For the two decades we lived at 1317 Braeburn Road we have enjoyed many family experiences and a lifestyle that made our house a home.
The neighbors are warm and friendly; we have an annual party at the end of the street (which you might call cul de sac, or you might call dead end; either way it cuts way down on the traffic.)
The commute is easy, about 8 miles to uptown. The neighborhood is close to beautiful parks, great shopping and medical facilities, and walking distance to Rama Road Elementary.
This house has been reliable and efficient, easy to live in and maintain.
One of the major features is the huge garage, providing room for two cars plus plenty of room for hobbies, storage, and ping pong.The concrete driveway has plenty of space for a basketball goal.The large and private backyard is home to many birds and several raised bed planters that were used to grow tomatoes. The patio off of the ground level family room was where we enjoyed cookouts and evenings watching the fireflies in the summer and star gazing year-round.
There is a site-built and electrified small building at the rear of the property that we stored bicycles, tools and yard equipment in.
The front yard includes aromatic gardenia bushes and a magnolia tree that we planted when we moved here. An ornamental cherry tree blooms in spring and the blossoms resemble small bouquets. Annually blooming and beautiful flowers include daylilies, amaryllis, peonies, crocus, daffodils, bearded iris, azaleas and more.
The brick exterior of the house is low maintenance! The architectural shingles on the house and shed and the black shutters give the house a classic look.
Gorgeous hardwood floors are original to the house. We added tile to the entryway and the entire lower level of the house. Energy efficient windows, lots of insulation, and a high-efficiency HVAC system keep our house’s utility bills very low.
The comfort and convenience of the layout of a spilt level house was very functional for our family. The large family room on the lower level leading out the patio was ideal for indoor and outdoor activities. Having the large utility room with an exterior door to the driveway was convenient for bringing groceries in and loading up for family trips, plus functioned as a “mud-room” and toy storage. The ground floor includes a washer and dryer, full bath, and bedroom (which we used as an office).
We welcomed friends and family into our home through the front door entryway and on into our kitchen. We enjoyed large and small gatherings here over the years.
The dining and living rooms are also on the middle level.
Up the stairs to the top level are three bedrooms. The hall bathroom includes a whirlpool tub and shower and a wonderfully unique double vanity, mirror and sinks. A convenient linen closet is also located in the hallway. The master bedroom has a full en suite bathroom and two large closets.
We have so many wonderful memories that we’ll take with us as we move.
We hope that you and your family and friends will enjoy many happy times and years living and visiting here.
