No Worries in Old Goodwood

The Acadian style home at 6635 Sevenoaks Ave. has an all-brick exterior and a new roof, which means the new owner can enjoy a low-maintenance home with 3,474 square feet of living space and a beautiful gunite pool in back. There are bricks lining the driveway and parking pad, a brick walk up to the house, a brick porch and even brick columns in front. It’s a painter’s nightmare and a homeowner’s dream.

Oak planks are the flooring of choice in the foyer and in the beautiful formal dining room to the left. Three windows in the dining room view the front porch, and there are two arched cases at the far end. A cased opening leads to the home’s kitchen, which is floored in porcelain tile. Heavy 3cm granite slabs are on the counter tops, and a double stainless sink sits below a travertine backsplash. A pair of wall ovens is below a microwave cove in one wall, not far from the KitchenAid refrigerator. The painted cabinetry is light colored and most of the kitchen’s new appliances are white, providing a nice contrast with the dark colored granite counter tops. A big walk-in pantry and a nice breakfast area are nearby, and so is the home’s laundry room.

The carpeted living room has French doors to the pool courtyard in back. But the real gathering spot in this home has to be the big family room in back. In this long room, a wall of windows does a great job of bringing the outside in and the inside out. In fact, the whole pool area is visible from the family room, which has a tall masonry fireplace with gas. The family room has six windows on the poolside wall, offering a total of 90 lights of glass. There’s also an exit to the two-car carport in back, as well as a door to the driveway on the side.

Meanwhile, back in the master suite, a large study is across from the master bedroom. The layout of the home has the master suite downstairs and three bedrooms with one full bath upstairs. A pair of bi-fold closets is on a wall opposite two windows in the master bedroom, while the master bath has a pair of vanities below framed mirrors, as well as a large walk-in shower with a bench and two water sources.

Entertaining can be delightful outside, where there is a beautiful kidney-shaped gunite pool surrounded by bricks and Cool Decking. The back yard is professionally landscaped, and a slate patio provides a great spot for watching the kids in the pool.

If you’d like to see this home for yourself, it will be kept open today from 2-5 p.m. Don’t miss your chance to visit this charming home in Goodwood Place.
