Sitting on a corner lot in the epicenter of the Heights you’ll find this lovely three bedroom, two and a half bath, two story home.
Fully fenced front and side yards offer the perfect spot to play, relax and greet passersby.
The property is fully professionally landscaped and everything is just starting to come into bloom.
The generous front and side yards are just perfect for kids playing and pups running.
Sit and sip coffee or a cocktail and catch up with neighbors!
This play set on the Columbia side of the house will transfer with the sale.
In addition to excellent yard space this home offers a classic covered front porch with a swing and room for additional seating.
A wainscoted ceiling caps off the charm of this gracious entry to the home.
Inside the front door a foyer separates living space and one of the first floor bedrooms.  When these sellers purchased the home they worked with a designer to come up with many special touches, including the elegant wallpapered entry.
The living room overlooking the front and side yards absolutely exudes comfort and is so bright, with plenty of room for ample furniture pieces.
Custom cordless woven roman shades allow light, as well as privacy when closed.
The living and dining spaces flow right into the stunning kitchen (new in 2020).
Thoughtfully added by the sellers is a half bath off the living area.
Every design detail was attended to when making these rooms over a few years ago including new hardwood floors, lighting and soothing colors.
The dining area is spacious with various options for table and chair placement.
In addition to a formal dining table the kitchen includes a long breakfast bar.  Counter space to the right is ideal for a coffee and beverage station.
There is exceptional cabinet and counter space, as well as a single basin farm style sink with a window overlooking the side yard and play set.
This perspective affords a better look at the wine/beverage cooler.  As well you can see the door on the right leading to the combo pantry and laundry room, the stairs to the den and primary suite, and door to the left open to the second bedroom on the main level.
The stainless appliances, glass front cabinets and beautiful open shelving cap off a perfectly designed kitchen.
To the right via the entry foyer and overlooking the front porch is the first of two generously sized bedrooms on the main level.  In addition to a closet just outside the frame of this photo to the left are deep cubbies perfectly suited to extra storage for toys, clothes, etc.  The door to the left leads to the private shared bath.
This full bath with dual basins was another recent thoughtful update.  Outside the photo to the right are floor to ceiling storage cabinets just visible in the mirror's reflection.
The second bedroom on the main level is also spacious with its own sizeable closet.  The window overlooks the back area closest to a pergola covered patio.
Last but not least on the first floor accessed by the kitchen is a tiled walk-in pantry where you'll also find the full size washer and dryer.
At the top of the stairs is a little space perfect as a play area, though certainly could flex as a reading nook or office space.
Just outside the primary suite is this fabulous bright den with a built-in desk (possibly formerly a closet at one point).
Plantation shutters were added throughout this level giving the space a traditional and clean look.  The entire second floor is carpeted in a soothing, neutral pattern.
This room also has closet space to complement closets in the primary bedroom.
The primary suite is quite large and has multiple closets.  On the far wall are two clothes closets with a large walk-in storage area between them.
Another perspective of the primary suite looking toward the bath and entry from the den.  This room is serene and private.
The primary bath is thoughtfully outfitted with dual basins and a wide shower stall, all finished in crisp white detail.
Venture outside via the kitchen door and covered back porch and you'll find the patio with a pergola and ceiling fan, the perfect spot for breakfast, cocktails or an outdoor dinner.
The back area of this property is SO FLEXIBLE.  Work on your putting, play corn hole, let the kids play within an entirely fenced lot.
Enter the driveway from Columbia St. through the automatic privacy gate.
The full size two car garage currently serves as storage and a home office.  The double wide driveway with an automatic gate provides secure vehicle parking.
The garage has been fully finished out including epoxy flooring and an installed air conditioning unit, to be creatively used as additional home office and workout space.  The heavy curtain to the left hides space being used for storage.
Lastly the driveway entrance to the back area of the home's exterior, located on Columbia St.
