Imagine living in a nature preserve yet being just minutes away from downtown Columbia. This is your opportunity! Come home to this amazingly tranquil neighborhood and find the peace to anchor your busy life. The setting is perfect for you to create your own backyard oasis, with wooded views and access to the stream that borders the property. Columbia Association land and trails await you just on the other side! This contemporary ranch-style home offers an open concept floor plan and the owner’s suite on the main level, with a fully finished lower level providing an additional 3 bedrooms and a family room. An updated same size and model home in this neighborhood recently sold in the high $600’s. Enter the tiled foyer and your gaze is immediately drawn to the wall of windows along the entire length of the home showcasing the natural setting beyond. The open concept living and dining space is divided by a massive brick fireplace that serves as a partial partition. Cathedral ceilings, exposed wood beams, and wood flooring add to the beauty of the living/dining area. The kitchen is also open concept, and features all stainless-steel appliances, a 5-Burner Gas Thermador cooktop, a separate mini-fridge for beverages, and a center island with additional seating. Access to the covered carport is gained through this space. With direct views of the flowing stream, the owner’s suite offers generous closet space and an en-suite bathroom. The main level is completed by a half bath and slider access to the deck. The lower level contains 3 additional bedrooms, all nicely sized with large windows. A full bath is on this level, as well as a family room space anchored by another brick fireplace, and a large laundry room with a utility sink and more storage capacity. Under-stair storage is cleverly tucked away behind half doors, and a slider provides an easy walk-out to the patio. Built into the rear concrete patio and surrounded by decking is an in-ground pool that has not been opened for many years. The concrete itself requires maintenance. The new owner can choose to update the pool systems or fill it in and renovate/landscape this idyllic backyard space to fulfill their vision.
