Magnolia: Wanted – Impeccable Manners


First impressions are lasting and entering this newly built three story town home could leave your friends with quite an undesirable one. The front door opens to a steep flight of stairs that literally leads you directly to the first floor bathroom. You might as well write “welcome to my toilet” right over the front door just so your guests aren’t too surprised on entry.

The main floor is open with all the desirable things like granite countertops, a breakfast bar, cherry cabinets, stainless appliances, bamboo floors, and a gas fireplace. Doing laundry in this hip craftsman style town home will be like having a free home gym since your laundry room is on the garage level and the bedrooms are on the third floor with several steep staircases in between. The bedrooms on the third floor are a bit small and they aren’t square, but instead have a wall jutting out in the corner to give the building an architectural feature. The bucks you’ll save by not having to pay homeowner’s dues (because you’ll be maintaining the building yourself) can be used to buy your new heart shaped beds that should fit perfectly. If you don’t want to invest in some new furniture and all the heart shaped beds from the Pocono’s sales are gone, then you might measure the bedrooms before signing on the dotted line.

At $439,000 (recently reduced from $464,000) this town home is a steal. It’s your call. If you want to encorporate laundry day as part of your workout regimen and have impeccable manners, always closing the bathroom door, then this one’s for you.

Note: For $25,000 more you can get a town home in the same complex with an additional 300 sq. ft., your laundry on the third floor, one bathroom on each floor (although one is in the garage), and an extra bonus room on the first floor that can be used as a small office.

    Very entertaining! If it continues to drop in price I might take a look.
