If you’re out looking at homes this weekend in San Carlos, you don’t have a huge list to choose from. The inventory of homes for sale in San Carlos has dropped from nearly 30 just a few weeks ago down to just 19. That’s to be expected due the traditional seasonal slowdown. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some good homes to see in your travels.
In what will hopefully become a weekly mainstay on the White Oaks Blog, every weekend I will highlight a couple of “don’t miss” open houses that you should check out. They may not be in everyone’s price range, but there will usually be something unique about the house or the location to make it worth dropping by. I hope you enjoy this new feature on the blog.
Here are this week’s picks. Click on the address for more details and photos:
- 125 Kelton Avenue. Right in the heart of White Oaks, this home (and the one right next door) have piqued everyone’s curiosity ever since the old home on the double lot was torn down, and new construction began with not one home, but two. Well, your wait is finally over to see what’s cooking here — and you won’t be disappointed. At a quoted 3,106 square feet, 5 bedrooms, and 4.5 baths, this is a lot of house — and at a list price of $2,800,000 it won’t be in everyone’s budget. But this is really a marvelously designed home, with 4 bedrooms upstairs, and one down (the perfect 5BR layout, in my humble opinion). And where I really think they hit a home run is with the kitchen/great room combo. It fits the California lifestyle perfectly. On top of all that, Kelton is just a fantastic White Oaks street too. 125 Kelton is listed by Ben Halali of Amazing Properties, and will be open from 1-4 on both Saturday and Sunday.
- 2240 Howard Avenue. One thing that is indeed a relative rarity with homes in San Carlos is a large lot, but 2240 Howard Avenue definitely has one of them. At 10,964 square feet, it’s not huge by perhaps Menlo Park standards, but it’s a rarity in a town where the average lot is probably half that size. Situated on the creekside of Howard Avenue, this home has curb appeal to the 1oth degree, accentuated by probably the must stunning Jacaranda tree in the entire city. It looks to be a very charming and warm home, with stunning landscaping all around. 2240 Howard Avenue is listed by Patricia Peterson of Coldwell Banker, and the first showings will be during the open house hours from 2:00-4:30 on both Saturday and Sunday.

If you’re interested in a private showing of any of these properties, just contact me and I’d be happy to arrange it (but please only if you’re not already working with another Realtor.) Happy house hunting!
