NORTH SALEM, N.Y. -- January is always a good time for budget-conscious shoppers to find retail values. A recent listing in North Salem by Coldwell Banker agent Margot Friedlander provides the real estate equivalent.
Friedlander is marketing the four-bedroom home at 7 Sun Valley Heights in North Salem for the astonishing price of $350,000. The median sale price for a single family home in North Salem at the end of the third quarter in 2014 was $506,000.
“It’s a great quality home for an amazing price,’’ said Friedlander, who will show the home at an open house on Sunday, Jan. 11 from 2-4 p.m. “People wonder what’s wrong with it. There’s nothing wrong. It’s just a tremendous value.”
The Cape Cod style home has two full baths, a garage, more than 1,900 square feet and sits on .71 acres.
The kitchen was updated in 2014 with stainless steel appliances and a copper sink. There are two fireplaces, hardwood floors, a family room, large walk-in attic and large deck. The square footage does not include a finished lower level family room or the walk-in attic.
“A lot of people are amazed by how much living space it has,’’ Friedlander said. “There’s a large pellet stove that does an amazing job to help reduce heating costs. The roof was done in 2006, the floors were refinished and there have been a lot of updates. It could be a great mother-daughter house. It’s move-in ready.”
There are two bedrooms on each floor. The basement includes a family room, rec room and laundry area. The lower level also offers a walk out to the yard, which is complete with mature plantings and apple and raspberry trees.
An additional benefit is the home’s proximity to easy commuting. A New York City commuter could walk to the nearby Croton Falls train station, and Interstate 684 is close for a commuter who uses a car. The home is also located in the North Salem School District.
