Situated on a wonderful tree lined street in Bella Vista, the immediate surroundings of this home are things of pure joy. Orange and yellow leaves flood the street in the autumn. On winter evenings, snowcapped trees and glowing exterior lights lead you home. Just inside, a wonderfully warm living room with oak hardwood flooring greets upon arrival and boasts a wood burning fireplace and oversized Pella sliding doors. The entertainer of the home will delight in hosting guests in this space during... cooler seasons. In warmer months, the rear patio situated just beyond the living room steals the spotlight. The chef of the home can see their way down one floor. The kitchen and dining level provides ample space for a dream kitchen installation. Light from the living area above enhances the feel of this space. A half bathroom and separate laundry closet completes this level. Find your way back to the staircase and head to the second floor. You will immediately be struck by the copious sunlight that streams into the king sized room from the oversized sliding doors. This bedroom features a walk out balcony as well as an ensuite bathroom. Enjoy this suite as your Master Bedroom, or head up another level to the homes top floor. There, you will enjoy yet another large bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, vaulted ceilings and ample closet space outfitted with custom shelving and storage. The prime location of this property is one of its best features. Kick your mornings off at nearby Chapterhouse Cafe, meet friends for a noteworthy lunch at CHeU Noodle Bar, and make a quick evening run to neighboring Whole Foods when the workday is out.
