The current owners of 2132 Sears Street love this home so much that they would pick it up and move it if they could. Since the laws of physics don't make that an easy task, you get to enjoy all the work that they've lovingly put into this home.

Completely renovated in 2013, all the major systems (HVAC, plumbing and electric) in the home are just five years old. In addition, the floors have recently been refinished, the whole house repainted, and the backyard redesigned to make it an entertainers dream.

As an added bonus, there's a special doggy door that's been installed, allowing your pup to go outside, do its business, and come back inside without anyone having to be home, and while also maintaining the security of the home.
