This is the cottage that everyone covets. Set on a tiny knoll on at 2120 Arnold Drive, for years it was owned by Mrs. and she took loving care of it. In 2007, Johnny Willis purchased this home in an auction and the revitalization and transformation WAS ON! Johnny has retained this homes original charm yet updated and restored it to perfection.
The front yard is just gorgeous with it's lovely beds and vintage plants that were painstakingly moved from other parts of the yard. The cute cottage charm oozes from the sun porch and front stoop. There is a new roof, and all the trim has been freshly painted.
The home has the original beautiful hardwood floors, plaster walls and charming fireplace. There is an arch way to the original dining room and two bedrooms at the front of the house.
Inside the owner installed a beautiful kitchen with granite countertops and upgraded stainless appliances. This large kitchen opens to the family room with a fireplace and french doors out to the side patio. The master bedroom was updated with new hardwood floors and a small bath was turned into a walk in closet and a huge killer master bath was added to the back of the house. The bath features a huge shower with multiple shower heads, dual sinks and jetted tub!
The back yard is just stunning! Fully fenced, it is large... but really beautiful. Johnny hauled away three dumpsters of ivy to bring this yard back to it's original glory.
