The original asking price of $850,000 dropped since the first days the home was listed. On March 4, the price was reduced to $839,900 which I think better reflects the home and some of the recent sales in the area.
HOA dues are $85 per month and there no are Mello Roos taxes.
With it being on a zero-lot-line there are no windows on one side of the home. This house has laminate flooring throughout the first floor, on the staircase and landing of the second floor. It also has clean carpet in the bedrooms, scraped ceilings, clean interior paint and plantation shutters throughout. The windows are mostly original and one of the shared bathrooms is a mix of new and old. The backyard backs to Hicks Canyon (a non-residential street), and although it is not a major street, I could hear the random cars drive by. This house sits on a corner, with Hicks Canyon behind it, the entrance to Entrada East and West on the side, and Entrada West in front of it. However, Entrada wraps around a corner and is a cul-de-sac street so there is not a lot of traffic. The backyard was mostly brick with a corner with dirt, but is advertised to be getting new sod.
The home is walking distance to the community pools and elementary school.
Upon entry, a short hallway and the stairs are directly in front of you and the living room is to the left. To the right, behind the open door, is the dining room. The living room and entrance have cathedral ceilings. There is plenty of light in the rooms and a set of glass French doors are located in the dining room, leading out the backyard.
The kitchen and family room are at the back of the house. The kitchen was remodeled with new cabinets and man-made countertop. The old panel lighting was removed and recessed lighting was installed. The appliances are white and the kitchen is in excellent condition. There is space for bar stools on the family room side of the large counter.
The rectangular family room is pretty standard, with a remodeled fireplace at one end and a new sliding door out to the backyard. In the back corner is a small nook that has built-in upper cabinets.
The backyard has a built-in bar-b-q and is has a brick patio with a small dirt corner that looks like it once had grass.
The half bath downstairs is located at the back of the family room, next to the garage entrance. It has a newer pedestal sink and tile flooring. A hall closet is found under the stairs.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms. The master is located at the front of home, above the garage. It’s a decent size room with new carpet and cathedral ceilings. Two sets of large windows bring in an abundance of light. The remodeled bathroom is located through a large opening and has two sinks and plenty of counter space. Travertine floors, new light wood cabinets and a man-made countertop have been installed. To the left is a walk-in closet. To the right is the separate shower with plain 4x4 tiles and a toilet. There is no tub in the master.
The shared bathroom located outside of the master bedroom has newer sinks but the cabinets are original. The tub/shower combo and flooring look like they were outdated.
The other three bedrooms are average in size and are in nice condition with new carpet and clean painted. Two have a large window looking out towards the backyard, which also looks out to Hicks Canyon. The first bedroom has built-in closet organizers behind the mirrored sliding closet doors. The other two have smaller closets.
2 Entrada West is a great home for a family. The home is move-in ready and close to the schools and community’s amenities. However, one deciding factor would be the location. The streets do not have high traffic, but having traffic on three sides of the house may want to be considered.
