The owner has taken precious care of the home and added very nice upgrades that no one would complain about.  The stainless steel appliances in the kitchen are a year old including a top of the line 5-burner gas range.  The wood laminate beneath your feet are a gorgeous and durable Brazilian cherry laid throughout the entire home except the utility room.  Solar screens have been added to keep the home cool even on the hottest summer day.  In regards to maintenance items, the water heater was just replaced in 2014, and the water softener, garage door opener, and HVAC system were all serviced also in 2014.  You might be able to find a lower maintenance home in Sun City, but that would mean purchasing a brand new home.  You can have something similar for $165,000 and have money left over to travel.

If you like spending time outside, this is the home for you. Sitting directly in front of Summers Park, this 1,598 sf home has a park view from the front and a view of trees from the back.  The patio is custom built with a beautiful gable overlooking the stone patio that is larger than the size of most living rooms.  The stones were hand picked and laid in a curvaceous form with a nice stone wall exterior for safety or sitting.  Two large outdoor ceiling fans and large mature trees keep the back cool even in the dead heat of summer and the two custom water features will make you feel like vacation is just one step away from the kitchen. The privacy is unmatched as your neighbors are hidden in the trees. There is plenty of space to host all your friends and family as you enjoy the sunsets and moonlight together.

Keeping Your Cool This Summer

With temperatures already in the 90s it’s sure to be a hot summer! Here are some tips to help you keep cool in the upcoming months:

 

Inside your home: The average home spends hundreds of dollars a year on energy costs. But there are ways you can lower your energy bills. Cutting back unnecessary energy use is an easy way to reduce energy consumption while saving money. Here are some suggestions you can do at home at absolutely no cost to you.

  • Turn up your thermostat

Set your thermostat to 78 degrees when you are home and 85 degrees or off when you are away. Using ceiling or room fans allows you to set the thermostat higher because the air movement will cool the room. Always take into account health considerations and be sure to drink plenty of fluids in warm weather.

 

  • Use your appliances wisely

Avoid running your appliances during peak hours, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

 

  • Replace air conditioner filters

Dirty filters restrict airflow and can cause the system to run longer, increasing energy use. Replace filters monthly for maximum benefit.

 

  • Plug your home’s leaks

Weather-strip, seal, and caulk leaky doors and windows and install foam gaskets behind outlet covers.

 

Outside your home:  Community pools and splash pads can be a fun, kid-friendly, and cost-effective way to get out of the house and cool off.  There are plenty of community pools available where you live.

  • Round Rock
