We love it! Some days we get up and want to scream at the computer screen — “no good houses” — and then some days, like today, we see homes like these. This is the kind of house that might not look at the unusual, at first glance. Cute ranch house in North Tustin…yada yada yada…but then you look a little closer. And you start to see the cool block screen wall out front — a novel, but not-so-novel approach to privacy. Then you notice the cool cantilevered from steps and you realize that this one might be kinda cool on the inside.
And it is! And it’s priced reasonably. And it’s on a big private lot, too. This is exactly the property most of us dream of. It’s well-maintained, but there’s still plenty of room to maximize its potential. Inside you’ll find big rooms, and one of my favorite fireplaces that I’ve seen in a while. This is the kind of house you might move up to and stretch the budget because it’s perfectly livable exactly as-is, and you can do the improvements over time.
So let’s talk about those for a moment. I like the landscaping. It’s mature in a way that can’t really be bought and restrained. Sometimes I feel like people try to do too much. My biggest complaint with this house is the paint colors, actually. I think the color scheme needs to be a little bolder, a little less monochromatic, and it needs to pander to something other than the lowest-common-denominator. This home can easily be bold and beautiful. Inside, it’s the same situation. The kitchen isn’t my favorite, but it’s white so it can blend into the background while you design (and let’s be honest, save for) a new one.
Are you dying to see the rest of the inside like we are? We can make that happen.
