Abundant space for entertaining guests and quiet relaxation await, and 2 spacious living areas are ready to be infused with your unique personal style.

Stainless steel appliances offer modern freshness, crisp white cabinetry and shimmering granite counters showcase eye-catching contrast. There’s more than enough space for customization, whether you plan to add a kitchen island, shelving along the wall, or even a bistro dining set.
Each of this home’s 3 bedrooms offer refreshed comfort thanks to new carpets, and the master bedroom even has its own large walk-in closet and an ensuite bath with a skylight. Additionally, both of this home’s bathrooms reflect the same immaculately refreshed and maintained quality you’ll find throughout the rest of the home!
