Looking for somewhere quiet to sink down your roots, but still have quick, easy access to anything you can think of?! Then here it is!! Situated on 1.15 acres, this spacious, beautifully renovated, ranch-style home just outside the city limits allows for the best of both worlds … truly the perfect blend of “charm” and “modern.” Enjoy quiet, country-style living, while still being just minutes from the Coast Guard Base, downtown EC and Hwy 17. And only an hour from Norfolk, VA, and the pristine beaches of North Carolina’s famed Outer Banks! From the moment you pull into the big, circle-driveway, it’s obvious that this home has been well-loved, with its huge front and side-yards -- large, open spaces with beautiful, mature trees and a neatly manicured lawn -- and a cute, covered front porch … perfect for enjoying warm, spring evenings. Curb appeal for days! Head inside and prepare to be wowed! There are literally so many features, it’s hard to list them all! Sun-lovers will soak up all the warm, natural light that can be seen and felt filtering throughout the entire house. So many windows! And large, French-doors leading from room-to-room make the open floor-plan feel even more open and airy. Featuring 3 bedrooms with an office that could be a 4th, 4 full baths and 1 half-bath, no expense has been spared in modernizing this beautiful home, and it shows! Living room featuring custom cabinetry, gorgeous woodwork, and vaulted ceilings … completely updated kitchen with wood floors, custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances -- a perfect gathering spot for family and friends! Formal dining room just off the kitchen with double French-door entry to the living room. Need a quick toddy before dinner?! Then cruise through the living room over to the wet-bar room with custom cabinetry and built-in wine rack! The large master suite features a huge bay window (more natural light!), with TWO spacious, walk-in closets (also with custom cabinetry). The completely updated master bath features two vanities, custom cabinetry, tons of closet space, and is highlighted by a truly amazing 2-person, hand-crafted, tile shower with glass-block windows – can you say “Ahhhh?!” The large 2nd and 3rd bedrooms also feature completely upgraded, full bathrooms. Need to unwind after a long day?! Then head out back and cool off in the large, in-ground, heated saltwater swimming pool! After your dip, relax on the huge deck under the remote-controlled, retractable awnings … the perfect set-up for lounging in privacy during the dog days of summer, or for hosting a crowd for Carolina-style barbeques! What else?! How about a huge entertainment/game room, a bright, comfy office with custom cabinetry, a large utility room/pantry, a spacious in-law suite over the garage with full bath, and a 4-car garage with workshop, and 2 outdoor sheds (both with power!).
