Located on a private drive, quiet and safe for kids, this is a great location within the community. Featuring three generous bedrooms (one on the lower level with full bathroom for guests as well and two upstairs that share a Jack & Jill bathroom) this floor plan offers versatility. Updates including newer vinyl windows, recessed lighting, light & bright walls with high ceilings and wood-textured laminate flooring create an inviting space. A very clean and upgraded kitchen features all-white appliances, cabinetry, and subway tile, contrasted by rich granite counter tops. Room for a breakfast nook and pantry are just off the formal dining space. In the main living room, two-story ceilings and large picture windows create a great area to relax. Off the living room, slider doors access the back patio with large concrete pavers framed by river rock and wood decking. A peek ocean view to the southwest can be seen down the greenbelt. A two-car garage with direct access offers laundry hook ups and ample space for surfboards, e-bikes, and parking.
