Most of the time when people talk about the attributes of a home they want to buy they talk about things like an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances or an en-suite with walk in closet. Yes, all of that is lovely. As a realtor though, I’ve come to appreciate an often overlooked ‘extra’ that makes a home really great… good design. Good design helps you feel connected to a space. It’s that can’t-put-a-finger-on-it vibe you get that a house just ‘fits’ you.
The other more elusive characteristic to fully and quickly define is utility of space. It’s a hard concept to capture in marketing a home. People often get so set on a specific list of needs that their imaginations sometimes need a little wake up call. Of course, staging helps with that once potential buyer’s are inside.
Lucky for you, my latest listing has a marvelous spacious design that is full of whatever a buyer would need the generous amazing space for.
229 Boyce Road Is located in the Stonehaven neighborhood, it is on a lovely street across from the Boyce Rd. Park and Charlotte Preparatory School. Doesn’t the wooden door just welcome you?
Stonehaven (link to neighborhood site https://stonehavencharlotte.com/) bills itself as a “walk-to-school neighborhood where people wave, dog walkers stop to chat, and neighbors look out for one another.” Originally developed in the 1950s and 60s, the neighborhood is an easy commute to Uptown, within 5 minutes of Cotswold Shopping Center and 10 minutes of SouthPark Mall. Though with a backyard like this you might want to stay home and entertain.
I have written a lot about the changing needs of today’s buyers. For anyone who might want extra space for work, studio, or extended family this is it.
The current owners of this home added on in 2015 creating 3300 square feet of living! The addition included a luxurious master on the upper level.
When i say luxurious master, look at this!
The master has a whole side room for dressing or relaxing at the end of the day. I can imagine it filled with books and inspiration. How do you see it? (it’s ok if you want to make it your hiding room from the kids)
In staging this home, I had the original spaces of living and family rooms as front spaces that can be anything extra you would want them to be! Because they are located at the front of the house they are sequestered and perfectly perched to be what I staged as an art/music studio and private office.
Both spaces also can be totally closed off.
The addition also included an expansive great room on the lower level
It is not only spacious but was built with walls of windows and immediate and seamless access to outside.
I love homes where you can really let the outside in–everything just flows.
Floating from kitchen to dinning to living to large deck and patio outside without barrier.
This house is 2 homes in one and has versatile space for the right buyer.
The Boyce Rd. home is listed for 540k which is a steal at $163 Sq/ft.
This is a house that you have to see and experience to appreciate. And I will be more than happy to show it to you. Contact me now!
