SOUTHINGTON — It's human nature. We always want a lot of something without having to spend much of anything. In real estate that can be tricky, but long time realtor Shelly Meister recently listed a home for sale that is worth checking out.
On the western side of Southington you'll find homes in the Hitchcock Road area that are quiet, peaceful, inviting. The home at 369 Hitchcock Road is located on a triple cul-de-sac and is a much sought after corner parcel. The raised ranch, built in 1969, has three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and around 1,800 square feet on a couple of levels.
The front-to-back living room gives you seamless access to your upper level deck, your own personal oasis for relaxing in the backyard, entertaining, or cooking out. Keep all your equipment in the free-standing shed located just feet away.
For those times when you're cooking inside, you're going to love the kitchen. It's got beautiful beadboard giving the walls a fresh wainscoting appearance with the seamless look of wood paneling with vertical grooves. There's a gas range, a tile backsplash, stainless steel refrigerator, and granite countertops.
There are three bedrooms on the upper level, but the beauty of a raised ranch is a whole other level. The completely finished lower level has a rec room that could also serve as your family room, media room, or whatever's in your imagination. This level also has a laundry room with folding counter providing convenience every time you wash.
More pluses include a two car attached garage, hardwood floors throughout the first floor, a half-bath in the master bedroom and a central air system installed only a few years ago.
The lot is just a little under half an acre. Heating is provided by forced air, natural gas. The home is connected to public water and sewer service.
The list price for this home is $299,900. The most recent annual property taxes are $422 per month. Call Meister today for your own personal tour. Her direct line is 860-655-3711.
