Gracious Home With Expansive, Backyard Retreat In The Willows

Teeming with charm and style, this thoughtfully updated home in The Willows offers timeless character mingled with modern convenience. A spacious front lawn hedged for privacy accentuates the home’s picturesque curb appeal, and the delightful entry porch gives way to interiors trimmed with classic details like original hardwood floors and extensive crown molding. An array of fresh upgrades includes interior and exterior colors, fashionable lighting fixtures, interior doors, and tasteful landscaping.

Bright, open living and dining areas allow day-to-day flexibility and share a stately fireplace with brick surround. Granite countertops and refinished cabinetry surround the central kitchen, which includes a garden window, undermount sink, a breakfast bar with seating, and stainless appliances, including a gas oven range.

Natural stone finishes lend elegance to the full bath, which presents a jetted soaking tub with shower and seat, granite surround, and upgrades that include a high-efficiency toilet and stylish new vanity.

Outdoors, the raised deck is perfectly sized for leisure or alfresco entertaining, overlooking a private backyard oasis with immense lawn, winding gravel footpath, paver walkways, and lush, diverse greenery—including ferns, Japanese maples, and mature fruit varieties. The home’s attached garage conceals a laundry area with front-loading appliances, plenty of shelving and upper storage, and space for a workbench. The property also includes a garden shed and exterior lockers for additional storage.
