Meticulous Colonial in Desirable Terramere Community

12 Whitman Common, Slingerlands, NY 12159

$399,900 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 (2 full, 1 half) Bathrooms | 2,264 Square Feet

Enjoy the best of both worlds with maintenance-free living paired with the privacy of a meticulous single-family home. This gorgeous colonial is situated on a quiet courtyard in the desirable Terramere neighborhood, just off of New Scotland Road/Rt. 85. This location provides easy access to Albany hospitals, universities, and just minutes to shopping, post office, doctor’s office and major highways.

As you step inside, you’re greeted with a soaring two-story foyer and lovely open floor plan with 9′ ceilings. The first floor shines with beautiful hardwood floors or tile, added recessed lighting, decorative columns, and custom wide trim and extensive crown molding throughout.

To the right of the entry is a light-filled den/office with French door and transom, cathedral ceiling and large custom window. The spacious great room is stunning and features a cozy gas fireplace that will even heat the home in the case of a very rare power outage.

The kitchen was recently updated in 2012 including gorgeous granite counters with breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances (brand new microwave and disposal). The eating area of the kitchen is filled with light, situated next to the sliding glass doors that walk out to the 16×16 low-maintenance Trex composite deck perfect for relaxing and entertaining.

The first floor is also host to a convenient half bathroom, and separate laundry room with utility sink and cabinets. The over-sized two-car garage is insulated and provides ample parking out of the elements plus storage space.

A gracious staircase leads to a comfortable second floor with newer luxury carpeting throughout (2012) and three bedrooms plus two full bathrooms. There are double doors that open to the spacious master suite with walk-in closet and master bathroom, which hosts a new tiled shower, double vanity, skylight and soaker tub.

The full and very dry basement is well-equipped with a new Bryant 97% efficient natural gas furnace (with warranty still in place) and Bryant air conditioner, new Navien tankless hot water heater, Spectrum or Fios Internet options, an electronics distribution panel, plentiful storage space, and a rarely-needed sump pump with Jet Pump backup system. There is even a 200 amp electric service panel with a whole house surge protector for added peace of mind.

Everything has been thought of for you, including custom Levelor 2″ blinds throughout, neutral paint colors throughout, custom closet systems, Spectrum security system in place, and a new Nest smart thermostat installed.

The Home Owner’s Association fees are $325 per month and covers all snow removal from driveways and walkways, garden bed edging, mulching, weeding and plant care, lawn fertilization, mowing and sprinkler maintenance and water usage, trash/recycling collection, private road maintenance and neighborhood street lights.

There is truly nothing left to do but unpack your bags and enjoy all that this stunning home and the Terramere neighborhood have to provide.
