Overview

This big two story craftsman bungalow has one of the absolute best front porches in the area...big, wide, elevated and cozy. It also has a great layout and has been impeccably maintained. The living room fireplace is flanked by custom built-in cabinets. The kitchen cabinets were new 2019. Most appliances are 2018 and newer, Tankless gas W/H 2017, plumbing 2003, electric updated 2010. Kitchen pantry is enormous (could be a half bath).There are 2 bedrooms and one bath both down and up. All closets are large! Master has two walk-ins and a bonus room. There is big new custom built shed in the back. Backyard is charming and private with no two story neighbors. You don't see this flexible floorplan much in the area with the ample size and two bedrooms on the first floor. It's a wonderful home.
