A MUST SEE! ONLY 15 MINUTES TO ALBANY AND TROY!
Back on the market due to buyers financing falling through!! This wonderful home is like no other, it has so much to offer and has been meticulously cared for! ALL inspections, appraisal and certification of the newer septic have been done and ALL passed with flying colors! Some of the many fine amenities include; a heated in ground pool, with beautiful stamped colored concrete patios and gazebo. Gorgeous mature landscaping and a 6 person hot tub in an Adirondack style room. During the summertime it is great for entertaining with the heated pool, gazebo and patios. In the winter time it is very comfy and cozy and a great place to be snowed in. We love sitting in the hot tub by the nice warm stove watching the snow come down out the sliding glass doors.
The home offers an Adirondack style hot tub room with a cathedral ceiling, living room, dining room, eat in kitchen, 1 bath and 2 bedrooms. But has plenty of room for a 3rd bedroom with minor changes and or an addition. Nestled on almost a half acre corner lot (.45) there is 1344 sq-ft of living space along with a 480 sq-ft 2 car garage with electric and work bench. A huge 3 story shed with a basement and attic that was originally built as a in-law cottage and offers a tremendous amount of storage. A paved main driveway (just sealed in June) and also has a second stone driveway large enough for a boat,/RV. It would make a great starter home or is perfect for empty nesters. And with one level it makes for easy access.
This home is also incredibly efficient, we rarely use the new oil furnace and the cost of heating fuel has only been $500 in 3 years! We primarily heat with wood in a pretty country blue soapstone stove, but could easily be changed to pellet. It is also wired for a generator system making it self maintaining for power outages. When hooked up to a generator it runs the entire house beautifully. The home is set up for Time Warner Cable Intelligent home security system with door sensors and motion detectors. There are Pella windows throughout along with 2 newer windows, newer entry doors with stained glass and a sliding glass door.
There are several beautiful pvc scalloped and chain link fenced yards that are perfect for large and small dogs. Our dogs absolutely love the grassy play area and there is a Pea stone yard that is very easy for clean up. The yard is stunning during the summertime and there is always something blooming with a wide variety of perennials and trees. It has mature lilacs, pink and white rhododendrons, cherry willow and mock orange blossom. Along with large mature Arborvitaes for privacy.

This home is in the wonderful Averill Park school district and the combined taxes for the year are very affordable at around $4,741. Old South Road is a up and coming neighborhood with high end properties at $300k to $400k which will only increase the value of this home. And as a country back road is also great for taking quiet evening walks and is a mature and friendly neighborhood. . But yet is still close to shopping, schools and is only 15 minutes to Albany and Troy.
We have absolutely enjoyed living here for the last 17 years and have put a great deal of pride and care in to this home. All of the certified inspections were passed with flying colors as it is a well cared for home and has a appraisal of $210k. . But as we soon become empty nesters ourselves we decided it was time to fulfill our life long dream and are building a log cabin as our retirement home. We hope to find someone who will enjoy and love this home as much as we have!
