Additions create versatility in Kettering brick ranch

Sitting diagonally on a corner lot, this brick ranch has received additions that create spacious social areas for a versatile floor plan.

Listed for $275,000 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the home at 4500 Rean Meadow Drive in Kettering has about 3,690 square feet of living space. The property has a semi-private back yard with two wood decks and an extra parking pad for the two-car garage.
