The best value in WOOD ACRES in years. Located just a block to the magnificence of Wood Acres Park, this classic WOOD ACRES colonial features a wall down between kitchen and dining room, creating an open table space arrangement that leads to the Sun Room/porch conversion on the back of the home that overlooks a totally flat and gorgeous backyard. There is a first floor den as well. The home has upgraded double pane energy efficient windows (not a small thing, it might cost upward of $25,000 to do so today, perhaps more!).<br/><br/> The lower level is more finished space. There is a pleasing flagstone patio in the backyard as well as a cozy front deck off the kitchen in the front. Yes, it sits high upon the hilltop and the views and sunlight are quite wonderful! You can walk to Wood Acres Elementary in about five minutes too.<br/><br/> The average SOLD price of a Wood Acres home over the past 24 months is $1,292,000, this is an opportunity to join this legendary community. It's a short walk to Wood Acres Elementary from this home. There's a fabulous 4th of July Parade that has taken place each year since 1956. The Great Pumpkin comes to Wood Acres at Halloween and there are hundreds of trick or treaters!<br/><br/> These community events are organized by the very active Wood Acres Citizens Association. There are enforceable covenants that are unique to Wood Acres. You cannot knock down a home in Wood Acres, thus the streetscape you admire throughout the neighborhood will be the street scape you enjoy over the decades. Yes, you can add very large additions to your home, out of 400 Wood Acres houses, over 155 of them have substantial 2 or 3 story additions. But the community has a review process that insures that your addition doesn't negatively affect your neighbor. The quality of materials that are used and the building practices applied are carefully considered. Thus, as you drive the community you can clearly see the quality of the expanded homes. They remain in proportion with other homes too, which is viewed as a plus. Learn more by reviewing guidelines at woodacresinfo on Google. OPEN THURSDAY 4-5:30.
