Selecting a home is a process for many potential buyers. The property must feature both practical and aesthetic value to be desirable to an individual for them to decide to put a bid in. A home in Somers Point, that overlooks the Greate Bay Country Club is gaining the attention of potential buyers because of the practical and beautiful features it contains.
Press of Atlantic City reported that the home was initially built in 1980s, but has undergone many renovations and additions. Now, the property spans 3,800 square feet and contains five bedrooms, two bathrooms and three half baths. It has grown from a modest split level into a jewel in the residential neighborhood. 
The property is in a secluded corner of the community because it overlooks the golf course. The current owner claims that the location of the home is what makes it so attractive, according to the news source.
Inside the home, a radiant floor heating system works to keep the home warm when the temperatures drop overnight or during the winter. It was an effective utility option because it relies on less oil or natural gas than a traditional heating system - allowing for a reduction in heating costs. Because of the location of the home, a radiant floor heating system was a more effective choice. Even though the heat is only turned on during certain months and nights and temperatures rarely drop to freezing levels, heating is required. However, a traditional system takes time to turn on and warm up - it also can push fine particulate matter and irritants like dust and pollen around a house that have been stored in the under-used vents. A radiant floor heating system can turn on immediate, is silent and doesn't push around dirty air - the ideal solution for a home in a warm climate.
