Open House Review: 223 Mayfair

Posted: 16 Dec 2013 04:00 AM PST

Today I am reviewing 223 Mayfair in the newer Stonegate community.  It is a three bedroom, three bathroom two-level condominium, with one of the bedrooms on the first floor.  The home is a corner property, sharing a wall on one side of the home.   The price has been reduced twice from the original asking price of $745,000.  After parking along the street, I had to walk down a small alley, passing several garages in order to reach the sidewalk with the home’s entrance.  However there seems to be plenty of street parking on both sides of the home. 

Asking Price: $699,000
Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 2.75
Square Footage: 1,614
Lot Size:  1,800 sq ft
Price per Square Foot: $433
Property Type: Residential, Condominium
Style: Two Level
Year Built: 2012
Community: Stonegate
HOA Fees: $308
Mello Roos: Yes
Days on Market: 35

Upon entry, a short wall immediately to the left separates the entryway from the living room area.  The living room flows into the open kitchen solution.  To the right is a short hallway consisting of the staircase, a bedroom and a bathroom.  Beyond the small hallway is a coat closet.  The small entryway has tile flooring while the living room and downstairs bedroom are carpeted.  The kitchen and all of the bathrooms have linoleum flooring that looks like tile. 


The living room has 3 side-by-side windows facing out the front of the home and two sets of windows on the perpendicular wall.  The living room flows directly into the open kitchen, which has a sliding glass door out to the small patio.  There is no defined dining area so a small table could sit in the area between the island and living room. 

The kitchen has white cabinets, granite countertop and backsplash and stainless steel appliances.  It has a rectangular island with space for bar seating.  The island contains the sink and dishwasher.  Along the wall behind the island is the oven/stovetop combo with plenty of cabinets and counter space.  The garage door entry is also found on the back wall.  Along the perpendicular wall are a small counter area, microwave and refrigerator.  Although it has plenty of cabinets, it lacks a true pantry, unless someone prefers to use the coat closet for a pantry.

The small patio is accessible from the kitchen sliding door.  It is a small rectangular area with pavers, surrounded by a cinderblock wall.  It provides the opportunity to sit outdoors or place a bar-b-que outside, but it is not big enough to entertain outdoors. 

The downstairs bedroom has two windows facing the front of the house.  It has a two-door sliding closet.  The bathroom has a single sink and a large shower with bench.  The shower has 4x4 white tile.  The flooring is same style linoleum as in the in kitchen.  

Upstairs is a built in desk with cabinets on the landing, another secondary bedroom with en suite bathroom, and the master bedroom with balcony.  Immediately to the right is the built in desk overlooking the staircase.  There are 3 drawers to the left and 3 cabinet doors to the right of the desk table.  This makes a great nook to set up an office area, to do homework or keep some files. 

Along the wall behind the desk is the secondary bedroom. A single window looks out towards the front of the house.  It appears to be of similar size as the downstairs bedroom and also has a two-door sliding closet.  The en suite bathroom has a single sink and a large tub/shower combo.  The sink area has plenty of counter space.  The shower and tub-surround is the same 4x4 white tile as the shower downstairs. 

At the end of the hallway is the master bedroom.  There is an abundance of natural light flooding the room with three windows and a set of french doors.  The french doors lead out to a veranda which faces the front of the house.  On the opposite wall are a good sized walk-in closet and  bathroom entrance.  There is no bathroom door which leaves an open doorway leading to a linen closet, dual sinks, large tub, shower and a separate toilet.  There was an option for a bathroom door in the original plans, so I assume one can be installed if desired.  The vanity, mirrors, and tile match the same style as the other bathrooms.  A window sits above the foot of the toilet, which brings in some natural light. 

Outside of the master bedroom is a closet for a stackable washer and dryer. 

223 Mayfair will appeal to buyers looking for a bedroom on the first level.  It is in excellent condition.  The paint and carpet are clean, as well as the bathrooms and kitchen.  In my opinion, the only major downfalls to the home are a lack of a kitchen pantry and the small size of the patio.
