Open House Review: 17 Prosa

Apr 7th, 2014 by Joy 

Today I am reviewing a single level home in Northwood’s Park Paseo Community. I reviewed the same model as 17 Prosa, just down the street at 18 Diamante in mid-March. Both homes are a single level, zero-lot-line property but this home has more upgrades throughout the home and is listed with slightly more square footage, although Diamante’s property backs to a walking path and the community pool. However, 17 Prosa is nicely situated on a cul-de-sac street with one of the two Association pools at the end of the cul-de-sac. The home would be desirable for a family wanting to be close to the amenities as well as walking distance to the elementary and middle schools. Northwood High School is designated for this neighborhood. This home is priced a bit higher at $729,000 versus Diamante’s $718,800 price.

Asking Price: $729,000
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2
Square Footage: 1,560
Lot Size: 4,356
$/Sq Ft: $467
Days on Market: 10
Property Type: Single Family Residence
Year Built: 1979
Community: Northwood – Park Paseo

HOA dues are $89 per month and there no are Mello Roos taxes.

Today, I’ll continue the theme by highlighting Irvine’s farmers markets, which are outdoor markets at which you can buy many fresh fruits and vegetables that are often organic and from local farmers. In addition, other items are frequently available.
