As I sit and prepare to tell you about a very special home coming soon to the Braemar real estate market, I realize that I should enjoy every minute of this lazy Easter Sunday because as soon as 9477 Cromarty Court goes active on Friday for $584,000, my weekend will be frantic. When you love what you do, it is hard not to work, even on a holiday weekend. So today, consider me the Easter Bunny, dropping by with a great opportunity for buyers looking in the neighborhood.
Located at the end of Cromarty Court, this Braemar Maplewood Carriage home has so much to offer inside and out. Three bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the upper level make it much like what you would find in a townhouse. Formal living and dining rooms in the front of the home, however, are more in line with what you would find in a Braemar single family home.
Updates abound as you tour this home. Refinished hardwood floors are found throughout the main level. Plantation shutters in the front of the home and 3-D roller shades in the back give you privacy and style. The galley kitchen, typically cut off from view from the family room has been renovated to remove one cabinet which was converted to open shelving, giving that openness lacking in most Maplewoods. Quartz counter tops with their modern shimmer flow nicely to a live edge cherry breakfast bar. Even the pantry was re-imagined when the doors were removed and it was set up as a bar. (Easily undone if you prefer pantry storage.) There is even a stikwood accent wall here giving the feel of a cabin. I can’t wait to show you.
Hardwood stairs to the upper level continue the cabin feel with more finishes to evoke the feeling of a modern cabin. Engineered hardwood floors throughout the bedrooms and wood-like ceramic tile in the bathrooms work perfectly together. Faucens and fixtures have been replaced. No detail has been overlooked.
Head down to the basement, finished to offer a carpeted rec area with an updated full bathroom. This is also the level where you find the laundry room.
The updates inside this home could be done to any Maplewood. What makes this particular Maplewood unique is the lot. This home enjoys the only natural, unobstructed view of a neighborhood pond. Enjoy it while at the kitchen sink or enjoying a meal in the dining room. Spending time outside on the stamped concrete patio sure is more enjoyable when you have turtles sunning themselves on logs, the sounds of frogs and sighting of rabbits, fox and deer in the woods surrounding the pond.
An extensive private driveway gives you plenty of room for guest parking. In addition to your two car garage, there are three parking spaces at the end of the driveway that do not interfere with the garage. If you are hosting a gathering, the entire length of the driveway if there for your guests or maybe, a game of corn hole while you enjoy that amazing view.
There is a trail that goes around the lake less than ten steps from the property. It is so close you can see the home as you sit on the community bench.
It will be my pleasure to share professional photos of the interior when I have them on April 21st. Until then, if you think you may be interested in this home, don’t hesitate to set up your appointment to see it, or stop by the Open House on Saturday April 23rd (2022) from 1pm-3pm. This is a truly unique opportunity to own a water view in Braemar.
