“My client had recently sold her family home, and it was an emotional move for her since she raised her children there,” says Melissa Murray of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the buyer’s agent for the property. “She decided that Amberley was the community where she wanted to live and was actually renting a house in the neighborhood while she was looking for a new home.
She was drawn to Amberley because of the incredible water privileges and the wonderful sense of community. At first, she decided against this house because she didn’t want to do too much work. However, she has a good friend who is an architect, and she has great vision. So, she was able to see what the house could become. As soon as she gets settled, she is planning to do a major renovation.”
