Listed for $149,900 by Keller Williams Home Town Realty, the home at 1161 Crestwood Hills Drive has about 1,460 square feet of living space.

A new overhead garage door was installed in 2017 with an electronic opener. A concrete driveway and extended rear patio were poured in 2013. The roof is about eight years old, and the other kitchen appliances were new about six years ago.
The interior has six-panel white doors with matching wood trim. Wood-laminate flooring fills the kitchen, dining room and family room. Carpeting is expected to be replaced.
Formal entry opens from the leaded-glass front door directly into the living room. A large entry pad has tile flooring while the carpeting fills the living room and continues down the hallway that leads to the three bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
The galley-style kitchen is accessible from the living room and the hallway. Maple 42-inch cabinetry fills both walls and beveled-countertops provide plenty of work space. The stainless-steel appliances include a range, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. There is a pantry closet for additional storage space.
At the back of the house is the combined dining room and family room. A brick, wood-burning fireplace fills one wall of the family room. The brick has been painted, and there is a raised hearth and fluted wood-beam mantel. French doors have built-in blinds, and there is a sliding screen door that opens to the patio that runs the width of the house. The back yard is semi-private.
A laundry room, accessible from the dining room, includes a wash sink, shelves, tile flooring and has a rear exit door. There is also a closet off the dining room.
