Turtle Rock Cottage With A Mix of Options
18705 Paseo Picasso $799,900
This breezy, light filled single level home is tucked into the corner of Turtle Rock that is bordered by Culver and Campus Drive. Nicely remodeled and freshly painted, the home is at the end of a cul de sac, with a privacy wall off the patio that backs up to a busy Culver Street. I was there on a Saturday afternoon and some traffic noise was apparent on the back patio. Additional foliage or fountains could be used as sound buffers. As a three bedroom, two bath attached home, the broker claims the $799,900 price is the least expensive home in Turtle Rock.
Significant Numbers: Built in 1974, the home has been on the market about 10 days. The home is 1,561 sq. ft. at $512 a square foot. The lot size is 3,485 sq. ft. and HOA dues are $100 a month.
Close up: Stepping into the entry, a large wood floored room offers a nice sweep of open space for the living room and dining area. There is an atrium on one side and patio with raised planter beds on the other. Sleek light wood floors, high ceilings and bold paint accents work well here. A newly remodeled kitchen with granite counters and a good sized window is ahead on the left with a hall to the master bedroom and bath on the right. The master also opens onto the patio.
Remodeling has worked throughout the home, updating the kitchen, moving a wall and changing a bar in the dining room into a roomy set of drawers for the master bath, and setting up the atrium for the spa. The house has also been replumbed so there are no pipes in the slab and there is a tankless water heater. There's also a motorized awning on the patio and ceiling fans throughout. The roof has been replaced and a new skylight opens to cool the house.
What should be considered? The freshly painted open space, updating and remodeling, location and price of this home will all be weighed. Also, University High and the University of California, Irvine are just around the corner.
Who will move in? Someone looking for a central spot in Irvine near UCI may check this home. Also, buyers looking to find all living space on one level may consider this three bedroom, two bath in Turtle Rock.
