House for sale


Blue Oaks is a subdivision adjacent to ours on Ocala's east side. I've always thought this a beautiful home and noticed the other day it was up for sale. Out front is a small box containing informational papers about the house. We learned the asking price is $318,000.

It's been on the market for several weeks now, and I doubt they'll get that much in today's market, but I expect it will sell because it is a fine residence and located on a cul-de-sac in a wooded area.

I'm not so sure about the prices there but that residential place looks kOoL to me.

What a nice house. At 300+ it would go fast out here. Housing seems awful high out here still although the market is down. but people are still buying.

I like watching the goslings and even as teenagers they caused no trouble. A few to many after hours beach parties but nothing too out of hand. MB

Interesting...a house this nice in a neighbourhood this beautiful would probably list for over $350,000 here. Perhaps we should move to Florida. :)

une belle maison, je me rends pas compte si elle est cher, mais j'aime bien cette architecture.

a nice house, I am not if it is expensive, but I like this architecture.

It's a given that would be snapped up overnight here. Agree its a nice place and a steal by our standards.

It looks a very nice house! With this money here you can buy only a not-so-large two bedroom apartment in a quite good zone. Quite.

Asta said...

It's a very beautiful house. Looks as if there is a nice garden as well-?
This is the type of house that would make me consider to buy.

Antjas said...

Could be just around the corner. Sure you weren't in Massachusetts over the weekend?

Dear Jacob,
What a beautiful house!
I assume that there is a nice garden as well?
- This is definately a house that I would consider to buy. Wonderful-:)

Looks like it could be in any town in the north.

@ Antjas...once you get out of South Florida, you'll find a variety of types of homes...

Halcyon said...

That is a beautiful home. $318k sounds like a good price to me. I think you could get that here in Jackson - depending on the square footage and the condition. But it looks like it's been well-loved.

Jacob said...

@ Becky...in today's market, I think they'll be lucky to get 250-275 for it. It is big with 4 bedrooms...I'd guess over 2500 sq. ft.

Christopher Raun Leth said...

This looks and seems like a bargain to me. A great house for sure.

Once again thanks for the award, Jacob. I'm grateful for your support:-)

Encouraging to hear the FL market is indeed picking up; anyone want a nice 2 bedroom 1.5 bath, screened in Florida room .. ground floor .. reserved parking steps from your door .. Century Village East in Deerfield Beach ..

Lois said...

It's very pretty! I like the roof. My daughter and son-in-law have had their house on the market since March. It's tough to sell a house right now.

JM said...

It's beautiful! Hope someone will take care of it soon.

Tricia said...

Niiice house! Very pretty photo of it, too!

Marie Reed said...

It looks so comfy cozy! I wouldn't mind moving in that's for sure!

cieldequimper said...

Oh it's beautiful. And so cheap. Well, that's for Paris/Versailles standards... ;-)

Rose said...

That looks like a lovely home!

Mary Helen said...

Beautiful!

It amazes me how much these houses look like New England. My parents live in Rhode Island for 9 years and these houses could be their neighbors. Very nice looking place.

Thanks for your Service in the US Navy and nice to meet you. I have relation in Ocala, but have not seen them in many years.

Joy said...

That's a very good looking house. I wouldn't mind a peek inside.

WOW What a beautiful house. For me this is a mansion because it was soo big and looks clean too. I love green grass a lot. Wish I could afford the price too.
