WALLINGFORD —  A 3,325-square-foot home with a large in-law apartment and mountain view recently went on the market for $429,900.

The split-level, hi-ranch home at 37 Valley View Drive features a backyard view of Beseck Mountain, home to Powder Ridge Mountain Park in Middlefield.

“The view is just a million-dollar view for a fraction of the cost,” said listing agent Natuzza Dimasi, of William Raveis Real Estate, on Friday. “It’s a very picturesque view.”

Built in 1984, the house has six bedrooms, all with hardwood floors, four full bathrooms,  formal dining room, two living rooms, family room, two eat-in kitchens, fireplace and central air conditioning.

Outside, there’s a two-car attached garage, above-ground pool and deck. The lot size is 1.05 acres.

In-law apartment

A two-bedroom in-law apartment takes up the lower level, complete with its own entrance.

“A lot of people do in-law apartments without acquiring the permits,” she said, “but this is completely, 100 percent in-law with its own entrance, kitchen, living room, closets, two bedrooms, so it makes it much more desirable.”

“It’s a big benefit for people to have an in-law,” she added, “and with Wallingford’s low electric rates, the cost is extremely reasonable.”

The house also has attic space. Water comes from a private well.

The property is assessed at $233,000 and annual taxes are approximately $6,801.

The house has been on the market for less than a month. An open house is scheduled for 1-3 p.m. Aug. 4.
