Property Description

Its red door stands out like a lighthouse in the foggy frustration of your house hunting expedition. You've been lost for a long time, going into one "just not me" house after another. Until this beacon of "home" cuts through the confusion same as the pizza guys wheelie thing slices your black olive and pepperoni pie while you salivate into your mask like a trained squirrel. Yes, this is it. Stately, big, with all the checkboxes you didn't even know were checkboxes already checked off. A fenced yard able to contain even the wildest pack of pugs. A big two car garage with two garage doors just like you've always dreamed about (strange dreams, but hey, they came true). Even an upstairs deck to relax and observe the neighbors like British royalty from a viewing platform - can't have the peasants get too close. Now enter through the welcoming poppy red door (and notice the fancy half moon window with scrolly decoration - priceless). The big living room has a half wall to stop guests from just charging in (without changing direction). It also doubles as a privacy screen for drive by looky-loos when the door is open or an effective wind block. The living room, you will notice, is bright and large, the way a good living room should be. Right behind this sizeable room is an equally sizable kitchen with an expansive wall of highly functional cabinets and counter space. And.... a pantry closet for savvy coupon shopping stock-up storage. Yes, room for the table and even the chairs to go around it (stand up tables went out of fashion in the late 80's with avocado appliances). Also good circular flow from the living room to the kitchen - allowing sugar-high children to run round and round until the tank runs low. Downstairs also features two bedrooms each exceeding an impressive 100 square feet. Impressive considering that's more square footage per bedroom than an entire colony of prairie dogs occupy. And there's a lot of them, trust us. Full bath featuring ceramic tile (because cheap fiberglass isn't your thing) and new fixtures (who wants a sink someone else spit in? No one.). Head upstairs and your already weak knees may just buckle (not from the climb, but from the excitement - you've got the cardio to handle the stairs). Three MORE bedrooms (you'll need a full hand to count them all, so hopefully you didn't lose a thumb in a tragic bowling accident) and another full bath (yes, with more stunning ceramic tile) AND a family room or upstairs play room (with door to outside upper deck). What do you do with so much space? If you're single, you get to sleep in a different room Monday - Friday. If you've got people, spread them out (our government says that's a good idea now anyway). Did we say five bedrooms? Just checking. Not done, yet. There's a full basement below this monster, that is bright, clean and can handle all the overflow from upstairs (perfect for hoarders). Not sure what else we can say about this. You know it's the right house. Of course, so do 27 other frustrated house hunters. So don't delay. Get 'er done now and make it yours.
