Open House Review: 10 Morning Glory

Turtle Rock Peters View Townhome

10 Morning Glory – $1,099,000

Winding up the hill and turning onto Morning Glory I discovered another special spot in Turtle Rock. Having just seen a single family home at 14 Hillgrass, a short distance away I was wondering how this home would compare.

The answer was obvious, from the secluded location to the elegant interior and splendid views this Peters View home on Morning Glory competes quite well.

Significant Numbers: New to the market, this 3 bedroom, two bath split level single family townhome is 1,998 sq. ft. on a 7,182 sq. ft. lot with city lights and hill views. Built in 1979, the HOA dues are $379. The $/sq.ft. is $550. There is no Mello Roos and this is a standard sale.

Close-Up: A dramatic entry and living room with two story ceilings, sleek fireplace, and light filled windows easily commands attention. The home is vacant but the floor plan and dynamic design is a winner and it is easy to imagine the flow of a party around the brick floored atrium or festive dinners in the formal dining room. Plantation shutters, ceramic tile, carpet and marble flooring are all effectively used.

The kitchen is remodeled with maple cabinets, pull out drawers, granite counters and a breakfast bar. There is also a garden window with a view. The family room with built-ins, and atrium complete the flow of the split level floor plan. There is also an enclosed patio.

There are two main floor bedrooms with bathroom. Upstairs there is a private master suite with double vanity, dressing area and views.

What will be considered here: The 7,182 sq. ft. view lot and good sized distinctive townhome will weigh in along with a prime Turtle Rock location, and excellent schools and recreational facilities.
