Open House Review: 11 Mandarin

Posted: 04 Feb 2014 04:00 AM PST

Woodbridge One Story Single Family North Lake Home
11 Mandarin                            $1,000,000

Just steps from the North Lake Beach Club, this one story single family Woodbridge home offers a prime inside the loop location on a quiet cul de sac. New to the market, it will be interesting to see how it competes with other Irvine homes in this price range. It shows well, but there have been others on the market in this price range near South Lake with more assets. A few of those sold the first week they were listed.

Significant Numbers: Just listed 4 days ago, this single family home was built in 1976.  The square footage is 1,895 and the lot size is 4,792 sq. ft. HOA dues are $82 and the price per sq. ft. is $528. The home is all on one level with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. 

Closeup:  Starting with a strong curbside presence, the home has a courtyard entry with flourishing rose garden. Inside, a wood floored entry opens to a light filled central atrium, and family room and living room with dramatic stone mantel fireplace wall on the right.

On the left, a main hallway leads to the master bedroom and bath and two more bedrooms and bath.   The good sized master bedroom that opens onto the patio has a sitting area and mirrored closet doors. Double doors open to a large master bath with tile floors, skylight, enclosed shower and sunken tub.  Two more bedrooms and a full bath with tile floor and glass enclosed tub open off of the main hallway that also has a double skylight.

Throughout the home an indoor/outdoor effect is created with windows and doors overlooking the nicely landscaped patio that wraps around the living room, dining room and master bedroom. The brick trimmed, partially covered patio has room for dining and cooking and raised planters for an assortment of gardens.

A large dining room also opens onto the patio, and pairs with an updated kitchen. The windowed kitchen has granite counters, newer appliances and a custom backsplash.

Plantation shutters, wood, tile, carpet and fresh paint inside and out all give the home a finished look. Newer dual paned vinyl windows and sliding doors throughout work well with the double skylights and cathedral ceilings.

Overall Evaluation:  A key location Inside the loop in Woodbridge, on a quiet cul de sac, just steps from the North Lake Beach Club, adds value to this home. Other homes on the block have expanded their space with a second level above the master bedroom. Fresh paint, skylights and updates in windows, kitchen, and bath boost the  marketability.

Who will move in? An active family that’s drawn to Woodbridge’s top schools and the North Beach location with prime water recreation may consider this home. The convenient one level may attract more mature buyers or families with an older member. Others may consider the one level floor plan as an opportunity to expand with a second level.
