The Best of White Oaks: 1645 Elm Street.

October 7, 2017


As I documented this past week on the site, September of 2017 will go down as one of the busiest listings months in San Carlos in recent years as homes hit the market at almost a two-per-day pace. But what's not as readily apparent is that buyers have quietly been just as busy as the sellers during this period, and they have been snapping up the inventory just as fast as it is hitting the market.

In fact, after hitting a peak of 28 single-family residences for sale in San Carlos this past week, buyers have whittled the inventory back down to just 16 listings as of this morning. It's pretty clear that the market had no problem absorbing the surge of listings in September.

White Oaks was especially busy over the past two weeks.  No fewer than 11 three-bedroom homes in White Oaks and Oak Park went into contract during that time span.  Just last week alone, the homes at 183 Ruby Avenue, 1717 Saint Francis Way, 1912 Eaton Avenue, 1180 Elm Street, and 1817 Brittan Avenue were all put into contract, which severely depleted the available inventory of homes in White Oaks.

In fact, if you're still looking for a beautiful home in the flats of White Oaks, there's only one left… and I daresay we saved the best for last:  1645 Elm Street.

The conservative exterior of this home completely belies the magnificent home that lies within. From the first step in the front door, you'll be amazed at the pride of ownership and the sheer level of transformation this house has undergone. This 3BR/2BA home has all of the boxes that people want in their home:  Separate living room, family room, and dining area. But what makes this home so special is the way it's all put together.

The truly wide-open floor plan puts the stunning chef's kitchen as the true centerpiece of this home, and everything else connects perfectly to it.  The huge family room with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, the quaint dining area that overlooks the back yard, and formal living room all connect seamlessly together in an open, inviting environment. If you love to entertain or just have friends over, you'll absolutely love this home.

Every room has been lovingly updated, included the spacious master suite that features a coffered ceiling with elegant crown molding. All three bedrooms are perfectly situated in the house, too, so those of you with young children to look after will truly appreciate that convenience.

And when it comes time for outdoor living, you won't find many back yards as dialed-in as this one.  The french doors swing open to a beautifully landscaped back yard with a covered sitting area, a gorgeous flagstone patio, and a beautiful built-in pool.  Hot summer nights will never be a problem with this home!

As I do with all of my listings, we've created an immersive 3-dimensional tour of the home that you can view by either clicking on this link, or simply by playing the viewer below:

If a stunningly beautiful home on a top street in White Oaks that's close to downtown is something that interests you, then be sure to stop by this weekend during our final open houses! We'll have the home showcased on both Saturday and Sunday from 1:00-4:00 PM, so don't miss your chance to own what is truly one of the finest homes in all of White Oaks…
