Life seems just a little sweeter when you're sitting on your own front porch. And if you don't have one, it's time to take a look at 102 Walnut Drive in Eighty Four. The large, beautiful covered front porch not only lends this colonial beauty its comfortable character; it also adds some usable and scenic outdoor space.
“People really notice the quaintness of the home and how it's situated on the lot with a really nice outdoor deck,” said Darla Jobkar, listing agent at Northwood Realty.
The outdoor space truly is scenic, thanks to the large, picturesque yard surrounding this Walnut Ridge home. From the curb you'll also notice a two-car side garage, plus a third detached garage.
“That's a real bonus,” said Jobkar. “The detached garage is great for boats, motorcycles and other toys, or as a workshop or shed.”
Once you step into the home, you'll find it's not all curb appeal either, where a large, vaulted entry, polished wood floors and beautiful staircase greet you. The house has a modern, relaxed feel thanks to the beautiful new Pottery Barn paint colors, neutral carpet and updated, contemporary light fixtures throughout.
“The home has been totally updated in décor,” said Jobkar. “It's super cozy and nice.”
With three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, this property is perfect for families of all shapes and sizes.
“It's perfect for first-time homebuyers, a young family or an executive couple,” said Jobkar.
The home also boasts a good-sized eat-in kitchen, as well as a formal dining room with beautiful updated lighting. Your whole family will want to gather in the living room, which opens to an oversized great room that looks out on the large backyard.
The large master bedroom is an ideal retreat for the heads of the household. Beautiful windows light the room, and an attached bathroom includes a dual sink. There's room for any clotheshorse in the master bedroom, where his-and-her closets have space for all your apparel and accessories.
Whether you're winding down after a long day or watching your children play, the large back deck is the perfect place to do either. The lush landscaping and perennial gardens on the property lend a scenic backdrop to your day. Strolling around the neighborhood isn't a bad idea, either.
“The home is in a super cute neighborhood which is really family-oriented,” Jobkar said. “It's a very established neighborhood in a nice cul-de-sac. There are kids of all ages, sidewalks and nicely located to many amenities throughout Peters Township, Eighty Four and South Park areas.”
Those amenities include easy access to local farms, including Trax and Simmons Farms. It's also close to Peters Township shopping and restaurants. Buyers with young children will be pleased to find the home is part of the Ringgold School District, which is experiencing a growth spurt, according to Jobkar.
“The elementary schools have high accolades, and there is a lot of community involvement overall, but especially in this particular neighborhood,” she said.
