Located in the St. Michael’s section of Union Township, this turn-key home has been lovingly cared for by its current owners who have updated this home at every turn.
A charming Cape Cod located on a lovely tree-lined street, this property features 3 bedrooms and 1 and a half baths. Upon entering the front vestibule you will note beautiful woodwork and the charm of days gone by. The living room is a comfortable space that boasts a neutral color palette, crown molding, a charming decorative alcove and hardwood floors. Moving into the dining room and the heart of the home, you will note the hardwood floors continue on and note how the sliding glass door streams light through this gathering space. A 2009 kitchen renovation included new appliances, chic subway tile backsplash, granite counters and tile flooring. Also on this floor you will note two additional generously sized bedrooms; both featuring hardwood floors and crown molding. The main bathroom underwent a complete renovation in 2008 with new tiled flooring, sink, cabinets and a whitewash treatment to the shower stall tiles.
The second floor features an expansive master bedroom retreat which is highlighted by neutral walls and laminate flooring. Ample closet space is a wonderful feature not often found in homes of this era, but you will see it is not an issue in this residence. A private half bath was renovated in 2008 with a new sink and tiles.
The lower level is an ideal space to let your imagination run wild. A recent make-over transformed this previously dark finished area into a bright and cheerful living space which adds tremendous value to this home’s functional living space. The laundry room and utility room are also located on this floor.
Not to be missed, the outdoor living space of this home is a secret oasis. The spacious deck was replaced in 2011 and looks out onto a private, lovely level yard. In 2008 the garden spaces and plantings were added and a new underground drainage system was employed.
Additional upgrades which should be noted include a new roof in 2009 and new AC installation in 2011 on both floors.
