182LPS

Jonathan Hall of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Greater Danbury Brokerage represented the buyer of this sparkling 2 bedroom luxury townhome. Located at 182 Lake Place South, this quality appointed unit offers main level hardwood floors, an updated eat-in kitchen, a private oversized deck, large bedrooms and an improved lower level. This unit is part of the Lake Place community with awesome amenties, including a private beach, paddle tennis, clubhouse and lakeside pool. In addition to the amenities, the maintenance needs of Lake Place have been recently addressed with new roofs throughout, new windows, skylights, drainage and repaved roads.

Jonathan Hall introduced his clients to this property as they were looking for turnkey living. Due to it’s close proximity to the New York State line, the buyers can easily commute to their jobs in NYC yet live in a high quality 1600+ square foot home in a peaceful suburban setting. Due to Jonathan’s follow through and work ethic, the buyers were able to move in less than 2 months when the sellers accepted their offer.

This was a very in demand property due to condition, location & value, and my clients won out on the multiple offers. If you own a home in the Western  area of Danbury and are considering a move in the future, please contact me.

Danbury CT Condo & Townhome Units

Newer condos & townhomes in the Danbury area go in all shapes, sizes and layouts. The advantage of this is that you can find a community that you feel the most comfortable in, location, amenties as well as having the space set up in a way that best suites your lifestyle. The most common layout set up is a tri level. The advantage of having three different levels of space (living area level, bedroom level, and basement) is that you can divide the space and minimize noise from public areas to sleeping areas. Three level townhomes are available at Woodland Hills, Sterling Woods, Kensington Woods, Stetson Place, Arlington Woods, Lake Place and others.

The second most popular set up for townhomes in the Danbury area having 4 levels of space. The extra level is created by either having a loft space in (as is the case for some of the floor plans in Woodland Hills) or creating a level along the slope from the garage (kind of a sub basement) which was done at some of the units over in the Westville Commons. You do get a some additional living space, but it might be difficult to do things like calling people to something & also could be difficult to climb the stairs if you get ill or incapacitated.

There are surprising very few two level units. Some communities that offer two level units (main level, and either an upper level or basement) include of the set ups in the Poet’s Landing community and Summit View (Old Brookfield Road). Some two level units are in older (20 years or so) such as Park Ridge, Lakewood, Arrowood and Barclay Commons.

There is a very small supply of newer ranch style units. They are desireable because they are typically easier to clean and maintain. They are also good if you become in a position where climbing stairs can be difficult. There are ranch units models in Poet’s landing & Crystal Bay (both with direct access to Candlewood Lake) Lake Place, Westwood Village, Barclay Commons, Shepherd Hill as well some units in the original section of Sterling Woods.

Work with a realtor who knows the market, the various complex, as will listen to your needs & help you get the unit that you want, fits your lifestyle & budget!

Why You Don’t See For Sale Signs in Condo Communities

Often, I get calls from people saying they went into ‘xyz community’ located here, and they want to know more information about it & wonder what it is for sale. To there surprise, there are several units for sale in some of the luxury townhome communities in Danbury, such as Woodland Hills, Kensington Woods and Arlington Woods.

 

All condo & townhouse communities have restrictions written in to the homeowner’s association rules saying what they can and can’t do with the exterior. One of those things is about ‘for sale’ signs. Almost all of the townhome and condo communities do not allow them because they don’t want those units to stand out from the others. Also, they don’t want people driving around in the communities without a reason to be there (visiting friends or looking at property with an agent).

However, if you do decide to drive in to a complex and want more information on what is for sale or to arrange showings to units for sale, please send me an email.
