Low Maintenance ~ Move-In Ready ~ 164 Autumn Chapel Road ~ FOR SALE!

While Realtor® Greg Rapp is known for marketing older and historic homes, an old house is not for everyone!  So, with that in mind, you new-house lovers will want to check out Greg's newest listing at 164 Autumn Chapel Road in Salisbury, North Carolina!

Built in 2004, this beautiful, traditional style home sits on a deep, half-acre yard. The reason many new-house lovers choose a newer home over a 100+ year old home guessed it...lower maintenance!  And this home is no exception! This 1900+ square-foot home is completely vinyl sided so you won't be taking a paint brush up any time soon! 

This handsomely shuttered, two-story home sports a wonderful front porch for rocking chairs and sweet tea! The landscaping has been meticulously maintained!

The home has a nicely laid-out kitchen with honey-pine cabinetry, and a bay-windowed breakfast nook overlooking the back yard and nice sun deck.  And while you'll love casual meals in this charming eat-in space...a spacious formal dining room awaits those special dining occasions!

The focal point of the large living room is the beautiful fireplace with traditional mantel piece ~ but a great cable-ready, built-in inset to house a wall-mounted flat screen TV...or to highlight a work of art!

The owners suite, in addition to a cathedral ceiling, features a huge walk in closet, and master bath outfitted with shower, dual sink vanity, and jetted tub.

You'll note a pretty palladian window on the upper floor as you look at the front of the home.  This charming little space makes a great computer room or tiny library/reading room!

Many of the rooms have fresh coats of paint, so 164 Autumn Chapel Road is move-in ready!  You'll love the tucked-away neighborhood that is 'out-of-town', and walking and bicycling friendly. . . but you'll also love how close this home is to Salisbury restaurants, theaters, and shopping!  A favorite place for fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as local butter, cheeses, and pepper bacon, is Father & Son Produce Market....and it's just a short drive away from this Miller-Chase subdivision.

Ready to see this 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath home at 164 Autumn Chapel Road for yourself?

Over an Acre And in City Limits? YES!!

It's not often you find large lots within city limits, but here is the opportunity to own a home with over an acre of yard...yet within the City of Salisbury NC limits so you'll be close to EVERYTHING, and can take advantage of city amenities such as leaf pick-up, AND the city's fiber-optic TV/phone/Internet service. (Salisbury is known as a 'Gig-City' - a 100% fiber optic network called Fibrant provides super-fast city-wide internet up to 10 gigabits per second (GBPS).)  Call Greg Rapp with Wallace Realty, (704) 213-6846, to snatch up this sweet property before someone else does!

Tucked away in the Oakland Heights subdivision that is nestled between E. Innes Street, the major southeast/west corridor through Salisbury, and Bringle Ferry Road, another main road out to the rolling hills of the outlying countryside, is this great little 2-story, 1966 square foot home!

Painted a warm apple green with a circular drive out front, this circa 1949 Post-War home at 1224 Park Avenue is one of the true charmers in the neighborhood. 1224 PARK AVENUE is a 4-bedroom/2-bath home with a wonderful open floor plan. 
The kitchen, dining room, and living room all have a southern exposure, and therefore stream bright sunshine and natural light all day long! The living room, with its deep rich-red wall finish, boasts gleaming wood floors, and a wonderful fireplace with dentil wood mantel and black tile surround, and a 'piano nook' surrounded by built-in shelving - perfect for today's flat screen TV's!
A very nice screened-in side porch just off the formal living room will be a most pleasant place to relax nearly all seasons here...with a little updating.

The sunny kitchen's white cabinets and window trim sparkle against ocean blue walls and a cheerful laminate gold-colored laminate floor (that may be original to this circa 1949 home ~ or may have gone in in the '60s). The present owners installed new counter tops along the cute little breakfast bar. 
You'll enjoy many a fine meal with family and friends in the formal dining room that looks out into the living room through a wide passage, again with that beautiful hardwood floor. The sense of space is really quite remarkable!
The owner's suite and 2nd bedroom on are located on the main floor. The second story houses a large 15' x 18' bedroom and a 15' x 19' recreation room! You'll find the fourth bedroom on the lower level with its own fireplace and exterior door.
And speaking of lower level, a spacious 28' x 25' workshop at 1224 Park Avenue is also in the unfinished portion of the basement, where you'll also find a new RainSoft water purifying system! 

Outside, the 2-car porte-cochere provides loads of space to shelter your vehicles from the elements, and keeps you dry as you load groceries from the car to through the kitchen side-door. The porte-cochere's east wall is actually a wonderful storage area, perfect for bicycles, toys, and garden tools! But if that isn't enough, there is a nice storage shed in the back yard!
And now that we've brought you to the back yard, we're sure you can picture yourself relaxing and entertaining on the wonderful slate patio ~ a great place to dry off and grab a snack after a dip in your above-ground pool!
And we did say this was a 1-acre+ yard! That's right! The approximate acreage at 1224 Park Avenue is 1.35, and yard backs up to a wooded area. Can you say privacy?

Come see what this wonderful Post-War home has to offer. There's been lots of fresh paint, and a new roof in approximately 2010, but may still want a little updates here and there. But because this is such a well-built, solid home, it will be well worth the effort and time.

Don't take our word for Greg Rapp at (704) 213-6846 to see this keeper for yourself!  Make 1224 Park Avenue, Salisbury NC your address in 2016!
