This home in southeast Conway has an abundance of great features both inside and out, thanks to creative design options and a lot of updates.

Listed for sale by the real estate team of Bill and Janet Tobias, this lovely house at 441 Bernard Drive is on a large, level lot in a quiet cul-de-sac that is not only close to the shopping and restaurants in Conway Commons, but it has quick access to Interstate 40. With a park-like back yard and great updates throughout the inside, this home will provide a wonderful sanctuary for your entire family.

Constructed in a traditional, one-story design, the home has 2,234 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths. Hardwood floors combined with a terrific use of crown molding and neutral walls colors create a lovely open feeling throughout the main living spaces. Because of its open floor plan, the family room, kitchen and dining area are all in one combined living space. This type of layout allows for family togetherness and for great entertaining options.

Adding height to the family room is a cathedral ceiling with a natural wood beam running the length of the peak. A brick façade fireplace is a wonderful focal point in this room, and a great gathering place for cold winter days. The adjacent kitchen has granite countertops, a breakfast bar, custom wood cabinets and a separate pantry. Built-in, stainless appliances are also included.

For dining, this home offers a separate formal dining space with all the classic features your family will love. It features hardwood flooring, a custom chandelier and a mottled paint design on the walls. The focal point of the room is the three-section bay window area that overlooks the front yard.

Extra time was spent on the design of the master suite, which is stunning. The bedroom features a beautiful coffered ceiling design that provides wonderful charm to the room. Carpeted floors and extra space for a sitting area near the large windows are also featured, as is a huge walk-in closet. The master bath has granite countertops, along with a double vanity and tiled wet areas.

In the back yard, you will find mature trees that provide a great amount of shade over the multi-layer deck and covered patio. Also included is an above-ground pool and a hot tub. The deck includes a wonderful area for lawn chairs and dining tables under several ceiling fans – just think how nice this will be when the weather warms up!

• New roof approximately one year ago.

• Floored attic.
