Friendly neighbors call this beautifully planted property “the gateway to the neighborhood.” It’s a nature-lover’s dream! This retreat-like, upgraded non-HOA home backs onto a foothill for stunning southwest valley views and sunsets, set up 30 feet from a quiet one-lane street. With 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 1,964 square feet, remote office work is successful with available 5G internet. Vaulted ceilings, recessed lights, beveled-glass front door, 5 patio doors, and 8 skylights throughout the home and garage lend a bright feel. The kitchen features deep cherry cabinets with quartz countertops, soft-close doors and pull-out shelves, while the living room showcases a new gorgeous wood-burning fireplace porcelain insert. Perfect for entertaining, come on up to the full-sized bar in the huge bonus room containing Italian tile and woodstove. Warm laminate wood, carpet, and tile exist in the kitchen and baths with the 2-car garage sporting RaceDeck flooring. Double-pane Milgard windows and doors, extra-insulated walls and attic, and plenty of storage throughout. The solar panels’ affordable lease amount is much less than other city residents pay for gas and electric; this is an electric-only home with heat/AC pump on the roof. The fenced backyard features a charming 8x14 she-shed, concrete area for projects or a plant nursery, and space for ADU or pool. The tree-shaded backyard with succulents requires no grass-cutting. This ½-acre property is mature and drought-tolerant. Watch the ever-changing sky panoramas from the front pergola or home windows. Delight in the scents of jasmine and orange tree blossoms, plus harvest from delicious citrus and other fruit trees, not to mention naturalized herbs and salad greens. This property was such a great home that both of the previous owners held onto it for years. Could you be next? You’re invited to view the amazing bounty of spring on this property and experience the home’s peaceful ambiance!
