Open House Review: 30 Brigmore Aisle

Turtle Rock Condo’s Flipside

30 Brigmore $789,000

Turning off Turtle Rock Drive and winding back past Canyon Park, I found myself on a curvy little lane facing 30 Brigmore Aisle.

The home sits amidst trees in a shady spot. But when you step inside, there is a flip side. The condo opens to one light filled view after another of the park and distant hills. Perched above the park, the home makes the most of views from the master balcony and the patio off of the dining room.

Building on this setting, the marble entry, handsome wood floors, many windows, skylights and recessed lighting give this condo a sure footed ease. Entertaining here would be a breeze, and family time could be very special.

The home is furnished with many massive pieces of furniture, but still manages to appear spacious and open. This condo is part of the Turtle Rock Summit Townhome Collection.

Significant Numbers: This three bedroom, 2.5 bath condo has 2,160 square feet. It was built in 1990 and has been on the market 85 days. The HOA is $422 and the $/sq.ft. is $365. This is a standard sale and there is no Mello Roos.

Close Up: The marble entry leads into the living room, then on to the formal dining room and through sliding glass doors out to the patio. The kitchen and family room with fireplace are in the back to the right. The master and two other bedrooms and two baths are up the stairs to the right of the front entry.

The kitchen has stainless appliances and granite countertops. The master has a balcony view, large walk in closet and roomy bath with oval tub and separate shower. The garage has coated flooring.

What should be considered here? The view location is backed up with Irvine’s excellent schools and Turtle Rock’s many parks and hiking trails. Quail Hill and Woodbridge condos also compete with outstanding schools, parks, and views, but Turtle Rock does especially well in placing condos in their own secluded settings, tucked away from the traffic, and very much a part of their surroundings. But all of the bedrooms are upstairs and active families may opt for a single family home with more private outside space at this price level.

Who will move in? A small family drawn to the area, the view, and the schools or a busy couple looking for a polished setting, may be the next owners. Or perhaps it will become an investment property feeding into a brisk rental market.
