This lovely home is on a corner lot in an ideal location, walking distance from Herington Hospital and Medical Clinic, Herington Schools and the Municipal Swimming Pool and park. Built in 1951, this ranch-style home has 2044 square feet of living space, including a finished basement that is like a studio apartment; plus garage, carport, fenced back yard, covered patio, 10' X 13' utility shed with lights and outlets, 15' X 17' garden area and numerous flower beds. The house is on city water, but there is also a well in back that we use to water the garden and flowers. There are ceiling fans throughout the house and central heat and air. There is also a wall unit A/C and a gas fireplace to supplement the enlarged family room.
Many additions and improvements have been recently added, so some of the internet information about this property may not be correct. Master bedroom, family room and garage have all been enlarged and remodeled, and the roof was replaced in 2014.
The master bedroom is huge and includes four closets, lots of windows and natural light, built-in "knick knack" shelves and a jetted tub large enough for two cozy adults. The floor is carpeted, with ceramic tile around the tub area. The second bedroom is much smaller but would be an ideal kid's room, guest room or office, also carpeted floor. The third bedroom is in the finished basement, linoleum floor. The main bathroom and the basement bathroom both have walk-in showers.
If you happen to work night shift as I did much of my life, or if you fear tornadoes.... you are going to LOVE the basement! It's warm in winter, cool in summer and dark when you need to sleep! The basement includes a main room 15 X 20 feet with storage cabinets and closet; laundry room with cabinets, double sink and closet (washer, dryer, dehumidifier and 8 cubic foot chest freezer included); bathroom with 4' X 4' walk-in shower; and two storage rooms.
The kitchen has beautiful wood cabinets and comes equipped with stove, microwave with vent, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, and a garbage disposal. The kitchen is large enough to dine in, but there is also a dining area adjacent to the kitchen which could be used for office space or play area if you wish.
This home has a living room with a large picture window and main entrance in the front of the house and a large family room with separate entrance and lots of windows in the back. The concrete patio area in the back yard is covered by a metal awning and includes an entrance to the kitchen.
The attached, one-car garage has an electric door opener, a workbench, ample room for shelves and storage, plenty of electrical outlets, entry into the kitchen and a drop-down ladder for access to the overhead attic storage. No crawling with boards across the rafters.....this storage area has a floor already.
This is truly a "must see to appreciate" place. Please feel free to call for more information or to schedule a showing.
