Why it’s for sale Crockford, 62, a physical therapist before retiring, says she’s moving to North Carolina to be closer to family.
Crockford says the two-story condo, at 3,100 square feet, is a comfortable home for her and Darla, her Wheaton terrier.
“I love the floor plan and the views,” Cynthia says. “The two-story living room window has a view of the seasonal scene in the front courtyard. From the upstairs loft, I can see out the front and the back. The backyard is breathtaking. Everyone loves it. I created a beautiful Zen oasis with privacy hedges, but you can still see the sloping hills and golf course. There’s also a beautiful fish pond with a waterfall surrounded by a perennial garden with specimen trees. The yard is fenced-in for Darla. ... The inside layout is great for entertaining. The living room, with a gas fireplace, flows into the kitchen-family room. The windows and sliders in the back are brand-new. And the gorgeous custom-made window treatments, including window shades, are staying. The Bose surround sound system is wired for both indoor and out, and that’s also staying. The basement was finished with an Alure basement paneling system, which is mold- and sound-resistant. In the wintertime, that loft is so cozy and comfortable while I watch movies or read as the heat rises from the fireplace ... for Darla and me, this is our haven.”
