Beat back the dog days of summer (which can last for five months around here) with this inviting traditional brick ranch boasting a true bonus: a refreshing swimming pool. Inside, soft carpet and warm tones of beige and sunny yellow put you right at home. A huge den with a fireplace and exposed wood-beam ceiling ensures you can unwind and relax in cozy comfort. Other features include three spacious bedrooms, plus a home office, a large laundry room, a formal dining room, an airy kitchen with tons of counter space for the avid cook and rich wood cabinets, and a breakfast room bathed in sunlight by a floor-to-ceiling window. Outside, an iron gate on the driveway provides added security for the two-vehicle carport with storage closets; the level front yard provides plenty of gorgeous sod; and the backyard "" with the shimmering pool and expansive patio and deck surrounding it "" is a low-maintenance oasis that has a little side garden full of flowers and small shrubs if you've got a green thumb.
