I have listed a new property at 522 Elizabeth Ann DR in VICTORIA.
Wonderful starter home. Lots of pride of ownership here - new roof, deck, porch and shed. If you are looking for a private lot on a quiet cul-de-sac this is it. This 1233 ft modular home feels bigger than it looks with the kitchen, living, dining and family room located at one end of the house and two bedrooms, 2-4 piece bathrooms and the laundry at the other. There are lots of windows which allows for natural light and makes this home very bright. The back yard is surrounded by hedges and has a large 36x8 deck which is partially covered. The crawl space is bone dry and gives you lots of space for storage. The current owner has made every effort to make this home as picturesque as possible. Feel free to drive by and take a look.
