I was excited to see this home since it is at an attractive price point that is rarely seen in Hiwan– in fact there hasn’t been a single family home sold in Hiwan under $500k since The summer of 2014!. In addition, I represented the buyer in the most recent sale on Olympia Circle last month.
The bottom line is that this home is in pretty decent condition considering the price. It has some attractive features including single-story living and a beautiful deck overlooking a well-maintained larger yard. It looked to me as though the maintenance had been kept up well. Unfortunately the bedroom layout is prohibitive for most people and defeats the ranch design by relocating the master bedroom into the basement. In fact, the “master” might not even technically be a bedroom in my opinion since it has the furnace closet door opening into that room. In addition one of the bedroom windows is below grade. But for those who have a goal of being in Hiwan under $500,000 this will do the trick and it has some attractive features like a giant stone wall/fireplace. One last thought that I found curious is that the front door is at the back of the house!
