I'm driving North on the Guide Meridian, and we're all about to die. A rough overstatement, to be sure, but as an avid fan of Rolling Stone, the movie "Almost Famous", and an East coast driver on the wrong coast, I've seen more close calls that the Seahawks/Steelers Superbowl so many Bellinghamsters are still bitter about. I'm trying not to weave through shoppers, buskers, rubber-neckers, and Vespas, but the best defense is a good offense.
The draw? Silverado; newer construction in Bellingham on an acre that boasts Master Bedrooms on the main floor, and unique interior design that offers a real Great Room, and a kitchen to match. This isn't the McMansion area that you might be thinking of, but rather a neighborhood of homes that were built in the last 8 years in a neighborhood that welcomes you from the street. Green pastures with white fences, grand entrances, large windows to let in the light, just amazing.
And rare to come on the market. Since 2005, only 3 have come on the market, one sold, one still remains, and the other has just gone to inspection. Each is over 3,000 feet, on an acre of manicured lawn, and upon entering, the feel is palatial, some of the homes even featuring columns in the formal dining room (remember those?).
The view is country, or territorial as you'll see on most real estate websites, but the location's champion points are easily your proximity to shopping, Canada, the airport, and serenity. The neighborhood is off of Axton, and the commute to DT Bellingham could be longer than you would want, but the features of the home and the neighborhood might just make it worth it. Worth over $599,000? That will be one of those conversations to have with your REALTOR, yours truly included.
If you're interested in further photos of the interior of the remaining home, feel free to e-mail us and they'll be sent from my phone as soon as possible. There are a number of neighborhoods and properties that have similar features, and I'll be happy to recommend those as well.
Owning a home is a keystone of wealth.. both financial affluence and emotional security.
