I spent last week helping my niece prepare her house to sell. Her husband owned the house when they got married but they have since moved closer to Charlotte(NC) due to work schedules. The house is in a resort community on Baden Lake which is on the edge of the Uwharrie National Forest and is about an hour from Charlotte. It would make a great weekend getaway. The house has a small footprint but lives very large due to the open floor plan.
It is very spacious and open. Let’s look at the before and after pictures.
Below is a picture of the kitchen.
And another view of the before.
The first thing we did was use a steamer to remove the wallpaper borders in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Then we painted the walls a neutral color.
We also removed the window treatments except for the blinds.
A little paint makes a big difference.
We used shutters for a makeshift headboard and a queen size air mattress for the bed.
Because we already had a single air mattress we used it for the second bedroom.
Below is a photo of the bathroom before our little makeover.
Again, we took down the wallpaper border and removed the window treatment and gave it a fresh coat of paint. We also added a new shower curtain for a little color.
A spacious deck stretches across the back of the house and there is plenty of storage in the basement. Sorry for the poor quality photo but I was shooting into the sun and I have very limited photography skills!!
There is a marina just down the street.
There is also a beach area and a playground as well as a community swimming pool.
If you know of anyone who is looking for a weekend home please share this real estate link with them!
I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
