Welcome to 24 Kurve Inn Road, a beautifully maintained 2+3 bedroom brick bungalow nestled within a rural landscape, yet minutes from the heart of Newcastle.
Set on approximately 0.4 acres of land, this property is a nature-lover’s and gardener’s delight. Both the front and back yards are resplendent with perennial plantings, while majestic mature trees provide shade and even more greenery. In the front yard, an arbor graces the beginning of an interlocking walkway to the covered front porch and entrance. The backyard has large deck partially covered with an ivy-laden pergola and a south-facing wall with privacy louvers, that overlooks a gorgeous stone and perennial garden shaded by trees - and there is also a huge vegetable and flower garden drenched in sunlight. In addition, the yard has sheds for seasonal equipment and storage - and the home has an attached double door garage that has side and back yard access doors, stairs which access the home’s lower level, as well as driveway parking for up to six vehicles.
Decorative glass panels accent the front door and its sidelights, which opens into a spacious ceramic tiled foyer with a double coat closet. The entire home showcases generously sized principal rooms and comfortably sized bedrooms - and some of the interior features seen on the main level include crown moldings in the foyer, the principal rooms, and the master bedroom; hardwood flooring in the hallway, and the living and dining rooms; as well as very large windows throughout with multiple exposures for maximum natural light.
The living room has a double French door entry off the foyer and an east-facing bow window - and shares an open concept L-shaped configuration with the adjacent dining room, which features a corner fireplace surrounded by a gorgeous oak mantle and finished with a tiled hearth and accents - and both rooms additionally feature ceiling fans. The wall separating the dining room from breakfast area has a wall cut-out for an openness between the rooms, hanging from which is a leaded glass decorative window. The breakfast area also features a ceiling fan and has the sliding door walk-out onto the backyard deck, and this space and the kitchen are finished with durable vinyl flooring.
The kitchen showcases beautiful wood cabinetry with molded uppers and amazing storage that includes a huge wall pantry, and this very functional work space also features a ceramic back splash with a glass-and-stone mosaic-tiled accent border; lots of counter space; as well as a astainless steel double sink, oven with smooth cooktop, dishwasher, and fridge with bottom mount freezer.
The north wing go the home features two bedrooms with laminate flooring, a linen closet, two washrooms, and a laundry room. The common-use washroom features vinyl flooring, a vanity with drop-in basin, and an acrylic shower area with glass door and pot light; the laundry room has a front load washer and dryer, double closet, and doors to the backyard and the garage; and the second bedroom has a double closet and a ceiling fan. The master bedroom also has a ceiling fan as well as two double closets, and its ensuite washroom showcases a wood vanity with an elegant drop-in basin, vinyl flooring, and a bath/shower combo with tiled interior half walls and a jetted tub.
Brand new broadloom has been laid on the staircase to, and throughout most of, the incredibly spacious lower level - which also has oversized windows in most of the rooms. This level features closet storage; a large workshop that provides access to a walk-in pantry/storage room; and an unfinished storage room that has walk-up access to the garage - which does offer an opportunity for conversion of some (or all) of this level into a self-contained in-law suite. The family recreation area is exceptional in size, offering plenty of room for entertaining, conversation, play space, or TV watching. Of the three bedrooms on this level, two are at the north side of the home and with both having ample closet space - while the largest of the three can be found off the rec area.
