Sometimes, you just want a great front porch! Stop in front of this home, walk up the long walkway through the impeccable, flowered, perfect front lawn, to this inviting front porch, and just stop there. Yes, it is THAT kind of front porch; you want to linger just a bit before heading inside. The living room is one of those “sit awhile; I’ll make coffee” kind of rooms. It leads into the kitchen which, though small, is perfectly designed with angular countertops, beautiful ceiling and flooring, appliances that remain, including the microwave and the microwave stand, and an island that also serves the bonus room which extends the length of the back of the home. Many uses come to mind for this extra room which could include an eating area, an office space, a hobby room – bring your own ideas and utilize the windows and natural light to augment whatever choice you make for this surprise space. The main floor has a full bathroom, remodeled in today’s most requested color scheme, with the large shower preferred by many mature buyers. Two bedrooms make up the second level of the home. The owners, who lived in this home for over 30 years, took excellent care of it, and that is evidenced by the condition of the mechanicals. The water heater was new in 2015, the GAF roof was installed in 2021, and the heating system was serviced in 2022, and the house has replacement windows! The basement, with an outside exit to a rear alley, has a washer and dryer, which remain, and an additional dryer which the Sellers are also leaving for the buyer’s convenience. There is a shed in the rear yard, with a lawn mower and garden tools inside for the new buyer . Parking is not a problem; there are two parking spaces at the rear of the home and plenty of parking on the street. Back outside, you are again taken by the size of the yard, the sprawling, magnificent tree, the flowers and the ideal location so close to schools, shopping, major roadways, all manner of service businesses, and within walking distances of most of the Gov Mifflin campus. But before you get back into the car, you turn and have one last look at that porch. Sometimes you just need a great front porch!
