1070 TIMBERCREST DRIVE - Evaluation

1070 TIMBERCREST DRIVE - Evaluation
4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 2,595 sq. ft. on a 5,809 sq. ft. lot.
Listed for Sale at $975,000

Nice looking newer home in Shadowbrook.

Nice wood flooring. Very unique.

Kitchen with center island, though it doesn't feel as large as these photos make it appear.
There is a utility room off the living room which is convenient, yet I'm not sure if that's the best location for a washer and dryer. This home does have a downstairs bedroom and master bath which is ideal for inlaws. Another feature I look for in a ground floor bedroom of a 2 story home is if the bathroom shower or tub is easily accessible for seniors. In this case, they hage a stall shower with a low step in so they got that right. This house also has an elevator which is certainly helpful for the disabled, buit might not be a good fit for just anyone.

Master bedroom has some nice features in the ceiling architecture. The 2nd  story has lots of windows making this a bright, cheerful house. You may get a slight road noise from Almaden Expwy. with the windows open. You have a nice view of the farmhouse next door.

The yard is interesting. The back side of the home is very close to the fence. I'm actually surprised to see this because there are typically setback requirements imposed by the city that prevent builders from being so close to the rear fence. This causes the back yard to be broken up into 2 half yards, if you will. Both are somewhat small though these pictures make it appear larger.

Overall a very nice custom home with some unique attributes, but also some quirks. I believe there is a limited buyer pool for this particular property at the present time. Gary Nobile, Realtor, MBA
