Curb Appeal in Lakeside at Riley’s
54 Waterview Drive, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Q & A with Listing Agent Valerie Thompson
What are the home’s most valuable features for prospective buyers?
There are a few things that jumped out to me when I first viewed this property. First is the wonderful “Saratoga” porch. The owners told me how much they enjoy relaxing on the porch just watching the world go by. I bet you can see the fireworks from Saratoga National Golf Course from the porch. Second, I would mention what a fantastic private back yard they have here at 54 Waterview Drive. The .43 acre lot is beautifully landscaped; between the stone terracing in the front and the patio in the rear, the hardscape is truly exceptional.
How would you describe the home’s style/floor plan?
I would describe the home style as timeless. Overall it has the traditional styling of a Colonial, accented with some Victorian details. The floor plan has a nice open flow between the family room and large kitchen. There is a formal dining room and living room which would also work well as a first floor office. Three bedrooms, including a generous master suite, plus a loft and two full baths complete the upstairs.
Are there any unusual amenities?
What makes this house so special are some of the details. The family room has a genuine stone fireplace wrapped by a custom surround and mantle. The built-in cabinetry, transom windows, French doors and moldings are exceptional. Window details like the plantation shutters and lead glass treatments add to the appeal.
What’s your favorite thing about the property?
This is a tough one. I really think I need to provide a list of them! 1. The curb appeal is over the top. 2. The high quality construction. 3. The “Saratoga” front porch. 4. Property is only 4.5 miles to Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs, a hop, skip and a jump to the Saratoga Springs Waterfront park on Saratoga Lake and a stone’s throw to a Stewart’s Shop.
