Just imagine how much fun you are going to have in this large family home built for parties, fun, laughter, having visitors over, barbeques, & pool parties. This very well decorated & appointed home is so cozy for a large home; from the massive kitchen with a computer nook for looking up your recipes, to the views from the formal and informal dining areas to the multiple propane fireplaces, this home screams warmth and loving. A heated double car garage will keep your cars nice and warm on a cool day, and could double as a workshop. The basement is ready for a big screen TV with surround sound, pool table, or games room. This home is the cleanest bank foreclosure I have seen, and it is priced to sell to one new lucky owner looking for a bargain in PEl Real Estate. Wow! Exciting YouTube HD Video attached.
