Close by Muddy Branch State Park with more than 876 acres in nature is this 1973 Raised Rambler with superb flow for easy living that we need today. The park has miles of walking/cycling trails and a nearby fishing pond that keeps you as fit as you want to be. Situated between two low traffic cul-de...-sacs on a 1/4 acre lot, you immediately notice how quiet it is except for a few birds chirping. Yet you are a 5-minute drive from all types of retail restaurants, grocery, and services at the Rio, Crown, and the Kentlands. The upper level is the main living area and is light-filled even on gloomy days thanks to skylights in both the living and dining rooms and sliding doors in the dining room, kitchen, and owner's suite that all lead to rear porches/decks. Bright and high cathedral ceilings dominate the living area here. Plenty of room for big holiday gatherings and there's a cozy electric fireplace with mantel in the living room. The kitchen is open and modern with stainless appliances and Butcher Block countertops. There's room for a kitchen table here and plenty of counter space for some serious cooking + super storage in the many cabinets. The sliding doors in the kitchen and dining room flood you with light from the south facing rear garden and winter afternoons cease being a gloomy affair - it's a Happy House! The large windows, typical of this period home, are double pane and so more energy efficient. There are 3 bedrooms on this level and 2 bathrooms including a good-sized owner suite with own bathroom and its own sliding door to the deck for a step outside for meditation without waking others. The bathrooms have been updated. On the lower level, there's a large entrance foyer with a Recreation Room on the right with an original wood-burning fireplace and deep above grade windows with views to mature landscaping. There is a large bedroom and bathroom here also that makes a great place for an elderly relative to visit (no steps coming in from outside). There's a large laundry/utility room with a full-sized washer and dryer. The one-car garage is built into the house and you can drive right in and enter from inside. It has an automatic garage door opener for cold night homecomings. Front and rear yards are full of mature dogwoods, crape myrtles azaleas, and evergreen shrubs. The rear yard is raised high above street level and unusually private for a corner lot. Each spring the back porch is showered with Wisteria flowers from the vine above it. You can entertain outdoors for 3 seasons here and the sliding glass door access from the kitchen allows you to cook outside for any winter holiday too. For those with small children, Dufief Elementary is a short stroll away and you are located in the nationally top-ranked Wootton High School Cluster! By the elementary schools are soccer fields and a walking track. From this quiet setting, it's a short drive to I-270 and I-200 meaning you have not given the City life up, but once you get here you may not want to leave too often! The sellers call it the Happy House - Hurry over to this natural beauty before it's gone! Continue reading
