Fremont: Hot Summer Nights

I don’t even know where to begin with this house at 974 Vanda Way. All I know is that I am ready to move into it myself. You can feel all the love and care put into this home.


It starts out with an enclosed brick and cement courtyard in the front that invites summer evening entertaining. The patio wraps around to the backyard with lush foliage everywhere. The kitchen is spectacular. It’s huge with one whole wall devoted to baking including a huge oven. And there’s that wonderful kitchen island that I love only this one is bigger than most. There’s a 6 burner (gas) stovetop as well as a breakfast nook.

Then I was off to the formal yet comfy dining room with a built in hutch. Step down to a rugged southwestern type living room/family room with a fireplace and open-beam ceiling. Go through a small bedroom and you walk into a master bedroom that is glorious with a matching master bath. The bedroom across the hall has its own bathroom. The two other bedrooms are nice sized and one has built-in shelves and drawers along the wall. Add a sound system built into most areas of the house with a master control panel and this house will not be on the market long at the price of $1,100,000. And because it is in the much-desired Niles area of Fremont, you had better hurry for this one.
