Open House Review: 9 Alba West

Today I am reviewing a desirable single level home in Northwood’s Park Paseo Community.  The home is a zero-lot-line property which is located in a quiet, private location on a small cul-de-sac street.  Unlike other locations, Alba sits at the end of the community, off of where Hicks Canyon dead ends.  With the home backing to Hicks Canyon, the backyard feels more private and serene.  The home would be desirable for a family wanting to be walking distance to the elementary and high school, and biking distance to Sierra Vista Middle School.  Santiago Hills, Sierra Vista Middle School and Northwood High School are designated for this neighborhood.

Asking Price:       $818,888
Bedrooms:          3
Bathrooms:         2
Square Footage: 1,323
Lot Size:               5,200
$/Sq Ft:                $619
Property Type:  Single Family Residence
Year Built:          1980
Community:      Northwood – Park Paseo
HOA dues are $106 per month
