Bluffview Beauty Provides Cozy Retreat, But Close to Amenities

Share News:

BluffviewIt’s not hard to get excited about Bluffview — with its close proximity to great shopping and dining, and its pretty, tree-lined streets. And if that wasn’t enough, the neighborhood is close to great schools, from KB Polk Elementary and Sudie Williams Talented and Gifted Academy to Lamplighter and St. Monica’s.

Our Thursday Three Hundred this week comes courtesy a pitch on our Facebook group “Getting the Dirt.” Catherine Blevens with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International pitched us this three-bedroom, two-bath home at 8515 Glencrest Lane built in 1949 and priced right at $365,000. And it’s been on the market for less than a day.

While it may be a cozy 1,287 square feet, this Bluffview beauty has gotten updates and has a floor plan that makes wise use of every single square inch of space. And you can tell you’re getting something pretty special when even the view from the curb screams, “I’m cute and you need to come in and look around.”

“This home has it all — with great curb appeal, a functional floor-plan, and a convenient location,” Blevens told us.

Hardwoods run through the living room and all three spacious bedrooms, and the kitchen flooring is durable slate.

The kitchen is also open to the living room, dining room, and flex space, and has a center island with gas range. The dining area overlooks a beautifully landscaped backyard complete with koi pond and small, detached studio space (can you say “she shed?”).

The master bedroom boasts a beautiful private en-suite, and a hall bathroom is easily accessible by guests and both secondary bedrooms.

Too small for your needs? Blevens said it might be a good entry point for an investor, too.

“It would also be a great investment opportunity, as similar rentals go for $2,500 a month,” she said.
