Several dozen neighbors near Towne Acres Elementary School gathered on the hill at 720 Sharon Drive (my house) to watch Johnson City’s firework’s display and visit. I hope they took time to take flyers from in front of the two ranches on the market on Sharon, just a few doors from the house on the cul de sac. This has been going on for years, and they came with umbrellas in spite of the drizzle.
The all-brick Tudor-style ranch at 707 Sharon has three bedrooms, three full baths, a huge kitchen, and a fully finished walk-out basement. Both the den and the rec room downstairs have fireplaces, and sliding glass doors to the fenced back yard, one to the deck and the other to the patio. Most of the floors are hardwood. This one is only $249,900, and with its curb appeal and space and considering the enormous range of prices in the immediate neighborhood, this is a good one to buy and make even better.
The ranch at 703 Sharon is also all-brick and is an exceptionally well-maintained and well-decorated property. with five bedrooms, 3.5 baths, two fireplaces, huge walk-out basement with rec room/library, a bedroom/bath suite with a humongous bedrooms. This property is not on the market at this time, but the seller authorized me to put my sign in the yard before it is listed, to get the attention of the people who come on July 4 to the otherwise quiet cul de sac. Tax record says the value is $412,100, and it’s a beauty. More details, asking price, pictures and virtual tour will be available very soon.
