West Columbia Based Exit Agape Real Estate Services Prepares Forest Acres Home for Next 50 Years

In Uncategorized on September 22, 2009 at 2:07 am

All of the elements that attracted the original purchaser to 4622 Meadowood in Forest Acres are still in place: the quiet streets that wind through the neighborhood, the variety of retail stores and restaurants within minutes of the home, the easy access to downtown Columbia where a person can catch a play at the Koger Center, the many art galleries and museums.

The home, a brick ranch, is typical for the neighborhood. Large front and back yards, plenty of shade trees, and mature plantings are the norm. As with most established neighborhoods, the older residents are looking to downsize into something more manageable. The former resident of this home purchased a home in our carefree, age-qualified Agape Village Community. The sprawling yard that was once a playground paradise for young children had become a difficult burden as the resident aged.

 Typically the residents of these homes were too busy raising their families and creating great home-associated memories to worry about changing attitudes of a new generation of home buyers. Many of the neighborhood homes have been updated only once in the last 50 years. For reasons that are largely unknown, the 1970’s seems to have been the decade of choice for updating.

 

The good news is that usually the construction (or the “bones”) of the homes is very good. The bad news is that today’s typical buyer has trouble seeing the potential behind the yellow shag carpet, the “harvest gold” range, and the loud paisley wallpaper in the master bedroom. Consequently the home will usually suffer when put on the market. It is not the fault of the sellers. The home has served their needs perfectly for the last fifty years. It is not unreasonable to believe that the seller would deem these features as adequate (or even quite suitable) for potential purchasers.

Restoring these homes to their former glory and emphasizing the many positive attributes of existing homes has become the specialty of Ellyn Nester. Ellyn works as an agent for Exit Agape Real Estate Services, and also as a project manager for Agape Senior. Ellyn has personally supervised over a dozen complete home renovations and is always looking for ways to reinvent listings for today’s savvy home buyer. Ellyn loves the challenge of taking an out-of-date home, and bringing it into the 21st century with new finishes, changes to floor plans, and updates that make sense for modern families.

 

4622 Meadowood is the latest example of this renovation process. This lovely home has tons of living space, both indoor and out. The home features a large, well-constructed sunroom with vaulted ceilings and sweeping views of the back yard. The sunroom was combined with a wooden screened-in deck by the former owner to create a great entertaining space for backyard barbeques and family fun. The home features a split bedroom plan, and the master suite boasts its own adjoining sitting room. The 20’ by 40’ Hoover outbuilding can be used for storage, workshop, garage, or man cave.
