San Carlos Serendipity


I just happened to pass by this open house at 105 Rockridge Road, San Carlos, on Sunday and decided to turn the car around and nip in for a look, and I’m sure glad I did. I think you’re gonna like this one. Located in a great neighborhood in the hills of San Carlos, this 5 BR/2 BA home has been completely remodeled, down to the studs as I understand it. And the quality of the work and amenities is nothing short of wonderful. Clean lines, classic wood floors, recessed lighting, wine cooler, slate and granite…and a killer view of the bay and surrounding area.

Essentially a new home, this corner lot property sits on two levels, has all new fencing and has professional landscaping in front, back, and side yards. While nothing ornate or architecturally interesting about the front façade, once you climb the stairs to the entry, and open the door, you find a very liveable home, great for entertaining and able to accommodate a big family.

The main level features a large open floorplan encompassing living/dining/gourmet kitchen, with doors leading out to a back patio, lawn, and well-planted greenbelt. A huge picture window in the front allows you to see the peninsula and over to the East Bay. Off the living area, there is one bedroom, one full bathroom, and a master suite, featuring a good-size walk-in closet, and well-appointed master bath (with a raised sink height that my tall family would envy). Off the kitchen is a stairway leading down to the bottom level, where three good-sized bedrooms, one bath, and the 2-car garage with laundry facilities reside. This level was unfurnished, so you can get a good idea of room size.
On the market for 65 days, this property is priced at $1,575,000 ($662/square foot) and is in move-in condition. If you are in the market for a larger home in a good school district, and this is in your budget, I highly suggest you take a look.
