It might be surprising, or even unbelievable, to hear about a house selling in three days, but in this case it was not too good to be true. In that short time, this Golden Eagle gem in the Tallahassee area sold for only $28,000 below its $715,000 asking price.

There was a lot to like about the house, said Realtor Yvonne Howell of Coldwell Banker Hartung and Noblin, who represented the buyer. The house is situated on almost an acre of waterfront property, just a stone’s throw away from Golden Eagle’s clubhouse, pool and tennis. 

“What they loved was really the floor plan and the location; they really liked the Golden Eagle area,” said Howell.

The floor plan offers plenty of space, with four spacious bedrooms, an office, a bonus room and four bathrooms spread over 4,000 square feet. The outdoor living area (including a saltwater-filtration, screened pool) is situated to let the space act as an extension of the rest of the house, visible from many vantage points. 

“The living spaces wrap around the screened pool with glass enclosures, which brings the outside in for a very relaxed feel,” explained Howell.

The master bedroom’s position on the opposite end of the house from the other bedrooms affords privacy, which, along with the nice office, was another key selling point. “The house just flowed,” Howell noted. Its layout was all that her buyers were looking for.

Additionally, updates in the kitchen and bathrooms with “the most current and up-to-date products” were a nice touch. The kitchen is particularly unique, with three ovens — a welcome abundance for the buyers, one of whom loves to bake. The kitchen’s central location also made it perfect for both family living and entertaining.
