The first thing any visitor notices is the soft glow of natural light, streaming in from every direction, thanks to vaulted ceilings and skylights. Calming, Scandinavian vibes can be felt throughout.

The sellers made many updates during their years of ownership, including a stylish new kitchen, refinished maple floors, standing seam metal roof, mini split ac & heat, cable railings on rear deck, new appliances throughout, and new exterior paint. With an open floorplan, the Joyful Cabin is the perfect place to gather and entertain. In the winter, the wood-burning fireplace provides a warm hearth, and in the summer you can open the sliding doors onto the rear deck for seamless indoor/outdoor living.

The home’s spacious layout has the primary suite, with enclosed full bath, on one end of the house—and two guest bedrooms and a second full bathroom on the opposite end, offering all occupants privacy and comfort. If you’re in need of more space, the partially-finished lower level can easily be completed for a rec room, office/gym, or other accessory space. The lower-level already has a full bath and rustic wood-paneled walls, as well as sliding glass doors and lots of windows that help bring the light and outdoors in.

The two-car garage completes the lower level, and there is also a detached studio building for hobbies, storage, or other accessory use. Two additional sheds provide for outdoor tool and wood storage, as well. Mature hardwoods encircle the property, providing privacy, while smaller specimen trees like peach and ornamental cherry dot the cleared areas closer to the house. Take the winding foot path down to the fire pit and roast some marshmallows in the summer, or sit on the screened in porch and watch the light change through the seasons. This home has everything you need to live a comfortable, modern life in the woods.

A great package in a great location, for the full-timer or weekender!
