SOLD in Madison GA - brick ranch on 5 acres

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Lake Country 284620

One of the benefits of longevity in the business is helping clients work though the stages of life.

I met the sellers of this custom brick ranch home on 5 acres more than 10 years ago, when they were wrapping up a long time in the horse world - breeding, training, and showing horses. They were approaching retirement age, and it was time to sell the custom cape cod home on 17 acres with a beautiful 8 stall barn. 

Once I found the buyer for their last farm, I helped them buy this lovely ranch home - the 5 acres had just enough pasture space for their last retired mare to graze, and the unfinished basement had plenty of room for storage.

They really loved this home - but health concerns led them to choose a local assisted living facility. So once again I was called in to help them find a new owner.

And so it goes - most closing are where good people meet at the crossroads of their lives!

One of the new owners is a teacher, retiring at the end of this school year. They made plans to sell the custom home on a cul-de-dac close to her work, and enjoy country living. They are very excited to find this custom brick ranch home, just 10 minutes from downtown Madison.
