In the Oakwood Heights community, we have a gorgeous Side Hall Colonial for sale, at 826 Clawson Street. This elegant home is located on a lovely, tree-lined street right by Clawson Playground and Hylan Boulevard.
When you arrive at the home, you will find an attractive residence with an exterior that is part stucco and part brick, with vinyl siding. This first thing you will see is a stunning, curved staircase, leading to the second floor. Above the staircase is a lovely chandelier, which has a motorized cable for easy cleaning. To the right is a grand living room and dining room combination, with natural light coming through a large picture window and bouncing off the oak floors. Here, you will find recessed lighting, chair rail molding, custom crown and wall molding, a custom paint job, and custom Hunter Douglas blinds. Just from this one area, you can tell that the owners paid extreme attention to detail. Near the staircase, you will find a door to the basement, followed by a coat closet and a laundry room. Toward the back of the house, you will find a spacious eat-in kitchen with cherry cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Next to the kitchen is the family room, which has a gas fireplace and a sliding door leading out to a deck above the backyard. Just like the front lawn, the backyard has been well-maintained and has an in-ground sprinkler system.
Once you reach the second floor of the house, you will find yourself in a hallway with access to a pull-down attic. The first room you will come to is the full bathroom. Across from the bathroom are three generously-sized bedrooms. At the end of the hall, overlooking the backyard, you will find a huge master bedroom with a walk-in closet and its own, four-piece bathroom. This private bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, a custom vanity with a double sink, and a spray shower with a bench.
You can enter the basement by using the staircase near the front of the house, or by entering the garage, which is heated and has tiled flooring. Near the staircase, you will find a couple of closets and a utility room. These are followed by a three-quarter bathroom, which is next to a guest bedroom. Next to the guest bedroom is the family room, which is wired for a projection screen television and has built-in speakers. This home theater also has a door for access to the yard. Throughout the partially above-ground basement, you will find natural light coming through large windows and bouncing off the porcelain flooring.
