Travel to Castle Hayne for a home considered a local best buy in real estate the week of April 7

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - This week’s home is about surpassing expectations.

Located at 3912 Lynn Avenue in Castle Hayne, the asking price is $259,900, which works out to a bit over $89 per square foot.

“Frankly, when I see that price point, I expect to see a home that needs a lot of TLC,” says Kathleen Baylies with Just for Buyers Realty. “But you drive up to this property and the first pleasant surprise is the size of the lot."

Scan the house from the outside and you’d never guess it is almost 2,900 square feet. With so much land and space, you have to be a little skeptical about what will greet you when you go inside.

Positives:

  • Wood floors in the main living area;
  • Fashionable tile and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen;
  • A spacious dining room capable of handling a crowd
  • A large master bedroom with a 13 x 6 foot walk in closet with built-in organizers;
  • A second bedroom with its own full bath and a walk-in closet;
  • A large laundry room with extra storage;
  • Lots of extras such as a chandelier in the master bath, space-saving pocket doors and a third full bath

Outside, you’ll find a detached one-car garage, room to park a RV, and if you love fresh eggs for breakfast, there’s a chicken coop just waiting for your hens.

Downsides:

  • With all this space, the home is advertised as having only two bedrooms because — like many homes in this area — it is served by a private septic system and the system is permitted for only two bedrooms.
  • We don’t know the exact age of the roof, but it’s obvious it’s been around for a while.
  • Out back, you have a view of a wireless phone tower.
