Set behind an unassuming privacy fence and garage at 745 Lakeview Avenue sits a landscaped courtyard and entrance to a renovated 672-square-foot, two-bedroom cottage.
The home’s remodeled kitchen has been outfitted with Sub-Zero and Thermador appliances, Caesarstone counters and Kona-finished cabinetry. Its bathroom sports an original tub surrounded by new subway tiles. And through one of its bedrooms one reaches the deck.
From the deck, one can step down to a second deck and garden, which has been planted with over 35 varietals of roses, watered by way of a remote irrigation system fed by a 250-gallon rain barrel. It is a product that anyone can undertake with the correct tools, and the know-how for this type of building project. And if they aren’t sure, there are local contractors who can give expert advice whenever they need it, such as whether they should use galvanised gun nails and staples when building their deck and what kind of decking boards would be a good fit. The Decking is an excellent feature for a garden. Not only does it add another outdoor area for the homeowner, decking is also easier to maintain than a grass area. Of course, decking may need a composite batten to keep it in good condition. To understand more about the benefits of decking battens, it might be worth visiting a website similar to https://www.thecompositedecking.co.uk/joist/low-profile-composite-batten/, for example. It’s no wonder that this home has decking, it can make a garden look much nicer.
And while the potted roses aren’t technically fixtures of the property, they can be written into the sale of 745 Lakeview – which has just hit the market priced at $898,000 – “if [the] buyer can lovingly care for them.”
