The price has been reduced from $810,000 to $795,000 and on January 13, the price was further reduced to $765,000 and received an offer.  It is in turn-key condition and one nice advantage is the home does not share any common walls and has a small outdoor patio space.  The home is slated for Woodbury Elementary and Jeffrey Trails Middle School.

There are two distinct models, along with a 2X variation that, like the X models in Jade and Somerset, includes a third-floor loft and covered deck. Julep is located south of Cadence and east of Beacon, just north of the new neighborhood park, Parasol Park. There will be 48 homes ranging from 1,734 – 2,131 square feet. The condos will be built in groups of four around a shared motor court. All homes have three bedrooms and range from 2.5 – 3 bathrooms. Each also has a two-car garage.

Open House Review: 117 Thornhurst

Today I am reviewing the Santa Maria, Plan 2 model of Stonegate at 117 Thornhurst.  Unlike other properties I have reviewed, this home’s front door looks out to the greenbelt and out to Jeffrey.  It provides an open, private view from the front door, with trail access just a few doors down.  The only downfall is that it was a bit of walk from street parking to the front door.  From the street, accessing the front door lead you down the aisle of garages, turning left on the sidewalk and walking past several other homes before coming to this property.   The home was listed in November at $674,888.  Although the home is not highly upgraded, like other Santa Maria Plan 2’s that I’ve reviewed, the unique view and privacy may be the reason for the higher price.

The basics:
Asking Price:   $659,888
Bedrooms:       2
Bathrooms:      2.5
Square Footage: 1,583
$/Sq Ft:            $429
Property Type: Condominium
Year Built:       2013
Community:     Stonegate
HOA:               $324/month

Parasol Park: New Neighborhood Review

The Great Park’s newest neighborhood, Parasol Park, opened several new collections in December. The next few collections are slated to open in mid-January. Parasol Park is between Cadence (at the south end of Beacon Park) and Great Park Boulevard, with most homes planned to be on the east side of Ridge Valley. The entire neighborhood will have over 725 homes, all of which are condominiums (some attached, some detached).  There will be ten different home collections, though they haven’t announced a name or builder for the 10th, which is supposed to open in the spring.
