New to the Market Woodbridge Upscale Remodel
Rainstar is a serene street nestled close to South Lake in Woodbridge, just the right spot for perfecting a single family home. That’s how I found 5 Rainstar to be in this new to the market open house. Overall, it’s a sublime setting and a sleek remodel.
Significant numbers: This 4 bedroom, 2.75 bath floor plan uses 2,411 square feet to good advantage in this two level JM Peters single family home. The HOA dues are $82 a month and it is $413/sq. ft. Built in 1980 on a 5,000 sq. ft. lot, the home has been extensively remodeled.
Close-up: Everything clicks from the curb on through to the lush backyard retreat. Approaching the home, walking past a lemon tree and numerous flowering plants, establishes a mood of perfection. Inside the mood continues with oak hardwood floors and a vaulted ceiling in a formal living room punctuated with new skylights. The living room overlooks an elegant formal dining room.
On through the home a casual dining area is flanked by a sleek kitchen and a good sized family room that has been nicely developed with built in bookcases, fireplace and a wall of sliding glass doors opening to a professionally landscaped private tropical retreat.
The kitchen is remodeled with marble countertops, top of the line stainless appliances including a 6 burner gas stove, Bosch double ovens and dual dishwashers.
There is a guest bedroom and fully remodeled bath on the main floor that would also work as an office. Upstairs, two more bedrooms with cherry hardwood floors have a full hall bath remodeled with travertine and marble countertops.
The master suite with fireplace, vaulted ceilings and private balcony has a remodeled master bath with dual vanities, separate travertine shower and Jacuzzi tub. The walk in closet has custom built-ins.
What will be considered? The key location near South Lake in Woodbridge paired with an extensive remodeling of a good sized single family home will be noted and weighed with the price. In a shrinking market someone looking for an investment or an upgraded single family home in Irvine might be taking a second look.
Who will move in? A young active family might make good use of the space and Woodbridge’s top recreational facilities and schools. The local elementary school is just around the corner. A couple who entertains and needs downstairs space for guests will also see the options here.
Recent listings: 8 Rainstar, $885,950; 44 Gilman, $725,000.
