Finishing a basement can be a game-changer for homeowners looking to enhance their property’s value. This renovation not only expands the usable living space but also significantly boosts the home’s market appeal. On average, homeowners in the United States can expect a return on investment (ROI) of about 70 to 75% from a finished basement. Such a project adds flexible spaces that can serve various purposes – from a family room or a home theater to an additional bedroom or home office.
For potential buyers, a finished basement is often a major draw, offering them ready-to-use additional space that is adaptable to their needs. This extra square footage, effectively utilized, transforms a previously underused area into a functional and attractive component of the home, making it a smart financial decision for long-term property value enhancement.
This is precisely the case with this on-the-market Roswell, GA home. Located in Roswell’s prestigious Lake Charles Plantation neighborhood, this custom-built home was designed around family living and spans over 7,000 square feet.
As soon as you step onto the welcoming front porch, you’ll feel that classic Georgian charm. The home’s interior, with its soaring ceilings and spacious rooms, strikes a balance between airy, light-filled spaces and down-home warmth. The entryway, with its stunning chandelier and elegant staircase, offers a taste of signature Southern style without overdoing it.
The open floor plan flows from the two-story great room into the gorgeous, gourmet chef’s kitchen with crisp white cabinetry, quartz countertops, and high-end stainless appliances.
Designed with entertainment in mind, the home boasts a large dining room for formal occasions and a great room for casual gatherings, both connecting to the spacious patio and backyard. Upstairs you’ll find the master bedroom, and three roomy secondary bedrooms.
The fully finished basement level adds a number of flexible living spaces, and comes complete with a kitchenette, media room, game room, and an extra bedroom. Currently outfitted as an entertainment lounge with wet bar and wine fridge, this 1000+ square foot lower level could easily be transformed into a secondary living room or spacious in-law suite.
Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the garage’s extra space for a golf cart, perfect for quick trips to Canton Street’s bustling shops and eateries.
