Time spent at home is a delight day in and day out, and when you arrive home, eye-catching curb appeal is sure to inspire pride in ownership. 

Built in 1965, this home showcases the best features of the era while it’s also refreshed with modern additions designed to stand the test of time. Gather in the living room to catch up with loved ones and relax alongside the wood-burning fireplace, while large picture windows fill the space with cheerful natural light. Gleaming hardwoods flow into the sunny dining nook, and of course, the kitchen is right at your fingertips. 

Whip up culinary creations, bake your favorite treats, and host with ease—this impeccably curated kitchen offers seamless flow, abundant storage, and plenty of counter space. Classic finishes, attractive open shelving, and a statement-making skylight add to the dialed-in backdrop.

When it’s time to unwind, the main floor includes a generous primary suite with an ensuite bath, double closets, and even views of the Narrows Bridge. This floor also includes 2 additional bedrooms, and downstairs you’ll find a 4th bedroom/office, a ¾ bath, and a family room. One of this home’s top benefits is the fact that it offers so much versatility; the downstairs could easily become a separate living area, and it’s perfect for offering guests their own private space! There’s also a large garage ready for parking, projects, and storage. This home’s flexible square footage ensures that it’s ready to evolve as your wants and needs change in the years to come.

When the sun comes out and the weather warms up, this property just continues to inspire; spend all summer in the fully fenced backyard oasis rejuvenating, entertaining, playing, gardening, and simply basking in the park-like setting. Host barbecues on the back deck, watch stunning sunsets, and have fun catching glimpses of wild bunnies scampering through the yard and birds picking berries off the bushes. Observe seasonal changes in the greenery with each passing month; rhododendrons blossom in the spring, and the Japanese maple turns red in the autumn. Home-sweet-home beckons from the West End!
