Open House Review: 6121 Sierra Bravo

Turtle Rock Detached Single Family 4 Bedroom Home in Sierra Ridge

6121 Sierra Bravo $1,295,000

Turning off of Turtle Rock Drive onto Sierra Lisa takes you to this single level, single family home on Sierra Bravo. On the market about 30 days, this property shows very well. According to the broker, it has $350,000 in upgrades and finishes. Recently I have seen several properties in this Sierra Ridge community, and this one competes well in space, overall finish and location.

Significant Numbers: Built in 1972, the home is 2,150 sq. ft on a 6,534 sq. ft. lot. It has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. HOA dues are $129 a month and the price per sq. ft. is $602. There are no Mello Roos taxes.

Close up: Nicely landscaped, from the curb on through a latticed side entrance with fountain, double doors open to a large entry.

On the left there is large family room with shuttered windows, wood floors and fireplace.

There is a formal dining room on the right. French doors access the immaculate garden areas in the wraparound patio and yard.

Straight ahead there is a comfortable atrium set up as an added outdoor family room. The kitchen and casual dining area conveniently open to a breezy covered patio dining area and a wrap around patio and yard with a professionally landscaped French garden effect. There is also a built-in barbecue.

To the left a formal living room has high ceilings, large windows with custom coverings and decorator paints.

Throughout the home the added baseboards, crown molding, recessed lighting, double paned windows, and skylights make the most of the good sized rooms.

The kitchen has custom cabinetry, a center island, garden windows, granite counters and stainless appliances.

The master suite opens to the atrium, has a large walk in closet, double vanity, granite counters, and a spa setting tub and shower.

There are three more bedrooms and another full bath, plus powder room.

What should be considered? The extensive remodeling in a good sized 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath detached single family home in the Turtle Rock Sierra Ridge community should compete well in the Irvine market. Excellent elementary schools and two beautiful parks are nearby. The all on one level floor plan, along with the beautifully maintained French garden yard and patio on a good sized lot add appeal and value.

Who will move in? An active family with middle school kids or teens may see this home as very workable with UCI, excellent Irvine schools and Turtle Rock’s hiking trails close by. Families with mature members will be drawn to the single level light filled setting and families that entertain a lot will be attracted to the very functional flow of space inside and out.
