Q & A with Listing Agent Karan Murray
What are the home’s most valuable features for prospective buyers?
“A mere 2 miles from the town of Galway (Saratoga County, NY) sits this lovely contemporary home nestled off the road in an absolutely beautiful setting! As soon as you step through the door of 5742 Jockey Street, you’re greeted by gorgeous views. Large windows throughout the first floor offer a scenic setting throughout. Along with the living areas on the main level you also have two additional bedrooms and a full bath. The second floor has a master bedroom with a large spacious bath and soaking tub fit for royalty! Two additional bedrooms, another full bath, and a loft space also are on the second level. There is also a walkout lower level offering a flexible bonus space for recreation, a home gym, or DIY/craft area.”
How would you describe the home’s style or floor plan?
“The home has a large contemporary open floor plan that is flooded with light by the large windows and many skylights. The large kitchen has a huge amount of cabinet space and a large island with a cook top. While working at the kitchen sink you can take in the natural views of the hills in the distance as well as the crystal pool and deck space! Centered between that and the spacious family room is an open dining room with sliding doors to the home’s fabulous outdoor living space, complete with a deck and pool. An expansive four car garage provides ample storage for everyday transportation and recreational vehicles.”
Are there any unusual amenities?
“One of the unique features of 5742 Jockey Street is the new roof system, which is only two and a half years old. Called a “Cold Roof,” it’s basically two roofs on top of one another with a space in between. The style of this roof reduces the ice dams in the valleys that can haunt homeowners during the long winter season. Another feature of this home is the large salt water swimming pool. This type of pool is easy to maintain and lacks the strong chlorine smell that you have with regular pools. There’s also a large deck space and a luxurious hot tub. All of this outdoor space is surrounded by gorgeous gardens and an abundance of trees that frame the spectacular view. There is also a first floor mudroom with a large laundry room that offers extra storage space.”
What’s your favorite thing about the property?
“My favorite features of this home are its convenient location to Route 29 and surrounding areas, and its bright open floor plan. The house has great “flow” and space for a large family or entertaining. The interior is light and bright even on dark, cloudy days, and you can enjoy the view and natural beauty surrounding this home from the comfort of the indoors.”
