Stylishly Remodeled Traditional Ranch with Pool in a Private Setting

Wonderfully spacious and beautifully appointed, this home has it all— a private setting with abundant off-street parking, stylishly remodeled interiors, and delightful venues for outdoor living, including a sparkling pool and sauna. Located on a corner lot of almost one-half acre, the home is surrounded by a tall wall for the utmost in privacy. Newly landscaped gardens and an inviting covered porch create a warm welcome.

Inside, a luxurious ambiance is immediately evident with new walnut floors, layers of crown moldings, and expansive floor-to-ceiling windows. Spanning one convenient level, the floor plan is thoughtfully arranged for grand entertaining as well as everyday living. A central living/dining room is complemented by a large family room, each with fireplace, the resort-inspired grounds are accessed by a seamless connection of sliding glass French doors, and a fabulous chef’s kitchen stands ready to cater it all.

The home’s personal accommodations comprise 4 bedrooms, including a multi-room master suite, two adjoining bedrooms ideal for family members, plus a privately located bedroom perfect for guests. The bathrooms are all luxuriously appointed in a fine array of stones and tiles. A detached studio offers additional flexible space for a fitness center, office, or cabaña. Outdoor venues are plentiful with an enclosed courtyard deck, a sparkling pool and sauna, and a vast side yard for gardening or play. Adding to the appeal of this fine home is its excellent location less than one mile from vibrant Laurel Street for downtown shopping, dining, and even a farmers’ market that takes place every Thursday night through mid-September. Top-rated schools, local parks, and commuter routes are also all within easy reach.
