A two-story Colonial in the Catonsville subdivision of Cainewood recently sold for $495,000 after only two weeks and two days on the market. Just a few blocks west of the quaint village center, there was, as listing agent Missy Miller of Re/Max Advantage Realty said, "a revolving door of potential buyers" coming to look at it.
"The major selling point was the fact that it had a great, flowing floor plan, very open and spacious," Miller said. "The seller had completed an addition expanding the family room in the back of the house."
The upstairs part of the addition became a master bedroom, one of four bedrooms, measuring 20 feet by 15 feet with walk-in closets and a priate luxury bathroom.
On the main level, a den, dining room and kitchen flow into the family room, with French doors leading to the deck and backyard on the quarter-acre fenced-in property.
"This house was an unusual offering," Miller said. "The owners relied on our expertise to price the house appropriately so the demand would be there and it would sell in a timely fashion. We got very close to that price."
Amenities include a finished recreation room on the lower level, two gas fireplaces, Energy Star appliances, front-loading washer and dryer, automatic garage-door opener, all shades and blinds, and walk-in closets. Features include chair railings, crown molding, double vanities, wall-to-wall carpeting, three full baths and one powder room, and glass fireplace doors. For the owners' convenience, there is a second-floor laundry room and a first-floor mudroom.
