This is a a classic bi-level home with wonderful entertaining possibilities.  It’s a comfortable home that lends itself well to quiet family moments too.  While it has very good space, it’s not overwhelming which gives it a certain charm.  Big enough for large parties but not so big that it’s cold.

The main level has an expansive living room and full sized dining room for great indoor parties.  Guests can move out on the deck for even more gathering space.  Downstairs is the large rec room that also goes out to the yard through very pretty double glass doors.  You will love the yard.  This home is in what is known as the South Cliffs.  The South Cliffs is infamous for tiny yards.  That’s not the case here.  It’s a very nice yard that’s quite private and has good space.

The Primary Bedroom is good sized too with it’s own bath and the main bath has a wall of closets.  This area is separated from the shower and tub as the main bath is 2 adjoining spaces.  The updated kitchen has beautiful granite and a built in breakfast table.  It’s custom design works well for both the chef and casual dining.

By the way, there’s an extra room and full bath in the basement too.  They’ve used the room the sleep overnight guests in the past.  It would make a fabulous home office space.
