February 2009: Eyecatchers

Don’t judge a book…

Location: Charlottesville
Price: $344,900
MLS#: 450920

Ladies and gentlemen, this one’s got character: Start at the front and you’d never guess that an attached greenhouse puts some BAM in the back. With three bedrooms, two baths, and a more than respectable 2,585 square feet, this demure Cape Cod might come across as the house-next-door, but those big glass panes, offering woodland views, show some serious potential.

Inner beauty

The exterior of this Cream Street building looks as if the top of the TransAmerica Building fell on its side. The interior space, however, more than makes up for the awkward structure. Big windows and hardwood floors make the space bright and warm. It’s a surprisingly open and inviting two-bedroom, two-bath condo. There are nice details, and good views of town.

A high end bargain?

Location: Fluvanna
Price: $595,000
MLS #: 455193

The description says priced to sell, and at about $132 per square foot you may feel like you’re cheating the seller. The home was built in 1999, but is beginning to look a bit outdated. It’s enormous, though, at 4,516 square feet, four bedrooms and four full baths. There is a finished basement where you can park your angsty teens, while you enjoy the master suite’s fireplace or jacuzzi. Outdoor amenities are killer too: 10 acres with woods, an in-ground pool, great porches, a gazebo, and even a pond stocked with fish!
