Coming This Weekend: 1700 Greenwood Avenue, San Carlos

September 17, 2014

Location, Location, Location…

So you're one of the many San Carlos home buyers that wants a charming home in the flats, right?   One with a great yard that's perfect for entertaining?  And of course, you want it to be centrally located and close to everything that's important to you… That sounds like a really tall order to fill in a city where there are only about 14 homes for sale right now — and probably even fewer by the time this weekend rolls around.

Well, I have just the home for you…

This weekend I will be unveiling my latest listing at 1700 Greenwood Avenue.  This warm and charming 3-bedroom, 2-bath home checks many of the boxes that today's San Carlos home buyers are looking for — the first of which is a superb location in the flats.

If you're familiar with San Carlos, this block of Greenwood Avenue not only has fantastic curb appeal, but it's just about as centrally located in town as you can possibly be.   Burton Park is only a block away.   You're under a mile to both Brittan Acres Elementary  and Central Middle Schools.  Ditto for Town Restaurant and the rest of the trendy downtown San Carlos dining and shopping district.  Caltrain?  1 easy mile away.    Even if you decide to venture to Redwood City's booming downtown district, that's only about 1.5 miles.

Wherever you need to be, this home is close to it.

Warmth and Charm.

From the minute you step inside,  you get a feeling that this is a warm and charming home — a place that you would love to raise your family, or proudly have your friend over for a dinner party.  Gorgeous, random-plank hardwood floors grace the entry way and run throughout most of the home.

There's a cozy eat-in kitchen with a fantastic breakfast nook area for those days when you when you just want to keep your dining casual.   But for those times when you need to formally entertain, this home has got that covered as well with the separate, elegant dining area.

The floor plan of this home flows very well and every room is logically placed.  The kitchen and dining areas connect perfectly to the huge living room.  This combined area is perfect for entertaining and makes the home feel greater than 1,690 square feet, but still provides a logical separation between the living and bedroom areas.

Speaking of bedrooms, there are three generously-sized bedrooms that are located toward the rear of the home.   And you'll love the fact that this home has a spacious, private master suite — so no more sharing the hall bathroom with everyone else!

Outdoor Entertainment.

In my mind, what really sets this home apart is that it totally embraces the San Carlos outdoor lifestyle.   Want to spend time outside in the front yard?  No problem — there's a huge fenced-in courtyard with a new lawn where you can sit back and watch the neighborhood come to life.

But if outdoor entertaining is your forte, you absolutely must see the built-in backyard barbecue, complete with a full gas cooktop, gas burning fireplace, refrigerator and sink.   There is no party that this set-up can't handle with absolute ease.  Even if you just want to relax on a nice summer evening and cozy up to the glowing fireplace, this is a place you will spend lots of time.

Put this home at the top of your list of ones to see this weekend. There are only 3 homes for sale right now in the highly desirable area between El Camino and Alameda in San Carlos — and not one of them is priced below $1,500,000 — until now.   This amazing home is listed at $1,395,000 and will be open on both Saturday and Sunday from 1-4.

I can assure you that this one will not be on the market long, so don't miss it.
