SOLD $1,500,00 (Listed at $1,295,000)

This re-imagined and re-designed Upper Rockridge three bedroom/two bath contemporary is a show-stopper. With an open floor plan and vaulted beam ceiling in the living/dining area, the eat-in kitchen is now the focal point for entertaining friends and family. French doors open from the dining area to a sunny spacious rear deck with hill views for indoor/outdoor entertaining.

The living room has been updated with a beautiful wall cabinet and gas fireplace as a new focal point for this room. The main floor also has two bedrooms and two updated bathrooms. One of these bedrooms is the master bedroom suite that has been freshly painted and now features closet barn doors.

A stairway leads down to the third bedroom/family room with a half-bath and French doors to the rear patio and yard. This room features a built-in wine refrigerator and cabinet system. To avoid the temptation of imbibing too early in the day, there is a sliding barn door to hide the refrigerator and wine glasses.

Across the hall from the third bedroom/family room is the laundry area and a home office. At the end of this hallway is the interior access to a two-car garage with a built-in workshop, tankless hot water heater and a Tesla car charger.

The kitchen and both upstairs bathrooms have been newly updated and reflect the minimalistic character of the home. The new kitchen and bathroom skylights help provide additional light to these areas. Cosmetic improvements include refinished hardwood floors, new downstairs carpeting and new paint inside and out. Welcome to the antidote to city life.
