The entrance to the main house opens up into the living room. Lined with hardwood floors and cornered by two large windows, the living room is a bright, airy space throughout the entire day. At night, you’re sure to enjoy the wood-burning fireplace, which is surrounded by a white brick hearth and mantle for a country-home feel.
From here, the home flows back into the expansive eat-in kitchen. Recently updated, the kitchen boasts granite countertops, stainless appliances (including a double-door fridge, gas stove, and built in microwave), tile floors for easy clean-up, and wood cabinetry in a natural finish. There is ample space for a large dining table, and the space is well-lit from two windows.

The main house features 3 bedrooms. The first bedroom is at the front of the house and has wall-to-wall carpeting for comfort, a ceiling fan, and windows on two walls for all-day natural light. The second bedroom is just across the hall; it too has a ceiling fan, but uniquely has sleek hardwood floors and direct access to the home’s updated full bathroom The third bedroom is at the very back of the house. Like the rest of the bedrooms, it’s extremely versatile, and could easily serve as a family room, media room, study, or playroom.
The same goes for the “in-law cottage” in the backyard, which is fully equipped with its own full bathroom (with a shower-tub), living space, and tiled kitchenette. Besides housing a family member, the cottage could be rented out, or used as a home office, fitness center, art studio, additional family room, or whatever else you can dream up.
The rest of the backyard is sun-drenched and breezy. It boasts a patio, lawn and garden space, and additional storage shed. That means it’s the perfect place to play, grill, lounge, and dine al fresco. The front yard, meanwhile, is paved for easy maintenance, and just waiting for a garden of potted plants and herbs.
