Living Space: Inside the front door you’ll appreciate the charming vestibule with coat closet that separates it from the spacious living room with multi-dimensional light from the windows on two walls and ceiling with vintage prairie style trim work you’ll see throughout. Original hardwood floors begin here and run throughout the first floor, and an arched opening leads to the hallway and kitchen.
Kitchen: Remodeled entirely over the past several years, this kitchen stands out for its modern style and efficiency. White custom cabinets with trim work to the ceiling give the room great height and ample storage. Topped with Corian countertops with a deep basin undermount sink, they house stainless steel appliances and are lined with a tile backsplash. Luxury vinyl floor, updated light fixture and ceiling fan, fresh paint, wainscot walls and radiator cover round out the updates. A door leads to the sunroom and basement.
Year-Round Sunroom: This terrific space features windows on three walls for endless natural light, the detailed ceiling again, and a durable laminate flooring. A door leads to the side yard and garage and it’s the perfect area for dining or relaxing with views of the picturesque backyard.
Bedrooms & Bath: The hardwood hallway leads to two first-floor bedrooms each well-sized with original floors, walk-in closets, and multi-dimensional natural light and the decorative ceilings again. The main bathroom features a new tile floor, tub and shower combination with tile surround, spacious vanity with solid surface counter and sink and elongated comfort-height toilet. A large linen closet and additional coat closet sit in the hallway as well.
Upstairs: Up the hardwood stairs with carpet runner you’ll find a knotty pine lined hallway to two large bedrooms and updated carpeting. Each room features a closet plus access to great additional storage space in the eaves, and are freshly painted continuing the cool, beachy vibe.
Basement & Mechanicals: Down the open staircase you’ll find a pleasant basement with new epoxy floor, laundry area, and a beautiful modern second full bathroom that was just added with tile flooring and 5’ tile shower. The remaining unfinished basement houses the mechanicals and offers plenty of storage space. All the windows there were replaced with vinyl ones. The boiler was replaced two years ago with a natural gas-fired one that provides on-demand hot water as well. Previously, the home was heated with oil. Upstairs, there are vinyl windows throughout. All the solid wood doors and trim were painted bright white. The home has public water/sewer and Spectrum cable for wifi.
Garage & Exterior: The exterior is low-maintenance with vinyl siding, vinyl windows, updated doors, composite decking and stairs, and an architectural shingled asphalt roof. The sellers enclosed much of the yard with vinyl picket and privacy fencing providing a quiet retreat with shade and green space with two pea-stone patio areas. The detached one-car garage offers an insulated steel overhead door with opener, work bench and service door. The blacktop driveway is easy to maintain through all seasons.
Location: The home is located in the Village of Ballston Spa, Town of Milton, and the Ballston Spa School District. Just outside the heart of the Village, you’ll find the distance to shops, eateries and retail measure in feet, not miles. Bustling Ballston Spa is popular for its historic role in Saratoga County via its natural springs and spas, and today for its artsy community of independent businesses and welcoming downtown area.
