Southern Charm Value in Wessex Square

Southern Charm Value in Wessex Square
July 9, 2015 Cassee Cunningham

wessex square home for sale realtor cassie cunninghamThis Cape Cod + Southern charm beauty in Wessex Square is priced below market value! Why? Well it’s certainly not because of the new roof, new HVAC, new windows, new hot water heater, stainless steel appliances and new bamboo flooring.  It’s also not priced below market value because of the Myers Park school district or brand new sidewalks and bike trails as part of the Rea Road improvement project just completed outside of this neighborhood.  It’s not even priced low because of its ample square footage, large lot, and large storage outbuilding.

No, it’s priced below market value because of wallpaper.  Yep, you read it right, wall paper.  As you walk in the front door you are greeted by a beautiful high foyer dressed in classic wall paper.  You will also find in lower half bath.  The sellers had the choice of removing the potentially off-putting wall paper or providing a more attractive price for buyers to make their own design choice.  These Savvy sellers chose the latter, and that’s good news for Savvy buyers.

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. The list price for this home is $261,900.  The price per square foot is under $120 Sq/ft.  For a well cared for and partially updated 4 bedroom 3 bath home with master on the main floor in the Myers Park school district, that is a spanking deal.

The wonderful thing about this location is, well, a lot.  The Wessex Square subdivision is off Rea Road, between Colony and Pineville Matthews Roads. As you come out of the neighborhood you now have a freshly paved and widened Rea Rd. This improvement also includes a bike path that will escort you down Colony Road to SouthPark and Myers Park high school. There are also wide new sidewalks that take you to the Harris Teeter shopping center less than a 1/2 mile away.  This neighborhood is also located really close to one of Charlotte’s two Trader Joe’s and the Arboretum. Another total bonus is the 4 Mile Creek Greenway, also within a mile of your front door.

If you are a buyer that wants to make some of your own cosmetic design choices and is looking for a great location that doesn’t break the budget, this is it!  Call me to schedule a showing!
