Open House 🏠

No reservation needed! Join us on Sunday, 9/24, 1-2pm.

This is the kind of property that only exists in storybooks...until now! From the red brick exterior to the picturesque drive, 2072 Bayberry Lane immediately gives off the kind of overwhelming nostalgic vibes that can effortlessly turn a house into a HOME. Imagine lazy weekend mornings spent sipping coffee around the heated, in-ground pool, surrounded by the view of your gorgeous & private backyard. When you need a refill, you're in luck as a warm, inviting kitchen (with an incredible pantry) is just steps away! You'll enjoy the  walk-out basement which offers (you guessed it!) MORE entertaining space, a play/media space, an additional bedroom and full bathroom, and plenty of storage. At the end of the day, retire to your owner's suite where stepping inside your ensuite bathroom will feel like a trip to the spa. From the walk-in shower to the dual vanities to the show-stopping marble finishes, you won't believe your eyes! And don't forget about the newer roof, HVAC, tankless water heater and pool heater.  Ideally located in Lassing Green (no HOA fees), walking distance to Ryle High and minutes from Union Promenade. When can you move in?
