Welcome to Whitney Ridge - a 32 unit complex set way back off of Whitney Avenue in Hamden. Convenient to shopping and highways yet privacy as well. This unit really sparkles - both in cleanliness and in decorating. It is an end unit with a walkout basement - both highly desired in condo living. Both the upstairs and downstairs have wide plank hardwood floors. Unique to this unit is a bar area that is nestled between the living room and kitchen, very open you can see right thru to the kitchen. The bar has glass shelves and pendant lighting which gives it a very cool look. A sweet powder room is located off the kitchen and a french door leads to the walkout lower level. There are many windows throughtout the unit which makes it very light and bright. The kitchen is a classic white kitchen. There is a beverage cooler which stays with the unit. The refrigerator is one month old. Unit is fully applianced including dishwasher, microwave, ovenrange, refrigerator, washer and dryer (located in the lower level). There is a large eating area, big enough for a dining room table. A slider in the kitchen leads to a deck with privacy walls. When the leaves are on the trees, there is privacy from the neighborhood behind. Other great things about this complex are gas heat, it is on the busline and the complex allows any size and breed of dog (very hard to find these days!)Utilities are city water and city sewers, there is central air. The condo fees are $120 a month and there is an assessment of $150 a month for the new Hardie Board siding and reinsulation project that was done in the last year. This is a total of a low $270 per month which is well in line with other condo fees in the area. Taxes are $5089 annually. This location works great for students or staff/faculty at QU or Yale or for anyone who works at any of the other surrounding colleges or hospitals. Although the complex is not FHA approved, our inhouse lender can assist with a 95% loan to value product. Hamden has many great things to offer - Sleeping Giant for hiking, several public golf courses, outdoor summer concerts and fireworks at Meadowbrook, The Linear Trail for running, walking, rollerblading and biking, Hamden Dog Park, Brooksvale Park. There is great shopping here from boutiques to big box stores. Many choices of cuisine and delectable restaurants are found here. Don't you want a change now after this last winter or now that the kids have moved out? Please call for your private showing today!
