custom features-do they help or hinder when it’s time to sell your home?

When you live in a house-whether it is for a few years or a few decades, you make it a home. You decorate, you paint, you hang curtains and put up shelves and paintings and make it your own in many ways.

What happens if your sense of style is different? What if your colors are bold, your fixtures are funky and you have added a few unique features and showcased your eclectic style? What will that mean when it comes time for you to sell your home?

1111 Coventry Road WAtkinsville, GA

What can we say about this charming farmhouse?

Well it was love at first sight for us, that is for sure. Never mind that we have an affinity for farmhouses in general-this one is truly a must see.
Before we even stepped inside, we were given a tour of the property by the owners. Sprawling over 6 acres, 1111 Coventry Road is actually comprised of two lots, one with direct access to Colham Ferry Rd. The owners had originally thought of building another house for extended family, but decided against it, and now the lot is open pasture, and home to their delightful group of chickens.

The main homesite is breathtaking. It offers custom landscape, but not so much that it needs a lot of care or maintenance. Full of native shrubs and bushes, it feels like the perfect place to play hide and seek, go on a scavenger hunt or take a nature walk. Large wooded areas open into grassy knolls at every turn, we even spotted the kids ‘secret’ camping area.  Ideal for hanging hammocks, climbing trees, or relaxing with a good book, ( I do not know where you want to fit this is but it might be good to say at one point this was actually a nursery) we were content to stay outside, but of course-we were there to tour the house!
