New Listing of the Week in San Carlos: 1241 Crestview Drive
August 11, 2008
Sometimes the criteria varies when I decide on a “New Listing of the Week.” It may be the nicest home to hit the market that week, or perhaps it's in a noteworthy location. Other times I'll highlight one because it appears to be an exceptional value. This week's winner at 1241 Crestview Drive has a little bit of all of these. This home has 3-bedrooms, 2.5-baths, with 2,300 square foot of living space on a big 9,380 square foot lot. It's being offered at $1,099,000 by John Herrmann of RE/MAX Today.
This home is priced very well for its size — at 2,300 square feet, that calculates out to about $478/square foot, which is a great deal in San Carlos, regardless of the condition of the home. And this home has a ton of good things going for it. The layout is very spacious, with a lofty entry that features some big arches. There's hardwood and carpet on both levels, which is a nice touch. The kitchen is pretty much original, but it wouldn't take much to spruce it up.
The lot has been recently landscaped, and the back yard is very pleasant and private. The home is near the top of the the first hill on Crestview (close to the intersection of La Mesa) which is nice for a couple of reasons: the grade starts to flatten out, so it's not as steep as some homes further down the hill. And it's up high enough to get some good views.
Crestview has always been an ideal location for folks who use Highway 280 for commute access, so this is a big plus. The final big plus? Check out that 3-car garage….nice.
