Birders, bicyclists, runners and ruminators will love this home’s location — one block to a neighborhood park, two blocks to the W&OD Trail, close to the new Lubber Run Community Center, and bordering the extensive Lubber Run Park.

The house that comes with the location is a gem too. So many updates have transformed this 1940s timeless colonial into a home brimming with today’s amenities.  Two stylishly renovated bathrooms, a remodeled rec room with built-in bookcases, comfy carpeting, and recessed lighting; crisp white kitchen with lighted, glass-front cabinets, and new stainless appliances is open to the dining room.

A sunroom off the dining room extends the space for gatherings and daily living. Two bedrooms upstairs have desirable cross ventilation aided by ceiling fans, and the third bedroom is perfect for a nursery or office. Wood floors, double pane windows and fresh young decor complete the picture.

Outside, the brick has been painted in a warm hue, a new portico with metal railings and flagstone steps has been added along with a wide paver driveway. A new low maintenance vinyl fence encircles the large rear yard, and an industrial-style metal overhang shelters the kitchen door. The large paver patio is ideal for casual dining, relaxing, and snoozing on a summer’s day. Shady spots in the yard are perfect for play, sports and catching up on Vitamin D. Sunny areas abound for those with a newfound interest in gardening — or you can buy your crops at the Saturday Farmer’s Market at Lubber Run Community Center.

A wonderful home in pristine, move-in condition and an enviable location. And it is near the vibrant Ballston community.
