Renovations to this brick ranch have recently been completed and the only thing needed is the personal touch.

Listed for $169,900 by Bill Lee and Associates Inc. Realtors, the ranch at 5898 Freeman Road has about 1,400 square feet of living space, plus a Florida room. The ranch sits on a corner lot within Washington Twp. and has a rear-entry, two-car garage.

The driveway is accessible from the main road and has an extra parking pad. The house sits at the center of the lot with formal entry facing the addressed road way.

Recently completed renovations have been made to the eat-in kitchen and both full bathrooms. Interior paint and updated neutral carpeting were also part of the renovations as were ceiling paddle fans, fixtures and hardware.

Formal entry opens into a small entry pad with guest closet. The nook opens into the formal living room, which has a picture window. Along one wall is a stone, wood-burning fireplace with raised hearth and wood mantel. On the opposite wall is a built-in glass display case with wood shelves and frame.

Accessible from the living room is the eat-in kitchen which has updated gray cabinetry with complimenting countertops. The cabinetry fills two walls and surrounds the appliances that include a range, dishwasher and refrigerator. A double sink is below a window that looks into the Florida room. The kitchen has ceramic-tile flooring, and there are laundry hook-ups within the eat-in area.

Off the kitchen is access to the two-car garage, which is heated and houses the water heater. A service door opens out to a small concrete pad which is the walkway to the 23-by-16-foot Florida room.

The Florida room has carpeting, screened windows, two entrances and extra electrical outlets. There is a spot for a wall air conditioning unit.

A hallway from the living room leads to three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Two of the three bedrooms have triple sliding-door closets with wood floors and built-in drawers. The main bedroom is at the back of the house and has an extra built-in linen cabinet and access to a full private bathroom. The bath has a tub/shower, single-sink vanity, updated mirror and light fixtures and vinyl flooring.

The guest bath has also been updated with a bureau vanity with solid-service counter and molded sink, a tub/shower with updated fiberglass surround, a frosted window and updated flooring.
