1208 South Great Blue Road - Taverner Ridge - Now under contract.
This gorgeous new construction home fits my client's needs perfectly. As a baby boomer, she is one of the many who are choosing to up-size, rather than downsize. When her husband died over a year ago, she decided to move to Clark County, WA to be near her adult children, and grandchildren, who live in Portland, Oregon. She is also an avid seamstress and her hobbies include quilt making.
The nearly 4,000 square foot home has a master on the main and three other bedrooms for visting family members. It also includes a large bonus room for her sewing needs. A four car garage can house her vehicles and storage items, and there is still room for guest parking. The nearly half acre lot has a fenced backyard for her young, and active, dog.
Another important criteria for this buyer is the location on a private greenbelt lot which backs up to the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge. During our tour we saw an abundance of birds including geese, eagles, osprey, and Great Blue heron, just to name a few. ( Wonder if that's how the street was named by the developers - Great Blue?)
The prestigious neighborhood of Estate homes has parks, walking trails, and strong CCRs to protect values. The little town Ridgefield is minutes away with small shops and eateries. Interstate-5 is also minutes away giving quick access to other services, or the airport and Portland, Oregon.
The home also has lovely distressed, wide plank wood floors which as my buyer says, "will age well with a dog and visiting grand kids." Travertine tile floors are in the mudroom, laundry rooms, and 4 bathrooms. The upstairs bonus room was upgraded to include tile floors as carpet is a big no-no for needles. ( Remember, this is the room the buyer will use for her sewing projects.)
Thanksgiving should be quite the event for the family this year. The huge dining room will easily seat the entire crew - and the gourmet kitchen has double ovens, a viking range, sub zero refrigerator, and double dishwashers. The home is also Energy Star Certified and will save my client money in water, electric, and heating and cooling bills.
It is such a joy to find the "right property" for this wonderful woman. She deserves all the best in life and this home will be the perfect spot for her to entertain visiting family and friends, and yet she has everything she needs on the main floor when she's flying solo.
