This handsome colonial is a gracious, welcoming home in its current condition. But what if a seller offered a buyer $100,000 to upgrade a prospective purchase? That scenario is not hypothetical.

This is a one of a kind opportunity for a homebuyer to personalize their new home in whatever area is most important to them. Love a state-of-the-art kitchen? Choose the best quality and energy efficient appliances and materials. Prefer a finished basement? The lower level is currently a blank canvas just waiting for the right family to make it their own. Prefer a comprehensive sprucing? Appropriate the funds for new paint, refinished hardwood floors or landscaping. Simply tour the property and compile the wish list.

While this unique selling incentive is available, it by no means should be interpreted as necessary. This property in its current state is an appealing prospect with nearly 5,000 square feet of living space with beautifully tailored and wonderfully decorated rooms within a fluid and versatile floor plan. Under normal circumstances, new residents can certainly move in and take occupancy immediately with no preliminary renovations, but oh, the possibilities now presented with this rare offer.

The first level consists of a 16 x 13 square foot fireplaced living room, a 16 x 13 square foot dining area, a 21 x 16 square foot fireplaced family room with a cathedral ceiling, skylights and exterior French doors, an oversized and an open 34 x 16 square foot eat-in kitchen with granite surfaces and a center island, a 16 x 13 square foot office with built-ins and a 21 x 11 square foot bedroom suite with a walk-in closet and full, private bath. The second level boasts a 19 x 16 square foot master bedroom suite with a private half bath and a walk-in closet, three additional bedrooms at 16 x 13, 14 x 12 and 13 x 11 square feet and a 21 x 16 square foot playroom. The third level takes full advantage of this home's generous footprint with a 25 x 20 square foot bedrooms with a skylight.

This property also offers many amenities and benefits with its nearly three quarters of an acre lot, central air conditioning, a three-car garage and is located in a highly coveted neighborhood in Lexington. By this introductory description and accompanying pictures, potential homebuyers can easily appraise the already appealing advantages of this residence, but with this incredibly funding opportunity, it can truly become the home of a family's dreams.
