SPLURGE: SLEEK, CONTEMPORARY NEW BUILD WITH OVER 4,100 SQUARE FEET

The house at 7318 Morton St. is a stunning linear contemporary in the sought-after, up-and-coming Lovers Lane Heights, newly constructed. This home has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half baths, two living areas, and 4,186 square feet on two stories, built in 2017. 

The exterior is sleek with clean lines and IPE wood siding. Inside, white oak 5-inch hardwood floors greet and the open living-dining-kitchen areas offer floor-to-ceiling windows. The gorgeous kitchen features an oversized island with waterfall edges and five pendant lights, light-colored wood cabinets with flat fronts, and JennAir stainless steel appliances, including double ovens, built-in refrigerator-freezer, and commercial-grade gas cooktop. Downstairs, you’ll find two master suites, each with a gorgeous ensuite bathroom. There is a bonus room or guest quarters above garage can also be a fifth bedroom with separate entrance. In back, you’ll find an outdoor kitchen and swimming pool perfect for entertaining. 

This home was listed June 15 by Rachel Norris with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $1.35 million.

 

STEAL: BIRD STREETS HOUSE WITH EXTENSIVE REMODELING, PRICE REDUCTION

The “bird streets” are a desirable part of Lovers Lane Heights and our steal is at 7806 Robin Rd. It’s a lovely remodeled house with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, and 2,127 square feet on one story, built in 1947.

Extensive renovations have made this home move-in ready, from hardwood floors and ceramic tile, to new kitchen and baths. The floorplan has been opened up and the flow is great. The kitchen is brand new with gray Shaker-style cabinets, granite countertops, a contemporary glass tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. The master suite is beautiful and spacious with a master bath that was taken to the studs and how has a totally new look. Hardwoods extend to all bedrooms — no carpet in sight. The backyard is good sized with a new wood privacy fence and two-car garage. 

This home was listed April 9 by Graciela Navarro with Avangard Real Estate Services for $524,900, reduced to $499,900.
