Home is located on 9,700sqft lot with mature trees. It not only has a covered front porch but also a covered balcony that is accessible from the 2nd floor.

As we are seeing more families working remotely from home, more buyers are looking for home offices or versatile spaces that can be converted or re-purposed for their needs.

Notice the drawers to the right of the range - ideal for stacking pots & pans. Door on the left is to the pantry. (Note: there is under-cabinet lighting that agent forgot to turn on for the photos).

Breakfast fills with lots of natural light with the window overlooking the backyard. Notice porcelain tile continues throughout the 1st floor, however, this home has NEVER FLOODED and flood insurance will NOT be a loan requirement for a buyer. Owner simply likes the feel, durability, and longevity of tile and its matching colored grout. Tile in the eat-in breakfast area is ideal for cleaning up after "little one's messes." Doorway on the right leads to Family Room.
Spacious powder bathroom is conveniently located off the breakfast area.

Long wall across from the wall of windows is ideal for couch, bookcases, entertainment center, or a sectional sofa. Looking at the fireplace at the end of the Family Room, it is easy to imagine stockings hanging from the fireplace mantle and children excitedly rushing down the stairs Christmas morning.
