Tucked at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this two level Colonial offers a classic floorplan with many updates — recent HVAC, renovated kitchen and powder room, replacement windows, gas fireplace, updated bathrooms and fresh paint throughout.

Enter from the covered portico into a generous foyer with coat closet and spots for shoe storage. The foyer flows into the living room with fireplace and windows on three sides and then to the kitchen. Light wood cabinets, warm granite countertops and stainless appliances are grouped around a center island with additional storage. A powder room and coat closet are also on this level. Just off the kitchen is the laundry and mudroom with entry to the deck and the large level lot. A big garden shed provides storage for garden, camping, and sports equipment, and the yard offers potential for expanding the home.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom has double closets and an updated bathroom while the second and third bedrooms are served by the updated hall bathroom. Pull down stairs lead to a large attic for storage, and there is additional storage under the main level stairs.

Conveniently located between the Lee-Harrison Center and Westover Village, the home is also near Parkhurst Park, the W&OD bike trail, many shops, restaurants and services along with the Westover Library and Sunday Farmer’s market.

Nottingham Elementary School, Swanson Middle School and Yorktown High School.
