New Listings

  • 3015 Brittan Ave: (Pictured Above)  $1,375,555 — 4BR/2.5BA, 2,890 sq ft on a 11,850 square foot lot.   This house has a huge, open floorplan and a nice pool and pool house in the back.  This one will surprise you…MLS# 80839463, listed by Mary Ficklin of RE/MAX Today.  (I will be holding this home open this Sunday from 2:00- 5:00PM.  Be sure to drop by and say hello)
  • 1013 Rosewood Ave: $1,749,000 — 4BR/3.5BA, 2,768 sq ft on a 6,000 square foot lot.   This section of Rosewood between Brittan and Arroyo is one of the most picturesque streets in San Carlos — right up there with Carmelita.    MLS# 80840623, listed by Patricia Dwyer of Cashin Company.
  • 928 Walnut St: $1,695,000 — 4BR/2BA, 2,000 sq ft on a 6,000 square foot lot.   This home has been gutted and redone entirely on the inside.  It's definitely not the house it was a year ago!  It's a “must see” on your open house tour this weekend.    MLS# 80840495, listed by John Shroyer of RE/MAX Today.
  • 2607 Graceland Ave: $1,595,000 — 4BR/3BA, 2,400 sq ft on a 18,240 square foot lot.   Graceland is another one of those highly sought after streets in San Carlos.    MLS# 80840495, listed by David Young of Coldwell Banker.
  • 117 Crestview Dr: $1,298,000 — 4BR/3BA, 2,490 sq ft on a 8,610 square foot lot.   It's located at the far northern end of Crestview, right where the road is divided between San Carlos and Belmont, so it's almost like a cul-de-sac.  MLS# 80839451, listed by Debbie Wilhelm of Coldwell Banker.
  • 30 Hidden Valley Dr: $1,088,000 — 4BR/2BA, 2,240 sq ft on a 10,650 square foot lot.   This one is already in contract after only 5 days on the market, and reportedly with multiple offers — it never made it to the first open house!   What housing slump?   MLS# 80839511, listed by Heather Hansen of Alain Pinel Realtors.
  • 1340 Elm St: $799,000 — 2BR/1BA, 1,280 sq ft on a 4,800 square foot lot.   Looks like a nice White Oaks starter home at a good price.   MLS# 80840606, listed by Loren Dakin of Alain Pinel Realtors.
