Open House Review: 24 League

Driving up Culver and turning on Farwell, the street automatically turns into League. This home is towards the end of the street, past the post office, so the amount of traffic is minimal. As the largest model offered, it has a desirable bedroom on ground level and three bedrooms upstairs. It also offers a private backyard large enough to entertain. Although an Irvine address, students would attend Tustin School District’s Hicks Canyon Elementary School, Orchard Hills School and Beckman High School.

Open House Review: 65 Lakepines

This home is the largest plan in the Lakes Community of Northwood and has a rare attached two car garage. It is a two level townhouse with kitchen, dining area and living room downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs with a jack-and-jill bathroom. I have reviewed the same layout at 180 Pineview which sold in the summer for $437,888. That model had more upgrades in the bathrooms, but 65 Pineview opened up the kitchen wall and created a modern, open first floor.

Asking Price:  $475,000
Bedrooms:  2
Bathrooms:  1.5
