Eastwood Village – Belvedere Collection Review

The Belvedere Collection is the final set of homes in Eastwood Village. These are the largest houses in the village, going as high as 2,952 square feet. All homes are single family residences, typically with nine houses on each side of the street. There will be a total of 135 homes, each with an average lot size of about 3,550 square feet. The models, however, are on premium lots that are about 300-500 square feet bigger. The Belvedere homes are on the western edge of the village, bordered on the east by the Piedmont neighborhood, the new elementary school (opening in 2017), and a future park. There are three primary models, plus a 3X and a single-story Residence 4 that is not advertised. The models all have two-car garage. Homes have 2-4 bedrooms, 2.5 – 4.5 bathrooms, and range from 2,033 – 2,952 square feet. Elevations include Santa Barbara, Early California, Formal Spanish, Spanish Monterey, Traditional Monterey, and French.

Eastwood Village: Piedmont Collection Review

The Piedmont Collection has the second largest homes in Eastwood Village. There are two main residences, as well as a 2X design, which has a slightly larger loft and entryway. All homes are single family residences, usually with 5-7 homes on each side of the street. Residence 1 can be either an end home or in the middle, Residence 2 is always in the middle, and Residence 2X always sits on a corner lot. Homes have an average lot size of 3,700 square feet and are represented as such in the models. Piedmont has what I consider to be the best location in Eastwood Village. It is centrally located, sitting adjacent to the brand new school site and most of the Village’s parks. Half of the 142 homes sit on each side of the school, with the first 71 opening on the southern side and the remaining 71 opening just north of the school site, though probably not for at least 18 months. The models have two-car garages, four bedrooms, including one on the first floor, and 3-4 bathrooms. They range from 2,165 – 2,546 square feet. Home elevations include Santa Barbara, Early California, Formal Spanish, French, and Traditional Monterey.

Open House Review: 31 Entrada West

31 Entrada West is nicely located at the end of a cul-de-sac street, just around the corner from one of the two community pools.  The home has added a desirable ground floor master bedroom as well as an extra room added to the second level master bedroom.  The home is move-in ready and everything has been updated apart from one original tub/shower combo.  This property would appeal to any family looking for a great location with a ground floor bedroom.  It is also walking distance to Santiago Hills Elementary School and in close proximity to Sierra Vista Middle School and Northwood High School.

The basics:
Asking Price: $1,088,888
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 3.5
