Tucked away on a quiet, dead-end street, this quintessential cottage is a delight to arrive home to. Neat landscaping and the charming, classic exterior are framed by tall emerald trees that tower in the background, making for a storybook scene that’s sure to inspire pride in ownership!

Imagine decking out this space for the holidays, or hosting friends for laidback get-togethers!

The layout flows right into the dining room, and here you’ll find vinyl flooring, a skylight that brightens up mealtime, and the other side of the double-sided fireplace, which happens to be a wood-burning fireplace. A generous layout ensures you have room to host a crowd, and even more seating can be found at the bar-style counter that looks into the kitchen. Newer appliances, freshly painted white cabinets with updated hardware, and closet pantry space promise ease and efficiency wrapped up into one smart package!

Find versatility with this home’s 3 bedrooms that each offer loved ones privacy, large windows, and good-sized closets. Tasteful color palettes await in each comfortable haven, and the same is true of this home’s full bath. Retro tile and vinyl add a splash of vintage flair, but homeowners can rest assured that amenities are suited to modern needs! You’ll also find a powder room and a nearby utility room where the washer and dryer are located.

The oversized garage provides more storage, parking, and even room for a workbench, and you’ll also find attic storage, a huge shed, and RV parking available as well. And when the weather warms up a bit… this home’s outdoor amenities are a dream come true! The lush 0.26 acres are ready for play, relaxation, and entertaining, whether you’re hosting barbecues out on the covered patio, playing lawn games or tossing around a football, or putting your green thumb to work. Let pets roam free in the fully fenced yard, add in a play toy for little ones, get creative with the landscaping—it’s all waiting in Lakewood!
