Why We Love It
1. The Finished Basement. The finished lower level adds about another 244 square feet to your living space... bringing you to approximately 1,750! That's a lot of room for this price range. And with just a little more material, you can still add to that total because there is an area in the back corner of the basement that was destined to become an office... but never quite got there. Add some flooring and a couple finishing touches and you'll be ready to work from home. This basement is perfect for the extra TV, a few game consoles, a Little Tikes Trampoline, or crafting center. And did you see that "framed glass" in one of the walls? That's a built-in aquarium - ready for Nemo and Dory - that's accessible from the laundry area.
2. The Open First Floor. Let's face it, the days of walled-off living rooms, dining rooms, etc are probably behind us. Today's homeowners tend to gravitate to an open concept lifestyle and this first floor caters to them. A very nice laminate floor ties the living room and dining room together into one large space; while your furniture placement will create the visual boundaries of each area. The room also received an upgrade in lighting with a new ceiling fan and chandelier. Your kitchen is still largely open to the dining and living area but is enclosed just enough to cut down on some of the noise created while preparing meals.
3. The Four Bedrooms. Whether they need all four bedrooms on a nightly basis, have frequent overnight guests, or just like to have an upstairs office or playroom, we find that buyer demand for four bedroom homes far exceeds the preference for three. Homeowners tend to look ahead or prepare for the worst and having that extra bedroom for the "just in case" seems to be pretty high on the list. And the bedroom you probably care the most about... your owner's suite? It won't disappoint. A vaulted ceiling, decorative ledge, your own bathroom, and a walk-in closet with its own window to let in some natural light. Don't underestimate that closet window. Have you ever worn two different shoes to work because it was dark when you grabbed them from the closet? No? Oh... me neither then.
What You Need To Know
This Southfield Village home was built in 1998 with 4 bedrooms, 2½ baths, a 2 car garage, and 1,506 square feet. The finished portion of the basement brings the available living space to a total of 1,750 square feet. This 2-story provides an excellent opportunity to move into a home with more usable living space than the price range typically affords.
First Floor: When you enter the home, you have a staircase to your left, a half bath directly ahead, and your living room / dining room combo to the right.
The floors in the living area have been upgraded to a very attractive laminate and when combined with the bronze finish of the updated ceiling fan and chandelier, it creates a warm feeling... even as a currently empty space. Add your furniture and personal decor to this ready-to-go blank canvas and you'll be ready to binge on some Netflix before you know it.
Take note of the two large windows on the front and the sliding glass door on the back. Be it morning or evening, natural light shouldn't be a problem.
Your kitchen sits around the corner with a gas range, built-in microwave, and a center island that's perfect for both food prep and display.
Second Floor: Up a flight of stairs is where you'll find all four bedrooms and both full bathrooms... including your owner's suite. All of the bedrooms feature adequate space to place beds, dressers, desks, or trunks and the closets in three of them are at least double in size.
You have a shower all to your own in the owner's suite and your housemates or guests can all share the other, centrally located bathroom.
Basement: Entrance to your basement is located off the kitchen. One large room is already finished and ready to serve as a second living space for you. The great thing about finished basements is the flexibility to serve whatever purpose you need it for. You're in complete control here.
Adjacent to your finished area is another "mostly-finished" room. The drywall and lighting is already installed... you just need to finish it up and add a little flooring. The space was initially going to become a home office but there is obviously some flexibility to meet your needs.
The next room adjacent to here is your laundry room and storage area (there is also some storage space under the steps). This room is also where you'll have easy access to sprinkle a little fish food into the built-in aquarium. Custom touches like this are what really set a living apart from everyone else... but if it's not exactly your cup of tea, it would be a fairly easy change to make.
Exterior: A large deck sits outside the dining room's sliding glass doors... making it easy to transition dinner time to cookout time. Barbecue season is just around the corner so get ready to fire up that grill and set out the patio furniture. While your hungry guests are waiting, they'll have tons of room for cornhole, freeze tag, or whatever game tickles their fancy because there is plenty of open space behind your home.
