We have looked long and hard, and since we are empty nesters now our needs are somewhat different. After much looking and disappointment, we found it.
It is a 3bed/3bath with 24'x24' attached and heated garage. The driveway is three cars wide, and all of the concrete work to add the third garage stall is already done.
It is not a split level, which we like and finished sq.ft. is around 2100.
Open floor plan up top, with a large living room area perfectly amenable to a tv/speakers. Rare these days from what we have seen.
Downstairs is a third bedroom and bath - plus the mother lode. The family room is 18' x at least 30'. Part of it is tiled, and roughed in for a wet bar. This house could easily be converted to a 4 legal/+1 not legal bedroom if we were to sacrifice the glorious family room.
Great neighborhood, walking distance to a bar and a gas station. A Fareway is opening up just down the road this summer.
It was built in 2011 and is in perfect condition. Nice fully privacy fenced backyard with a shed, minimal landscaping so mowing is easy.
Bonus: hardly any white walls anywhere. All tile is real tile, all wood is real wood. Whoever finished this house out really hurt themselves on the resell side of things by not adding additional bedrooms - but since the result is the beautiful family room in the last picture, the wife and I are getting pretty much exactly what we want out of a house.
We are very excited!
I have a signature.
