What Can You Buy in Braemar for Under $350,000?

What can a Buyer expect to get for under $350,000 in Bristow’s community of Braemar?  Well, a quick MLS (Mulitple Listing Search) of the neighborhood reveals a few things. 

If you wanted to go really far below $350,000, you will find townhouses.  Townhouses without garages sell in the price ranges of $210,000-$250,000.  Of course, if you prefer a two car garage, you can always buy a piggy back townhouse around $230,000-$250,000.  That means you’ll have no backyard and if you’re an interior unit, only have windows on the front of your home.

But what about a single family home?  Can you get one in Braemar for under $350,000?  Sure!  You’ve got a few options there too.  In the $280,000 range you can have a smaller single family home (known as a Carriage home) without a garage. 

Still need that garage?  Try this on for size.  A Courtyard home with 3,260 finished square feet.  It’s got a two car attached, front load garage and BIG bedrooms.  It’s located at 10033 Pentland Hills Drive and is priced at $327,500.  The Master Suite is 20 ft. x 13 ft and that doesn’t include the luxury bathroom or walk-in closets.  The next largest room is 16 ft x12 ft.  The smallest bedroom is 11 ft. x 10 ft.  There’s another full bathroom up here too.  And did I mention the laundry room is on the bedroom level?

The main level floor plan is contemporary with the granite counters in the kitchen overlooking the family room and it’s gas fireplace.  There’s even table space for a breakfast area.  You’ll also enjoy the hardwood floors in the kitchen.  And just off the family room is the first of two composite decks.  Formal living and dining rooms, at an angle to one another, add to the contemporary feel of the home. 

Basement is mostly finished with a large recreation area that has a walk out exit to the brick paver walkway that walks you around the lower level composite deck.  The second deck above, makes this one covered and great for outdoor enjoyment on a sunny, hot day.  There’s even a full bathroom in the basement.

So let’s see….you can get three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a two car attached garage, two composite decks, kitchen with hardwood floors and granite counters, and a finished basement for only $327,5000.  And that’s not a Short Sale either.  The owners can give you an answer within 24 hours as to whether or not your offer is acceptable.

Along with all the amenities of Braemar, you will enjoy having basic cable and internet included as part of your HOA dues.  The only thing you are giving up is a large yard, but that just means more maintenance in the long run.  So what are you really losing?
