NoLibs is still within reach–this 10-year-old house with garage has an ideal layout and great outdoor space. In a sea of cookie-cutter new construction, this home has a style all its own with a layout geared toward how people actually live today that perfectly balances private and communal areas. The ceramic-tiled main entry leads right into the heart of the home: a wide-open great room alongside a large U-shaped kitchen. It’s a natural place for guests to gather, and there’s plenty of hangout space whether you’re hosting or just sitting down to a weeknight dinner. The kitchen features gleaming stainless steel appliances, including a five-burner LG range and bottom-freezer French door Kenmore refrigerator, oak cabinets offering gobs of storage, and enough space to add an island or perhaps a bar cart. This room opens onto the spacious rear patio with side breezeway, perfect for hiding away garden tools while entertaining al fresco. The second floor is where you’ll find the true living room, a breezy open space with like-new oak floors and a powder room with custom built-in shelving. Just down the hall is the large master bedroom suite with a huge walk-in closet and pretty sliding doors opening to a balconette. The en-suite bath is well-appointed with ceramic tile flooring, walls and shower surround, a double vanity, whirlpool tub and a large linen closet. On the third floor you’ll find another spacious front bedroom with a surprise city skyline view, the large second full bath, and a smaller back bedroom ideal for a home office, as it leads out onto the quiet rear roofdeck. The possibilities are endless for this large outdoor space–Zen garden, hot tub, container garden or just a nice spot to bask in the sun. The basement is large enough to provide plenty of extra storage and houses a laundry area for the Kenmore frontloaders, but its high ceilings make it super-finishable for use as a playroom for little ones or game room for the grown-ups. (The current owners have a full-size shuffleboard table!) Don’t forget about the large attached garage–circling around for ages looking for parking will never be an issue, not to mention the unofficial second space in front of the driveway. Bardot is right around the corner, and all the other NoLibs restaurants, shopping and nightlife along the 2nd St strip are super close.
