Situated near the end of a quiet culdesac in the highly sought after Ivy Drive neighborhood, sits this stunning modern rancher. As you walk up the private, oversized driveway with additional parking, you are greeted by a contemporary glass front door allowing light to flood the entrance. Upon entering the home you realize this is not your traditional rancher, it has been updated with a beautiful modern touch.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a beautiful built in office area for two with spacious desks flanked by large lacquered cabinets and glass overhead cabinets as well.

The open concept living and dining area is highlighted with a floor to ceiling slate gray Venetian style plaster fireplace with gas insert - fabulous heat source. The smooth wall finish throughout home adds to the subtle elegance  along with the dual paned Sierra Pacific windows with wood interior trim. The private gardens boasts luxury, low maintenance turf along with a patio area for dining and entertaining, a smooth finish cement retaining wall with lit stairs to the upper level terrace seating area. Mature trees and colorful wild flowers create an outdoor oasis equipped with side yard trampoline. 

The hall bathroom has been updated with slate tile flooring, modern white vanity and subway tile surround on the tub/shower combo. All bedrooms have been hardwired with Envi Heaters allowing each person to select their perfect temperature for sleep.
