Just Listed: Five Bedroom Single Family Home in Braemar for $499,000
When it comes to Yardley floor plan, I’ve listed and sold my fair share since becoming a Braemar Real Estate Agent in 2005. Seems they offer the perfect amount of space for a single family home. Not too big, not too small. They fit like a glove.
This Yardley at 9996 Broadsword Drive is my favorite one to date and it just hit the market priced at $499,000. These sellers did every bit of listing preparation I suggested, including a fresh coat of neutral paint throughout and new carpet. The formal living and dining rooms, as well as the foyer, powder room and main level hallways are done in a very durable laminate hardwood. It’s all the beauty of hardwood floors, but holds up much better to every day life.
The sellers, original owners, also opted to have the box bay window in the formal living room, which adds some architectural interest. And while traditional colonials have their formals rooms right across from one another, the Yardley offsets them. The dining room is a little further back from the foyer than the living room. Still, the location of the dining room is perfect as it passes through to the kitchen, making formal entertaining easy.
While we are on the subject of the kitchen, it is open to a breakfast nook, and beyond a knee wall, open to the family room as well. All of these rooms were extended at the time of construction. This gives the kitchen an island and plenty of room for the cook to maneuver. With granite counters, light cabinets, tile backsplash and ceramic tile flooring it aesthetically pleasing. The gas cook top, double wall ovens, microwave and counter space make it a cook’s dream.
Everyday meals are likely to be enjoyed in the breakfast nook, positioned between the kitchen and family room.
The family room has built-in bookcases, palladian windows and opens to the screened porch. In the colder months, you’ll love the gas fireplace. And this room being carpeted adds to warmth of the space.
Upstairs is where you find the master suite, three secondary bedrooms and the laundry room. The master suite doesn’t disappoint with two walk-in closets, complete with organizers, and attached full bathroom with dual sinks/vanity and separate tub and shower.
The remaining three bedrooms are very good sized, but the fourth bedroom is especially expansive. All three share the second full bathroom with hall access.
A fully finished basement gives you plenty of recreation space, complete with surround sound and wet bar, a fifth bedroom and third full bathroom. And unlike some of the single family homes currently on the market in Braemar, it has a walk-up basement exit.
If you aren’t sold on this Yardley in Braemar yet, I’ve saved what I think is the best for last–the outdoor spaces. A screened porch, open air composite deck (complete with gas grill with permanent natural gas line coming from the house) sit atop a well manicured and fully fenced yard. The fence is also virtually maintenance free being made of vinyl.
This home is a suburban dream home, located in the Patriot High School district and in the amenity filled community of Braemar. Homes like this don’t last long when they go on the market. Call for your tour today.
