Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, and yes, dear readers, there are still new homes available for under $200,000.
Case in point: this week s featured home. Located at 5637 Breezy Porch Drive in the Mayberry Crossings development in Sylvania, this home has so much going for it.
First, there s the location. Mayberry has been developed as a traditional neighborhood development, meaning that the main focus of this neighborhood is about the people who live there enjoying the neighborhood they live in without having to go elsewhere. There are many different housing styles, walkways throughout the development, and activities within walking distance: shops, restaurants, professional offices, parks and much more. The homes that line the streets of Mayberry Crossings are all unique in their exterior, each one with a front porch and many with picket fencing.
The home has a cozy feel, especially with its wide front porch. It s a perfect place to sit on a summer evening and listen for the strains of the Johnny Knorr Orchestra at Centennial Terrace, located nearby.
The home is gray vinyl with black shutters and white trim. The white front porch railings are made of a composite material no maintenance required, except maybe to hose them down in the spring. Enter through the front door with sidelights to the great room and you ll see that this home has interior charm as well.
The great room is ideal for entertaining, with a large conversation area, space for dining, and easy access to the kitchen. Large windows at the front and side of the home offer an abundance of light.
The kitchen, which is open to the great room, features a long snack bar and acres of counter space. Vinyl flooring here looks like ceramic tile you ll want to touch it to be sure. The hickory cabinets have a beautiful grain, and crown molding sets them off perfectly. This kitchen comes equipped with a brand-new dishwasher, range and microwave.
Nearby is a spacious utility room that could easily double as a mudroom. Cabinets, matching those in the kitchen, are perfect for storing soaps, bleaches and your other magical laundry potions, and the utility sink is great for soaking out the spots. A door here leads to the two-car garage. Closets in the garage hide the water heater and furnace, making for more space in the home.
At the front of the home is a bedroom with a double, mirrored closet door. A ceiling fan overhead creates a nice breeze. This spacious room can be used as a bedroom or an office, or whatever your heart fancies. With its close proximity to the full hall bath, it would even make a fine guest room.
Down the hall, the master bedroom is also quite spacious, with a large walk-in closet near the entrance. The master bath boasts a vanity and makeup table with a cultured marble top. A large linen closet is located here.
A water closet and a step-in shower with two seats are behind a privacy door at the other end of the room.
A neighborhood association ensures that you can enjoy maintenance-free living. For a fee of $95 per month, snow removal, lawn care and trash pickup are taken care of for you.
HOJ Development, builders of Mayberry and the homes within it, emphasizes that they offer five floor plans and countless options. Builder Mike Hojnacki urges you to come and experience these delightful cottage-style homes, all at reasonable prices.
