Welcome back to Home of the Week! You would never guess this beautiful home was built in 1949, the updates and renovations found throughout make it feel like it's new construction with tons of character! Take note that there are two porches, custom cabinetry, new appliances in the completely remodeled kitchen and fresh flooring throughout. Along with the visible, additional RetroFoam insulation was added for increased energy efficiency.

 The exterior boasts a charming front porch, exquisite attention to detail and a sprawling manicured lawn all wrapped up with a modern flair. Let's take a tour!

A porch this grand will instantly transport you to the old south! I love the cozy chairs and added detail of plants. Would you mimic this look or nudge it further by adding a large outdoor rug and additional furniture? You can't go wrong with this space!

French doors complete this dreamy look! (Note: in the first picture there is a front door for a formal entrance along with the French doors shown above).

The bright and cozy living room is accented by a marbled tile fireplace. I love the spark of personality the dapper cows gives to this space. 

The kitchen has vast cabinet space- even subtly wrapping around the corner. I like the informal breakfast bar that's tucked at the edge of the kitchen. 

Quick peek at the sink which overlooks the backyard and second, enclosed porch.

This space is just delightful! I would add a few plants that could be enjoyed throughout the colder seasons. You can see how spacious this room is by all the seating that is laid out while not overwhelming the area. 

Back inside, you'll find the formal dining room, which lies between the entryway/living room and the kitchen. Just off the formal dining room you see an additional large room.

I love the grand entry into this room. This is the perfect space for "vegging out" with a sectional, a pair of cozy chairs, plenty of blankets and a tv. Or maybe you would replace the tv and make this a family room with a game or craft table. 

The master bedroom is so large, even the accent chair looks small! Right off the master is an attached bathroom.

Another gorgeous renovation!

Mature trees and a fenced in yard are just the tip of the highlights in this area. Landscaping and rock were added along with a patio to make this another favorite spot around the house. 

Yet another home I'm confident won't be on the market for long. Contact Team Raeside to plan your showing today!
