Most of the major websites where we (Realtors) market our listings has one major flaw - the inability to hear the true story of a home, before a buyer enters the home. Here is that true story of 182 Silvermine Avenue, from my perspective.
On my first visit to this home, I immediately felt at home, given my childhood spent in Silvermine. This area maintains a history, and charm, that is unmatched in Norwalk. In this case, going down the driveway, to the home that is set far off the main road, you get an air of privacy that is unexpected elsewhere in town.
The large windows allow light, but you cannot see your neighbors, and they can't see you. Hardwood throughout the main level enables a level of cleanliness that is desired with today's buyers. Exit to the large deck from this living room, or journey to the half bath, and kitchen from this area.
The kitchen has some newer appliances, and has a size that creates great future potential, once the kitchen is done serving it's useful life - though many years away. The kitchen also has access to the deck, through a small laundry room. Luckily, the space in the basement can accommodate moving that laundry room, if desired in the future. This kitchen also accesses the 2 car garage, with high ceilings, and plenty of space. Otherwise, go right through to the dining room.
In my experience, every buyer is looking for one thing when it comes to the second level, and that is spacious bedrooms. 182 Silvermine Avenue does no disappoint. The hardwood floors throughout the second level, and the big bedrooms make these spaces perfect. The ample storage closets also add to the appeal. The common, full bathroom is in great condition, as is the bathroom in the master suite. There are sliders in the master that allow natural light, and fresh air, when necessary.
182 Silvermine has everything my buyers typically look for - it is a colonial, with a large family room, some potential in basement and ultimately in the kitchen, a large, flat yard, a deck, 4 large bedrooms upstairs, hardwood throughout, and so much more. This, all for $499,000, located in historic Silvermine, secluded, private, yet 5 minutes from the highway and Merritt.
I may be a salesperson by career, but I don't need to sell this one. I just need to urge the necessity for haste, if you are to buy this home.
