Take a moment to explore this Parkland area rambler’s top 5 highlights: 

1. This thoughtfully maintained home features tons of smart upgrades. 

As soon as you step inside this home-sweet-home, the carefully maintained living areas make it immediately apparent that this home has been well-cared-for. In 2007, the sellers installed a new heat pump; in 2011, new kitchen cabinets and flooring were installed; and in 2014, a new fence was installed and shelving was built in the garage. 

In 2016, this home had a new 30-year roof installed, shower doors were replaced, and the flooring in the bathroom and laundry were all replaced. 2017 brought a new water heater and new furnace, the latter of which has maintenance done twice a year while the furnace filters are cleaned every 3 months. In 2018, a side fence was installed, new gutters were installed, the sellers had duct cleaning done, and they also built the shed/workout room. In 2019 the back deck was painted and the front porch was stained, and in 2020 the fences were all restained, the smoke detectors were replaced, and the blinds were replaced. 

2. Light-filled living spaces are a delight to spend time in. 

Abundant natural light, a warm color palette, and an open-concept layout all contribute to this home’s thoroughly welcoming atmosphere. The comfortable living room flows right into the charming dining area and adjacent kitchen, and bar-style counter seating offers even more room for gathering with loved ones. Whether you’re cooking up a homemade dinner in the kitchen or just relaxing in the living area catching up on your favorite TV shows, this “house” truly feels like a “home”! Plus, a heat pump and A/C keep things comfy no matter the time of year. 

3. Well-designed layout includes 3 versatile bedrooms. 

A master suite with an ensuite bath and walk-in closet is included in this home’s 3 bedroom count, and if you have an extra room or even 2, the sky’s the limit! You can finally create that home gym, office, or hobby room that you’ve been dreaming about. 

4. Backyard retreat is brimming with opportunity. 

In the picturesque backyard, you’ll find a sunny deck for entertaining, plenty of room to play, and thankfully it’s fully fenced so you can have peace of mind when you let pets out to explore. An outbuilding offers unique potential—you can use this getaway for a home gym, for storage, or finish it to create an office, a music studio, or an art studio!

5. Excellent Parkland area location surrounded by city amenities.
