First-Time Find: A Home with Personality in Levittown
Choosing your first home can be exhilarating, but also frustrating at the same time. You may be searching for Pinterest-worthy homes and come across the perfect space, only to realize that in no reality will you pay that much for a house.
Look no further, because we found a perfect first home to match all your needs. There’s no shortage of statement rooms in this beautiful and affordable Levittown home, a 1950s ranch house that underwent a total makeover not too long ago.
Once you step through the tiled foyer, you’ll notice immediately that this is no ordinary 1950s rancher thanks to all the upgrades showcased by the open floor plan of the main room, from the new laminate wood floor to the recessed lighting to the energy-saving ceiling fans. At the center of the space, a quirky, exposed brick fireplace serves as the centerpiece of the space, separating and uniting the kitchen/dining area and living room.
The eat-in kitchen is a real stunner, with custom wooden cabinets, stainless steel appliances, upgraded light fixtures, tiled backsplash and a charming breakfast bar attached to the fireplace. With plenty of space flooded by light from two large front windows, the sunlit dining area is a perfect place to entertain and enjoy meals with your loved ones. The updated powder room has been beautifully done with a trendy vessel sink, chocolate-brown ceramic floor tiles and matching backsplash.
A bonus room in what had been this home’s garage is the perfect opportunity for new homeowners looking to get creative. Whether this be a sitting area, game room, office, or a guest room, the possibilities are endless. The French double doors leading to the front yard are a nice, classy touch. Behind this space is the laundry room with additional cabinet space and matching Samsung front-loaders.
This home includes three sizable bedrooms with tons of closet space, making for comfortable living. An oversized hallway closet is perfect for extra storage along with the attic, accessed by a pull-down door. The updated full bathroom features ceramic tile flooring with a tiled bath surround and shower backsplash in complimentary colors.
Outside, the rear yard is generously spacious and ideal for entertaining lots of friends or hosting summer barbecues. The underground oil tank was replaced by a new above-ground tank five years ago, but as this home has a new electric heat pump, you’ll only need to fill it for emergency backup heating. The sewer lines, the roof, and all the windows have also been replaced within the last few years.
