COVID-19 has many of us looking to escape close confines and opt for more spacious surrounds. This 2340-square foot Riverton home is set on just over half an acre – 0.57 acres to be exact, and even includes horse rights.
Boasting canal access for light watercraft activities – picture early morning or evening kayaking or SUP’ing before returning to dry land to tend to your beloved steeds who are more than welcome to act as lawnmowers on your delightful property.
Step inside this ample, dedicated three-bedroom, three-bathroom home and you’ll be smitten with its unique entryway featuring a custom balustrade constructed from 150-year-old railroad tie and rebar railing. The adjoining living room’s white-washed bricked fireplace echoes the entryway’s nod to yesteryear, with the same reclaimed antique railway timber – beautifying an already inviting space with its Colonial-inspired built-ins offering thoughtful yet decorative storage.
The modern farmhouse-inspired kitchen oozes charm, warmth and oh so much natural light! ‘Rocky Mountain sky blue’ kitchen cabinetry contrasts against the rustic, recycled brick backsplash and stunning timber countertop, while complementing the trio of industrial steel-gray and cornflower blue pendants. Sleek, flat black Samsung appliances appeal to the gadgetry-focused and gourmands will delight in the motion- and remote-controlled LED lighting overhead and underneath the cabinets, illuminating epicurean hankerings any time of day or night.
All bedrooms feature plush carpeting, freshly painted white sideboards and a soothing palette of blues and greens to calm and welcome rest and relaxation. Subtle decorative touches continue the modern farmhouse theme throughout the home with flair. Bathrooms feature industrial timber and iron shelving and the master suite boasts a jetted tub and integrated heater to cleanse, soothe and massage any woes away.
The basement bedroom has been converted into a sartorial haven (read: walk-in closet) yet can easily convert to a bedroom/study or utility space. The cozy living room is begging for gaming or TV time, while practicing safe social distancing. The stone-walled fireplace adds to the room’s linger longer cabin-like ambiance to negate any television binge guilt.
The combined three-car garage and shed features a 63-foot area to park a RV or consider converting the space to a stable if you so choose. Other outdoor perks include the vast expanse of land to do as you please, mature trees, unlimited water share, and a ride-on lawnmower is included with settlement – very useful if you’re sans horses.
Buying a home is an investment but you don’t want that investment to erode into a literal money pit with costly repairs or replacement on appliances, electrical and plumbing, HVAC, roofing and windows. This home ticks all the boxes in terms of being ‘Muve-in ready’ with 2019 appliances and USB ports throughout, grounded electrical wiring with an updated panel, copper water lines, a 98%-efficient HVAC (replaced in 2010), and a new(ish) roof installed approximately six years ago with double-pane storm windows.
If you’re seeking serenity – now and in the future, call Matt at Muve Group on 801 243 7006 to schedule your virtual COVID-19-compliant viewing of this lovely family home and be prepared to lead the good life.
