Description

Cute and adorable are the perfect words to describe this home!! It comes with lots of love and has been well cared for over the years by it's original owners! As you enter the home onto the front porch, at first glance you will notice the pristine cherry wood ceiling and slate flooring. The living room offers a fireplace which is for aesthetic purposes only. The kitchen is the HUB of the home and comes with the stove, range hood and refrigerator, and the washer & dryer are included as well. It features 2 large bedrooms on the first/main floor and 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. Also on the 2nd floor is Cedar closet that was hand built and is in excellent condition! There is an enormous addition off of the kitchen that could be used as a 2nd family room, which the current owners celebrated many holidays and family dinners together there. The home could use some updates such as the kitchen, bath and central HVAC, but it offers great bones. The roof was replaced about 10 years ago and some windows have been updated. It's clean and move in ready if you'd rather do the updates down the road and keep your money in your pocket for now. The backyard is 1 of the largest in the community and could accommodate a pool very easily and still have room in the backyard to run. It also offers a double car detached garage with an attached screened-in porch, which would be perfect for these Summer days or nights on the porch with the family eating crabs!! At this price it gets you into a popular community in the Red Clay School District where homes in this neighborhood sell for the low to mid $200's!! It's priced accordingly and is being sold "As Is." Home inspections are for informational purposes only. Be sure to put this home on your tour TODAY! At this price, it won't last long!
