As we begin the new year, we expect to see new listings come on over the next couple months in the Foothill School attendance area. Below are some best buys as we begin 2011.
Most recently, we have seen 4912 La Ramada come on the market. Built by Paul Greene in 1962 and almost 1700 sq ft. It is a fixer with a usuable floorplan with several permitted additions including a spacious sun room off the dining area, solarium off the master bedroom, and a third garage space perfect for a workshop. Has a huge .35 acre flat lot that is one of the largest in the tract - must see! Priced at $749,000.
4973 La Gama is another Paul Greene built home featuring 3 beds and 2 baths. Another unusaully large lot of .32 acres with mature fruit trees, beautiful bonsai gardens, koi pond and a custom built covered patio w/ built in barbecue for entertaining. The back yard has a lawn off the patio and then a large orchard above and behind the lawn area. The spacious home features an open kitchen w/ breakfast area, dining living room with rock fireplace. Also dated but fairly clean. Priced at $799,000.
748 Dos Hermanos is a spacious detached home located in the private Villa San Marcos. This three bedroom, two a half bath home is ideally located on a quiet cul de sac. Nice outdoor patio area, vaulted ceilings, fireplace, French doors off dining area attached two car garage. Nicely landscaped throughout, open greenbelt areas the tennis courts are located just across the way all this and affordable HOA dues. Priced at $685,000.
Additionally, there is one For Sale by Owner which is priced at $820,000 on Walnut Park where the owner is cooperating with agents. My take on the property is somewhere in the mid-7's and owner relays that she is negotiable.
Another property that should be coming on the market in the next month or two is a remodeled home on Pintura drive - probably priced around $740,000. It is a 4 bed/2 bath with cathedral ceilings and a great master addition. Very private on a good size lot.
Lastly, there are a couple short sales - some currently under contract - but w/o lender approval. It will be interesting to see if these actually get approved or go through the foreclosure process.
