This large, 2-story home is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with good neighbors. It is loaded with amenities, so pay attention! :-) With greenbelt on two sides of this property, it is very quiet and private. With a large fenced yard, and plenty of room in front, too, you won't feel cramped like some neighborhoods. The house is in a fantastic location. You can walk to Kentwood HS, or attend either of the coveted Matson MS or Crestwood Elementary schools in Kent's School District. And all of the shopping Covington (Costco, Wal-Mart, & Kohl's, too name a few) are just around the corner. As you walk past the spacious, 3-car garage and up to the front porch you will feel the serenity that comes with a private front yard. Not many homes can boast that! Step inside and you will be greeted by a formal living room on the left connected to a formal dining room. In the back is a large kitchen with huge, tiled counters and hardwood floors. Lots of cabinetry and a pantry make sure you have room for all of those Costco runs! Appliances include: s/s fridge with water/ice; gas range; over-range microwave; dishwasher; disposal; double, deep kitchen sink. The kitchen is open to the family room so the chef is not left out of the conversation, and can keep an eye on the little ones if need be. A wood fireplace with stone hearth accent the family room. There is a spare bedroom downstairs which could also be used as an office. A full bath serves the bedroom and guests and occupants downstairs. Also downstairs is a large utility room with washer/dryer hook-ups and a utility sink for cleaning up those messy jobs. Upstairs there is a large bonus room. This room has an armoire, so could be used as a bedroom, or simply as a play room or hobby room to control the chaos. Two more bedrooms upstairs are served by a full bath with double sinks -- another rare find! The master suite includes a full walk-in closet and a 5-piece, en suite bath that features a large, jetted tub, separate shower, and double sinks. The large, fenced backyard includes yet more privacy, and with a greenbelt on the other side, quiet as well. The s/s BBQ stays! The large patio will make for great entertaining and enjoying of the mature landscaping. Other amenities: air conditioning; bullnose (rounded) corners upstairs & down; 2" wide blinds; raspberries/strawberries/rose garden; 6-panel doors; vaulted ceilings; walking trails w/ pond; Soos Creek biking trail; Lake Meridian nearby; landscaping professionally cared for so you don't have to!; tile counters; hardwood floors; electronic thermostat; addl. storage in garage; automatic garage door openers. Terms: 12-month lease. $2,000 security deposit; $400 admin fee; $40/adult app fee. Last month's rent deposit staged over 4 months to ease the burden. All utilities by tenant. $50/mo. landscaping fee.
