This darling 4 bedroom, 1.5 bath, single level ranch home (on a crawlspace) sits on a fenced corner lot in a quaint neighborhood of tree-lined streets. Move-in ready, it's been well maintained by its owners, past & present (the sellers have been here 18 years and have done so much in that time - inquire about the complete list).
