Impressions start with the living room fireplace and lovely mantle, wainscoting, ceiling fan, built-ins, and newer wood-like flooring. The formal dining room boasts a built-in hutch and is large enough to accommodate large family gatherings. The eat-in country kitchen is so spacious and bright, that you’ll want to prepare food throughout the day, especially with a dishwasher, tiled counter tops, garden window, lots of cabinetry, a working antique stove, and room for a preparation island. Refrigerator stays too.

In addition, there is a covered patio, fruit trees, above-ground spa, auto irrigation, and a shed behind the detached garage. You’ll never want to leave this serene space, for it is surrounded by lush landscaping and a soon-to-bloom plumeria tree and a lemon tree with lemons as large as grapefruits!

The house roof is about 3 years old and the lot size is 7,841 sq ft with a long driveway for RV parking, and the fence around the front yard is covered with climbing roses which should be blooming soon!

Terrific neighbors and walking distance to the Riverside Plaza, Urgent Care, Dairy Queen, and a veterinarian office, among many other local businesses. Commuter friendly too. This dream home can be yours…don’t hesitate!
