A roomy home is for sale near Wetumpka public schools in the quiet River Chase neighborhood.
River Chase’s location on the north side of Wetumpka also puts residents a short drive from the alluring waters of lakes Jordan and Martin.
“River Chase is a small neighborhood where owners take pride in their homes and care about each other,” Realtor Belyn Richardson said, adding that most homeswere built in the mid to late 1990s in a traditional style with brick exteriors. “River Chase is quiet and friendly.”
River Chase is located just north of the intersection of Holtville Road and Highway 14. For families with school-age children, Wetumpka’s public schools are a short drive away.
Wetumpka’s appeal continues to climb in the wake of TV publicity, the addition of businesses, and the dependable small-town atmosphere and friendliness.
“Living in Wetumpka has so many advantages and it is the place to be with the Home Town Takeover appeal, new stores downtown, galleries and monthly community markets and art walks,” Richardson said. “This neighborhood is safe and if something odd is happening, the neighbors let each other know.”
The River Chase house is for sale for $295,500 and provides four bedrooms and three bathrooms within 2,828 square feet of living space.
“When you enter the front door, a foyer gives you a view of the open floor plan and soaring ceilings,” Richardson said. “It is technically a garden home with shared brick walls with neighbors but because of the size of the home and the yard, it doesn’t feel that way at all. I’m most impressed with how large the bedrooms are and the amount of storage the home offers.”
A screened porch, open patio ideal for grilling, well-maintained yard and lush zoysia grass combine to create an attractive outdoor setting.
“The main living area is in the hub of the downstairs and is banked on one side with a formal dining room and the kitchen is on the other,” Richardson said. “The dining room has built-ins providing not only storage but character.”
The downstairs master suite includes a walk-in shower that is handicap accessible, large garden tub and double vanities. The master also has a super-sized walk-in close with a built-in cabinet and dresser.
An upstairs loft is perfect for reading and relaxing. Both upstairs bedrooms are large, and attic storage is accessible from both bedrooms.
The home was built in 1996.
“This home offers lots of space, is wonderfully maintained and conveniently located with great neighbors,” Richardson said. “The home is priced competitively in relation to recent sales in the neighborhood. The home has been wonderfully maintained and is on one of the larger lots in River Chase.”
