Four bedrooms and three full baths, all remodeled for today’s lifestyle. Super stylish and updated contemporary split with private master suite with a wood burning fireplace.. A first floor family room with skylights and french door exit blend seamlessly.  The living room and dining room complete this super first floor.  Light is everywhere and so is privacy.

Open kitchen, with gas cooking if you must cook indoors. A huge, six-foot fridge to hold everything from that Costco run.

The vaulted main-level family room has skylights! So much thoughtful space.

You can see views of multiple decks and patios from this fantastic space.  The colorful stairs lead to the master bedroom retreat space.

Moonlights, skylights, newer windows, and multiple sets of french doors — just so sweet.


Reclaimed wide-plank hardwood floors in the master bedroom, rich original floors in the must have places!

Three more bedrooms and an updated hall bath.  Two full baths up.

Downstairs, there is livable space and windows everywhere. Also, another finished room, the original “rec” room.  This leads to the lower level of the addition—A library or recreation room with cool loft-like bookcase with a ladder is just a visual treat. A room for extended family, so much potential. A set of french doors lead to the most incredible outside space!  A hand-crafted real working fireplace to sit in front of or even cook on!  No little fire-pit here!

Two exits also make this perfect for an “income property” or an in-law suite.  Real potential because the spaces are already built.
