This cute ranch on Manchester's West Side, right near Piscataquog Park, the George Smith Ball Fields, and the municipal pool at Theodore Raco Park, is a great place to begin your homeownership journey.  It's a great alternative to condo living in a pleasant residential neighborhood, with a private back yard and space inside and out for friends and family to hang out.

Pull in the driveway and just past the side entrance you'll see the deck, right off the kitchen and ready for your grill or an al fresco dining table.

The deck leads down to the back yard, which is screened in back by a wooded, landlocked lot for privacy.  There's a little garden plot you can expand if you want to grow your own herbs and vegetables.

The rear and side yards offer space for running around, but not so much that mowing and raking will ruin your weekend.

The side door leads right into a compact and efficient kitchen that features a view of greenery, and the kitchen in turn opens to a cute dining nook that gets great southern light.

From there you flow nicely into a surprisingly large living room, and this and the rest of the house features hardwood floors.  As part of the cosmetic updates you'd want to refinish the floors, but you would be richly rewarded with the warm glow of oak underfoot.

Around the corner is the first bedroom...

...and down the hall is the master bedroom, with a double closet and nice windows (the windows throughout the house are newer).

The bathroom was updated with new vanity and lighting, granite counter, and ceramic plank flooring, so you won't need to tackle any updates there anytime soon.

The third bedroom includes a bay window and French doors out to the side yard, so it could serve as a home office, a reading or sewing room, or perhaps a bright space for your Peloton or yoga mat.

As you head down into the basement there's a finished area that includes a brick bar -- a space you can transform into a secret speakeasy or just a warm spot to relax or cheer on the Red Sox.

The rest of the basement affords plenty of space for storage, a workshop area, and laundry.

St. Marie Street dead ends on the east right at a trailhead for the Piscataquog River Park, so you can hike or bike at a moment's notice, and you have fairly easy access to I-293 north and south.

The home could use some cosmetic updates, which you can tackle on your own schedule, but the structure and system are fairly sound so you won't need to shell out big bucks for repairs right when you move in.  This is a home you can grow into and put your own stamp and style on.  Here's a place you can say to yourself, "Welcome home!"
