Classic 4-sided 4 bedroom Red Brick home in Gated Lafayette Oaks! This is an absolutely beautfiul four sided brick home in Lafayette Oaks, one of the most distinguished and definately the oldest gated community in Tallahassee. No one is Lafayette Oaks has a yard smaller than 3/4 of an acre and some people have 2 full acres. That is unheard of in today's new neighborhoods. The neighborhood has two gated entrances and a special vendor entrance. They also have a beautiful community pool, tennis courts, and a newer playground. The community garden is located to the left of the road going to the playground. Lafayette Oaks is certanly a neighborhood of choice on the eastside of Tallahassee. At 5428 Touraine Drive, the yard is just over an acre with gorgeous Japanese magnolia, camellia, azalea, pear, and pecan trees. Right now, the tea olive trees smell amazing. From the double front door entry, there is an exposed beam foyer and coat closet with a formal living on the left and a formal dining on the right. A well placed half bath so guests don't need to travel the bedroom wing of the home. A true family room, that currently feels just like grandmother's house, is open to the eat-in kitchen with views of the back yard and easy access to the oversized 2 car garage with central vac. In the family room, there is one wall with paneling, a gorgeous brick fireplace with chunky wood mantle, and a large kitchen with a roomy pantry, loads of counterspace, and an eat-in kitchen with perfectly placed diamond bay windows to see everything happening in the backyard. Down the hall are four roomy bedrooms and 2 full baths, both with double sinks, and both with a separate toilet/shower area. No laundry closet...this is a full sized laundry room and it's conveniently located near the bedrooms, which makes SOOOO much since. The main bedroom has TWO walk-in closets, which is unheard of in the 1980s. The home is priced at about $175/sf, which is $50-$75/sf lower than a home with new lighting, flooring, appliances, cabinets, countertops, and paint. The home is COMPLETELY move-in ready for someone who loves the paneling, the wood trim, the red brick fireplace, the kitchen bar, the carpet, the cool foyer tile, and the bold 1980s lighting choices. So, you decide...steal a gorgeous, one story, no steps home in beautiful Lafayette Oaks for $425K or take the time to do all the updates and have an absolute show piece.
