You’ll love this recently updated, warm and inviting home with 3000 square feet of living space on a quiet cul-de-sac in the desirable, wooded Norman Downes neighborhood — a swim/tennis/lake community just minutes from downtown Duluth! -------------
The new 15-light front door welcomes you, brightens the foyer, and sets the stage for the house! Looking straight ahead, a large picture window in the breakfast room will draw you in, flooding the space with light and revealing a huge back yard with new deck, custom stacked-stone wall, and fire-pit area – ready for outdoor entertaining. To the left of the foyer is a large living room which opens to the dining room, and to the right is a comfortable gathering room with fireplace. The gathering and breakfast rooms both connect to the vaulted 3-season sunroom. Everything on the main floor has been freshly painted for you, including the delightful powder room! -----------
Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The main bedroom is huge, with 2 closets and a fully renovated en suite bathroom with dual vanity and built-in power and USB outlets. The 4th bedroom was recently updated with LVP flooring and is perfect for a home office. Downstairs in the finished basement is a large sound-proofed media room/play room/study (currently used as a 5th bedroom) and a full bath. --------------
You’ll also appreciate that the house has dual-pane windows throughout for energy savings, and that the HVAC systems, hot water heater and roof have all been replaced within the last 3-5 years. Bonus: HVAC maintenance plan through early 2028 will transfer to new owner — includes two free checkups per year at the start of summer and winter seasons. ----------------
This move-in ready house has a large, park-like, fully-fenced back yard and a long, level driveway for basketball or bike riding. Norman Downes is a swim/tennis/lake community across the road from Bunten Park, which includes a 3600 square foot playground, playing fields, and biking/walking trails. In this community, you’ll want your bikes, tennis racquets, kayaks, and walking (or running) shoes. Enjoy the small town feel of rejuvenated downtown Duluth, just around the corner with a brand-new library, plus shops, restaurants, a splash fountain, and amphitheater for concerts and festivals!
