The inventory of homes for sale in San Carlos was starting to look a little lean toward the middle of this past week. As of Thursday morning, there had only been one new listing to hit the market, and the number of homes for sale had dropped back into the teens, which is not a lot to choose from. Luckily for home buyers, there was a late push and 6 new listings popped up on Thursday and Friday which propped the number back up to a total of 22 homes and 5 condos — the identical inventory numbers as this time last week.
So if you’re out this weekend looking for a home or condo in San Carlos, there is still a decent number of homes that will be hosting open houses on either of both of the days.
Here are a few of my picks to see this weekend. Click on the address for more details and photos:
2258 Howard Avenue – $1,498,000
If having a large, flat lot is high on your wish list for your new San Carlos home, then be sure to add 2258 Howard Avenue to your list of homes to see this weekend. This 3BR/2BA creekside home is situated on a huge 9,700 square foot lot — which if you know San Carlos, you’ll know very well know that this is much larger than the typical lot. And this home has the added bonus of a detached 1BR/1BA guest house in the back, which is ideal for longer-term guests, or even those of you thinking ahead to the possibility of your parents coming back to stay with you.
The home is a spacious 1,770 square feet and features an updated kitchen. 2258 Howard Avenue is listed by my colleague Gary Bulanti of Alain Pinel Realtors, and will be open from 1:30-4:30 on both Saturday and Sunday.
1110 Hudson Court – $1,685,000
Has this recent hot weather got you thinking that a pool should be added to your list of amenities? With 1110 Hudson Court in San Carlos, you’ll get the pool and the spectacular entertainment back yard without sacrificing any of the other features that you’ll want in your new home.
Situated on a nice cul-de-sac in the San Carlos hills, this home is geared for indoor and outdoor living. The chef’s kitchen features slab granite counters, custom backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. The wine steward opens to family room and the professionally designed back yard, complete with a stunning outdoor kitchen & beautiful flagstone pool deck.
1110 Hudson Court is a 3BR/2BA home at approximately 2,150 square feet, which is larger than many 3-bedroom homes that you will see in San Carlos. This beautiful home is listed by Laura Bertolacci of Today Sothebys, and the first showings of will be on Sunday from 1:00-4:00
41 Elston Court – $1,485,000
Since San Carlos is located almost exactly at the midpoint between San Jose and San Francisco, there are some areas in the city that afford some simply breathtaking views of the bay — and 41 Elston Court is one of those houses that takes full advantage of those views. You’ll never get tired of the stunning view of Mount Diablo across the bay, or the incredible “framed” view of the San Francisco skyline — all right from your the back yard of this home.
This 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home features an expansive open floorplan that literally wraps around the back yard and those aforementioned views. And the extensive use of large picture windows allows the natural light to just flood into this home, giving it a bright cheery feel. It’s worth the drive up the hill to see this home.
41 Elston Court is listed by Greg Damelio of McGuire Real Estate, and will be open on Saturday from 2:00-4:00, and again on Sunday from 1:30-4:00.
260 Fairmont Avenue – $1,395,000: Classic White Oaks location, great yard. Open Sunday 1:30-4:30. Listed by Pete Vece of Today Sothebys.
2007 Eucalyptus Avenue – $1,249,000: It’s a rarity when a home on Eucalyptus hits the market. A nice 3BR/2BA home in Howard Park. Open Saturday and Sunday from 1:00-4:00. Listed by Bryce Cook of Today Sothebys.
