Nearby several lakes with public boat ramps that are connected by a series of canals and included in the gorgeous Chain of Lakes. Step onto the spacious front porch and imagine gathering around the gas firepit with loved ones under the starlit sky. This charming abode was in process of undergoing upgrades, promising a fresh and modernized living experience with no carpet! The workshop could be a potential detached in-law suite with existing HVAC. Your sanctuary awaits in the primary bedroom, boasting a generous walk-in closet with a barn-style door. Pamper yourself in the ensuite bathroom, featuring a luxurious walk-in shower, jetted tub, and the added comfort of a bidet. Bedrooms 2 and 3 offer blank canvases for your design dreams, eagerly awaiting the touch of a new owner's style. While the guest bathroom with bidet has received some modern touches from the vanity to the large walk-in shower, there's still room for your personal flair. Entertain effortlessly in the spacious living room, recently undergoing updating to create an inviting atmosphere for hosting guests. The kitchen shines with newer stainless-steel appliances, including the refrigerator, range, and microwave. Admire the tile countertops and backsplash as you gaze out the window onto the backyard and large workshop. Discover convenience with a barn-style door leading to the partially converted garage currently a workshop but ready to be a project room or office space. Off to the back sits the laundry room, complete with shelving, washer, dryer and an ice maker. Outside, a sturdy architect shingle roof, complemented by gutters, protects the home's foundation from the elements. A spacious backyard hosts a large workshop with its own HVAC unit and a tall carport perfect for storing your RV or boat. Formerly a mechanics garage with full power, insulation and under air, this building is ready to continue providing a workspace for a hobbyist or potentially a blank slate for designing an apartment. Relish the tranquility of your private backyard, overlooking a vacant lot that ensures your peaceful retreat remains undisturbed. Don't miss this opportunity to make this your own slice of paradise! Seller motivated.
