Open House Review: 72 Navigator

Coming into Woodbury, 72 Navigator sits nicely at the end of a cul-de-sac street.  It is in turn-key condition with many upgrades.  Last month a 4 bedroom with a loft, on the same street, sold for 1,160,000. For a three bedroom home that backs to Trabuco, let’s see if the home is priced fairly for the neighborhood?  The home had a price reduction from its July listing of $1,039,888.

Open House Review 29 Milazzo

I am reviewing a home today in Northwood’s Vista Filare Community.  The home has been nicely upgraded and is walking distance to the middle school and Venta Spur Trail. The property backs to Sierra Vista’s track and field.  It is a zero-lot-line property but with the high ceilings, bright rooms, and upgrades, it did not occur to me that it was a zero-lot line.

Beacon Park – Harper Collection Review

The Harper Collection at Beacon Park includes three different detached condominiums. Built by Lennar, there will be a total of 84 homesites. The homes are just across the street from the neighborhood park and diagonally across from the planned K-8 school. These look like traditional single family homes, with the garages facing the main street, rather than having a motorcourt behind the condos. The homes range from 3-4 bedrooms and from 1,693 – 2,019 square feet. There are three different building elevations for each model, including Contemporary Spanish, Art Deco and Contemporary.

Beacon Park – Ellwood Collection Review

The Ellwood Collection in Beacon Park is another group of single family, detached condominiums. There will be 71 condos built by Richmond American Homes. The collection is located at the south end of the neighborhood, but still a short walk from the planned K-8 school. There is a proposed neighborhood park adjacent to the Ellwood homes. The homes come standard with four bedrooms and at least three bathrooms; they range from 2,050 – 2,300 square feet. Each model has three elevations, including Craftsman, Mid-Century Modern, and Spanish Colonial.
