Holy Mackarel! This place just keeps goin’ and goin’…wow! This week, we’re featuring a true Ranch style home at 505 N. Topping that’s guaranteed to please anyone with a large family who loves to entertain. Built in the mid 1950s, this house has been in the same family since it was built and has been updated thoroughly throughout.

Outside the front door there’s a lovely koi pond with a landscaped waterfall that’s a very cool addition to the front yard. Hardwood floors welcome the guest into the spacous front room that blends with the massive eat-in kitchen. A huge breakfast bar runs the length of the kitchen and is capped by a 1.5-inch granite counter top. As an added bonus, most of the appliances stay and the ones that are not built-in are negotiable according to the homeowner.

Just off the kitchen is a large den with a huge wood-burning fireplace with a heatilator insert for added bonus during the winter. Behind the kitchen is a spacious breakfast room, too, with a commanding view of the huge, fenced backyard.

There are three bedrooms on the main level, one of which is a huge master suite, complete with walk-in closet, fireplace, and a cavernous bathroom with a Jacuzzi style tub and separate shower. Downstairs in the finished basement, there’s another fireplace in the rec-room as well as a summer kitchen, two additional bedrooms and an unfinished half-bath.

Mechanically, the house has everything you’d ever want. The electrical service has recently been updated to 200-amp, so one could conceivably run every appliance in the house at the same time and still have power to spare. A built-in central vac system makes sure cleaning is as easy as 1-2-3, and the hardwood floors are in excellent condition. There are a number of utility rooms in the basement as well as the two-deep, two-car garage that’s actually got its own power source and furnace unit. (Did I say this house went on forever?) The absolute icing on the cake though is out in the backyard where a custom built tree house stands roughly 8 feet off the ground, built – you guessed it – around a large tree in the backyard. It even has its own power source!  

There it is folks, this week’s feature home, and what a home it is! The list price for all of this, and trust me, there’s a lot of it, is a very modest $149,900. If you’d like to take a detailed walkthrough of this lovely true Ranch home in the 500 block of N. Topping, call Bill or Jim Lawless at Northeast Realty today.
