First time on the market in 26 years! Meticulously maintained 4 bedroom home on a quiet cul de sac near Wakonda Country Club. Not your typical split foyer layout, this home is all about space! Beautifully landscaped quarter plus acre lot with a fenced back yard. 180 square foot 3 season cedar porch with adjustable windows. This home features 3 beds on the main level and 1 bedroom in the basement. 2 large living areas on the main as well as an additional living room downstairs. 2 fireplaces. Wonderful addition off the back with a vaulted ceiling opens from the kitchen and formal dining area. The high windows allow in lots of natural light. An additional deck off the 3 season porch gives beautiful views of the landscaped yard and easy access to the included Hot Tub. NEW Roof last month, NEW hard flooring, fresh paint throughout, and modern white trim. Off the garage is a mudroom/coat area as well as a huge storage room with built-in shelving.
