Open House Review: 6 Quebrada

Today I saw 6 Quebrada, a single level house in Windstream’s gated community. The home is nicely situated on a quiet cul-de-sac street just down the street from the button-coded gate entry. Windstream is divided into three gated sections so it limits the amount of car traffic although pedestrian traffic is not limited between the sections. 6 Quebrada is found in one of the smaller portions that consist of 2 short cul-de-sac streets and just steps from the community pool and Hicks Canyon Trail.

Asking Price: $950,000
Bedrooms: 4

It is an even shorter walk to the community park and swimming pool. This is a much more upscale home than the last one I visited, with a very formal feeling throughout the house. Continue reading

Open House Review: 4 Diamonte

4 Diamante is located on an internal neighborhood street that is one of the only streets that is not a cul-de-sac street, but it bridges between two cul-de-sac streets.   This home sits next to a walking trail and has no direct neighbor to one side, and a green area bordering the backyard. The home would appeal to any family looking to be walking distance to Santiago Hills Elementary School and in close proximity to Sierra Vista Middle School and Northwood High School.
