THIS HOME IS BETTER THAN MOST OF THE OTHER HOMES ON THE MARKET. THE DETAILED LISTING BELOW WILL EXPLAIN WHY THIS HOME IS BETTER. This beautiful 4 bedroom home has been renovated with care and concern for craftsmanship and longevity. The internal walls and ceiling of the house are all half inch drywall. There is no old plaster or lead paint walls. The walls between the bedrooms and the hallways on the inside of the house have been insulated for sound. This helps keep the rooms more private. All the windows in the house are double pane, thermally insulated, high efficiency windows. The HVAC system has been modernized. The furnace is brand new. The A/C unit is two years old. The HVAC ducts and piping are new. There is new metal duct work in the walls and a metal trunk runs down the middle of the house that feeds the rooms. The connections in the system have duct seal gluing most of the metalwork together or metal duct tape. There is no HVAC duct work that goes underneath the house. All the HVAC duct work runs through the ceiling and then down the walls or through the ceiling. This is very important because it helps keep the system healthy. The air system is not in the basement, nor is it in the crawl space. It is far away from those areas. The HVAC system is in the ceiling which is a healthy place. The vents that supply the rooms have been strategically placed to be on the inside walls. This keeps the conditioned air on the inside of the house, making the system very effective because the vents are not in the crawl space or in the outside walls.
The ceilings of the first floor have a foot of insulation in them. This helps keep the rising heat in the house and protects it from the attic.
The outside walls of the house are all thermally insulated. This area of town most of the older homes don't have insulation in the walls.
The floors of the main level are all insulated with batt insulation. Going across the floor beams of the bottom of the house are wires that traverse at a right angle to the floor beams that are fastened there and pulled tight every few feet that keep the insulation from falling out between the floors. This is much more efficient than traditional "lightning rod" insulation brackets. The wire is fastened to the floor joists and will not come down, hence the insulation will stay inside the floor and hold up over time with people stepping on the floor and gravity pulling down on it.
The water heater is brand new.
The piping that goes underneath the house has been modernized. All the live water lines have been upgraded to PEX piping. The PEX piping will resist breaking if it ever freezes. Yes, the PEX piping will resist breaking if it ever freezes. This is what helps people sleep at night, knowing that their pipes are secure against the elements. All the PEX piping has been taken to the next level and they have been thermally insulated to help keep in the warmth and protect the water from the cold. The insulation on the pipes is high grade soft foam insulation. This is the same insulation that is used to keep Freon HVAC lines insulated and energy efficient.
The kitchen has all maple cabinets, tile floor and a washer/dryer. The washer/dryer are in a closet off the kitchen.
The electrical service for the house is 100 amps. All the wiring in the house is Romex cable. The house is equipped with new up to code GFI outlets. All of the light switches are new. All of the outlets are new. All of the cover plates for the switches and the outlets are new. The ceiling fans are new. All the light fixtures are new.
The master bathroom has a new vanity, sink and countertop. The countertop has a cultured stone look. The vanity has a sink top with under mounted sink. The faucet is a new Delta Lahara. The shower has a large whirlpool Jacuzzi tub. The shower walls are tile. The bathroom floor is tile. The toilet seats are new and have a soft close mechanism.
The second bathroom has a new vanity, sink and countertop. The countertop has a culture stone look. The vanity has a sink top with under mounted sink. The faucet is a new Delta Lahara. The shower has a large whirlpool Jacuzzi tub. The shower walls are tile. The bathroom floor is tile. The toilet seats are new and have a soft close mechanism.
The flooring in the house is either tile or brand new carpet with padding. The front and side entrance have a thick LVP flooring to help protect carpet when entering the house.
The outside of the house is covered with CertainTeed brand vinyl siding and has aluminum wrapping around the fascia and posts.
The floor boards on the deck in the back yard are brand new. They have been hand-selected for minimal amount of knots. The fence in the backyard that parallels the alley is made of pressure treated wood and cedar. The fence is very unique because it was constructed such that a panel can be easily removed and a vehicle can be backed into the yard. The panel has a handle on it and is constructed to be easily removed. The cedar was chosen because it has natural chemistry to resist rotting and weather gracefully. The gate to enter the yard has been constructed with care. The gate door is hung on galvanized pipes that are cemented into the ground. So the hinge and the strike side of the door are bound by galvanized pipes. This gives the gate longevity because the pipes won't warp like wood will warp over time. Instead the gate opening will stay true over time because the pipes will keep the opening size the same over time. This means that the gate will open and close reliably, which is what we all want.
