Sitting on a spacious lot in east Fayetteville, 5485 Appalachian Way has an inviting floor plan that is filled with refined details.
Offered by Melanie Gabel of Lindsey & Associates for $419,000, the 3,450-square-foot home has four bedrooms, three full baths, an office and multiple living spaces. Located in the Overton Park subdivision, it is in the Vandergriff Elementary School attendance zone.
Open house is 2-4 p.m. today.
Sidelights flank the front door, which stands under a huge arched window and opens into a grand two-story foyer. To one side lies an open formal dining room. On the other, French doors open into a study. Hardwood floors flow from
the foyer into the two spaces and continue straight ahead into the open living room. A gas-log fireplace with a sub- stantial hearth stands between built-ins as a focal point in the living area. A trio of windows provide natural light and views of the back deck that overlooks the privacy-fenced backyard.
A wide passageway allows the space to flow smoothly into the open kitchen, which is edged by a raised dining bar and capped by a breakfast nook. In addition to abundant cabinet space, the kitchen offers granite countertops, an under-mount sink, under- cabinet lighting and a stainless steel appliance package that in- cludes a double oven.
In the master suite, the bedroom stretches out under a tray ceiling that is accented with crown molding. A double vanity runs along one wall of the master bath toward an oversized tub that is nestled in a corner of the space under a pair of windows. The room also has a walk-in shower and a private water closet.
Back in the foyer, a staircase accented with wrought-iron rails extends to the upper level. A row of windows light an open sitting area that lies just off the upstairs landing. The level also houses two bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bath and a large bonus/media room.
The house also has a three-car attached garage, utility room with a sink, security system and central vacuum.
Private showings can be arranged by calling Melanie Gabel of Lindsey & Associates at (479) 422-4221.
