It's Not A Parade Home, But Is Pretty Enough To Be!!!
Buying a "new" home can be so exciting! If you are in the process from the beginning, you get to choose your lot, floor plan, elevation, colors, floors, counters, fixtures, etc. Going to the design center can be exciting with the shiny fixtures and fancy floors... until you realize how much all of the upgrades cost!!!! All of a sudden the fun can become extremely stressful! $$$$$$$$$$$$
Once you move into your new construction home, you realize on night one that you desperately need whole house blinds so your neighbors don't see absolutely everything you do!! If you didn't buy a refrigerator yet, then you are living out of a cooler. You also have to walk your dogs because there is no fence so you can't just let them out the back door. What all this means is that immediately after spending the money for closing, you have to come out of pocket with a lot more. YOU ARE LIKE AN ATM......
If all of the above sounds stressful to you, but you really want a "like new" home, then you absolutely have to go see 437 Mill Station Lane in Wendell Falls. It shows like a model home and is beautifully staged so you can visualize yourself making it your home. This home is so perfectly put together with elegant finishes (double crown throughout, accent wall in foyer) and practical upgrades. Its fresh blend of creative design and clean detail gives this home a one of a kind feel.
