Runnymede is the "Best Kept Secret in Baton Rouge'. Runnymede is ageless! 3 Bedrooms 2 Baths on one level. This lovely, perfectly updated and maintained town home sits among 100 year old oak trees in the most perfect setting the community has to offer. As you approach the entrance with it's "slate' stoop and leaded glass front door, you are greeted by the sound of a fountain and invited to sit and swing while nestled in the arms of the graceful trees. You are welcomed into a large living room with tranquil colors and gleaming hardwood floors that flow into the oversized dining room. The kitchen has newer appliances, ceramic flooring, countertops, 25 feet of countertop space, double ovens, refrigerator that remains and a breakfast bar. There are 9 foot ceilings, large walk-in closets in every bedroom, double paned windows, remaining custom drapes and blinds, built-in bookcases, crown moulding, surround sound and a fireplace for the cooler weather we are hoping for. Huge windows overlooking the well manicured lawn and private enclosed courtyard give you the feeling of your own personal kingdom. The oversized garage with automatic door opener has more than sufficient shelving and a storage room for all the "out of site' items. An architectural shingled roof less than 1 year old. The only 3 bedroom in this community! Throw away your lawnmower, enjoy the community clubhouse and pool, walk the grounds for exercise, join the residents for almost monthly community suppers or just spend time relaxing. Call for a private showing. Enjoy life for a change!
