Turtle Rock Crest Home With a Knockout View
Turning off of Turtle Rock Drive, driving up Ridgeline and then turning on Andromeda, the view just keeps getting better. When you reach 1 Mira, this condo on the end in a quiet cul de sac seems to have it all with a panoramic view from every room of canyons, hills and city lights. I have seen a lot of view locations and light filled homes in Turtle Rock and Woodbridge, but this one ranks near the top.
Backing up the view with a spotless presentation, a three car garage, and many recent upgrades, this new to the market Turtle Rock condo was attracting quite a bit of attention in its first open house this past Saturday.
Significant Numbers: Built in 1986, this 3 bedroom, 2 and a half bath contemporary condo has 2,630 sq. ft. at $600 per sq. ft. HOA dues are $705. New to the market, 6 days, this single level view home has recent upgrades throughout and new soft scaping in the front courtyard. Bonita Canyon Elementary, Rancho San Joaquin Middle School and University High School serve the community of 113 homes.
Close up: As you walk up from the curb and take in the view from the driveway, there is a good sized patio courtyard on the right.
Stepping inside, the view is framed with large windows and high ceilings. Straight ahead, there are steps to the living room with a raised fireplace followed by the view deck.
The other rooms all radiate out from the living room with a family room that opens onto the front patio, the kitchen with another comfortable family area, large formal dining room, and powder room off the main entry.
The many windows, high ceilings, plantation shutters and built in bookcases capitalize on the floor plan and the light. Ceramic and travertine tile, new wood laminate flooring, fresh muted neutral colors and new baseboards add to the finish.
The kitchen has a view window too, new tile backsplash, granite counters, island and stainless appliances.
The large master bedroom and bath suite with tub and shower and the other bedrooms and full bath are off to the right. One of the extra bedrooms also has new wainscotting.
Overall, as a comfortable setting for family activities or a smooth base of operations for entertaining, this condo has it all in hand.
Overall Evaluation: The prime view location in Turtle Rock, coupled with an immaculate, recently upgraded finish will help this condo compete in the Irvine market. The home manages to offer the striking visual appeal of a condo with much of the comfort and ease of a single family home.
Who will move in? A young family looking for Turtle Rock’s top schools at all levels, and extensive outdoor parks and trails, or a busy couple with a long list of entertaining obligations will be drawn to this very livable home. As a single level home, it will also attract mature buyers looking for a convenient all one level floor plan. The three car garage could be perfect for an active family with busy teens.
