This home is off the market. It’s not easy to find such a SWEET 2000 square foot ranch , (not counting the partially finished basement) on a half acre + lot in an established neighborhood within the city limits. This may be one, of only 3 or 4, currently available! Bonus: It’s on the east side of Lafayette near shopping and the freeway!

The current owner has an obvious love of gardening that is reflected in the many flower gardens all around this home. There is even a water garden with a man-made water-fall.

From the driveway let’s walk up the geometric-patterned brick walk to the front door. Stepping inside, we notice the ceramic floored entry, and beyond, the champagne-colored carpeting. The home features two bow windows, one in front in the living room and one in back that offers a striking view of the back yard from the breakfast nook. Speaking of windows, all are crank-outs for easy cleaning.

The kitchen has oak cabinetry with grey countertops and grey and cream vinyl flooring. There is, of course, an attached two-car garage. The laundry area is located as you enter the home through the garage. There is also a door to the back yard from the laundry area. The formal dining room has crown molding, a chair rail, and a built-in china cabinet. The bedroom wing consists of 4 bedrooms, and 2 full baths. There is also a half-bath in the basement. The basement is interesting. It has wood walls half-way up and a wood ceiling. There is a carpeted family room with built-in bar and spotlighting. The unfinished portion of the basement contains a large woodworking shop.

Back upstairs and looking to the back of the home is a glassed (with screens) 4 seasons room with access to the back yard and, (I’ve saved this for last!) the in-ground 36’ x 18’ diving pool surrounded by the aforementioned landscaping and a wooded ravine to the rear. Naturally, the entire rear yard is fenced for privacy and security.
