Open House Review: 23 Sunriver

Primo Single Family Woodbridge Home

23 Sunriver $985,000

As the market picks up speed, open houses for upscale single family homes in the same area of Woodbridge have been turning up every weekend with heavy traffic and warp speed sales. Two in this same South Lake area, 5 Rainstar and 20 Rainstar, spun through the market very quickly. Both are now sale pending.

Now 23 Sunriver’s open house followed suit as a new to the market, remodeled single family home in a cul de sac in this same South Lake area, inside the loop and built by J.M. Peters.

The Saturday open house was brimming with people and the realtor said she recognized many from the previous 20 Rainstar open house. Seven days later, as of Wednesday, the property was listed as sale pending with backup offers accepted.

Significant Numbers: Built in 1982, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath single family detached home is 2,547 sq. ft. at $387/sq. ft. The lot size is 5,100 sq. ft. HOA is $82 and there is no Mello Roos.

CloseUp: Stepping into the ceramic tile entry, you have a straight shot view of the step down living room with cathedral ceiling and French doors opening onto an entertainer’s patio. On the right of the entry, stairs lead up to an open view balcony and 3 bedrooms including the master suite. Immediately to the left from the entry there is a bedroom and full bath.

Moving on from the living room, to the right there is a built-in wine cooler, bar, and large family room with rock fireplace, shutters and French doors leading to the patio.

The remodeled kitchen that opens to the family room has granite counters, stainless appliances, recessed lighting and a built-in work area. There is a formal dining room and a casual eating area.

Throughout the main floor the floor to ceiling windows, skylights, hardwood floors, and attention to detail work beautifully. Sleek ebony fixtures and accent paint, punctuated with shots of vibrant red are used effectively throughout the home.

The private patio with custom in ground spa fits beautifully with the light airy windowed views from the living room and family room.

Upstairs three bedrooms with two baths include a luxe master suite with fireplace, walk-in closet, private bath with double sinks and soaking tub.

There is a double garage and interior laundry room.

Who will be moving in? The home is within walking distance of elementary, middle and high schools, all top rated, perfect for a good sized active family. With a main floor bedroom and full bath, the home would also work for an active couple who wanted to be based in Irvine and needed room for guests or senior family members.

What was considered here? As a Woodbridge JM Peters single family home on a quiet cul de sac in this South Lake area, in an accelerating market, this home attracted traffic and got immediate results.
