From the street, you'll see a two-car garage, a small lawn and a red brick wall. A hidden gate in that wall opens to a private courtyard where a paved pathway is lined with tidy lilacs, rhododendrons and a lacy red Japanese maple. The path stops at a large deck that flows toward the home's front door.
Stepping inside, the first thing you'll notice is the view. Two walls of plate glass windows in the living room overlook a private park where a duck pond is punctuated by the fanned spray of a fountain. Every room on the residence's north side has the same serene view.
A sliding glass door in the living room opens to a balcony that stretches across the rear of the house and ends outside of the formal dining room. The balcony seems the perfect spot for enjoying casual al fresco dinners.
The two-story home sits on a .12-acre parcel. The private courtyard is maintained by the owner, while the front yard and private park are maintained via annual homeowners' association dues of $315.
The dwelling's main level contains the living room, kitchen, formal dining room and master suite, which has a jetted bathtub but no shower. In the walkout basement there are three bedrooms, a family room and two storage rooms.
Pros: Low-maintenance family home overlooking private park and fountain.
Cons: No shower in master bathroom.
Open House: Sunday, Aug. 22, 1-3 p.m.
