Just Sold! 3233 Tyrol Road
This beautiful 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home in Derby Downs recently sold in just two days, after receiving seven offers! The winning contract was $50,000 over the asking price! There are several reasons why there was so much interest in this home- great curb appeal, lots of space, great backyard and more. But, much of what makes a house a great place to call home has to do with the neighborhood where it's located. That's clearly the case with this home which is situated on the corner of Tyrol Road and Derby Drive in one of Vestavia's most popular neighborhoods- Derby Downs. There are a number of compelling reasons why Derby Downs is such a great place to live? First, and this is a common denominator among many of the most popular over-the-mountain neighborhoods, the streets are fairly walkable and most are relatively low traffic. When most of the streets in a neighborhood are walkable, a funny thing happens, neighbors get out and walk. And when they do, they meet other neighbors and make connections. Walkable streets also make it easier for kids to play outside and to develop friendships with other kids in the neighborhood. Derby Downs is conveniently located to schools and shopping. Lastly, homes in Derby Downs are relatively affordable. The average sales price of homes sold in Vestavia during the past 12 months is $479,000. During the same timeframe, the average sales price for homes in Derby Downs was $359,000.
