Open House Review: 5 Delamesa East

5 Delamesa East is nicely located at the end of a cul-de-sac street, just down the street from Santiago Hills Elementary and Park Paseo’s community clubhouse with a pool, tennis courts and sand volleyball court.  This property would appeal to any family looking for a great location that is walking distance to the elementary school and in walking/biking distance to Sierra Vista Middle School and Northwood High School.  The home sits next to an Irvine Water District non-residential property, so in essence, it has more privacy than other homes, but there is some traffic from heard from the back of the home from the corner of Yale and Hicks Canyon.

The basics:
Asking Price: $932,888
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2.25
Square Footage: 2,086
Lot Size: 4,410
$/Sq Ft: $447
Property Type: Single Family Residence
Year Built: 1977
Community: Northwood – Park Paseo
HOA dues are $106 per month and there no are Mello Roos taxes.

Open House Review: 28 Palmatum

Two Park Paseo homes are for sale this week, both the same model and a couple of streets apart from each other.  However, the locations and features of each house may make a big difference to buyers.  This week I am reviewing 28 Palmatum. This two level home is nicely located at the end of a cul-de-sac street, directly across from the green soccer fields at the back of Santiago Hills Elementary School.  It also has a highly desirable large bonus room.  Children can easily get to Santiago Hills Elementary School, Community pool and walking/bike path without needing to cross any street.  The property is also close distance to Sierra Vista Middle School and Northwood High School.

The basics:
Asking Price: $1,149,000
Bedrooms: 4 + bonus room
Bathrooms: 2.5
Square Footage: 2,673

Open House Review: 9 Filare

Nicely located within Northwood’s Vista Filare Community, 9 Filare has a nice layout and sits across from the community pool, tot lot and basketball courts.  The location is the primary selling point of this property.  The home has been partially upgraded and is in clean, great condition.  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.

Asking Price:   $699,000
Bedrooms:       2
Bathrooms:      2.5
Square Footage: 1,425
$/Sq Ft:           $491
Lot Size:          2,400
Property Type: Single Family Residence

Open Hous Review: 58 Hazelton

Located in Stonegate, this home has been listed since February with a $60,000 price reduction on March 8.  The home boasts a ground floor bedroom, panoramic patio doors and a large upstairs loft.  Although the home is only 150 square feet smaller than last week’s model, which was only one street over, there were enough differences in the layout and some of the upgrades, that I wonder which home will sell first.

The basics:
Asking Price: $1,329,500
Bedrooms: 4 + loft
Bathrooms: 4
Square Footage: 3,000sq ft
Lot Size:  4,008 sq ft
$/Sq Ft: $443
