Neighborhood: Lacey Forest
Thoughtfully expanded and updated 5 BD/3 BA Cape Cod, sited on a well-landscaped lot near Lacey Woods Park, the bike path, and the charms and attractions of Westover Village. The updated kitchen features crisp white cabinets, tile backsplash, granite tops, stainless appliances and a tile floor. It adjoins the expansive family room with skylights and French doors to a shady deck and level rear yard. The traditional living room has a wood-burning fireplace and flows into the dining room and then the family room — perfect for a return to gatherings of family and friends.
A rare feature of the home is a large primary bedroom on the main level. It offers space for a desk and seating area along with French doors to a deck. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and an updated bathroom. Another upstairs room has a spiral staircase to the deck and could be used as either a fourth bedroom or den. Gleaming wood floors, fresh paint and generous closet space enhance the appeal of all five bedrooms.
In the lower level, there is a rec room with built-ins — ideal for an office, playroom or gym — and a sleek, renovated bathroom. Also on this level is a fantastic laundry room with multiple cabinets, a folding counter and an industrial-looking ceiling. Tile floors brighten the area and make laundry a more appealing chore. The garage has been converted to space for bikes, sports, gardening and yard tools, and could be reclaimed as a one-car spot for a prized vehicle.
Bike to Westover Village for restaurants, shops, summertime ice cream, library, post office, services and Sunday farmers market. Lacey Woods Park has playing fields, basketball courts, a picnic pavilion and acres of wooded trails to enjoy nature. The home is within the walking zone for Cardinal Elementary School and Swanson Middle School. High schoolers attend Washington-Liberty with its IB program.
A bright open airy home in pristine move-in condition awaits the savvy buyer.
