This is the big, well-constructed and well-maintained, and beautifully updated home you have been looking for! It is located within walking distance of Kimberly High School, J.R. Gerrits Middle School, and Janssen Elementary School on a quiet street with great neighbors. It comes with appliances and every inch has been scrubbed, cleaned, and painted, making it move-in ready. Your new home is much bigger than it looks from the street: 2,778 s.f. including four or five bedrooms (all on the first and second floors), two full baths, a bonus first-floor family room, and a huge finished basement. Add to all that a walk-in attic, new deck in the backyard for entertaining, a fenced-in backyard, a spacious two-car garage, and a private second-floor deck, and it all adds up to a real winner. This was a luxury home when it was built in 1970, and it shows in the high-quality construction and workmanship you won't find in most of today's new construction. It features a brick exterior on the entire first floor (not just the side facing the street), one-inch thick plaster walls, built-in dressers in three bedrooms, custom cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms, durable oak-framed windows, beautiful oak trim, and high ceilings (in the basement, too!) Improvements over the years include a new roof, siding, soffits, and gutters for both the house and garage in 2001, fiberglass exterior doors, central air conditioning, a finished basement (with insulated walls, finished floors, and upgraded electrical service), fiberglass shower enclosure in the second-floor bathroom, and updated lighting in many rooms. In preparation for sale, the entire interior of the house was repainted, new Pergo Gold flooring installed in the kitchen and dining area, carpets professionally cleaned, screens repaired, new window treatments installed in bedrooms, and a home warranty policy paid for by the Seller that will pay if repairs are needed for the furnace, hot water heater, air conditioner, appliances and more for the first year. The front sidewalk and about half of the driveway are brand new and new landscaping was installed. Everyone who visits this home is amazed by the amount of room inside: every room is bigger than you usually get in new construction, and there are more and bigger windows. The first floor boasts a large (21'x15') living room flooded with natural light from two sides plus an equally large (20'x15') bonus room facing the backyard, also with windows on two walls. The bonus room was renovated in 2009 and features a modern gas fireplace, built-in cherry cabinets and wine rack, crown molding, and a gorgeous Thomasville wood floor. The basement is huge, dry, has high ceilings, and is spotless. It features a large living room, exercise/bonus room, laundry room (with sink and counter), carpentry room with workbenches, and two storage rooms. This is a 1.75 story home, not 1.5 stories. You will notice the difference the moment you reach the top of the stairs. Three large bedrooms each have built-in dressers and closets, three community closets (one cedar-lined) open to a wide hallway, an updated full bathroom, and a huge walk-in attic large enough to store furniture, beds, Christmas decorations, clothing and more. One bedroom has a door leading to a 12' x 20' second-story deck, with safe and secure iron railings, perfect for reading or private sunbathing.
