Contributing Writer

Several updates have been made to this two-story house, located just minutes from downtown Miamisburg.

Listed for $87,900 by Collins Real Estate, the vinyl-sided home at 709 E. Sycamore St. has about 1,540 square feet of living space. The house is located on a one-way street a few blocks from the downtown. There is a covered front porch and a covered rear porch plus an open back yard with fire pit and alley access. The full, unfinished basement has walk-out access to the back yard and a cellar-style stairwell from the inside. The exterior has updated vinyl siding and vinyl windows.

Home updates include neutral carpeting within the main social areas, refinished hardwood flooring in the dining room and kitchen, neutral paint colors and updated central air conditioning and gas, forced-air furnace.

Formal entry opens through an updated exterior door from the front porch into the living room. Tall windows allow for plenty of natural light. To the right off the living room is a family room or possible first floor bedroom as there are two closets and access to a full bathroom. The room has a bay-like shape with four windows and a ceiling paddle fan. One closet has a standard door while the other closet door blends into the wall treatment.

The full bathroom has a tub/shower, a single-sink vanity, wood flooring and storage cabinet nooks.

Off the living room toward the back of the house is the dining room with cherry hardwood flooring that continues into the step-saver kitchen. Access to the upstairs is from the dining room, and a closet door provides access to the cellar staircase to the basement.

The kitchen has a wall of cabinetry and countertops that surround a double sink. Built into one wall are shelves, drawers and cabinets. A door opens from the kitchen to the rear covered porch and the back yard.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a space for a second bathroom. Two bedrooms at the front of the house have hallway access and access to each other. One room has two closet nooks and carpeting while the other has painted hardwood flooring.

The third bedroom is at the back of the house and has a deep single-door closet. All the doors to the bedrooms have been updated. At the end of the hallway is a room with plumbing available for a possible second bathroom and laundry services. The room has a window, freshly painted walls and vinyl flooring but the room does need to be finished.
