Description

Lots of space, lovely 1/2-acre lot and lower level bonus rooms on Longwood Dr.! Mature trees line streets and sidewalks wind past well-built homes and well-maintained lawns in this well-loved community of Foulk Woods. Gently sloping front lawn dotted with trees fronts this 4 BRs/2 full baths/2 PR red brick/gray shutters 2-story home where newly mulched beds present golden yellow mums and thriving shrubs. Long driveway leads back to turned 2-car garage, while curved black wrought iron railings flank bumped-in, elevated front entry. Home’s updates include new DW/paint (2020) new hot water heater (2014), new HVAC (2011), new roof (2005) and transferrable P.J. Fitzpatrick’s lifetime warranty for siding/windows/roof. Square glass inset front door opens to wide foyer, made lighter thanks to linen color ceramic tile floor accented with dark grout. Hardwood staircase is flushed against wall and toasted almond color paint is throughout. French doors grace entrance to LR, where 2 windows on front wall and 2 windows on side wall highlight beautiful original hardwood floors. Red-brick trimmed, wood-burning FP with white-wood mantle creates warm and welcoming room and is aptly positioned on far wall so one can appreciate it from foyer as well. Opposite LR through oversized entrance is DR where both neutral paint and hardwoods are repeated, with addition of elegant white chair rail and pewter chandelier. In DR there are 3 windows, all with blinds, echoed from LR. Kitchen is beyond DR where light wood cabinets are blended with SS GE double oven and range, and new SS Profile DW.

Bump-out sizable breakfast room adds extra space and allows one to dine with dual window offering ample sunlight and clear views to backyard. Adjacent is open pass-through to FR beyond. Ceramic tile hall leads from foyer straight back to another set of French doors that grant access to FR. Large picture window along with glass-inset back door keeps room light, yet its plush, neutral-color carpeting immediately grounds it as cozy space. Small hall off FR leads past dual-door closet, access to 2-car garage with shelving and extra footage for refrigerator, bikes, etc. and sage-green painted, tile-floor PR with oak vanity and black countertop.
