Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Our family is currently living in Pennsylvania, this is our home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Omaha: This home is our forever home, we purchased this home because of the charming neighborhood. Walking distance to parks and located in quiet well established neighborhood. We have the best of both worlds, lots of wildlife, yet still in the city but on a quiet street close to the interstate, shopping and everything in between.
The Unique Benefits at this House: I fell in love with our home the moment I stepped foot in the living room. The main floor features an open concept with access to almost anywhere in the house. The enclosed front porch is a nice feature (weather permitting) you will find french doors that open from the porch to the living room. If you enjoy the outdoors and the smell of fresh air you will enjoy that on a nice spring/fall day. We have brand new custom kitchen off the dinning room that's fully stocked with everything you will need to cook/grill or even entertain for guests. All brand new top of the line appliances along with one of my favorite things is the farmhouse sink! The backyard is a private fenced backyard with a large deck furnished with a patio set, charcoal grill and a fire pit. While sitting on the patio you might hear or see some deer and other small wildlife. The basement is strictly used for laundry only, it's just a normal unfinished basement with a washer/dryer. The home does have a brand new furnace and A/C unit so no worries when it comes to being comfortable.
