially noteworthy—updated interior finishes sparkle with spa-worthy style! Additionally, the 2 other bedrooms feature the same sunlit atmosphere as the primary suite, while offering flexibility in use in the years to come. 

Opportunities for outdoor enjoyment are aplenty here as well, In the front yard, mature landscaping shows off picturesque curb appeal, and to the right side of the house you’ll find a large RV parking area. Established landscaping winds its way along the backyard as well, and while you get to benefit from years of growth, there’s space to add your own favorite plants into the mix if you desire. A new sprinkler is ready to help keep things green, and yard lights add ambiance as soon as the sun starts to set. At the back of the home, a huge covered patio provides the possibility for year-round entertaining. A ceiling fan keeps air moving on hot days, a stone-accented fireplace adds an element of coziness, and the stunning wood ceiling instantly elevates the aesthetic. Relax and rejuvenate in the fresh air, host a crowd for summertime parties, and begin making years of special memories from day 1!
