Open House Review: 75 Kimbal

Today I am reviewing one of two Open Houses on Kimbal.  They are both the same model but 75 Kimbal is priced lower, reasonably so, since this home does not have as many of the upgrades found in the other model. Let’s explore this property first.

The basics:
Asking Price: $1,300,000
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 4
Square Footage: 2,650
$/Sq Ft: $ 491
Property Type: Single Family Residence
Year Built: 2015
Community: Stonegate
HOA: $120/month
Mello Roos: Yes

Upon entering, a wide hallway leads to the back of the home.  A small hallway juts off to the right, consisting of the garage entrance, bathroom and bedroom.  A lower cabinet sits next to the garage entrance, which makes a nice place to store your keys, wallet or things you want out of site, but accessible the way in/out.  The coat closet is located to the left of the front door, next to the staircase.


The bathroom has a single large sink, white cabinetry and a larger shower for a downstairs bathroom.  I like how the shower is roomier than a stall shower and the ceilings are high, not making it feel like a bathroom they simply tried to squeeze in.  It is in excellent, clean condition.

The downstairs bedroom is larger too, with high ceilings and a 3 door sliding closet.  This would make a great office, guest room, playroom or game room.  The carpet is basic, but clean.

The great room consists of the kitchen, living room, dining area and the optional conservatory.  The living room is located to left, with a large opening into the conservatory. Currently they have the conservatory set up as the formal dining area, while a casual eating area sits between the living room and kitchen.  Tile flooring flows seamlessly throughout the first floor.  Floor to ceiling windows and a set of glass French doors provide ample light into the conservatory and area.

Interestingly enough, this model does not have a fireplace.  Instead, the extra wall space provides a living room with multiple options to layout furniture.

The kitchen has an island with space for bar seating, white cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.  There are plenty of cabinets for storage and ample counter space.   A large pantry sits in the corner, providing an abundance of extra storage and ease.

A casual eating area sits in between the kitchen and living room.  In the model I’ll be reviewing next week, they used this space for their dining room, while the conservatory was used as a sitting area.

A set of glass French doors that lead to the backyard is found off of the conservatory.  The back patio is hardscaped with some plants lining the back wall.  There is a narrow area that could fit a small table and bar-b-que.  The optional conservatory takes up part of the original yard space, but there is still some space to enjoy the outdoors. However, the space lacks any grass.

After walking up the carpeted stairs, the carpet flows throughout the hallway and bedrooms.  Built-in double desks with drawers are found on the landing.  Two large windows sit in front of each desk.

Off a small nook to the left is the master bedroom.  It is a standard size room with high ceilings and multiple windows. Through a door opening is the master bathroom.  It currently lacks a privacy door, but it looks like one can easily be added.  Without a privacy door, noise and light may affect someone who is still in the bedroom.  Natural light comes into the bathroom through the window above the soaking.  Next to the soaking tub is a shower.  Across the bathroom is the large walk-in closet and also a separate toilet with a set of cabinets above.  Dual vanity sits along the back wall.  It is in clean, excellent condition.

Past the dual desks are a large linen cabinet and a perpendicular hallway.  At each of the hallway is a bedroom with an attached bathroom.  A laundry room sits in between them.  Both bedrooms are similar in size and each comes with a 3 door sliding door closet.  Each bathroom has standard white countertops and cabinetry.  A small window sits along the wall where the tub/shower combo is located.  The bathrooms are basic but in clean, great condition.


Side by side appliances can fit in the laundry room.  A set of upper cabinets sit above the appliances and a sink area with lower cabinets, as well as an upper shelf sits next to the appliances. I like how a small window brings in natural light into the space.

The home is in move-in condition. It is great for a young family or even a household with older children, who can appreciate their own bathrooms.  It is walking distance to the elementary school, parks and amenities.
