Sunlight fills the living room with a delightful glow as the centrally located fireplace creates a cozy feeling with its stylish white mantel and surround. A wall of brand-new built-in shelving and cabinetry, updated window trims, and recessed lighting add the finishing touches to this inviting space.

The renovation created an open concept kitchen and dining room where the whole family will love to gather.

A new, centrally located staircase leads to the second level with the primary bedroom, another fully renovated bathroom, and another generous family bedroom. Both rooms are sunny and cheerful with brand new hardwood flooring, new closets, doors, windows, and overhead lighting. The bathroom is brimming with carefully selected finishes including a stylish gray vanity, ceramic tile floor, and a beautifully tiled tub with a shower.

More space awaits on the lower level with the newly finished, spacious recreation room with brand new flooring, windows, lighting, baseboard heating, and an improved ventilation system. The utility room offers extra storage to keep you organized. The lower level continues to a versatile sunroom with walls of newly installed windows overlooking the backyard, recessed lighting, a French door, and brand-new vinyl tile flooring. This room works well as a private office or to use as desired. Direct access from the lower-level sunroom to the backyard and driveway means added convenience for managing an active lifestyle.
