Something Special in a Land of Bi-Levels

Are you a buyer who thinks that once you’ve seen one bi-level you’ve seen them all? 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThen you’d better check out this post.  It’s about a house on the outskirts of Scotchtown.

If there ever was a land of bi-levels Scotchtown would be it.

People driving around there sometimes get lost with block after block of bi-levels.   Most of the homes look pretty much the same.  Bi-levels are by far the dominant style of home in this largest neighborhood in the Town of Wallkill.

People love them.   They like the excellent and efficient use of space a bi-level gives them.

However some buyers want something different.   When they try to get the same amount of space in a different style home, say a colonial, the price is higher and they stick with the bi-level for value.   That’s why I want to tell you about:

This  Bi-Level that Has Something Special making it stand out in this land of bi-levels.

  • OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis home is on the outskirts of Scotchtown just around the corner from the main part of the Scotchtown Neighborhood.
  • Instead of having just a normal development size lot, this home has a much bigger one — 1.5 acres.
  • This much land gives you some breathing room.   You’ve got room for landscaping.  Perhaps a pool?
  • It’s scenic too.   Overlooking the Highland Lakes New York State Park with more than 3,000 undeveloped acres of woodland and lakes.

How many bi-levels do you know of that have dormer windows? OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADormer windows are something you usually only see on Cape Cod Style Homes but this one has mini-dormers.

The owners of this home added something that probably almost no other bi-level has.

6 Indian Trail AdditionIt is a special addition at the rear of the house.  This addition is not one of those out of a box fiberglass or vinyl add-on creations.  It is high quality wood frame construction by the same builders, Fini Brothers Construction, who originally built the house.    The price tag for the addition was $50,000, when it was constructed just following the completion of the house.

Special family room addition features:

  • a fireplace
  • large rear elliptical window
  • bay window
  • mini-dormer windows
  • hard-wood floors
  • sliding door walkout to a large deck
  • it adjoins the dining room and kitchen
  • has enclosed storage area underneath the addition

How is it going to make your life better?

It’s got to be the extra main floor living space as one of the biggest benefits.   Usually only the largest colonials have family rooms this size adjoining their dining area and kitchens.  This is the kind of space that will let the whole family be together on main floor of the house.   You can be cooking in the kitchen, someone can be enjoying the fireplace in the family room, someone in the living room watching the large screen television but all will able to see and interact with each other.   This will be great for entertaining too.    The family room opens onto a large deck letting you enjoy the scenic views.   Imagine the summer dining and barbecues.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPlus you’ll be the owners of this home with this special family room feature.

This home also does have all those features you like in a bi-level such as a fully finished lower area, 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths including a master bath and 2 car garage.   I’ve included a link below to the Multiple Listing Service Report with all the property details including the central air conditioning for you.

The condition of this home is very good.  It compares to new construction.   New construction won’t have the extra family room feature without you paying a much higher price than this home is selling for.

If you’re looking a home that will give you the feeling that you’ve gotten something special,  that stands out from other homes, that will give you more enjoyment because of its special layout of living space, this home may be it.

I invite you to schedule a showing to come and see it for yourself.    Look for those mini dormer windows on the addition and you’ll know you’ve found the right place.
