Kick back and relax in the front living room, and head toward the back of the house to gather in the dining area. The spacious kitchen is right at your fingertips here, and this dialed-in space shows off the ideal blend of elegant style and efficient design. Eye-catching columns and trim details create a cohesive feel throughout the home, and elements like the gleaming counters and intricate backsplash are in the mix as well.

There’s even a serene water feature that addres to the ambiance! In the years to come, you could build a couple of raised garden beds to grow fresh fruits and veggies, and a storage shed is ready to help keep your gardening tools safe and organized. A paver patio is ready for al fresco dining whenever the sun comes out, and a fire pit is just waiting for you to roast marshmallows on a crisp fall evening.Plus, there are 2 parking stalls right off of the alley.
