This stylish townhome, at 7533 Crosscreeks Drive in Bedford, just north of Toledo, has a lot to offer. And now, with government incentives for first-time homebuyers and repeat buyers, the low cost of this home makes it even more attractive.
Consider this: with just $3,465 down, you can move right in. When it comes time to do your taxes, claim that $8,000 first time buyer tax credit, and you've just come out $4,535 ahead. Not a first time buyer? Even if you can't claim a tax credit – assuming you're financing at 5% for 30 years, and paying about $144 each month in taxes and mortgage insurance – your monthly payment would be just $669 per month.
The home is as eye-catching as it is economical. The building is clad in various shades of vinyl siding, with a brick skirting which brings character and a unique look to these townhomes.
The covered front entry is flanked by carriage lights, and the front door has an etched glass oval window.
Inside, the entryway flooring looks like hardwood, but is really a new product made of recycled rubber. This floor holds up great in high traffic areas, with the same warmth and good looks of wood, without all the noise and maintenance.
The great room is quite spacious, with nine-foot ceilings and a ceiling fan. A large window allows great natural light into the room. The kitchen is open to the great room; the two are divided by a large peninsula snack bar, lit from above with stylish pendant lights.
This is a large kitchen, with ample room for a dinette table and chairs -- and you still have room for three or four cooks. The kitchen comes complete with stainless appliances by Frigidaire, including a side-by-side refrigerator with water/ice dispenser, an electric range, a built-in microwave, and a dishwasher. Maple cabinets with crown molding look gorgeous here, and are topped with high definition laminate countertops. Tucked away for managing the household budget is a desk area.
A sliding door offers abundant light, and leads to the large poured concrete patio. The lot extends past the patio, and may be fenced for pets or children.
Just off the kitchen and great room are a guest closet, a powder room, and a walk-in pantry. The same great flooring in the entryway is brought through to the kitchen and powder room.
A four foot wide staircase off the entry leads to the second floor. If needed, the builders can install a chairlift, free of charge, to make the second floor accessible to anyone who has difficulty with stairs.
On the second floor, the large bedroom at the front of the home features a cathedral ceiling with a ceiling fan. This room also has his and hers closets: one walk-in and one deep double closet.
A stackable washer and dryer – included in the price of the home – are conveniently located in a hall closet on this level. A second bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and a deep double closet.
The full bath blends great features and functions with a maple vanity, a ceramic sink and a high definition laminate countertop. A linen closet is conveniently located in this bath.
The builders, Mike Hojnacki and Brad Helm, have equipped the home with R-50 insulation in the attic. The furnace is rated 92+ efficient, and all the windows are equipped with low E glass. Your energy savings in this home is another reason to buy new -- you are getting the latest technology in energy efficiency.
