At the beginning of the month I reviewed the same layout as 1 Clinton at18 Prescott, less the loft. You can read it to get a comparison of the two properties. 1 Clinton is a two level townhome with two bedrooms. It is located in an area with very low traffic due to surrounding cul-de-sac streets. Unlike 18 Prescott, I did not notice any street noise from Irvine Boulevard, but 19 Prescott made small changes to update the home. This home is an end unit which brings in additional light in the staircase and provides more privacy in the patio area. The price has recently dropped from the $549,000 price to $529,000
Asking Price: $529,000
HOA dues are $245 per month and there are no Mello Roos taxes.
Upon entry the staircase is immediately to the right. To the left is the living room with cathedral ceilings. A short hallway with a coat closet and bathroom is straight ahead which leads to the kitchen and dining area.
The home has glossy laminate wood flooring, cream carpet in the living room, staircase, upstairs hallway and bedrooms. The carpet looks worn and has lumps upstairs. With this being an end unit, it is a light and bright home with multiple large windows in the front and back. The windows are original.
The living room has cathedral ceilings, which provides a sense of spaciousness and a large window bringing in a lot of light. The fireplace is located next to the front windows.
The bathroom has been updated with a new pedestal sink and mirror. The flooring is a basic tile.
The kitchen has original cabinets with no hardware, white appliances and clean 4x4 tile countertops. The original fluorescent lights have been replaced with recessed lighting, partially raising part of the ceiling. The kitchen has an open solution with a peninsula long enough for some bar seating. It overlooks the dining area. There is plenty of cabinets and counter space but it lacks a pantry. 18 Prescott’s kitchen also had original cabinets, but they were painted white and had added hardware.
To the left is the indoor laundry room. On the left is space for a side-by-side washer on the dryer. On the right are additional lower and upper cabinets for more storage, which is a nice feature.
The dining area sits in front of the sliding glass door. It is a nice spacious area. The back patio is large for a townhome. It has a small area for entertaining. The garage entrance is located in the patio. Although 18 Prescott had grass and fruit trees, it is nice that this patio only has one neighboring wall, so it creates more of a private and open feel to the back.
On the wall of the staircase is a large frosted window that brings in additional natural light into the home. Once upstairs there is hallway lined with some linen cabinets on the right hand side.
The master bedroom is to the right. The ceilings are high and a large window looks out to the patio. The bathroom is located through a large opening. Without a privacy door into the master bathroom some of the light and noise may travel into the sleeping area in the morning and evenings, but there is a curtain that currently hangs at the opening. There are two sets of mirrored sliding doors in the bathroom. To the left is a single original sink. The counter top and painted white cabinets look original, but the hardware has been updated. Next to the sink is the separate shower and toilet. The shower base looks a bit worn, but the original 4x4 tile walls are in good condition.
The secondary bedroom is a standard size with double mirrored sliding closet doors . Next to the room is the shared bathroom. It has tile floors and a new pedestal sink. The tub/shower combo is original but has new glass window sliding doors.
1 Clinton is a basic townhome with a nice sized patio. In comparison to 18 Prescott, there are trade-offs. There is the extra small loft in Prescott and a nicely landscaped patio, but 1 Clinton is an end-unit. The home feeds into great Irvine schools: Brywood Elementary, Sierra Vista Middle School and Northwood High School.
