The impressive move-in ready home has been updated both aesthetically and functionally. Those improvements are more than just a little paint. The owners sunk around $65,000 into a total renovation between 2017 and 2018. Upgrades include new kitchen floors, two HVAC systems, paint, new garage doors, dormers and porch railings.

One of this home’s many unique aspects is its dual staircases. There’s one near the front entry and another on the back side. This convenient feature allows access from multiple points in the house and is great for guests trying not to bother the family.

That tree-covered land is actually an additional lot that is included in the list price. This prime property could be sold to a builder or used as a place to build a mother-in-law’s suite or even a treehouse.
