Jun 14 2017 26743 1 Homes On Tour Worth Talking About

The tour on Tuesday the 13th was a long one.  There were 28 properties on tour in Walnut Creek alone. Plus some outstanding ones in other communities.  As a result I am going to focus on a few that for a variety of reasons were unique

The first home I previewed is in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Walnut Creek located at 1835 Shuey Ave, literally right downtown.  You can walk 2 blocks to Sunday Brunch at Scotts.  This home is not huge, but it is a delight.  The main house is 2 bedrooms with a remodeled kitchen and updated bath, including a clawfoot tub. The backyard feels like it came straight from a picturesque B&B, including a wonderful guest house with full bath and kitchenette. Priced at $1,089,000 it is about the same price as the upscale condos in the downtown area.

The second home I checked out is at the other end of the spectrum is the 5023 sf, 5 bedroom home at 4120 Happy Valley Rd in Lafayette.  This is the deal of the week priced at $2,000,000 ... less than $400 / sf.  The home was originally built in 1990 and has just been completely remodeled.  The finish materials  and workmanship are top-notch.  The interior designer on the home had a great eye for creating elegance within a relaxed floor plan.  Image titleThe home is set up for entertaining and would be perfect for dinner parties for 12 or more.  And in spite of the hillside location there is ample parking for 6 to 8 cars and some nice outdoor entertaining space as well.  This is the best deal going in Happy Valley.

For those focused on outdoor living the home at 726 Mandarin Lane in Walnut Creek may be perfect.  This home was originally built by the builder for his family.  With almost 3800 sf and sitting on a level 27,000 sf lot the home has just been reduced to $1,395,000.  The home has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths with terrific living areas.  The yard is level, with a large pool and a tennis court (the court needs renovation) and is incredibly private.  The home is within a few blocks of the canal trail system and the Lime Ridge Open Space, but is also walking distance to the new Orchards Shopping Center at Ygnacio & Oak Grove.

Also in the heart of Northgate were 4 homes worth consideration:  3443 Cassena at $1,270,000 ... 402 Seville Lane, a duet priced at $699,000 ... 3565 Eris Ct at $1,250,000 ,,, and 73 Arbolado priced at $899,000.  Click on the address to get more details.

And finally over in Lakewood is 91 La Bolsa Rd.  This fully remodeled home actually overlooks the lake and feels like you are up at Tahoe.  Priced at $1,168,000 this 1861 sf home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a great floor plan even though it a hillside setting.  One of the key features of the plan is the "kids" wing with 2 bedrooms and a bath all off a large (and separate) game room.  This wing is within a few steps of the kitchen so within shouting ("hey Mom I need help") but out of site, which means their mess is in a more controlled environment. There isn't much usable yard but the streets are quiet and level.  

As I have said for some time, many or most of these homes will be gone quickly (one that I didn't include was already pending), so if you are serious about buying I strongly suggest you click the addresses for details, photos, payment and contact info, then call your agent if you are committed to one or call me to set an appointment to see these homes.
