SOLD: An exceptional, upgraded three bedroom home in Raleigh’s Alyson Pond

Posted on 04/25/14 No Comments

Sometimes, a house has too much to love about it.

Maybe it’s the spacious, recently added sun porch inviting in natural light from all angles. Or, the stone encased fire pit; or the exceptional kitchen, with all its hardwood cabinetry, granite and stainless steel. This is 8501 Yucca Trail in Raleigh, and you won’t be able to name just one favorite place. The entire home is collection of great spaces.

Located in Alyson Pond, a shaded and desired North Raleigh subdivision, this 1,811 square foot, three-bedroom home is surrounded by an envy-provoking landscape that includes mature trees, dense flowering ground cover, and a deep, fenced lot. Inside and out, this home has been cared for. It’s offered at $249,900.

The open first floor sits on gleaming Australian Cypress hardwoods that span wall-to-wall, from the living room with space for a small office to the large, separate family room with gas fireplace. There’s also a formal dining room with wainscoting, an understated chandelier and crown molding. The kitchen and breakfast room have been upgraded for style and comfort, including a tile backsplash, craftsman style island lighting and a built-in microwave. There’s plenty to like here, and it’s exactly what kitchen-lovers look for.

Throughout the home you’ll notice a calm, contemporary color scheme and tasteful, magazine cover elegance. The recently renovated master bath providing perhaps the best example with its frameless glass and tile shower and separate tub. The bedroom offers plenty of room and his and her closets.

The second and third bedrooms are equally spacious and modern, and the guest bathroom was remodeled only this year.

Outdoor entertainment value was clearly a focus for the seller. The year-round sun porch, added in 2011, is screened and has vinyl windows, a ceiling fan and a rich beadboard ceiling that connects the space to the home’s hardwood interior. Entertaining will surely spread to the attached wood deck and on to the stone patio, the center of which is the raised fireplace and flagstone knee-wall. This will be without question the weekend gathering place.

Heating and air systems were replaced in 2004, and the exterior paint is only two-years-old.

The community of Alyson Pond is sought after for its location, popular community pool, clubhouse and tennis courts.

Only a visit to 8501 Yucca Trail will show why this three-bedroom home won’t last long on today’s market. You’ll know when you see it.
