In the market for a lake home in Alexandria on its Chain of Lakes? Check out this lake home that will be available for showings starting this Friday. It is in the MLS as of today with a status of ‘Coming Soon’. If you aren’t familiar with this, you aren’t alone. It is new to the Greater Alexandria Area MLS. [UPDATE : UNDER CONTRACT CONTINGENT ON FINANCING AS OF 1/30/2021]
The rules regarding the status are strict when the status is ‘Coming Soon’. No showings or previews by agents are allowed before the ‘active’ date (for this listing the ‘active’ date is Friday, January 29th). It probably is frustrating for a potential buyer that is available to look ASAP. The reality though is most potential lakefront buyers aren’t currently within a two hour one-way drive to Lake Darling. The ‘Coming Soon’ period allows for people to make plans to visit Alexandria and take a look and it is in the owner’s interest to have as much exposure as possible to get the best possible sale price.
Here are a few photos and more are available within the listing. Note the aerial that shows Lake Alvin in the rear and the channel to it from Lake Darling. If you like quiet, this is a good place to be. Most days the only car traffic will be to and from the homes at this end of Casa Marina (very few). Also notice the lack of darkness in the aerial photo from last July. I know Darling and know this shoreline. A+.
Most will consider this home turn-key. Haabala Construction (A+) did most of the work and the buyer will be starting life at The Chain in what is practically a new home.
NOTE: If internet speed is important, Charter Spectrum offers up to 970 Mbps down speeds. They also offer cable tv and phone. The home has a natural gas connection (CenterPoint) and is connected to city sewer. There is a private well and in the utility room of the home is a water filtration system.
