Sweet Sunroom: 8245 Tulane

October 23, 2012 , In: Residential Properties , With: No Comments

Like most people, I have a standard knee-jerk response when I see a house that’s been on the market a long time: What’s wrong with it? Does the basement leak? Is there a landfill next door? Are the bedrooms tiny? Is the neighborhood awful? Or is it all just a matter of price?

In this case, I think maybe it’s price….and a privacy issue that could be solved with a few strategically placed evergreens. Because otherwise, this 1954 U.City ranch is really pretty awesome!

I’m nuts about the open floor plan and gorgeous hardwood floors, which run throughout the hall & bedrooms. I could also spend many happy evenings in this lovely sunroom, overlooking the wooded 1/3-acre yard….

And who doesn’t want a bat cave?! This discreet tuck-under garage connects straight to the kitchen.

There’s also this crazy fantastic bathroom: a vexing marriage of decades that’s both puzzling and enchanting! 50s pink + 80s gold? Yes, please!

Seriously, this place has a ton of character! You can’t beat the Mid-County location, and if you could negotiate a price that’s a little more in line with the surrounding area, this could really be a gem.

8245 Tulane has 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms in 1839 square feet. It’s listed for $289,o00 by Patrick Horrell, Keller Williams Realty. You can check out the virtual tour here.

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this unique vintage property, give me a call!
