The Reasons Why We Love This Private Property In Prestigious River Run.

by Mayes Harris Team

#1. We love the location.

You know what they say about location, location, location.  It may be an overused term, but there are reasons why the location is the most important factor when buying a home.  You can remodel, tear-down or add-on to a home, but you cannot change the location.  This home is in the prestigious neighborhood of River Run. 

River Run is a neighborhood filled with beautiful custom homes.  There's a gorgeous country club with tennis and golf to meet your recreational desires and also, several pools are located throughout the neighborhood.  

#2. The Full Brick Exterior.

Owning a home with a full brick exterior has many pluses. It increases the value of the home.  The curb appeal is top of the line.  The maintenance is easier and you don't have to worry about painting.

#3. Master On The Main Floor.

Having a master on the main floor is advantageous because it gives one the option of "aging in place." That means the builder has thought beyond today and has made the home desirable for the many stages of life.

#4. Open Floor Plan.

An open floor plan is desirable for the majority of homeowners because of its encouragement of family and friend gatherings.  This particular home is an entertainer's dream.  Holidays, birthday, and special events will be eagerly hosted in this home.

#5. Four Bedrooms Allow Several Options.

There is a fourth bedroom on the second floor which could be used as an office, play room, craft room or getaway for mom and/or dad.  This extra space invites options according to lifestyles.  You are not limited by anything in this home, except by your imagination.   

#5. COMPLETE Kitchen Renovation In 2009.

One of the most expensive renovations and most important is the kitchen renovation and it's been completely done for you.  The attention to detail and the finishes are all top of the line.  A huge island and large pantry have been included. You will not be disappointed. 

I'm sure we could go on and on about this home, but you get the idea.  This is a home that will not be on the market long. Contact us today to schedule a viewing. If you'd like to view the virtual tour then please do so by all means.
