901 Rigel Street

Welcome to 901 Rigel Street! This truly unique single-story 3-bedroom home comes complete with a separate 1-bedroom guest apartment with a shared courtyard. This is a fabulous location in the Sunfield community, just down the street from FHS!
The home is located on a sprawling 0.45-acre corner lot dotted with mature trees and established landscaping. You'll enjoy a quiet cul-de-sac street, a double-wide driveway leading back to the two-car attached garage, & a great location with quick access to all parts of town.
Rock-lined landscape beds line the paved pathway from the double-wide driveway to the gated courtyard of this one-of-a-kind home with a creamy brick elevation, double-paned windows, a post-tension foundation, and a roof that was replaced in 2008.
A glimpse into the gated courtyard highlights the complex-style living arrangement that would be perfect for an aging parent or a young adult to have independence, while still living under the same roof. The double doors lead into the dining area and the door on the far left leads to the 1-bedroom apartment.
A painted wood front door with leaded glass detailing opens from the gated courtyard into an inviting foyer where you'll notice recent interior paint with oversized 9-inch baseboards, recessed lighting, and easy maintenance tile flooring.
Two steps lead down from the foyer into this sunken living room with plush carpet that was replaced in 2021, a tile border, designer paint, and an impressive triple-trayed ceiling with a lighted ceiling fan, recessed lighting, and built-in speakers.
An alternate view of the family room highlights the gas log fireplace with a charming brick surround, custom-built cabinetry above and on either side of the fireplace, and a trio of windows with 2-inch blinds and street-facing views.
Continue straight ahead from the foyer into an impressively sized dining area that is open to the adjoining kitchen. The room features a unique oval rotunda ceiling with crown molding, a 6-light chandelier, and a wall of custom built-in cabinetry.
At the opposite end of the dining room, a pair of full-panel glass doors open out into the interior courtyard of the home. For the current owners, these doors are utilized most often for daily coming and going.
The kitchen has been recently renovated to include sleek granite countertops with bartop seating space, ample white cabinetry with under cabinet task lighting, a lovely light tile backsplash, and on-trend sliding barn doors to the pantry and island shelving.
The cook of the family is sure to appreciate the updated stainless appliances that include a smooth glass cooktop with a modern vent hood, a new Samsung oven, a space for a microwave, a concealed control dishwasher, and a deep single basin sink with a gooseneck faucet.
A few other noteworthy features in this kitchen include pull-out pots & pans racks beneath the cooktop, space to add a double oven, an extra roomy pantry, and a coffee bar station as well as a built-in beverage fridge.
A half bathroom is conveniently located near the garage entrance of the home. Here, you'll find a black granite countertop with a rectangular basin sink white cabinetry, brushed nickel hardware, a framed mirror, stylish lighting, and tile floors.
In the center of the home, this space was once an atrium but has been fully enclosed with white painted siding, a carpeted floor, a skylight above, and windows that open into several of the home's rooms.
