Reason for Selling:

“After approximately 33 years of being blessed with this home where we raised our children, we (the Owners) are building a new retirement home that will be ready in the Spring of 2016 when this home will be available to occupy by the Buyers (we’ve decided not to do a double move).  We have been “Empty-Nesters” for many years now and have invested large amounts  (greater than $60,000 in updates since 2007) in preparation for a future fixed income retirement.  But now we have changed course and decided to build a new home for retirement that has less stair climbing for us.”

Some of the Many Highlights Include: 

  • Cambria USA Quartz Counter-Tops & Back-Splash
  • Mannington Black Forrest Oak Laminate Flooring
  • Heritage Thunder Grey Marble –3 Sheets – Tub to Ceiling
  • Rosati Windows Throughout
  • Blind Factory Blinds Throughout
  • Rosati Outside Doors
  • Bryant 95s Energy Efficient Furnace:  our usage ~ $76/Month Budget
  • Gas Fireplace with Sassafras Logs Operated with Remote
  • Priced to Sell – The home was built in 1982.  The home was purchased by the current Owner from the original owner in 1983 for $64,900. The home includes an expansion (Den + Screened-in Porch) that was added in 1990 for approximately $20,000.  The Priced to Sell Listing includes over $60,000 of “Updates Galore” invested since 2007 in preparation for our future fixed-income retirement – see the Updates Galore Page at this site. 
  • Lots of First Floor Space – Tons of First Floor Living Space – includes a  Den (room addition).  See below graphic– Approx. 545 SQ FT of living space (internal dimensions) in just these three rooms (Living-RM, Family-RM, and Den).  Other homes costing way more don’t have this much living space on the first floor.  Also see INFO page at this site for SQ FT info from the County’s website.


  • Highly-Rated Hilliard Schools – and a Value Tax Base for a long time, established neighborhood considering highly rated schools and compared to New Builds.   Taxes are ~$368 Taxes/Month for this 3BR, 2 Story Home, which, in general, is in-line with Golfview Woods homes. Public records show that  the owner’s 3 BR, 2 Story home has property taxes that are approx. $200-$600 per year lower than 4BR, 2.5 Bath, 2 Stories on Bigby Hollow Ct.,  which is generally consistent with the residential tax base in the vicinity.  With 6 months of research in 2015, the Owner compared  their $4413/yr tax rate with real estate tax rates for New Builds and found that tax rates could be on the order of approx. 2X (Twice) or more for New Builds of similar magnitude and features that were in Columbus’s western hemisphere suburbs where the highly-rated school systems were a large part of driving this type of tax premium for New Builds.
