This home’s bedroom shows off a bold, vibrant color palette made all the more striking with crisp white trim, and the adjacent area offers the perfect sunlit spot for a home office. 

One of this property’s major perks is of course the fantastic flexibility it provides. The fully finished, detached 361-square-foot outbuilding shows off a unique opportunity, and it even already has full electricity and plumbing. Use the space as a guest suite, or maybe even an expanded office or home gym! More possibilities await in the detached 1-car garage; use the space as storage, or convert it into a music or art studio (it has great natural light!). Plus, an extra-long driveway offers additional parking.

The fully fenced backyard getaway provides a picturesque setting that offers a tranquil sense of seclusion. Pathways lead from the main house to the detached outbuilding and garage, guiding you through mature landscaping and gardens. If you enjoy gardening (or are looking for a new hobby!), you can put your green thumb to work tending to plants and cultivating fresh fruits and veggies.
