Sunday, July 13, 2003

Sometimes making the match between the perfect house and a family is crucial. But the house at 1560 Lexington Avenue in Cape Girardeau seems to be ideal just the right family.

An open house today from 1 to 3 p.m. will give you a glimpse of what this house offers. It's a classic red brick two-story home with white vinyl siding, and charming butter-colored entrance door and shutters. It has amenities like a two-car garage and main level laundry. It has an established yard with well-kept shrubs. It even has a large patio with a lattice-work privacy wall and lots of shade.

This is one of those houses that seems to have it all ... and now it just needs a family to live there.

The interior of this home was decorated by Rust & Martin, so it has plenty of elegant touches. Wood parquet flooring is found in the foyer, and a cool sea mist green carpeting is found in the formal living room along with matching drapes. Two large windows in the living room allow ample natural light.

The formal dining room also has a double window with matching drapery and carpet color, and a classic brass and glass chandelier on a dimmer switch that give you for perfect mood-setting lighting.

The kitchen has a tile-look linoleum floor and harvest gold appliances, including the refrigerator with an indoor ice dispenser. Pantry space is plentiful behind bi-fold doors. The kitchen has two large windows, one placed above the sink for a pleasant view during meal preparation.

The family room's focal point is a cozy brick fireplace with custom cabinetry flanking each side. A patio door exits to the large patio. A main level half bath is conveniently located nearby. It has been recently remodeled, with ceramic tile flooring and a handsome pedestal sink with brass and porcelain hardware. A gold decorator vanity mirror adds a great touch.

Upstairs are the home's four bedrooms. All have plentiful closet space and are nicely decorated. An upstairs bathroom is centrally located to the bedrooms, and has been handsomely decorated with white ceramic tile floor and an appealing beige and light blue plaid wall covering.

The master suite includes a bedroom with seafoam green plush carpeting and wallpaper that incorporates the seafoam green and peach color combination. In the bathroom, a white ceramic tile floor leads you to a step-in shower.

For even more living space, this home includes a finished basement with a large L-shaped room that can be easily zoned into an entertainment and game room. A large unfinished storage area allows for additional crafts or storage area.

This home is currently priced at $164,900, and is available for viewing through Prudential Bridgeport Realtors, 335-0121.
