LINCOLN – This single-owner home, built in 1997 and located on a private cul-de-sac, offers 5,000 square feet of living and entertaining.
“It is an extremely well-built home, and private,” Anastasia Kaufman, the listing agent, said. “It’s a beautiful home.”
The house sits on 1.43 acres and both the front and back yards are professionally landscaped. The backyard also connects into the woods, for added privacy. The home has a three-car garage and there are two entrances on the front of the house.
The home features a foyer at the main entrance with a staircase leading to the second level, featuring an open catwalk that it overlooks the foyer and family room.
On the main floor, you are welcomed into a sunken living room with a granite, wood-burning fireplace. Located between the office and living room is a butler’s pantry with a granite wet bar. The family room on this level features 25-foot ceilings and a gas fireplace.
“The kitchen has all high-end appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, built in,” Kaufman said. “They have a brand new, custom Kitchen Aid cook top and a Bosch Dishwasher.”
The countertops are granite and there are hardwood floors throughout, except in the bedrooms. The kitchen leads to the garage and in between is a foyer/mudroom with closets and a half bath.
Overall, there are six bathrooms, four full and two half. There are two half on the main level, three full on the second floor and one full on the lower level.
Upstairs the master suite is located on the entire left side of the house, front to back. It includes two walk-in closets and a master bath with granite double sinks, a Jacuzzi and private toilet.
There are three additional bedrooms on the second level, one with private, full bath. Currently, the other room on the second floor is being used as an office but can be a fifth bedroom or playroom, Kaufman said. The laundry room is also located on this level.
An interesting aspect about this house, according to Kaufman, is the lower walkout.
“It’s a fully-finished lower level that can be converted into an in-law,” she said. “The spacious finished walkout lower includes lots of room for entertaining with glass block and granite wet bar and a full bath.”
The lower level can also be used for entertaining, with the wet bar and Bosch fridge. This level opens out into the meticulously landscaped backyard.
Overall, there are 11 rooms in this house that was built by the current owners. It is listed at $759,900 by Anastasia Kaufman at Re/Max Town and Country.
“This house is an excellent bargain,” she said. “Everything is in pristine condition.”
Kaufman said that this house could fit a number of people or families. She said it works as a multi-generational house.

Many homeowners are unaware that the most common causes of house fires are cooking related. According to data from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), cooking fires cause 46% of house fires and 44% of household injuries.
You aren’t alone if you think those numbers are shockingly high. However, most of us are never taught cooking safety techniques. In this article, we’re going to give you some tips to protect you and your family from the most common and some lesser known causes of kitchen fires.
Cooking fire statistics
Knowing the most common causes of cooking fires is a great way to understand just how dangerous certain types of cooking really are. The NFPA reports that frying is the most dangerous type of cooking. Two-thirds of cooking fires were the result of the ignition of food and cooking materials.
In terms of equipment, the range or cooktop is the most dangerous part of the kitchen, causing over 60% of fires. However, much of the time the cause comes down to leaving your equipment unattended.
One of the most important things you can do to reduce the risk of house fires is to stay in the kitchen while you’re cooking. Unattended ranges, stovetops, and ovens can be particularly deadly since they can happen as a result of someone dozing off while watching television, or someone forgetting they left a burner on after they go to sleep.
A good way to monitor your cooking is to always use a timer, even if you don’t necessarily need one for the cooking that you’re doing. Also, be sure that your smoke detectors are working and that you have a functional fire extinguisher in your home. Make sure your family knows what to do if they encounter a fire.
Before you turn on your burners before frying, make sure there is nothing around your oven that can catch fire. A food container, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper towels, or curtains could all potentially catch fire if they come in close contact with a burner.
Clothing is also a leading cause of kitchen fires that turn fatal. Make sure sleeves and other pieces of clothing aren’t near any burners or open flames.
In case of fire
If you encounter a large cooking fire that is spreading throughout, the best thing to do is to immediately gather your family and get out of the house, avoiding the kitchen entirely. Call 9-1-1 as soon as you are safely outside and don’t re-enter the house under any circumstances.
For small grease fires, smother the fire with a lid and turn off the burner immediately.
Understanding cooking fires
Most fire requires oxygen to burn and spread. If there is a small fire in your kitchen, using a soaked towel or a pan lid to smother it will suffice.
However, grease fires work differently. Never put water on a grease fire, this can cause the fire to spread very quickly. Rather, use a lid to put out the fire if it is small enough to get near. You can also throw baking soda, or use a fire extinguisher on a small grease fire.
Ready to transform your home's interior from bland to fabulous? Ultimately, how a seller approaches home interior improvement projects is important. If a seller does everything possible to upgrade a house's interior, this individual could reap the benefits of a successful property selling experience.
Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you give your residence an interior makeover.
1. Analyze the Current Condition of Your Home
Although a home inspection generally is requested by a buyer after a seller accepts an offer to purchase a house, it may be helpful for a seller to complete an inspection before listing a residence. In fact, an inspection may enable a seller to analyze the current condition of his or her residence and prioritize home interior upgrades accordingly.
Many home inspectors are available in cities and towns across the United States. If you hire a top-notch home inspector, you can receive unprecedented insights into the condition of your house and map out your home interior improvement projects.
2. Remove Clutter
Let's face it – you've accumulated a vast array of personal items over the years. These items may have served you well, but they likely take up lots of space in your home. And if you're not careful, your personal items may make it difficult for you to show off the true size of your house to potential buyers.
If you have an abundance of clutter, there is no need to stress. You can always sell excess items online or at a yard sale, or you can donate these items to a local charity. Furthermore, if you have personal items you want to keep, you can rent a storage unit to hold these belongings until your residence sells.
3. Clean Each Room of Your Home
Maintaining a neat, tidy home is essential, particularly for an individual who wants to sell his or her residence as quickly as possible. If you perform regular cleaning tasks, you can keep your house looking great for the duration of the property selling journey.
Oftentimes, it helps to make a list of daily, weekly and monthly cleaning tasks. If you stick to a regular cleaning schedule, you can ensure each room of your home will dazzle at all times.
As you look for ways to upgrade your home's interior, you may want to hire a real estate agent too.
