You'll be AMAZED at how much space this home has and how well laid out it is to maximize space! From the moment you see this home, you'll know there has been attention to care and detail!
As you enter the custom designed screen porch, you'll easily feel at home.
It was designed by the same historical architect who brought the Hotel Pattee back to life.
It features tongue and groove wood ceiling; a remote controlled outdoor ceiling fan and recessed lighting.
The beautiful design is built with wood pegs and and solid wood beams and was designed for minimal maintenance.
There are several ways the porch can be changed aesthetically without costing you a penny - make sure to ask about this! Another feature when building this was to utilize the space under the porch as a safe room instead of a crawl space or filling with sand as most folks do.
The space is completely waterproofed and has electricity, perfect as a wine cave; storing your home canning foods; off-season storage for bulbs and plants that can be dormant in winter, and many more uses! The original wooden front door has the Beaverdale Brick charm of using flagstone to enhance its' beauty.
You will fall in love with the refinished (2014) hardwood floors and the beautiful custom oak woodwork and arched doorways on the main level.
Custom built-in wood shutters (2012) in the living area and main floor bedrooms offer security and privacy as well as block out light for those rare days to have a lazy morning.
The fireplace has been converted to gas burning with remote control and blower that will heat the home if there was ever a need.
All windows were replaced with Anderson windows when the home was completely updated by the previous owners (approx 2008).
The electric & plumbing were updated then, too.
Easy to care Corian kitchen countertops & sink; beautiful oak cabinets with pull out shelves; pull down hidden spice rack and dividers plus soft close drawers.

Popcorn ceilings in the bedrooms and in the living room were removed as well.
