J Philip Real Estate, top selling Westchester RealtorWhat can you get in Ossining for $741,000? 

If you acted fast, you could have gotten a gorgeous 2002-built colonial in Waterview Estates. Here's what it had under the hood: a level half acre lot backing up to wilderness (General Electric-owned reservoir), exquisite landscaping, a lawn sprinkler system, a wrap around porch and a 2-car garage to start, and we havn't even walked inside. 

Inside: 3600 square feet of living space, 4500 if you included the walkout finished basement. 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, with a master suite to die for; a granite and stainless steel gourmet kitchen with an island; a family room with a classic wood burning fireplace and sliding doors to the rear deck; lots of architectural detail and contractor-owner upgrades; plenty of massive walk in closets; cathedral ceilings with skylights; gleaming hardwood floors on the main level, including the formal living rom and den; high end carpeting in all bedrooms upstairs and in the finished basement rec room - get the picture? 

Now for a little bragging:

We listed this home on May 13, 2011, got an accepted offer in June, went under contract in July, and closed on September 9. 91 days total start to finish, less than half that before an accepted offer. It is the highest price for a home in this subdivision since 2009. Selling a home this fast for 99% of asking doesn't happen by accident in this market. You have to know what you are doing, and you have to execute.

Is it against the law to use the exact same comment two day's in a row? It's a good life.

Congratulations on getting that home sold quickly.  It looks lovely and I'm sure both the buyers and sellers are very happy.

Would a lesser price buy a house without furniture in it?  I kind of have my own already.

Beautiful looking home, it is no wonder that it is sold so fast. The seller took the right advice and price it right, and the buyer is serious and educated.
