Property Description

This house reminds you of the captain of your high school football team - you remember Wesley DePelo. Big and solid. Friendly and inviting. And he always wore a blue ascot that added to his allure and mystery. Everybody wanted to be friends with Wesley. This house has that same sturdy flair and is your opportunity to be the Wesley of your dreams. Start with the ascot... the blue window planter box waiting for a color burst of fall mums to give flair a capital "F". Grounded in slate blue siding with a belly band of white as bright as Swedish abs on a Florida beach, the house sits on a stately lot with a runway sized rear driveway. The shed/barn in the backyard has got room for your accumulated "important but not important enough to be handy" possessions or for more FLAIR, a tribe of pigmy goats. Inside, you will quickly discover why this architectural style is called a "split level". The entry landing has two options (beside just sitting down and refusing to move), up or down, hence the term split level. But the landing is nice all by itself with ceilings way higher than you'd expect and a fancy light hanging down over your indecisive guests as they ponder one of life's bigger questions - up or down (truth be told, you can't go wrong here with either decision). Since your positive 73% of the time, you decide to go up. Enter the living room with so much space you have no idea what to do with it all. Your gaudy sectional couch (we can talk about that later) will look like doll furniture in this room. Good. More space to display your full collection of framed toenail clippings from around the world. If guests get thirsty staring at the Tanzanian hangnail, the kitchen is right around the corner. And it has that new car smell because it is new with zero miles. And this kitchen has all the latest gadgets and upgrades like drawers with knobs to pull them out. Like counters layered in high tech laminate that look amazing even when covered in spaghetti sauce. Like a brushed nickel faucet that has a hidden sprayer. Or the LED light that will make your culinary artistry look its best. As great a working kitchen as this is, even better is the working eating area within steps of the production space. Picture your table, chairs and a hungry crowd seated around, banging knives and forks on the table to spur on a quicker meal. Or maybe just an empty table with a vase of mums. Better. Upstairs also has a custom tiled bathroom and one of those fancy curved shower rods because curved is better than straight. Huge triple medicine cabinet is perfect for even serious hypochondriacs. Two nice sized bedrooms upstairs for those who prefer to sleep with elevation. Heading down isn't a negative experience, quite the contrary. If the living room isn't big enough, send annoying children, guests or significant others to the family room on the lower level. They will have no idea it's punishment because the space is light, bright with a floor that looks like wood but isn't. Downstairs has other cool stuff as well. Love doing laundry while watching MMA fights? The laundry set-up is perfect. Laundry make you want to pee? The second bath is nicely positioned to accommodate even the smallest walnut sized bladders. And yes, this full bath has a shower with a rain head (what, you say, is this Beverly Hills?). No, but it's what Wesley would have, and now you'll have it too. Downstairs still has more to offer. How about a door to get to the backyard in a hurry.... Check. How about two more nice sized bedrooms for those who prefer to sleep closer to mother Earth. Double check. So, just to recap what you've got going here.... A house that can make you the most popular kid in school (or would have if you owned it in high school) with four bedrooms and two bathrooms and a window planter box. If you are not already out buying an ascot for closing, do it now. This place won't last. And neither will your fragile ego if you miss it.
