Updated brick rambler surrounded by a magnificent garden oasis!

The outdoor living space here echoes the lawns of metropolitan botanical gardens. A tranquil water feature serves as a grand focal point, complete with a coy pond and lily pads, and expertly framed with rock and cascading plants. Around every turn is another picturesque vignette accented with rock features and thoughtful plantings bringing this serene getaway to life. From towering evergreens to mature trees and shrubs, this is a garden rich with texture.

Enjoy each and every detail from the large covered patio, perfect for hosting backyard barbecues that are sure to be the highlight of everyone’s summer. A built-in automatic sprinkler system helps maintain the lush green surroundings of this fully fenced yard. This emerald gem is all perched on a secluded-feeling cul-de-sac location with a 2-car attached garage plus additional RV parking.

Inside, the formal living room is bright and cheery introduction as you cross the threshold. Two enormous picture windows bring the outside in and add to the openness of this space. Flagstone flooring in the entry transitions to beautiful light wood flooring, leading your gaze to the substantial stone fireplace. Painted wood beams stretch across the ceiling, bringing texture and movement.


Another large window opens the formal dining room to the outdoors. A rich wood chair rail detail adds a touch of elegance here. Quiet dinners, special celebrations and even a lively game night are all right at home here around your dining table.

Just beyond is the updated eat-in kitchen. Warm wood flooring complements fresh white cabinetry with drawers and storage that go on for days. Tall upper cabinets touch the ceiling and open shelving displays your decorative serving pieces or other accessories.

Light-toned solid surface countertops offer plenty of surfaces for preparing your favorite dishes or even serving buffet-style when you have a house full of company gathered for a special occasion. Two large windows and recessed lighting keep this kitchen pleasant and bright any time of day.


The second main living space is the family room, with its wall of windows and French doors with a spectacular view of the park-like back yard. Enjoy the serene setting relaxing by another angled fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stone. A knotty wood accent wall and trim add interest to this casual space with soft wall-to-call carpeting.

Wood accent walls continue in the flexible bonus room. Style this space as an efficient home office, outfit it to become a dedicated hobby room, or create a private study or sitting room. This room is about possibilities!


This home’s private living area features three spacious bedrooms. The master suite is light and bright with two large windows plus its own private ¾ bath. Add a comfy overstuffed chair or loveseat to create another private space to recharge. A roomy closet keeps your clothing and accessories organized for easy, stress-free mornings.
