Great Home in San Juan Bautista!

If you want to be close to all of the important places but live “far” from it all – this home is calling you!  Watch this VIDEO Tour of it here.DSCN2503

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.

Rather than go on, why not text, email or call me for your own tour of this remarkable place.

Lrg PatioHere is your chance to own a home in the remarkable, “Ridgemark Golf and Country Club”.

As you will see in this VIDEO Tour, 50 Florence Ct., Hollister is just one of 5 homes on a private court within the gated golf and tennis community.

Many features of this home have recently been refreshed: there is a new roof; the exterior was recently painted; the master suite has new carpet; all of the appliances are just 2 years old.

I love the new manufactured hardwood floor in the kitchen leading up to the brick fireplace and the private patio just outside the dining area.  The great room also has it’s own fireplace, floor to ceiling windows for natural light and there is another private patio just out side this cozy room.  Each room has exposed beam ceilings.  In addition to the new forced air heater, there are 4 heaters for individual room comfort.

Outside the master bathroom is a sparkling hot tub.  And then, there is the massive backyard.

Since Ridgemark is just 40 miles from San Jose, Monterey and the beaches it is ideally located for an easy commute and vacation-time when you are home.

Coming Soon: In San Juan Bautista

I will probably put it on the market in a week or so.

“Home of The Week” Open House

On Saturday, 5/16, we will be holding an Open House for 1711 Morning Glory Dr. in Hollister, CA.20151101-1711 Morning Glory, Hollister-12 - Copy

If you can’t stop by between 1 – 4 PM for your own tour of this 5 bdrm, 3 bth, 3 car garage, 2,650 sq. ft. home – watch this VIDEO Tour.  It is almost like walking through the home itself.

“1711 Morning Glory” is just 18 mths ‘new’.  The significantly upgraded walnut hardwood flooring and great carpet still look and feel fresh. This home also sits on nearly 7,500 sq. ft. so there is plenty of room in the back and both side yards.

Since Hwy 25’s extension is just .5 mile away, the drive to the Bay Area is surprisingly comfortable.  When I moved to Hollister from San Jose people asked: “moving way down there“?  It wasn’t long before I just smiled and said “yeah, way down there” with a subtle secret in my smile. The little extra drive yields so much more of a home and lot.  It is absolutely worth it.

Some, even catch CalTrain in Gilroy for an even easier commute.

What has been your experience with living in South County while working in the Bay Area?
