Accent on Views!


This mid-century all brick ranch is perfectly situated on 3 acres. Mature maple, oak, and hickory trees create a wonderfully picturesque scene to enjoy from the patio in the backyard or from any of the 7 picture windows this home offers. All of those windows help make this home feel light and bright and the hardwood floors and fireplaces bring a sense of warmth and “home” to this house. Light a fire in the living room fireplace to create the perfect ambiance for relaxing on those cool evenings. Take advantage of the separate dining room—the perfect place to gather with family and friends. The kitchen offers stainless steel appliances and an eating area overlooking the gorgeous yard. All 3 bedrooms are good sized and offer plenty of natural sunlight from the large windows. Need a little extra living space? No problem! Finish off the full basement, which offers an additional fireplace, and create a family room, rec room, or anything else that suits your needs. Entertain guests in the lovely 3 season room or head out to the patio when the weather is nice. Enjoy the beautiful views of trees—not neighboring homes! The 2 car attached garage is an additional perk with this home as well and with 3 acres to work with, there is plenty of space for horses and outbuildings! Don’t wait, this is the one!
