A paved driveway and covered porch welcome you to this bright, comfortable home set on a quiet street ending in a cul-de-sac. Built in 2011 and refreshed with all new carpet and interior paint; the house is gleaming. Step onto hardwood-style laminate floors with an open staircase leading upwards on one side. The main floor is an open concept living area great for friends and family while the bedrooms are tucked securely upstairs.
The spacious kitchen features stainless appliances, maple cabinets, and a convenient walk-in pantry, as well as a double sink with a window above allowing for natural light and a backyard view while washing dishes and preparing meals. Pull a stool up to the bar counter for casual meals or to chat with the cook. The kitchen connects to the laundry area too which leads into the double-car garage. The living and dining space present neutral tones to accommodate all kinds of color schemes. A half bath with a pedestal sink completes this cozy and comfortable main floor.
Head up the open staircase lit by a chandelier and little square window to reach the four bedrooms in the home. A carpeted landing connects the bedrooms with a full bath featuring a nice big mirror, and a vanity with counter space. With four bedrooms you might find yourself setting up a pretty guest room, or even establishing an office space. The fourth bedroom and second full bath belong to the master suite. The master bedroom includes a walk-in closet while the master bath includes a bathtub with a bright white tub surround and detachable shower head for handheld or overhead use. The vanity is spacious with a good combination of drawers and cupboards for storage.
A wooden fence encompasses the backyard complete with young trees for shade, an open lawn for sunshine and play, and a covered patio.
