Peaceful Upscale Living ~ Forest Glen Home ~ Under $300K!

The Forest Glen community of Salisbury, North Carolina has all the amenities of an upscale gated community, without (a) the gates, and (b) the prohibitive price tag!

The streets of Forest Glen take you through the impressive stone entryway, past the community center with gorgeous swimming pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, and rose garden, and gracefully wind intricately more deeply into the neighborhood through pristine landscapes and pedestrian level lighting. Many of the homes here are built on somewhat a grand scale ~ but don’t let this intimidate you!

Hidden in a private, wooded landscape, surrounded by mature shade trees…114 Glenview Drive West, one of the earlier homes built in this quiet upscale neighborhood, has all the features of the modern ‘McMansion’ without the over-scaled architecture and matching price tag. This modest home in Forest Glen has features worthy of a closer look ~ and at under $300K ~ you'll be astounded!

Don’t let outward appearances fool you! While 114 Glenview Drive West at first glance looks like it could be smaller than some of the neighboring homes, once inside this solid brick home, you’ll understand the space and great design that over 2600 square feet can give you.

This house almost whispers with the lush, thick, cream-coloured wall-to-wall carpeting throughout the 18 x 15 living room, with gas log fireplace, dining room with built-in recessed shelves, and up the stairs to the home’s two 12 x 14 upper bedrooms.

Architectural details, such as crown moldings and arched built-in shelves and nooks for displaying works of art can be found throughout the home.

The vast kitchen~breakfast room area will be one of your favorite rooms in the home. Enter the kitchen through French doors at the living room, or from nearly anywhere else along the first floor of the home.

Stretching nearly 30 feet along the rear of the home, this fabulous, bright white, entertainment kitchen has tons of cabinet and counter space, and a huge work island at its center. The warm hues of the hardwood floors, in pristine condition, set off the gleaming white of the cabinetry.



The kitchen area spills over to the breakfast room ~ which connects to a beautiful sunroom that acts as a bridge to the Master Suite, and doubles as a peaceful and unique sitting room for the Master Suite with its five arched custom 8-over-8 paned windows overlooking back yard vistas.


Double French doors take you from the kitchen to the wonderfully private sun deck overlooks the park-like back yard setting, complete with landscaping and mature trees and wooded perimeter. The back yard slopes gracefully downhill, providing loads of texture and privacy, and creating a walk-out basement area.



114 W. Glenview provides you with plenty of storage room in both the attic space and non-finished basement, as well as in the over-sized double attached garage with workroom.

Call Salisbury Realtor® Greg Rapp at 704.213.6846 to take a walk up the deep drive ~ up the curved brick walk past evergreen landscaping with in-ground irrigation systems, to 114 W. Glenview Drive, and see first-hand what having all the amenities of a private upscale community, without the prohibitive price can be about. 114 W. Glenview is in perfect, move-in condition, just waiting for your whispered footsteps to make it your next home!
