Come and see this charming mid-century ranch home in a well-established north Merced neighborhood just off North East Bear Creek. Situated on a one-quarter acre lot, this home was built by the original contractor to be his own personal residence. It features upgraded architectural interior features such as beautiful mid-century wood accents, storage and bookshelf built-ins, and two fireplaces. This lovingly cared for home boasts new Milgard windows (2020), new top of the line laminate flooring in 2/3 of the home, as well freshly painted common areas of the home. Light and bright formal living room with large picture window and spacious formal dining room leading to the step-down family room that doubles as an in-home work space (with additional half bath). Large laundry room and pantry area with access to the side entrance and oversized 2 car garage. This home has so many great hidden treasures and upgrades such as a cedar lined entry coat closet, a side entrance covered courtyard with brick planters, and an extended garage with drafting desk (original from the contractor!) where you could park a motorcycle or set up a workshop in what could be a third bay. Includes a Nest thermostat, smart garage door opener, and Orbit smart sprinkler system. New attic insulation was just completed, and the sewer line was redone in 2019. Large play structure with rubber safety mulch to stay.
