---- — Rural and private, yet seconds away from route 125 shopping in Plaistow, this Karl’s Circle condex is the perfect place to unpack and call home. Set back from a freshly paved new street at the end of a cul-de-sac, this newly constructed cape style townhouse has everything you have been looking for in a home. Built on over two acres in a country setting, it offers residents the opportunity to enjoy their very own outdoor space while not having to worry about the upkeep of the interior of a larger sized single family home.

At this time of year, the trees that outline the property are bursting with color and the grass is lush. A freshly paved walkway leads to a farmer’s style porch where you can enjoy sipping your morning coffee, even on a rainy day. There is also an automatic-door two-car garage with a keyless entry pad. Upon entering a lovely painted front door with an oval glass inlay, you are greeted with gleaming hardwood floors leading into the living room. Here, there is a lovely cornered gas fireplace surrounded by crisp white woodwork and a granite mantle.

The open-concept living room leads to the dining area and kitchen. The kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets, granite countertops, recessed lighting and tile floors. The dining area has a beautiful iron chandelier, hardwood floors and sliders to an oversized 32 foot deck. Here, gorgeous views of the back yard can be enjoyed from a cleverly added built-in bench. Another unique quality of the deck is that it is totally separate from the next door neighbor’s deck which allows for your own space for entertaining and outdoor furnishings.

There is another set of sliding doors that lead into the first floor master suite. The master suite offers a bathroom with tile floors, double sinks and a large walk-in closet. The bedroom has plush wall to wall carpet. Just off the master suite is a tiled hallway with a closet set up for a stackable washer/dryer. There is also another hallway leading to the garage with a large coat closet. A half bathroom also located off this hallway.

On the second level there are two generous sized bedrooms in addition to two extra unfinished rooms for attic/storage or future office. There is also another full bathroom. The two bedrooms have wall to wall carpeting and provide a picturesque view of the back yard through the windows.

An added feature to this home is the huge unfinished basement area. It provides the perfect space to add a family room. It has sliding doors that lead out to a patio and the backyard. Here, there is plenty of space to enjoy outdoor activities. You can even take a hike through the woods, leading to limited water frontage on Little River.
