Kettering ranch-style home has all the right stuff

A fresh coat of paint and updated neutral flooring are the finishing touches to this home in an established neighborhood of Kettering.

Listed for $295,000 by eXp Realty, the brick ranch at 4533 Timberwilde Drive has about 1,995 square feet of living space. With a tree-lined creek that runs along the backyard, the semi-private property has a covered backyard patio and a two-car garage with storage, a side service door and pull-down attic access.

Formal entry is tucked diagonally off the front patio porch and opens into a small entry pad between the formal areas and the central foyer hallway. Light neutral carpeting has been installed in the formal living room, dining room, hallway and all four bedrooms. Wood vinyl flooring has been installed in the kitchen, bathrooms and family room.

Off the foyer pad, the living room is at the front of the house and has two front-facing windows with custom drapery. Vinyl windows are throughout the home.

The dining room has a hanging light fixture, a chair rail and access to the galley-style kitchen. The kitchen is also accessible from the hallway that leads to the bedroom wing.

Oak cabinetry fills two walls of the kitchen, which includes an appliance garage, pantry cabinet and microwave shelf. Pull-out shelves are within most of the cabinetry below the counters. The pantry cabinet has a pull-out spice rack. Appliances include a range, dishwasher and refrigerator, and there is a double stainless-steel sink. The wood-laminate flooring fills the kitchen and continues into the adjoining breakfast room and combined family room. Tucked into one corner of the breakfast room is a hutch with glass-cabinet doors. A ceiling light with paddle fan is centered above the breakfast area, which has a picture window that looks out over the backyard.

One wall of the family room has paneled walls with built-in bookcases that flank the brick fireplace. The wood-burning fireplace has a small raised-brick hearth and a wood-beam mantel that blends with the bookcases. Large sliding patio doors open from the family room to the covered patio. There is a storage room access off the patio. Another door opens from the family room into the attached garage. The utility room is also accessible from the breakfast room and has the laundry services.

Four bedrooms and two full bathrooms are located off the hallway. One bedroom has a double sliding door closet while two others have single-door closets. Another bedroom has a built-in book nook with open shelves. The primary bedroom is accessible at the end of the hallway and has a picture window and a large walk-in closet.

Two full bathrooms are side by side off the hallway as the original floor plan was redesigned to add a larger primary bedroom. One bath has a tub-shower with sliding glass doors and a single-sink vanity. The other bathroom has a whirlpool tub-shower, a single-sink vanity with a matching triple-mirror medicine cabinet and light bar.
