Looking, looking, looking... always searching thru the listings, trying to find that needle in the haystack?? You want a home that has character and curb appeal, one that has room sizes bigger than a match box, you really want two baths so you don't have to share, a nice modern kitchen would be dreamy, maybe SOLAR so that the bills are low.. If only, if only you could find one that had a big garage or workshop, and you know your life would be ideal if there was a big back yard for those BBQs, kids and dogs to run. Is it too much to ask to be close to stores, restaurants, transportation and freeway access? Wait, What's that you say? You want it at what price!!???You actually want it at a price where financing is easy and plentiful? Well Good Morning, you are not dreaming. Welcome Home! See Supplement..

Although this is a probate property, it is not a fixer by any normal expectation. This home has been cared for and has recently undergone a refresh in preparing it for sale. The luster of the hardwood flooring has been restored, the whole home has been painted and presents itself drenched in light. You will love the fabulous kitchen with separate laundry area. It is sleek and modern, featuring an Jenn-Aire stove and oven. Beautiful granite counters and deeply rich cabinetry provide a true elegance. There is a lovely breakfast nook that leads into the formal dining and living great room. The living room is big and bold with plenty of space for entertainment. The home has a whole-house water filtration system, tankless water heater plus paid for Solar installed. Both baths are exceptional and feature walk-in showers with dual showerheads. Additionally, the hall bath has a deep stand-alone tub just waiting for you to soak in the bubbles! There is exceptional off-street parking in addition to a large 2-car garage that is oversized to fit larger vehicles. Behind the garage is a wonderful storage room that can easily be made into a workshop or garden shed.
