Whether your monthly book club meeting is always at your home or you have handfuls of teenagers taking up your valuable couch space and cleaning out your fridge on the weekends, 8 Ivanhoe Circle on the Eastside of Greenville is an entertainer’s delight and a home you should not pass by without taking a look!
From the time you walk in the front door, you will be amazed by just how much room you have to spread out and enjoy the company of others. There is a two level recreation room on the front of the house with gorgeous hardwood floors. Let’s think about this for a minute. Here is the space.
And while the possibilities are limitless, here are four ways you could utilize this space to entertain friends and family:
- FOR PARENTS & KIDS: You can put all the kid’s toys on the top level and keep them entertained for hours while you work in your home office on the bottom
- FOR THE TEENAGERS: Utilize both areas with a Pool Table, Television, maybe an arcade game, couches, and TV’s to keep the teenagers occupied and off your living room couch…until they get hungry 🙂
- FOR THE BOOK CLUB: While there is a dining area that opens to the kitchen where your book club can gather, you can opt to enjoy dinner in the formal dining room where you’ll have enough room for a large dining room table, china cabinet, and buffet. Once it’s time to discuss that book, your friends can head over to the living room sitting area…away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house
- FOR THE OVERNIGHT GUESTS: Disclaimer, I am no builder, but to my laymen eye, if you need additional bedrooms to entertain out of town guests, you may be able to add some doors, frame out a closet, and have yourself one or two more bedrooms for your out of town visitors
If you’re more of a stand around the kitchen island type of entertainer, then you’re in luck! 8 Ivanhoe Circle has one of those too…and lots of other granite counter top space! The best part about this entertainer’s delight is that the backside of the house is as great as the front.
The kitchen opens to a dining area, which opens to the living room with one of the most beautiful rock fireplaces I have ever seen, which opens to a spacious sun room.
Talk about room for friends and family to mill about. And, if it is nice outside, the two sets of sliding glass doors open to a spacious deck overlooking the backyard. I have visited this home for bunco, birthday parties, and other celebratory occasions and never once did I feel claustrophobic from lack of space and abundance of people. AND, it’s all one story, so no running up and down from the bonus room to the kitchen!
In case being an entertainer’s delight isn’t enough of a reason to buy 8 Ivanhoe Circle in Greenville, here are six more reasons to consider this as your next home:
Many of the big ticket items have already been taken care of for you at 8 Ivanhoe Circle! A new roof was put on in 2009 and since purchasing this home, the sellers have replaced the Water Heater, Heating & Air System, the Deck, and added Granite to the kitchen island so it matches the quality of the other kitchen counter tops. That means you can spend your extra money on any cosmetic changes you want to make that will make this house your home.
Have you seen that backyard? If not, LOOK…
It’s beautiful and perfect for a game of pick up football with the kids or a family volleyball tournament during a summer picnic. Got dogs? The yard is partially fenced, so there is plenty of room for them inside the fence and the kids outside. It’s like your own little oasis and the best part is that 8 Ivanhoe Circle is one of the few places on the Eastside of Greenville that you’ll get almost a full acre of cleared land when you purchase a home.
I love a barn. They are so rustic and full of SPACE! This two story barn offers so much storage you won’t know what to do with yourself, AND IT HAS POWER! You can park a car downstairs and your stuff upstairs or make the downstairs yet another place for entertaining. Either way, it’s almost 300 of additional square footage to utilize as you see fit…and that’s just plain awesome!
8 Ivanhoe Circle is zoned for Lake Forest Elementary School, Northwood Middle School (both of my girls were Knights!), and Eastside High School (my oldest daughter is an Eagle Alumni!). Not familiar with the schools around Greenville? Ask anyone who has lived in Greenville for any amount of time and any one of these schools will be on a top ten list of school zones in which they would prefer to live.
The Eastside of Greenville covers a rather large area, but it is in the proximity of many great things. If you need to get the kids off the couch and away from 8 Ivanhoe Circle, you can send them to Butler Springs Park or Timmons Park. If it’s cold outside, have them head for the ice skating rink at the Pavilion Rec Complex. Is shopping is more their speed, Haywood Mall is only about 10 minutes away (assuming it’s not Christmas time 😉 as is the beautiful sights and shops in Downtown Greenville!
In 2015, FEMA revisited the Flood Maps across the country and during that re-visitation, they decided that 8 Ivanhoe Circle, along with much of the rest of the popular Rosewood community should be placed in a flood zone. I know, that the preconception is that flood zone = flood insurance = big bucks! Well, not really! Flood zone = Flood Insurance, but the current owners only pay an additional $44.50/month. That’s equivalent to one nice dinner for two each month. To help you ease into the thought of having flood insurance, the sellers of 8 Ivanhoe Circle have decided to PAY YOUR FIRST YEAR OF FLOOD INSURANCE!!! You read that right, EMAIL ME for details!
