Good News, Bad News In San Juan Baustista

This VIDEO Tour of 766 Avenida Del Piero in San Juan Bautista turned out really well. It is a gorgeous executive home which sits on a professionally_DSC2350-HDR landscaped , half acre and is bordered by a 510 acre Agricultural Land Trust. It offers 3 good size bedrooms and a nice office, 2.5 bathrooms and a finished, 3 car garage and 3,415 sq. ft. of living space. Travertine tile and plush carpet, 10′ & 12′ ceilings, recessed lighting and remarkable views out every window makes this home very desirable. It is an entertainer’s dream.

The good news is that it was available for you to buy.

The bad news: we received multiple offers, it sold over the asking price and sold in just a couple of days. People from many different areas were calling about the home. One gentlemen was going to drive down from Oregon (a 6 hr. drive) to buy it. He had seen the VIDEO Tour and wanted the home. However, to each all I had to offer was a different listing I am working on, in that same community, which should be on the market in a couple of weeks.

This has become my good news, bad news experience: with a nicely staged home and great marketing materials my listings sell quickly and typically for more than the owners asked. I’m becoming more comfortable with: “Sorry, it went quickly, however, I’m will have another listing in that same subdivision. Would you like me to send you it’s information?

Pssst, I Know A Great Place, Coming Soon!

766 Avenida 003

It’s fun to know, before others, about something which is coming soon. This is just, such a surprise: it’s a drop-dead-gorgeous executive home tucked away in the foothills of San Juan Bautista.

Golf, nearby. Tennis, down the lane. Scenic trails & wildlife….. And the commute…so easy!

Watch for the VIDEO Tour of it.  I’ll be launching it about 2 weeks.

You don’t want to miss this jewel!

352 Orchard Hill Road, in the rolling foothills of historic San Juan Bautista, is one of just 12 ranchetts on this lane.  It is less than 5 minutes from Hwy 101 and 5 minutes from San Juan Bautista’s boutique shops and restaurants, historical sites, elementary and high school. From here it is only 15 minutes to Gilroy’s Premium Outlet Center and, CalTrain – for an easy commute.  The beaches and Monterey are just 30 minutes in the other direction.

Out each window of this single story, 2,500 sq. ft. home with 3 bedrooms 2 baths and 2 – 1/2 baths, with separate dining, family and living rooms, are spectacular views!  Even the extra wide, 3 car garage has plenty of windows to capture the views and flood it with natural light.

When you step inside 352 Orchard Hill Rd. you are standing on colorful, wood finish tile, and looking up at a cathedral ceiling, beautiful chandelier and crown molding. Leaving the foyer the remarkable kitchen becomes the favorite spot. Custom cabinetry has under cabinet lighting which shins down on beautiful slab granite counter tops; the commercial, stainless steel 6 burner gas stove and double ovens are one of the two center pieces.  The other is the copper apron sink and faucets.

Both the family and living rooms have their own raised fireplace.  While both have coved ceilings the living room has craftsman molding around the highest reach of its ceiling.

The guest bathroom has a sky light and the master suite bathroom has a jetted, sunken tub and, again remarkable views.  The master suite has a tastefully finished brick backdrop to its own “fireplace”.  A short stroll from the master suite takes you the sunken, hot tub and its octagon building.
