Owners' Perspective: Why we love 182 Goldenrod Ln

Seven years ago we were searching for the perfect place to have our new home built. We looked at sites in Clay, Jamesville and Onondaga Hill. Then we found Golden Meadows, the best kept secret in Onondaga County. The lots were a little bigger, allowing for a feeling of spaciousness. The yards were beautifully landscaped, and the feel of a community out in the country was appealing. It was unexpected surprise that we could be in Syracuse in 15 minutes or in Fairmount or Camillus in 10 minutes where there you can find Wegmans, Walmart, Target or Specialty stores.
After moving here we discovered that the residents were just as pleasant as the surroundings. There are annual Christmas parties, get-togethers for the ladies in the neighborhood and occasional block parties. It feels safe here since there is no thru-traffic and the children can play freely. Everyone has great kids who are active in sports or school activities. Be prepared to buy some Girl Scout cookies or other tasty treats to support a local school team!
We put our heart and soul into designing a house that is exquisitely functional and elegant. We made it spacious and bright. There are windows everywhere, including transoms, an atrium door overlooking the large patio (which is surrounded by beautiful, professional landscaping), and a triple-pane decorative glass front door. 9-foot ceilings, the openness of the space, an enlarged island and breakfast bar, a cozy and very convenient gas fireplace, all make the first floor ideal for entertainment. Beautiful hardwoods, chair molding and crown molding make the dining room truly elegant. Top-notch window treatments and top-quality carpeting, as well as high-quality padded vinyl in the kitchen looks like tile but is far more functional, easy to clean and soft on the cook’s feet! And unlike tile, when you accidentally drop a plate, it doesn’t shatter.
The master bedroom upstairs features a walk-in closet for him and another huge walk-in closet for her. You never have to move your seasonal wardrobe to a different room; all your clothes will fit there. The second bedroom features floor-to-ceiling book shelves on both sides of the large double window, with a window seat connecting the two sets of shelves. There is also a walk-in closet for added convenience. The third bedroom has beautiful views and a wall-to-wall closet. There is also a laundry closet nicely nestled between bedrooms 2 and 3. You would never have to take your laundry downstairs and then back up. High-efficiency washer and dryer are just a few short steps away. This is laundry paradise!
We opted for only one full bathroom upstairs so we could make it double the size of a typical bathroom and still have abundant space for bedroom closets and a laundry closet. And who wants to be spending their precious time every week cleaning a second bathroom? The bathroom has two sections that are separated by a door. It is accessible from the master bedroom, as well as the hallway. The first section features a double sink for added practicality and convenience. The second section features a large linen closet, a beautiful rounded window, and a double shower with two shower heads and a hand-held; all this surrounded by beautiful travertine stone and glass doors. Just a piece of paradise for those who love to shower together!
And don’t forget to notice the elegant, upgraded lighting throughout the house, as well as the beautiful tile backsplash in the kitchen, steel appliances and ice-maker. The large basement is ideal as an exercise room, and the double utility sink makes various house projects, including painting, easier to clean up. The basement can also be finished, adding the convenience of an extra 300 square-foot room with a half bath and a shower. The garage is extended by four feet on one side so as to allow for extra parking space and storage. You have enough space to open your car door so you can get out of your car comfortably rather than barely squeeze through. And you don’t have to install a shed in your back yard; everything you would store in a shed will fit conveniently in this large garage. You won’t have to fight the elements to walk to a shed; everything can be stored within easy reach.
The whole architecture of the house with its brick driveway and beautiful landscaping makes it look like a little castle welcoming you to make it your home!
