17594 Foxtail Drive, a Lake Wildwood 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, well maintained home listed for $319,000

I have looked at a dozen 2-bedroom and 2-bathroom homes this year priced under $300,000, so what makes this one special? For one thing, it is quite large, 1482 sf, which makes it larger than most of the 3-bedroom homes in this same price range! Second, it is on a pancake flat lot that has a flat driveway and flat area near the house for RV parking. The landscaping is very nice, trees and bushes block the street at the front, and make a ring around the rear yard for privacy. It looks very nice, and very different from the typical home in this price range, where there is often little or no landscaping.
The interior of the home is very well maintained. It has hardwood floors, and window seats, wainscoting and good paint. The down side of this home is the floor plan. The is no master bathroom. One guest bedroom serves both bedrooms in the hallway between them, and a second bathroom is on the far side of the kitchen. The bedrooms are huge, and each one has an office or sitting room, so you can have a desk or exercise area in the bedroom. When I look at a home like this, with all the nice upgrades and good condition, I certainly think it would be a great home for the right person, but in terms of resale, or even renting, this home is not ideal. The floor plan is a tough sell regardless of the price per square foot, or the great condition.
