Open House Review: 32 Morning Dove

Woodbridge Single Family Updated Home in Outer Loop

32 Morning Dove $835,000

Turning off West Yale Loop onto Stone Creek N, and then onto Sparrowhawk takes you to this upgraded and remodeled, detached single family home in the outer loop of Woodbridge. Just reduced from $847,500, the home shows well from the curb and all the way through to the backyard and patio that overlooks the park. Several visitors started their Memorial Day holiday weekend with a Saturday tour of this property.

Significant Numbers: On the market about 45 days, this all on one level, three bedroom, 2 bath single family home has 1,525 sq. ft. on a 4,356 sq. ft. lot. Built in 1977, the home has HOA dues of $82. It is $548/sq.ft. There are no Mello Roos taxes.

Close up: Moving down the side entrance and stepping into the entry, there is a large step down living room on the left with custom mantel fireplace, bay window nook, vaulted ceilings, and new carpeting.

Straight ahead the formal dining area overlooks a striking atrium retreat.

To the right the kitchen and casual dining area overlook the patio and back yard that has wood and wrought iron fencing.

The kitchen has been enlarged with a custom pantry and upgraded with new cabinetry, granite counters and stainless appliances.

Around the corner, the master bedroom overlooks the atrium and has a new vanity and recessed can lighting. There are two more bedrooms and another full bath.

This floor plan has been widely used in Woodbridge but this is one of the nicest interior treatments of it that I have seen.

What should be considered? This single family home is completely detached and all on one level. On the plus side, it overlooks the park and has been nicely upgraded throughout. On the down side, the lot has been well used but is a bit snug and the home sits in the outer loop not far from Culver St. traffic. Woodbridge’s Stone Creek Swim Club, tennis courts and top schools are nearby. On the price side, the property competes with a number of other key spots in Irvine and Orange County, also delivering nice asset packages.

Who will move in? A young family valuing the park access and Irvine Unified schools will be attracted. Families with more mature members will be drawn to this all one level home. Professional couples looking for an appealing, move in ready home, needing little updating, that’s close to everything, will check this one too.
