This mid century modern ranch offers tons of functional living space & natural light on the main level. The main floor features 3 large bedrooms, 2 Full baths and a powder room off of the foyer for guests. Many original items have been kept in place from the original front door, flagstone foyer with period mirrored glass and large coat closets. Midcentury modern lovers will adore the vintage den which received new oak wood floors to tie into the rest of the home. The classic den retains its wood burning fireplace and original stone hearth with built-in cabinets & secretary for all of your albums, books, work and tech needs from Hi-Fi to Wi Fi. A completely new custom kitchen has been completed and includes a walk-in pantry, laundry room/mud room with lockers and are conveniently located off the attached large 2 car garage. New kitchen picture window, new custom CountrysideCabinets Kitchen cabinets feature soft closing cabinets and dovetailed drawers with matte gold handles/pulls & faucets to accentuate the white Quartz countertops and marble lit bascksplashs.

The popcorn ceilings have been removed throughout the residence while keeping the original recessed light fixtures in place and adding additional recessed lighting over the formal dining area. The completely refinished basement boasts all new windows, solid doors, new recessed lighting on dimmer switches throughout. The floors were redone using a luxury vinyl tile, that is cork backed and mold resistant. The additional framed-out basement bonus room with closet would make for a fantastic office, gym, home theater or 4th bedroom.
