Monday afternoon we put 2007 Cherry Laurel Drive on the market. Located just off of Forest Drive, this move in ready home is smack in the middle of popular Forest Acres.
Cherry Laurel has 1,704 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths. Here’s a portion of the MLS remarks: “Beautiful updates and shining hardwood floors. Eat-in kitchen with stainless appliances. Huge family room with cork flooring, small kitchenette, and full bath. New siding. Fenced backyard with recently installed retaining wall/planter boxes that include drip lines; remodeled deck; full sprinkler system; storage shed; and patio area. HVAC ’10. 2 paved driveways plus 1-car garage w/workshop.”
As nice as some of the features are, three standout IMO: 1) The large downstairs family room is awesome (not pictured above) . This will serve someone well as a playroom, game room, over-sized man cave, or Wii Room. It’s as large or larger than most FROGs of a $500,000 home. 2) The double driveway is cleverly done. There’s enough room for multiple cars, trailers, and/or boats…or whatever. Folks can comfortably store a boat and still not have to ‘tandem’ park. 3) Satchel Ford Elementary school.
Physical features notwithstanding, the best quality is the location. Cherry Laurel is two blocks from what I call the ‘Forest Drive Corridor’ and only blocks away from Gold’s Gym, Trader Joes, Bonefish, and Trenholm Plaza (Starbucks, Fresh Market, Café Caturra). Further still, the property is only 5ish minutes to I-77, or anything downtown Columbia.
