Lou Baldwin--Carrying the Torch for NC Realtor Association

Great article in today's edition of Triad Business regarding Lou Baldwin, the upcoming President of the North Carolina Association of Realtors.  Lou and I have served many years together on various committees and projects both with the Winston-Salem Association of Realtors, Realtors for Burr and others.  He is definitely an asset to any organization he is a part of and continues to reach a "hand back" to help those around him to be involved.  Enjoy!

It's Just One of Those...

I see a lot of, homes.  It goes with the territory.  We tell clients everyday that no home is perfect but a few do come awfully close.  Take for example my newest listing at 130 Stanley Farm Road in Kernersville.  Now it's a little out of my price range, but if I were looking for great value in the heart of the Triad--this is it!

Priced competitively at $750,000 and situated on 2.53 acres, this home speaks to the owner that pays attention to every detail and knows what it's like to live the "good life".  Elegant but not ostentatious, practical but not "simple" this home embodies what Southern living should be.

At first glance, it's hard not to notice the meticulously manicured lawn, edged beds and mature growth trees that surround the property.  This level lot sits off of a side road outside of one of Kernersville's most popular subdivisions and is not encumbered by an HOA or restrictive covenants.

Enter the main foyer and you are immediately stunned by the gently curving staircase, soaring ceilings and the wide, custom trim.  From the music room with it's palladium window to the arched framing of the great room you still feel as if you can come in and actually relax.  Nothing stuffy or presumptuous here.  The main level master allows for a majority of main level living if you so choose.  Central vacuum, granite counters, hardwoods, custom cabinetry, gracious windows, large pantry, main level laundry with sink, and all of the other high-end "basics" you would expect.  Then prepare for the unexpected such as TONS of walk-in attic storage, exterior hot water access, back-access stairs to game/bonus room, two large formed stone, gas-log fireplaces and an entire in law/teen suite in the full-finished basement.  Four garage spaces in the main house, three on the main level and one basement garage.  There  is also a detached storage building with one garage and a workshop area, complete with cooling, electricity and cable!  Just beside of this building and tucked into the woods is  your very own golf hole!

Custom built by one of Kernersville's most reputable builders you can tell that this home was built with family and friends in mind!  Give me a call, I would love to show you this Southern charmer if you are looking in this price range.  Otherwise check out the link to view additional photos.  Please feel free to give feedback as to how we can make this home show it's true charm in our marketing.
