This Cape Cod-style home, owned and care for by the same family since 1971, offers a quiet retreat from a noisy world. Built in 1955 and situated on 0.68 acres in a quiet neighborhood of Millersville, the home is nestled amongst mature trees and rolling landscape. As you enter the home, the open living room allows for space to breathe and plenty of light. Hardwood floors, built-in shelving, and a fireplace with lovely mantel create a space for nights of novel-reading, movie marathons, and Christmas Eve cocktails. A huge closet opens just inside the entryway for coats and boots, and includes an expansive cedar closet for additional storage. The living room leads to two first-floor bedrooms, along with a full bathroom. Offering space for a home office, secondary bedrooms, or guest quarters this first floor suite provides privacy, space, and comfort. The kitchen provides ample workspace, cabinetry, and storage, as well as an inviting space for dining in or sipping coffee on a brisk morning. The kitchen opens to the dining room, which has a built-in corner cupboard and beautiful flooring. Upstairs, the primary bedroom provides a sweeping view of the back garden and lush foliage of the property. Wake up to the sound of mourning doves, or fall asleep listening to the sigh of the autumn wind moving through the trees. It’s a pastoral paradise. A full bathroom completes the upstairs suite. An additional attic space is sprawling, rough-hewn, and itching to be transformed into a man-cave, library, craft space, or anything else you can imagine. The basement has a large family room with a beautiful brick fireplace. A large laundry area is complete with a utility sink and shelving for organizing all your laundry and cleaning supplies. Also in the basement is extensive storage and workspace, a launching pad for all of your carpentry or renovation projects. A high-efficiency gas furnace has been installed to keep your water hot and temperature toasty, even in the dead of winter. Once you have seen the unique and inviting interior, saunter out of doors. A partially screened-in breezeway leads from the dining room out to the garage. Use this outdoor space for a reading nook or dining area for eating al fresco on a summer evening. The attached 2-car garage guarantees there will be a home for your vehicle tools, supplies, gadgets, and machines. Situated in the Penn Manor School District, and just around the corner from Millersville University, this neighborhood is known for its “college town” feel and welcoming community. Come and make Wabank Road your forever home.
