Come and see this beautiful, 2 story home,... Read moreCome and see this beautiful, 2 story home, in the most sought-after school district in South Charlotte, in the popular Ballantyne Area! This modern, transitional home has 3 BRs upstairs, plus a Huge Bonus Room / 4th BR. It has many upgrades, like a Leaded Glass Door with Sidelights at the Entrance / Foyer, a Custom-Added, Covered Front Porch, and a Comfortable, Easy Flow. Upon entering this lovely home, you'll see Gorgeous, new, Wide-Plank "Pergo Hardwood-Look" floors at both the Dining Room and the Living Room. You'll see an "offset", turned landing stairwell with open, wooden rails on one side, and a hallway with the laundry and an Adorable Powder Room with a pedestal sink and those same, great floors. The Kitchen w/ an Eat-In Bar and a Breakfast Room flow to the Great Room, at the rear of the home. There's New, Upgraded Carpeting with 8 Lb. Rebond Padding, Fresh, Custom Paint, Upgraded, 42", Maple Raised Panel Cabinets with w/ Crown Molding in the Kitchen and Pergo Floors in the Kitchen and Breakfast Nook. The Bedrooms are Nice-Sized, and the Bonus Room is HUGE (it can also be used as a 4th bedroom but it is perfect for a Media / Movie Room / Man Cave, or a perfect, "Work At Home" Office). The Master Bedroom has a Huge, Walk In Closet and a Luxury Bath with Dual Vanities, a Deep Soaking Garden Tub and a Separate Shower. This all in a super, small neighborhood with Excellent, Top Rated Schools- the new Ballantyne Elementary School, Community House Middle School and Ardrey Kell High School (people move here just FOR the schools)! This Immaculately-Maintained Home has Maintenance-Free Vinyl Siding and sits on an Oversized, Fenced Yard w/ a Unique, Custom-Built, Entertaining Veranda / Deck (both the deck and the fence have been recently stained) and a well-producing, sunny garden area in the left of the yard. Your rear view? Quiet, Peaceful and Private, which is very hard to find in most communities in the Ballantyne area today! Your new home backs to big trees, not another home that would block the restful view behind you. You'll have a 22 x 20, Two Car Garage with a garage door opener with two remotes, Insulated Windows and Economical Gas Heat and Hot Water. Call us to view this home for yourself today!

Past rental reports as well as all rentals coming on the books & projected rental income reports are available from both Island Realty & VRBO. This is a very popular rental property & is maintained impeccably. The owner prefers to sell all furnishings in the house on a separate bill of sale or negotiated w/ the sale, so it is ready to take over immediately as a cash-generating property, or to move in as a resident. This property is under a rental contract & therefore the sale must be in accordance with the SC Vacation Rental Property Act. Rental Income: 2014, on books, $75,240.90, Projected 2014: $85K. 2013: $67,597.63. 2012: $55,265
