This little gem ranch with a big heart is tucked into an oversized lot in South Tabor overflowing with impeccable landscaping love. The secluded and peaceful yard has been fully naturescaped with dozens of mature native plants & trees. There is a covered deck with direct access from the kitchen, as well as a generous carport patio, that are perfect for backyard hangs. 

The home was built in 1950 and has had recent key updates, including a new roof in 2016, double-paned windows, and a new whole-home heat pump in 2019, as well as additional insulation and custom window inserts. The Home Energy Score is a perfect 10! There’s also been some fresh interior paint recently completed.

There are sweet custom built-in benches in the living room that maximize seating and storage options. Both bedrooms boast generous closet space. This home is located on a quiet street with easy access anywhere, and it’s just about 1 mile to Mt. Tabor. 

This is a prime opportunity to make those first-home dreams come true!

OPEN HOUSE: Saturday, May 7th from 11a-1p

Now, some landscaping notes from the sellers:

This humble piece of land has been thoughtfully planted with dozens and dozens native plant and tree species in order to give back to the many birds, butterflies, and bees that have brought joy to us over the past 12+ years. Native plants provide the food and shelter that wildlife need in order to survive. Some hummingbirds, wrens, robins, chickadees and nuthatches even hung around long enough to nest.

No pesticides or herbicides have been used since at least 2010.

To conserve water, there’s one disconnected downspout that utilizes an underground French drain to move water into a raingarden.

The trees absorb rainwater and help to keep the yard from getting muddy. They’ve been well cared for by a professional wildlife arborist.
