Located just minutes from the downtown district of Troy, this two-story house has been updated with neutral carpeting throughout, a fresh coat of paint and a roof installed in March of this year.

Listed for $129,900 by RE/MAX Victory Real Estate, the vinyl-sided house on 20 W. Simpson St. has about 2,000 square feet of living space. A covered front porch is accented by vinyl spindles. Steps, leading from the front sidewalk to the porch, are from the side driveway, which provides off-street parking. A double gate opens to the back yard, which has a storage shed and concrete patio.

Formal entry opens from the covered porch into a foyer hallway with a chandelier, wood laminate flooring and an open staircase with window at the landing. Off to the left, two separate doors lead from the foyer into the formal living room and dining room. A glass-panel door opens from the foyer into the living room, which has a corner electric fireplace. Wood laminate flooring fills the living room and continues into the dining room. Hardwood floors are under the laminate.

The dining room has a bow window with window seat. Built-in cabinetry flanks the window and is built from floor to ceiling. Off the dining room is an office or study with knotty-pine walls had wood laminate flooring. A door opens from the office to the back yard, giving the room a private entrance.

Oak cabinetry fills one wall and surrounds a window within the kitchen. The double sink is below the window and the kitchen comes equipped with a dishwasher, range and refrigerator. Ceramic tile accents the wall space above the sink and below the hanging cabinets. A walk-through pantry allows for additional storage and leads to a combination laundry room and half bathroom.

An enclosed breezeway off the kitchen has access to the back yard. The cellar basement is accessible from the kitchen and has a workshop space, storage and the home’s mechanical systems, which include central air condition and gas, forced-air furnace.

The second level had three bedrooms, a full bathroom and a sun room. The largest bedroom is at the front of the house and has a walk-in closet. The two smaller bedrooms have step-in closets, and they both have access to the sun room. The sun room has seven vinyl windows with blinds, a ceiling paddle fan and carpeting. The design allows for a variety of uses.

One bedroom has pull-down attic access. The attic is floored and has dormer window nooks.

The bathroom has a decorative bowl within a granite countertop on an oak bureau vanity. There is a fiberglass tub/shower, a triple-mirror medicine cabinet with matching light bar and a built-in linen shelf and cabinet.
