"Condominium Living with a Townhome Style"
I recently listed this condo in River Ridge and wanted to call it a town-home. It is a condo since it shares the common areas and was legally built as such. It is also a townhouse from an architectural stand point. So something could be both in terms of style and then its legal classification which center around the common areas and the common laws of condos.
Eric, why not call it "Condominium Living with a Townhome Style" and market it that way? Seems to me that would be good, no? Good luck and thanks again. kevincavanaughonline.com. The neat thing about Active Rain is that other agents will share their ideas with you as Kevin has, Thanks Kevin!
The other odd thing about the property is the amount of common area that was lelf by the developer. It may have been that the developer lived here for a long time after construction. The units have been here for over 25 years and land was mmore availiable in those days. The last sale in the units was 8 years ago and all the units are owned by men who have lived here for years. Just something to throw out!
About the Area- The Steamship Circlearea is one of the few areas where there are condos in River Ridge and Harahan. Its got a great location being less than a mile from the entrance of Earhart Extension which leads to downtown New Orleans in 20 minutes or about 12 miles.
The area has been developed for quite some time and is hidden in a treed area near some of the more expensive areas of River Ridge. The area still remains a quite and almost hidden area of small condo associations. The turnover is never too much as residents tend two stay long periods of time.
You can enjoy the tranquil setting of River Ridge next to all the conveniences that you will find in Elmwood Business Park and shopping area off Clearview Parkway as it leads to the Mississippi River Bridge.
The condo at 2856 Steamship lives more like a home than your normal condo. The condo is larger than most condos with 1850 square feet of living area. You add on the garage and the balcony and you have a total of almost 2200 square feet. Add this to the open floor plan and the great placement of windows in a tree lined lot and you get the feel of a home.
The condo is a townhouse style with the garage and office-wet bar-third bedroom that opens onto a large patio that opens into a large very quiet common area. There is a balcony off the kitchen and a stairway leading to the patio which is a great feature for cook outs and those with a green thumb.
Many of the updates were done in 2004. Kitchen was updated at that time with new counter tops, stove, dishwasher, vent-hood, light fixtures except for the cabinets. Condo was painted and got new carpeting at that time.
Bathroom was redone on first floor in 2008. Condo has been very well maintained by the current owners. The sellers are having an Inspection done this week to make sure everything is in tip top shape. A home warranty will also be offered for the first year for your protection.
