401 Sebring Ct. – Comments from the Photographer

Comments from the  Photographer on 401 Sebring Ct., a waterfront home for sale on Lake Wylie

Listed for $965,000 in Lake Wylie’s HarborTowne neighborhood, I had high expectations for this home.  I knew it would be a pleasure to photograph, with lots of big lake views.  I was not disappointed.  The home is located on a beautiful part of Lake Wylie, surrounded by other lovely homes. 

I was greeted by the seller, who gave me a tour.  I asked him what drew him to the home when he purchased it several years ago.  Without hesitation, he said the views and location.  The home was built to capitalize on the lake views; big picture windows are in every room except the bathrooms and bonus room.

The great room has huge cathedral ceilings, with windows all the way to the top.  The upper window are tinted, which cut down on heat and excessive light.  I didn’t notice the tinting until I downloaded the photographs.  That was a bit of a challenge with the pictures!  Sometimes the camera picks up things that my eyes do not notice. 

The master bedroom is on the main level, and and a huge walk in closet.  It reminded me of a closet I photographed in another house about a year ago.  In that one, the owners had actually hosted a party INSIDE their closet after the remodeling was done.  Neighbors were gathered around a center island, enjoying wine and cheese in the closet.  Quite memorable!

In this home’s closet, there is a center island cabinet that houses 100 pairs of shoes.  “97 for her, 3 for me,” quipped the seller. 

One of my favorite features of the home was the library loft above the great room.  It was loaded with built in bookshelves, and lots of places to curl up with a good read.  And, naturally, it overlooks the water!  To see this house, visit the property webpage: Lake Wylie Waterfront Home for Sale.

Let me know what you think.  And have fun counting the shoes!

Comments from the Photographer – 12735 Withers Cove

March 13, 2010

12735 Withers Cove in Charlotte, NC, just listed for $649,000.  Comments from the photographer: Jan Todd

When I arrived at the home to take pictures for this new listing, I was greeted warmly by the seller, a man with a delightful sense of humor and most helpful.  It didn’t take long for me to determine that the homeowners were very creative and artistic.  Their home has many details that are whimsical, yet very tasteful.

Occasionally I see marks of individuality on a property that would not appeal to the masses, in fact, might deter most buyers.  This was not the case at 12735 Withers Cove.  The home was inviting and interesting and quite lovely!  Take a look at the property webpage: http://www.thelakewylieman.com/Lake_wylie_real_estate_withers_cove.html

My favorite feature in the home was the kitchen/dining area.  The builder used columns to define the dining area, giving it a very intimate feel in an otherwise open area.  A sitting area next to the dining table opened up to the second floor.  The seller had hanging plants (on adjustable cables, for easy watering!).  It reminded me of a mini-atrium.  Quite lovely!  Take a peek and tell me what you think.
