Property Description

Absolutely the best yard for blocks around! From the moment you enter the fully fenced yard with gorgeous flagstone walkway you will feel at home, especially with the new delightful front covered entry (completed in 2020). This yard is larger and flatter than most single-family homes, and the considerable space makes possible a large home addition in the back! The healthy and vigorous 100-years old willow oak, cared for by a certified arborist, provides fabulous shade to the home for cool summertime fun. The covered back porch and ground-level patio in the backyard make this home excellent for entertaining or hosting large, outdoor parties. There is also an oversized shed and a playground for kids, too. This home is simply wonderful! Spacious end unit townhouse with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Two bedrooms on the top floor with the third in the basement. Owner had custom ductwork installed in the basement, giving an even ceiling height of 7 feet throughout, a true rarity for Old Town basements. All closets are outfitted with Elfa shelving, even the shed. Updated, open concept kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Please ask the agent about the hidden cooking vent already installed for that next kitchen remodel. Dining area off the kitchen with plenty of space for a large table along with a food pantry added to the bottom of basement stairs. Home has beautiful hardwood floors on top 2 floors along with both sets of stairs. Recessed lights in the kitchen, basement, and bathrooms; ceiling fan ready bedrooms; and extra storage added in this home.
