Many people say they want one-level living, and there are many choices in the Johnson City area - a wide range of prices, sizes, prices and quality. Some who say it's time for "one-level" still fret about where to put a shop, where to store things. Maybe they'll want a basement and just use those steps as little as possible. Sometimes the houses that are listed as "one level" in fact have several steps to the front entrance and a drive-under garage. It takes a little detective work to find the perfect place.
The ranch at 481 Hale Chapel solves the one-level problem beautifully - not a single step even getting into the house - a gently sloping walk past lovingly landscaped gardens.
The interior has an open plan with exceptionally attractive windows for enjoying lovely vistas. The kitchen is a special delight. No - there are too many good features to single out one. You need to see it for yourself. The yard deserves a blog of its own - lovingly planned and well-maintained perennial gardens and shrubbery, just over an acre.
Instead of a basement with stairs to climb, there's a large, light detached building which has heat and air and lots of windows - ideal for "man cave", workshop, artist's studio - or anything else you might normally put in the basement. The exterior is attractive and access is by a gently sloped walk - again no steps. And the large garage is where you need it to be.
If you've waited for the perfect one'level place, this may be it. Call or email me for more pictures and detailed information about all the improvements.
Location is convenient to Johnson City, Kingsport and airport, with just over an acre of beautiful yard.
If this is not it, I'll know you're hard to please, but I am patient and will help you keep looking. But this may be the place.
