Plenty of tile countertops and storage in the kitchen(with an extra pantry) to make cooking easy and fun. The primary bedroom features an ensuite and a huge cedar-lined closet. Three additional bedrooms with built-in closets can be converted into a study, a craft room, or a workout room. The spacious front yard with partial shade from rustling trees is serene, perfect for a nap or sip a drink and enjoy. The exposed aggregate driveway is grand, with plenty of space for 5 cars. Easy access to Hwy 9 takes you to nearby downtown Ben Lomond for delicious cafes and restaurants, boutique shopping, and live entertainment.
