San Carlos “New Listing of the Week” — 1951 Eucalyptus Avenue.

March 2, 2010

Great Neighborhood, Great Home…

Whenever a home comes on the market on Eucalyptus Avenue in San Carlos, it's definitely newsworthy.     Although it only spans two blocks, Eucalyptus is arguably one of most well known streets in all of San Carlos, due to the spectacular Halloween and Christmas displays they host every year.   But there's much more to Eucalyptus than just holiday glitter.

A big draw for Eucalyptus is its location.  It's only a block or so from Burton Park, and an easy jaunt to the northern “restaurant row” of Laurel Street.  Even more important to families with school age kids, it's an easy walk to both Brittan Acres Elementary and Central Middle Schools.  So with the exception of rainy days, you should never have to drive the kids to school from kindergarten all the way to 8th grade!

But for my money, the best part about Eucalyptus is the neighborhood itself.  It's an extremely tight knit group of neighbors, many who have lived on the street for decades.   Consequently, everyone seems to know everyone else — and if you don't, you certainly will after the annual block party.   Ask anyone who lives there and they'll tell you it's a great place to raise a family.

1951 Eucalyptus Avenue.

This home, which just came on the market today, is a spectacular 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath gem that has been completely rebuilt from the ground up.  It's being offered at $1,795,000 by John Shroyer of RE/MAX Today.   I just took an extensive tour through this home, and it's just as elegant on the inside as it is striking from the outside.  First-class touches are everywhere, from the rich hardwood floors both downstairs and upstairs, to the subtle wainscoting that runs throughout the home.   The layout is intelligent, with very little wasted space — this is important, because putting a 3,100 square foot home on a 5,000 square foot lot doesn't leave much margin for error.

The kitchen (pictured at the right) is just spectacular, and it flows well with the family room and dining room.  The bedrooms are generously-sized, and the upstairs laundry room is one of the biggest I've seen in a house this size (trust me, this is important if you have kids!)  The yard is tastefully landscaped, again making the absolute best use of the space available.
