This Country retreat off Germantown Road feels like the best of rural living in Washington county. A private road ends at this delightful daylight ranch home tucked on 2 acres with mature fir trees and easy-care landscaping backs up to farmland. The quiet lifestyle is immediately evidenced by the pair of swings hung from sturdy tree branches near the attached garage.
The exterior of the house has been freshly painted. Walk up the cement walkway to the entry and discover generous rooms made for sharing with family and friends. Step on into easy-care laminate flooring throughout the entry, kitchenand living spaces. To the immediate right is a breakfast nook perfect for a casual dining table & hutch and the largebay window brightens up the room year-round. The generous pantry cabinets bridge the nook and kitchen while the peninsula provide an easy spot to pull up a stool for a quick snack or keep the chef company. A built-in wall ovenas well as counter cooktop are within easy reach of the refrigerator, forming a handy L-shaped spot for cooking and baking.
Expansive windows in the dining and living areas look out over the private backyard. A large table for big group gatherings easily fits in the dining area, flanked by a pair of built-in whitewashed wood corner cabinets. The rooms have a great room feel, and indoor/outdoor living is just a step away on the wood deck. Soaking in the serenity of living among the trees with a cup of morning coffee or a sunset toast are possible here! The double-pane vinyl windows do their job keeping the home comfortable from the elements. Down the road one can add a new wood stove as well for cozy fall and winter evenings!
Continue down the hall to the three bedrooms, all are carpeted for comfort. The primary bedroom at the end of thehall has an attached bathroom for privacy. The second and third bedrooms to the right of the hall are cozy, quiet and overlook the back yard. The guest and shared bathroom is perfectly located in addition to two hall storage closets.
Great spaces await on the lower level, accessible via stairs in the kitchen located near the door to the attached garage. Storage options abound in the daylight basement, from the huge wall of built-ins in the main pass through area, to plenty of wall space for bookshelves and more in the family room. Plenty of room for movie night here with large furniture plus additional spaces at each end for ping pong and work from home. There are endless options of how to use this space! The door to the cement patio is an invitation to let the fun continue from the inside of the house to thebackyard and beyond.
A large fourth bedroom - perfect for guests, older “kids” or for multi-generational living - is down the hall. A roomy laundry room and bathroom complete the basement space that truly has potential: add a kitchenette, create a designated hobby or craft space with custom shelving and counter tops, or gather books and comfy chairs for a casual library in the bonus space. So many options!
