Property Description

Rare Birdland Cape on Premium Lot Boasting the unbeatable setting of a sprawling, premium lot on a tree-lined Birdland street is a gorgeous Ward Hayes-built home with the curb appeal of a beautiful brick facade with two covered front entries, two-car garage with wide driveway, and large front yard. Up the front walkway to the main entry, youre greeted by a lovely foyer with slate flooring. To your right, the spacious living room is brightened by a large bay window and warm carpeting that flows to the elegant dining room with a double front window and chair rail molding. Through decorative double doors, youll find the fantastic kitchen and breakfast room, illuminated by multiple windows revealing views of the scenic backyard and direct access outside. The family chef has everything they need from a built-in dishwasher, microwave, and desk to stainless steel appliances and double sink with a disposal, while enjoying solid surface Corian countertops, cherry cabinetry, tile backsplash and flooring, and crown molding. The expansive family room is deservingly the main hub of the home, highlighted by a wood-burning, brick fireplace with decorative wood mantle and surrounding built-ins, and elevated by random-width pegged oak flooring and large glass door access to the back patio. The awesome sunroom provides a multi-seasonal escape thanks to a vaulted cathedral, cedar ceiling with matching walls, multiple tall windows revealing the beautiful yard, eyeball lighting, and a ceiling fan. The main level features two primary bedrooms with carpeting and two closets. The first has an ensuite bathroom with tile floors, oversized vanity, and stall shower, plus access to the sunroom, while the second also has an ensuite bathroom with tile flooring, Whirlpool tub and shower, oversized vanity, and crown molding. Upstairs, there is a third bedroom enjoying carpeting and two closets, a full bathroom with tile flooring, oversized vanity, and tile tub/shower, and an unfinished bonus room or potential 4th bedroom with vaulted cathedral ceiling, as well as huge unfinished attic storage that can easily become additional living area. The peaceful backyard may be your favorite place to relax, from the great brick patio with surrounding stone walls and a large, flat backyard elevated by beautiful landscaping and a beautiful gazebo.
