About This Old House
1974 Mid-Century Modern / Contemporary home for sale: Four Levels, Sun-room, Multiple Decks, Two Wood Stoves, Spiral Stairs, Open Architecture, Over size two car garage. Wooded Community with lakes, swimming pools, tennis courts, hiking trails, lots of birds, natural landscaping.
Living here is like a mountain vacation home all year round. Some people have called it a \”tree house\”. There are lots of birds and nature to watch. Frequently in the spring there is a bird nest with babies growing from hatchlings to taking their first flight just a few feet from the front door.
The year round vacation continues with a variety of community amenities such as swimming pools, tennis courts, lakes, beaches and hiking/walking trails. You can follow the creek and come out at the new bridge which has a under pass for the trail to continue around the main body of the lake.
The Sunroom is a perfect place to view the scenery while enjoying a meal. Built with special glass that reflects most of the summer heat it is usable for three seasons. As the trees fill in, the houses across the valley disappear and the next door neighbors seem to take a few steps back. The covered deck provides an outside party space rain or shine.
The natural setting allows you to decide how much yard work you enjoy. Anything from low maintenance natural to highly landscaped is possible.
Moving inside, the open architecture and over multiple levels provides both private space and open light filled areas. Speaking of moving in, the house is easier than it first appears since three of the four living areas have outside doors.
Both wood stoves have glass fronts providing the visual experience of a fire place but the heating efficiency of a stove. The primary stove in the living room is capable of heating three levels.
The garage is substantially over size allowing room for two cars with space left over for a wood working shop.
Winter snow is very pretty in Balmoral. Being on the main neighborhood road, the private community plowing has always done an excellent job keeping the roads passable. With the underground power lines, power failures are very unlikely.
