We just posted yesterday about what homebuyers are looking for according to the National Association of Realtors’ 2013 Homebuyer Survey. They want garages, fireplaces, backyards, and central air (which is a no-brainer for Texans!). Well, if you think you need to head north to the suburbs to get everything you want, just check out this great traditional in Walnut Gardens.
Situated north of Walnut Hill and east of Webb Chapel, this fantastic little enclave has tons of great homes that are being updated and loved, thanks to a great location and decent lot sizes. At 3409 Webb Garden Drive you get a completely updated home with vaulted ceilings, designer paint, gorgeous floors, and a two-car garage.
With four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and more than 2,400 square feet, you get all the size and amenities that the suburbs offer without having to drive all over creation to get to the office. This home is on a corner lot, too, which means more room to garden and spread out. It’s listed by Susan Melnick of Virginia Cook Realtors for $285,000.
The kitchen features granite counters and a travertine backsplash that complement the gorgeous cabinets. I love the cool pendant light fixtures above the breakfast bar. It’s a spacious kitchen, with a huge eat-in area next to a bay window. Of course, you’ll find stainless steel appliances and upgraded fixtures in the kitchen, too.
The master bedroom is a decent size at 16 x 14, but I’m more concerned about that door and where it leads. Is there a patio? Does it lead to the backyard? The listing info doesn’t tell you, and me, personally I would prefer to not have a door so darn close to my bed.
The master bath is completely updated with a granite vanity and stone-and-glass tile shower with a frameless glass surround. The fixures, which include a waterfall and directional shower, as well as double sinks, are all in oil-rubbed bronze. It’s pretty typical of what you see in updated masters today. Considering that there are two other full baths, I don’t think I will miss having a bathtub in the master.
The backyard, well, it’s perfect for a small playset for a couple of kids to run around. There’s a few areas for a flower bed if that’s more you’re speed, and I really like the brick half-wall that separates the rest of the yard from the tile patio.
So what do you think. Is this a good value?
