This is a new feature that will appear weekly in the White Oaks Blog. Since I tour all of the new listings in White Oaks and San Carlos each week, I will pick one that is noteworthy and highlight it in the blog. I hope you enjoy this feature! cg
OK, so no sooner than I decide to pick a single “Best of the Week” listing, I find I can’t decide between two of them. So for the first week, I’ll highlight both. They make the list for entirely different reasons, too. Here are this week’s winners:
212 Fairmont Avenue
242 Fairmont Avenue is 3BR/2BA, 1,460 square feet that’s on a 5,500 square foot lot. It’s listed at $1,225,000 by Mike and Sandy Rostad of Coldwell Banker.
Size, location, condition and value are probably the most important factors you’ll consider when deciding if a home is right for you. 242 Fairmont scores very well in most of these categories. This home should be extremely attractive to any family who is interested in getting into the San Carlos School District. It has 3 bedrooms, and it’s on a great street that’s a short walk from White Oaks School. That alone will draw many interested buyers.
But this home is in really nice condition. From the dark hardwood floors and dramatic baseboard to the crown moulding on top, this is a warm, clean home. The kitchen is beautiful, and the yard is nice and flat. At $839/sq ft, it won’t qualify as a bargain, but it shouldn’t stop them from getting their price. It’s definitely a nice place!

3140 Melendy Drive
If there was a category for “sleepers,” this would be the runaway winner. 3140 Melendy is offered at $1,598,000 by Sam Hui of Intero Real Estate Services.
The exterior of this home only gives you a slight hint of the degree of remodel that has taken place on the inside of this home — that’s why it’s such a sleeper. Once you step inside, you immediately sense that this is no ordinary rancher in the hills. Grand tile entry, gorgeous granite kitchen area, and probably the best feature — the killer bay views from the back deck.
The ceilings in the hallway and some of the bedrooms have been raised and given back-lighting behind the crown moulding. It’s a nice touch, and not something you’ll see in every remodel. While most of Melendy is on a hill, this home is located on one of the few flat stretches. So you get the view, without burning out your clutch getting there.
