Open House Review: 40 Sandpiper

Posted: 08 Aug 2014 04:00 AM PDT

Woodbridge Detached Remodeled Single Family Home Inside the Loop
40 Sandpiper $875,000

Turning off of West Yale Loop onto Stonecreek takes you to this single level 3 bedroom, 2 bath single family home on Sandpiper.  This home raises some questions. It has a polished remodeling with added square footage, pristine outdoor setting, and inside loop Woodbridge location. But it has been moving slowly through the market. It was listed in May at $999,000  and has been reduced to $875,000.  Traffic was busy at last week’s open house as a number of couples checked it out.

Significant Numbers: Built in 1976, this 1,900  sq. foot, single level home is $461 a sq. ft.  HOA dues are $82 a month.  The lot size is 4,356 sq. ft.  There are no Mello Roos taxes.

Close up: As you pull up to the curb, the home is immaculate. Flagstone hardscape leads to a gated courtyard  with raised flower beds that circles around the home to a sleek spa retreat in the rear.

Inside, the custom look continues. To the left there is a formal living room with built-in cabinetry, vaulted ceilings, dramatic windows, window seat, and large fireplace.

Straight ahead there is a formal dining room with custom lighting and wainscoting.

To the right, the kitchen has granite counters, center island, glassed cabinetry and a garden window.

A breakfast room with built-in window seat overlooks the patio along with the light filled family room that has French doors opening to the patio where there is a custom spa and built-in barbecue.  The space is snug, but well used.

To  achieve the deluxe master suite an original atrium was turned into a huge carpeted retreat complete with skylights and separate office/study with built-in cabinetry and two person desk.  There is a double vanity and two closets. The bathroom has original tile.

There are two more carpeted small bedrooms and a full bath also with original tile. The laundry is in the garage.

Throughout the home gleaming hardwood floors and bedroom carpeting, custom cabinetry, recessed lighting and well placed windows work.

What should be considered? Woodbridge’s community credentials, beach club ambiance and easy access to Irvine and Orange County will be plusses for this elegant single family home.  Even though the home is inside the loop, the distance from the beach club will be compared. Other properties such as 11 Mandarin, that recently sold, are closer.

Who will move in?  Someone looking for a detached single family home that is all on one level, and has been nicely remodeled and maintained, may consider this one. Professional couples, small families or mature buyers who want the home to be an easy extension of their lives will welcome the sleek spa and bbq, easy outside upkeep and comfortable master retreat. Good sized active families with middle school or high school kids may be tempted by the location and excellent schools, but find the outside space confining.
