One of these days, it's gonna happen. I'm gonna open my front door some morning, step out onto the porch in a nightshirt, barefoot, and whammo. The wind is gonna slam shut the door. My door automatically locks. And, with my luck, this will happen at the precise moment a busload of people drive by. With cameras. My hair will be sticking out in all sorts of odd directions.
Where will I find the positive spin on that, you may ask? Hmmm . . . I would probably say to myself, it could be worse. How about naked photos sold to Playboy? That would be worse. Although, at my age, I'm not even so sure about that. There seems to be a lot of women over 50 posing nude for Playboy. See, there's always a silver lining to things and a different perspective.
Speaking of perspective, this new listing is presently occupied by a tenant who owns very large furniture. A buyer will need to look past the furniture to visual their own stuff in this home, because the size of the furniture tends to overpower some of the rooms.
This home has 4 bedroom and 3 1/2 baths, and was built by Corinthian in 2005. It's located in the Eastmeadow subdivison in Elk Grove, near Bruceville and Elk Grove Boulevard. This is a 2-story home, with about 2,690 square feet.
A totally cool feature is the wrought iron and cherry railing on the stairs. The staircase is impressive. It winds up and around, over the family room, with part of the second floor exposed. The same cherrywood is carried through in the cabinets in the kitchen, baths and laundry.
You'll find a formal living / dining area near the entrance, and then the open room concept takes over. Much of the first floor space is made up of the kitchen, breakfast nook and family room. Although, in a wing off the family room is a first-floor master suite. There is also a second master suite on the upper floor, along with 2 more bedrooms.
This home features a 3-car garage. The single car faces the front and the two-car faces the side. There is an uncovered patio area in the back, plus a grassy lawn with front and rear auto sprinklers.
