An opportunity to become the new owner of a 3BR, 2.5 Bathroom Brick Split Level on a spacious and level .3 acre property with 1-car garage + carport awaits! Priced to build equity, this home has been loved by the long time owner for many years, and offers a modern, desirable layout with unique features, including a master bathroom, a kitchen with an abundance of cabinets and open concept with a large two-tiered breakfast bar, Andersen sliding doors to a covered patio and large backyard, mud room, and plentiful closet space. As you pull into the driveway, the curb appeal is evident with the manicured plantings along the walkway, and the charming, yet stately look of brick and shutters, coupled with a garage/carport combination for ample covered parking. When you enter the living room, you will notice the natural light by way of the bay window. This level has an open concept, and was completely updated and re-done in 1997 (see disclosure). The flooring needs replacement in the living and dining rooms, but this is also your opportunity to customize to your taste, whether that be luxury vinyl plank, hardwood, or carpet- the choice is yours! The kitchen was made into an open concept at this time, as well, offering an abundance of cabinets, including a pantry, plenty of counter space, and an informal dining area with a breakfast bar that offers seating on both sides. The window over the sink looks out to the open and level rear yard, so you can keep an eye on dogs, kids, or just the nature view that is all your own! Access to the rear covered patio and backyard where you can enjoy summer BBQ’s and gatherings, as well as plenty of yard space for any outdoor activities, animals….this is not your average sized Springfield yard! There are also 2 sheds at the rear of the property. The upper level boasts 3 BRs, all with ceiling fans and neutral wall colors. The interior doors have been upgraded to 6 panel doors with lever knobs. The main BR boasts a spacious closet and an en suite bath. The shower has a seat and shelves- bonus! The main bath offers a tiled floor & walls, shower with tub surround/shelving, and mirror medicine cabinet. There is access to the attic in the front BR, where you may also pull up the carpet in the corner by the attic access to take a peek at the HW underneath! Proceed to the lower level, just a few steps down off of the living room, and another level of living space awaits. Used as a gathering room, but this area could also serve as an office, home gym, or playroom. A nearby, freshly painted powder rm is quite a convenience! Also on this level- the informal access to the home via the garage or carport. Enter into the mud/laundry room with washer/dryer + laundry sink, cabinet storage, and a closet. This home meets many modern day needs when it comes to convenience- mud room access right off of the driveway, plenty of storage, and another bonus- the owner converted to gas heat in the late 1970’s! This home is for the buyer looking to build equity in a home with a modern/open layout, 2.5 bathrooms already in place, and priced to reflect the need for updating (carpet on main floor needs replacement, carpet on bedroom level has HW, ready to be exposed, underneath), central air condensing unit is in need of repair (possible replacement- window units can be left in the meantime), and updates throughout to light fixtures and fans. However, the kitchen is already opened up with a fantastic layout, there are hardwood floors ready to be exposed, updated 6 panel doors throughout with lever door knobs, neutral paint, double hung vinyl replacement windows, an Andersen sliding door, gas conversion completed in the 70’s, and an overall well cared for home. Make a smart investment, as split levels with this bed/bath ratio, square footage + garage spaces + spacious yard, are selling well into the 400k range when fully updated. All of this, with easy access to restaurants, shopping, major routes, and downtown Springfield!
