PRE-INSPECTED HOME! Tucked away in Forest Hills, this brick beauty is a solid, lovingly maintained home. Pride of ownership is evident in every room of this house. The living room feels airy and bright with soaring vaulted ceilings, and the dining room is large enough to host even the largest of family gatherings. The kitchen is the epitome of classic style with plenty of cabinetry, a built-in desk, double sink, tiled floors, and a center island with room for seating. The family room is perfectly positioned in the heart of the home boasting features like a brick fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and ceiling fan. Access to the deck/screened porch is a breeze through two sets of sliding doors. No more working-from-home from your couch! This home has an exceptional office with a desk, shelving/storage, and enough room to easily accommodate more than one person. Either use this space to remote work or set up a functional space for a homework room for virtual students. The 1st floor boasts even more thoughtful touches like floor to ceiling windows and gleaming hardwood floors. The primary bedroom was beautifully designed with a separate dressing area, walk-in closet, and attached full bath. Each bedroom is spacious with ample closet space. Entertain in the finished lower level family room in the walkout basement or spend a quiet evening on the screened porch with wood ceiling and skylights. The mature trees offer privacy and even the occasional deer sighting. Geothermal heat is economical, and the opportunities for storage are endless (make sure you check out the walk-in attic above the garage!) Other highlights of this home include 1st floor laundry, all new doorknobs and hardware, and a fantastic 2 car garage. Please see the incredible pre-listing home inspection report attached in Bright. Original owners! This home is a joy to see!
To the future owners of 2417 W. Bayberry Drive,
We are the original owners. We chose this neighborhood because the homes were custom built along beautiful Blue Mountain. We chose a lot where the living area faced south. We liked the house’s floor plan: lots if natural light, 1st floor study/office, laundry/mud room from extra wide garage, family room that opens to the kitchen, dining room that extends into the living room.
We modified the master bedroom floor plan to give us: a separate dressing area that would not disturb a sleeping spouse, a walk-in closet, an additional large hall closet, and a large walk in attic above the garage. The hall closet has roughed in plumbing that allows a future owner to add a tub or hot tub!
When the lot was graded, we happily discovered we had an exposed basement. We later finished part of the basement and added a screened in porch to our deck.
Northwood Nursery school was a wonderful preschool for all 3 of our children. Northside Elementary School was an equally excellent experience from the principal to all of the teachers. Central Dauphin High School (CD) prepared them well for college. It provides a safe welcoming environment for education, friendships and extracurricular activities for their areas of interest. (ice hockey, volleyball, band). In all the schools, our kids felt the faculty took an interest in them and did well by them.
The greater Harrisburg area is a small community where many people know each other and care about the community. It is an area of natural beauty with easy access to both rural and city amenities. We are especially grateful to be close to areas where we can walk or hike in mountains or along the river and streams. It was a great place to raise our children.
It's been 32 years since we built this house. We have great neighbors and will miss them. We raised our children here and created wonderful memories. We all loved how spacious this house is with 4 bedrooms, a big adjoining living room/ dining room for large holiday dinners, finished basement, home office, a big back yard (including a play house), and an inviting screened in porch with a calming shade tree view. We especially loved watching the white-tailed deer bring their newborn fawns to our yard in the spring. As they grow, the deer still come to rest in the shade of the yard periodically.
There are just so many reasons to love this home. We are certain you will too!
