Nov 2 2016 26743 1 Homes On Tour Worth Talking About

Hope your week is going well.  We are delighted that we are finally moved into our new office at 1320 Mt Diablo Blvd, #206 in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek.  More on that later.


Tuesday we focused on Walnut Creek for Brokers' Tour and found several properties worth talking about.


The first home we checked out was in South Walnut Creek at 1229 Mountain View Blvd.  Priced at $875,000, the living area of this home has been opened up to create a modified Great Room.  There is still some separation of the family room and the living room, but the kitchen is open to both which creates a great flow for entertaining. The updates were done several years ago so the finishes are a bit dated, but for minimal cost this home could be totally tricked out. The yard is HUGE with over 17,000 sf and there is a nice pool and a couple of out buildings.  This won't last long and may see multiple offers.


The second home we checked out was up near the back of Indian Valley / Lakewood ... so it's an easy walk to Indian Valley Elementary and the Shell Ridge Open Space.  Located at the corner of El Verano and Lombardi the home at 209 Lombardi Circle is Back on the Market and now priced at $849,000.  Built in the mid 50's it is in essentially original condition, except that the hardwood floors have been beautifully refinished.  With a few modifications this home would have a terrific Great Room.


Next we headed to Northgate and stopped at 3579 Whitehaven.  Priced at $1,200,000 the home has been extensively updated with new kitchen and baths along with extensive use of travertine flooring.  The family room, kitchen and Master bedroom all look out on a very picturesque backyard ... perfect for a tranquil afternoon away from the noise of the outside world.


Our fourth stop was at 2608 Cherry Lane near Walden.  This home was upgraded by a couple who spared no expense because they were staying forever ... and then got a new job out of state.  This single story 2700 sf home has the bones of a 1940's farmhouse with all the latest and greatest upgrades to the kitchen and baths. Situated on a 14,000 sf level lot the home is ideally located for commuting by BART or car, while feeling like you are miles from everything.  This is a truly unique property priced at: $1,747,000


Moving on to an impeccably maintained home within walking distance of the Pleasant Hill BART station (actually located in the unincorporated area with a Walnut Creek address).  Located at 113 Greenwood Circle off Las Juntas and priced at $1,048,000, this property includes a 3 bedroom , 2 bath main house and a 1 bedroom, 1 bath guest house.  An additional feature is RV parking.  The yard on this home is amazing... though I think I saw one blade of grass out of place.  The home is definitely in move-in condition though a bit dated.


On the west side of 680 off First Ave is 933 Monet Circle, priced at $895,000.  This bright and airy two story features a double height living room with a ton of windows and a traditional floor plan with the kitchen open to the breakfast nook and family room.  The current owners have switched things up a bit, using the dining area as a TV viewing alcove off the living room and then using the family room as a large formal dining room with a fireplace.  It works well.


The final home I took a look at is over in Saranap at 2596 Lucy Lane, priced at $925,000.  Originally built in 1935 the home is classic early Walnut Creek.Image title  With a large yard and a pool this home has great bones, is in move-in condition and can be made into a jewel over time.


Check these out and if any look interesting to you I would be happy to help.
