Perfection in Lakeside at Riley’s
55 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 features of this property that I think are very valuable to a prospective buyer. The sellers are the original owners, they know every detail about the house and have impeccably maintained it. They purchased the 1.51 acre wooded parcel behind the house which allows for a very private setting in the rear yard. I would also say the large bonus room over the garage and the finished basement (9′ ceilings) with a full bath are very desirable for those working and schooling from home.
How would you describe the home’s style/floor plan?
This home has a traditional New England feel with beautiful hardwood floors, moldings and built-ins. A classic feel is retained while providing an open concept from the kitchen to the living room that buyers desire. There is a spacious first floor master suite with the remaining bedrooms upstairs. The formal dining room flows through the butler’s pantry to the kitchen which has been upgraded. The gorgeous cherry cabinets are Amish and were made with many custom touches. Countertops are a dark quartz offset by a white tile backsplash. The beautiful “Saratoga” porch adds to the warmth of this exemplary property.
Are there any unusual amenities?
The lot size is very unique in this neighborhood where most parcels are around 1/2 acre. This 1.83 acre lot assures privacy in your own backyard. The large bonus room with its own staircase is another surprise. This area is perfect for guests, working from home or a study space for children. The third amenity I want to mention is the huge finished lower level with 9 foot ceilings. There is a family room, kitchen/workshop area, recreation/gym area, staircase to the garage and full bath with wiring to add a sauna. The lower level adds approximately 1600 square feet to the 2938 square feet above grade.
What’s your favorite thing about the property?
My favorite things about this property are its location, the floor plan and the perfect maintenance levels. The property is located just off Northway Exit 14, minutes from downtown Saratoga Springs, Saratoga Lake and the historic Saratoga Race Course. This home has a traditional feel with modern touches like an open floor plan, bonus room and finished lower level. This one owner home reflects pride of ownership everywhere!
