Description

PLEASE READ: THE OWNER IS NOT READY TO SELL. IT IS TEMPORARILY OFF THE MARKET. THE LISTING AGENT DOES NOT KNOW WHEN THE OWNER WILL BE READY TO SELL EITHER. Welcome home! This is a beautiful, Portgage Park home with nearly 1,900 SF of living space! Walk into a spacious LR/DR area featuring h/w flooring throughout, and that perfect lounge area at the front of the home! There are two (2) bedrooms on the first floor along with a full bathroom, which is also ideal for an in-law arrangement. The kitchen features contemporary honey maple cabinets, a movable island and a huge breakfast seating area over-looking the rear yard! Then head upstairs to three (3) additional bedrooms and a huge loft-like area, which would make for an awesome recreational area. The master bedroom is also large with its vaulted ceilings and ample windows for that natural, crisp sunlight. This one is a must see! Go 3.5% down using FHA financing at a 3.5% rate for a payment of about $2,075/month. Go 20% down using conventional financing at a 4% rate for a payment of about $1,775/month. It is cheaper than renting! Low taxes! Close to schools, shopping and transportation.
