About 7127 Plank Avenue

Welcome Home

It was exactly 5 years ago when the Sellers purchased this sweet home.  She quietly sat back on a serene tree-lined street, simple in character yet grand in life.  One thing stood out about her on that very day: her smiling potential.  Over the next few years meaningful updates were made, and today, 7127 Plank is beaming with pride.  Born in 1957, this elevated mid-century rancher is sleek + sophisticated yet preserves many of her original details, including a newer low-pitched roof, large dual-pane windows, open floor plan, a centrally positioned white-washed fireplace, wooden vaulted ceilings.  The kitchen is the most-recent update including new countertops, sink + stove with new mid-century lighting, with a breakfast bar that opens to the dining room.  The bathrooms are beaming with light and show off glittery reflections.  The front garden was transformed into a butterfly-friendly, drought tolerant garden, and a pergola was added out back. Neighbors can be found walking about, and often head to the hiking trails above.  It is common to see kids playing in the cul-de-sac, and during COVID the neighborhood came together to create a safe Halloween experience for all.  The next owners will be sure to find true joy and magical moments here for years to come.
