Today’s Los Altos/Los Altos Hills Real Estate tour consisted of 14 single family homes priced from $1,290,000 to $5,195,000. Eleven of these homes are new listings and 3 are properties being re-toured. Below are some of my thoughts on today’s tour.
1142 Lisa Lane – Listed by Brandon Schaeffer of Coldwell Banker. This is an original 3 bedroom 2 bath home on a large lot. The hardwood floors are quite nice and the spacious yard make this a home to buy and, within a few years, do a major expansion. The list price is $1,290,000.
932 Parma Way – Listed by Marc Roos of Intero Real Estate. This also is a home in original condition on an over-sized 14K+ lot. The front part of the lot is smaller than the back, so someone will need to have a good architect to design a good floor plan for the lot. The list price is $1,698,000.
530 Torwood Court – Listed by Anne Ward of Coldwell Banker. This is a tastefully remodeled 3 bedroom 3 bath home that backs to the creek. A nice home at the end of a cul-de-sac, but not a whole lot of space in the backyard. The list price is $2,195,000.
316 Sunkist Lane – Listed by Chin Hsu of Alain Pinel Realtors. This is a very clean 4 bedroom 4.5 bath home near the end of a cul-de-sac. The list price is $3,380,000.
204 Alvarado Avenue – Listed by David Troyer of Intero Real Estate. This is a 5 bedroom 4+ bath home with a nice wine cellar. The house was tastefully done and the backyard has a great swimming pool and entertainment area. The only downside to this home is the next door neighbor’s property – it’s not nearly as nice. I thought this was the best home on today’s tour. The list price is $4,650,000.
12011 Greenhills Court, Los Altos Hills – Listed by Judy Bogard and Sheri Hughes of Alain Pinel. Good house and location, but it appears that it hasn’t been updated at all. One could easily spend a lot of coin remodeling this one. However, it might be worth it because the location and usable yard are great. I think the list price is a little aggressive at $5,195,000.
1625 Hazelaar Way – Listed by Lorraine Combs of the Sereno Group. This 3 bedroom 2 bath home has an odd floor-plan, no master bedroom and no garage. However, two of the bedrooms are quite large. The list price is $1,499,000.
975 Berry Avenue – Listed by Cindy Mattison of Coldwell Banker. Odd house, odd floor-plan, and large but irregular lot. The list price is $1,798,000.
1285 Richardson Avenue – Listed by Catherine Qian of Intero Real Estate Services. This is a renovated and expanded home located on the corner of Richardson and Grant Road. Uninspiring! The list price is $2,388,000.
