This sunny, move-in ready 3 bedroom, 1.1 bath ranch is sited on over 4 acres in a cul-de-sac neighborhood set back from the road to maximize privacy. A horseshoe-shaped gravel driveway welcomes visitors to this lovingly-maintained home which is united with its rustic setting by abundant specimen trees, a large deck, and beautiful wooded views throughout the seasons.
The home’s interior features include a floor plan that flows well for day-to-day living while affording the spaces required for family gatherings and other entertaining. The generous, new Andersen windows throughout the home and the two sets of new Andersen oversized sliding glass doors bring natural light into the rooms throughout the day. The focal point of the home is the expansive view of the rear of the property, offered from both the kitchen and living room.
The entrance foyer features a new front door with sidelights on either side, wainscoting, and a coat closet. It connects to the kitchen, living room, and hallway to the bedrooms. As you enter the kitchen from the foyer, the beautiful view immediately captures your attention. The new sliding glass doors frame the rustic woodland setting of the home’s backyard and allows access to the expansive deck. The eat-in kitchen is large and features wood cabinetry with newer stainless steel stainless appliances. Appliances include a GE Profile refrigerator with freezer below, a GE range and microwave, and a Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen also features a large pantry closet and connects to the foyer and family room on one side and to the powder room, access to the finished lower level, and main level garage on the other side of the kitchen.
The view of the rear of the property can also be enjoyed from the spacious living room which is large enough to accomodate a generous seating area and features hardwood floors. New sliders allow access to the deck and the captivating view. There are two focal points to this space: one is the view and the other is the stone surrounded wood-burning fireplace with glass doors, wood storage space, and long mantle. The natural fieldstone of the fireplace surround accent the home’s rustic setting.
The master bedroom features hardwood floors, a double reach-in closet and an en suite bathroom that also opens to the hall. The bathroom features tile flooring, a white marble topped double vanity, tub shower combination, new faucets and fixtures. The two additional bedrooms of the house are on the same level as the master bedroom and feature carpeting, closets and windows overlooking the property.

This area features wall-to-wall Berber-style carpeting, a free-standing wood-burning stove, two closets, new drop ceiling, two windows overlooking the side yard and a door that leads directly outside. Behind the finished area is a large storage area.
