MERIDEN — Have you had it?
Really had it with mowing the lawn when it's hot, humid, and the mosquitoes are hovering? Have you had it with shoveling snow and getting a sore back and a miserable disposition for all your trouble? Well, say "goodbye" to that and say "hello" to a home with no more mowing or shoveling and some creature comforts.
The cape-style condominium home at 10 Woodland Ridge Unit #59 is not for everyone because it's only 1,350 square feet, but they've managed to pack a lot into it.
It's free standing, quiet and located at the end of a cul-de-sac. It would be good as a starter home, one for empty-nesters or someone at any age who doesn't want to have to manage a big home and still enjoy all the perks of home ownership.
There's a total of six rooms, including three bedrooms and one and a half baths. The first level has an applianced kitchen, a dining room and living room. The below grade basement area is partially finished with brand new wall to wall carpeting and could be used as a family room, media/play room, or even another bedroom. More creature comforts include central air-conditioning, a fireplace, a one-car attached garage, and a private deck, backyard and driveway.
The home, built in 1988, is heated by electric hot air and is connected to public water and sewer. It is about three-tenths of a mile from Nathan Hale Elementary School and about a mile from Washington Middle School.
But best of all, the home owners association takes care of all your exterior maintenance, including the lawn, roof, siding and snow removal.
The list price is $200,000. The association fee is $315 a month, according to the online listing, and the most recent annual taxes are $3,401 annually.
