Welcome to 13 Elm Ridge
Looking for a beautiful property backing onto a ravine? With a well-loved home on a quiet cul-de-sac with no thru traffic? Look no further!
This 1958 built side-split is a truly unique find. The serene property, at just under 1/2 acre in size, offers a park-like backyard that you're going to love spending time in. You can enjoy your morning coffee surrounded by nature, where you might see a deer wander by.
An interlock brick driveway leads up to the home which is a 4 level sidesplit. The property grading actually slopes down the left side of the home which allows for a door 'at grade' off of the recroom. Inside the front door and you'll find a few twists on the traditional side split layout. The first thing you'll notice though is the views through the triple glass door set across the back of the home. You'll feel like you're walking out into your own parkland!
Back inside, the living room, at nearly 23' long, features a fireplace at one end and the views outside at the other. Note, there is plenty of space to have 2 separate seating areas, making this great for entertaining. The formal dining room, with bay window looking out front, is directly off of the kitchen. It also features an extra wall area separating it from the front entrance hall which is complete with additional cabinet and storage space.
The kitchen has been updated with clean, white cabinetry, solid surface counters, views out front and a door giving quick access out to the carport area at the side of the home.
Note: there is hardwood flooring under the carpeting in the majority of the 'above grade' space of the home.
Steps lead up to the bedroom level where you'll find a nice sized landing area and 3 bedrooms, again, all with hardwood or carpet under the hardwood. Check out the views from the primary & 3rd bedroom, which both look out to the beautiful yard in the back.
Again, thanks to the slope of the property, the recroom level feels like it is another main floor area thanks to the full-sized windows. Running the depth of the house, the recroom is nearly 24' deep and has plenty of space for a full furniture set-up. Need more space or a larger bathroom on this level? You can always absorb the front area of the rec room if so desired.
A home office is on this level as well and similar to the recroom, it has full sized windows looking out into the yard as well. What a spot to work in! Need another bedroom? That would be possible in this space as well.
The basement level is unfinished but includes a few things. You'll find a cedar closet immediatly on your left and a cold cellar area on your right. The laundry area is down here as well as ample space for storage.
A few noteworthy items:
- the HVAC is hot water boiler heating (approx 2007)
- air conditioning is via a split duct system with a supply in the living room and bedroom level, keeping everything cool and comfortable in the summer
- 100 amp electrical service with a breaker panel
- vinyl windows
- roof shingles age are not known but they've been updated
