In addition, the detached garage offers car and hobby enthusiasts an alcove for creativity, with abundant room for covered RV, trailer parking, motorcycles, tools and more.

This home has a wonderful floor plan. Those searching for a multi-generational home need look no further, for the floor plan of this home is perfect for such. There are currently five bedrooms, three full baths and two half-baths. The first floor master bedroom, coupled with the finished room over the garage, offers the ability to create two master suites, for each has a private bath. The rooms are constructed on opposite sides of the home, so privacy is ensured. There is yet another option for a third master bedroom, located on the home's second floor. This large bedroom has additional, unfinished square footage adjacent to the walk in closet. This could be developed into a full bath, as well.
