Spotlight San Carlos Listing: 2527 Graceland Avenue
August 25, 2023
An Iconic San Carlos Street.
If you've lived in San Carlos for any period of time, you know that there are a handful of streets that are immediately recognizable, unique in their own perspective, and of course highly desirable. Carmelita Drive, Knoll Avenue, Eucalyptus Avenue, Morse Boulevard, and Knoll Drive are a few that come to mind very quickly… as does Graceland Avenue.
Graceland Avenue shares a similar vibe to Knoll Drive and Carmelita Drive in that they share a very rustic and serene backdrop with lots of trees, no sidewalks, and some incredible homes — which leads me to this weeks spotlight property, which is my new listing at 2527 Graceland Avenue.
“Impeccably maintained” was the first phrase that popped into my head when I initially saw this home. It has been lovingly maintained by the same family for the past 52 years where they raised their own kids and are now ready to retire out of the area.
That's not to say this home is a time capsule to the 1970's — far from it. The kitchen was beautifully remodeled just 5 years ago and features quartz counters, beautiful cabinets, and plenty of room to dine all in the same area.
As you can see from the photos, gleaming oak hardwood floors grace the majority of the home. The windows are dual-pane, and it has central heat and air conditioning.
Indoor and Outdoor Living.
But what make this home so special is how it embraces indoor and outdoor living. The private backyard is entirely hardscaped for utility and ease of maintenance, and the centerpiece is the incredible solar-heated pool that you can enjoy for MANY months out of the year. This back yard is absolutely dialed in for entertainment, and you'll be the most popular house for swimming and barbecues on those warm summer days that we usually have. (What is up with this summer??)
Come See It.
If you've never traveled up Graceland Avenue, you're in for a treat. It's a favorite path for joggers and dog walkers, and homes rarely change hands here. 2527 Graceland will be open both Saturday and Sunday from 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM, or you can contact me for a private showing. Either way, get out to see this amazing home in an absolute park-like setting!
