Are you ready to start 2015 with a bang? The housing market is heating up, and prices are only going to rise. Why not grab an affordable home in the heart of Granite Bay, located in the Treelake neighborhood while you can?
This is a brand new listing, and it’s one of the best prices you will find for a home that’s over 3,000 square feet in this desirable area.
Picture a 30 second walk to ponds and paths surrounded by red-winged blackbirds and common egrets, a five-minute walk to Treelake park and soccer and baseball fields, and a two-minute drive to Placer county’s highest scoring elementary schools.
The home resides at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, and it’s move-in ready, just in time to start the new school semester.
The home has crown molding, iron fixtures, tall doors, and numerous amenities throughout.
The kitchen here is flooded with light in any weather thanks to light cabinetry and plenty of windows. The room includes a dishwasher, a five-burner cooktop, oven, and counters and a center island that is topped with black granite that’s swirled with taupe and cream colors. A granite backsplash completes the upscale look, and a butler’s pantry with a wine refrigerator and etched glass create a beautiful space that’s highly functional.
The family room in this home has a granite fronted, gas-burning fireplace that will keep you cozy all winter long.
It’s easy to forget about outdoor living this time of year. But this backyard includes French door access and a large covered patio with oversized wood shade structure that will offer hours of spring and summer enjoyment outside. The patio gazes to flagstone seating areas throughout the backyard, as well as a large slate water feature. Evergreens line the property and the yard includes ample lawn space, and an oversized side yard as well, not to mention plenty of room for a pool.
One of the best things about this home is the large downstairs master. The master has nearly floor to ceiling windows, tray ceilings with crown molding and a peninsula style gas fireplace that offers warmth to both the bedroom and the bath. The bath is a sunken and jetted tub, and it’s easy to imagine a fireside soak when it’s cold and dark outside. Separate vanities and glass block shower with dual rain heads create a cocoon of cream-colored tiles embossed with rich detail. A large walk-in closet offers ample storage space, and is impressive with floor-to-ceiling mirrors. A nearby bedroom is the perfect office or nursery and the room also includes a large walk-in closet.
There’s an additional full bath downstairs, as well as a large laundry room with sink and extensive storage space.
Head upstairs and you will fall in love with the loft – a room that has natural oak flooring with cherry details. The room serves as a hub for three additional bedrooms and two full baths and two of the bedrooms have a large Jack-and-Jill bath with extensive storage, as well as vanities that are separated by storage space. A separate water closet and shower make this the perfect bath for kids who are getting ready for school in the morning.
The home has ceiling fans, pendant light fixtures and wood blinds throughout.
But the best thing about this home is the price in this location. Treelake at $171 per square foot. This home will make someone very happy in 2015. Why not you?
