Walk to Beach, Saratoga Lake & Sunset Views
20 Secretariat Lane, Saratoga, NY 12866
Q & A with Listing Agent, Darlene Chorman
What are the home’s most valuable features for prospective buyers?
“20 Secretariat Lane offers everything you can ask for in a townhome: single story living on a quiet cul-de-sac, walking distance to Saratoga Lake, putting a beautiful beach and stunning sunsets practically in your backyard!
Summer days can be spent lakeside, sunbathing and swimming at Brown’s Beach, dining al fresco at Dock Brown’s or Lake Local…and then stroll back home without needing your car. “Staycation” at home or host a backyard barbeque for friends on the patio surrounded by perennial flowers, brick paver walkway and lovely landscaping. During cooler months, cozy up to the fireplace in the living room, which opens to the spacious kitchen and dining area.
Also worth mentioning is the light, bright, and beautifully finished lower level, with transom windows and tons of storage. This is a one-owner home in meticulous condition with many upgrades…a must see.”
How would you describe the home’s style or floor plan?
“Perfect for casual entertaining, the home has an open floor plan with a spacious dining area. The kitchen provides a large peninsula with room for 4-5 guests seated and you have much counter space for preparing meals and engaging guests. Both areas with warm wood floors and defined spaces open to the carpeted living room warmed by the fireplace and bathed in eastern oriented natural light with transoms above the windows. A french door takes you down the brick paver path to the courtyard style outdoor barbecue area, perfect for summer evenings.
Down the hallway is a guest bedroom and bath and the master suite with a huge walk-in closet, double door entry to the master bath with double shower and a private water closet. Back to the kitchen, the convenient mud/laundry room has a large closet and entry to the 2 car garage.
The lower level is the same square footage as the main level, so it is huge. With half finished space and half storage, there is room for hobbies, exercise equipment or a media room. The finished space includes a large multi-purpose room and a more private room perfect for a home office… a space for everyone.”
Are there any unusual amenities?
“This is a townhome, but there is NO HOA monthly fee, and you have the freedom to landscape and garden to your heart’s delight. The seller has enjoyed this aspect and the grounds reflect the pride of ownership with brick paver walkways and barbecue area, retaining wall with perennials and lovely green spaces. Only 11 years old, it offers easy exterior maintenance materials allowing you to enjoy every aspect of townhouse living without the expense of HOA fees.”
What’s your favorite thing about the property?
“20 Secretariat Lane is convenient to I-87, Malta and all the new shops and restaurants. It is close to Saratoga Springs with its Victorian charm, the race tracks and culture and within walking distance to Saratoga Lake. While sitting in your backyard, it is so quiet and private the world slips away!”
