Turtle Rock Single Family Gem

14 Hillgrass: $1,228,000

New to the market, this single family 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in Turtle Rock’s Highland Gardens has quite a few polished options. From the secluded location on a 7,280 sq. ft. lot to the immaculate custom detailing within, this home was attracting a lot of interest in the open house.

Significant Numbers: This 2 level garden home is 2,541 sq. ft. with HOA of $99 and $/sq.ft. at $483. The home has been remodeled and was built in 1979. There is no Mello Roos.

Close-up: Stepping into a sleek entry there is a good sized living room with fireplace on the right with a sparkling formal dining room beyond. On the left the family room with built in cherry cabinetry pairs with a country kitchen and casual dining area overlooking a rock stone patio with fountain and sweep of green lawn beyond. Entertaining would be a snap inside and out and there is room for a pool as a future option.

The gourmet kitchen has updated appliances, granite counters and recessed lighting.

Custom built-ins, designer window coverings and a refaced fireplace all add to a functional feeling of ease in thus home.
