Description

This pristine and charming home, situated on a quiet street of the ever-popular Eagle Glen community, has enjoyed superb upgrades and maintenance! It has a hall entry, a very spacious living room, a formal dining room and a cook's delight of a kitchen. A recently installed new garden window ( you will find replacement windows throughout the home ) looks out over its double S/S sink to large and beautifully landscaped gardens. The kitchen boasts newer appliances and an island for seating and additional counter space. A floor to ceiling custom bank of cabinetry provides ample and incredibly convenient shelf and pantry space. The upgraded kitchen cabinetry and drawers are all soft-close. The kitchen leads to a comfy family room with a wood stove and access to paver patios and private fenced in gardens ( including trees, numerous beds and plantings, a retractable awning, exterior lighting and a waterfall/pond ). A true garden sanctuary! There is also a hallway off the family room that opens to a spacious updated half bath and a very spacious and well appointed main level laundry room. Four cheery bedrooms ( one now a craft center and one an office ) and a beautifully renovated full bath with soft close drawers and a double vanity complete the upper level. The lower level provides a few finished bonus rooms, perfect for exercise rooms and/or office space, and ample storage areas. The roof was installed in 2016, the HVAC in 2021 and the H/W heater in 2019, reflecting the pride of ownership that is evident throughout the home and grounds! Great curb appeal and the spacious rear gardens are completely fenced in by privacy wood fencing. Records for updates and improvements are available, by request, for review ( including within the past year, a new sump pump installation and a new cap and extended flashing on the stove's chimney ). 117 Layton Drive is very convenient to major shopping, including the Christiana Mall Complexes, and major highway arteries for easy access to points South, Wilmington, the Amtrak Station and Philadelphia Airport. Don't delay to book your tour!
