Open House Review: 53 Flamenco

Located across a small tot lot in the Treo Tract of Woodbury is a 3 bedroom townhouse with a desirable ground floor bedroom.  As of February 7, the status of the home is “Accepting Backup Offers”.  I was interested in what and when the home would sell.  It is competitively priced and in a nice location but the layout did not flow well.  The ground floor layout was a bit segmented, but the home has two small outdoor areas and only one shared wall. The property is slated for Woodbury Elementary School and Jeffrey Trails Middle School.

Asking Price:   $779,900
Bedrooms:       3

Open House Review: 6 Bull Run

6 Bull Run looks like the same model as a review from October at 7 Merrimac, however this home is listed 150 square feet smaller.  This home has modified its family room and split it into a small family room and a separate office.  The large backyard is a major selling point, along with the home’s remodeled kitchen and bathrooms.  It is a zero-lot-line property that feeds into Brywood Elementary, Sierra Vista Middle School and Northwood High School.

Asking Price:                $914,900
Bedrooms:                    4

The price has been reduced from $810,000 to $795,000 and on January 13, the price was further reduced to $765,000 and received an offer.  It is in turn-key condition and one nice advantage is the home does not share any common walls and has a small outdoor patio space.  The home is slated for Woodbury Elementary and Jeffrey Trails Middle School.
