Open House Review: 12 Silkgrass

Posted: 19 Nov 2013 04:00 AM PST

Woodbridge Windsor Estates Condo            
12 Silkgrass  $740,000

Turning off of West Yale Loop onto Thunder Run and then onto Silkgrass takes you to this handsome 4 bedroom condo in the inner circle of Woodbridge. The home is secluded and quiet on the Silkgrass side. On the other side of the property, the patio at the back of the home overlooks West Yale Loop, which opens the house up to some traffic noise.  On the other hand, with a price reduction of $15,000, this property at $740,000,  definitely trumps other recent listings of Woodbridge properties that I have seen in that price range.  Both of the other properties were smaller, less appealing and located in Woodbridge’s outer circle.

Significant Numbers: Built in 1984, this two level home has 2,275 sq. ft. HOA dues are $442  and the price per square foot is $325.27.  The home had been on the market 82 days as of Saturday.

CloseUp: Pulling up to the curb, this home is nicely detailed with an inviting presence.  Stepping inside, there is a live planter straight ahead, with a double doored bedroom to the right. That room is currently used as a study/office, but it could work as a guest bedroom too.

Next, there’s a powder room, and then a good sized family room with brick walled fireplace paired with the kitchen.  French doors open to a large, private brick ribboned patio.


On the left there is a spacious living room with fireplace. And a stairway leads to a large master suite with good sized vanity, tub and shower, plus two more bedrooms and bath.

Also, on the main floor to the left, a full sized formal dining room with French doors opens onto the patio.  It is easy to picture the space serving as a hub for holiday parties and family celebrations.

Bay windows, plantation shutters, cathedral vaulted ceilings, skylights, fans and crown molding give the home a finished elegance.  An obvious pride of ownership is carried out in little individual details throughout the home.

The kitchen has an adjoining casual dining area, and planter window box overlooking the patio.  The private fenced backyard patio has rock planter beds and mature plantings.  An older spa has been removed, but there is a bricked area that could be used for a new spa installation or redone as a rose garden.

Bedrooms, 4
Baths, 3-1/2
One attached wall
Double attached garage
Forced air heating, central air
Association pool and spa
Two parking spaces
Irvine Unified School District

What will be considered? Woodbridge’s prime location, South Lake recreational facilities, top schools and relaxed community setting will all weigh in here, along with the home’s comfortable size, finish and price. The interior is nicely detailed and maintained. The exterior will need some trim work, and the new buyers may want to consider adding additional upgrades.

Who will choose this home?  An active family looking for a good sized home with enough bedrooms in the Woodbridge area may be attracted to this one.  A couple who has frequent guests or needs space for an older family member will be attracted to the downstairs bedroom and convenient Irvine location.
