No More Yada, Yada, Yada

Certain experiences stick out in your memory as a Realtor, and I’ll never forget the time an agent was showing me her listing, enumerating the upgrades like granite counters, travertine floors, and then she just said “yada, yada, yada.” I don’t think she was trying to denigrate her listing, but she did. It made me realize just how generic certain upgrades and houses could be. Not this one.

This is one of those houses I have driven by 1,000 times and even toured once before, the last time it was for sale. It’s on one of my favorite streets in North Tustin (who doesn’t want to live on Hyde Park?”). So it has the pre-requisite schools and low crime. But it’s the design of the house that really makes it stand out. From the very unique (not just in North Tustin, but anywhere) barrel-vaulted ceiling in the living room to the wall of glass on the back, this isn’t a typical North Tustin Tuscan. It’s something special. Oh yeah, and how could I forget mentioning the kitchen island with the lime-green Caesarstone (the only time I’ve ever seen it installed outside of a showroom).

While the house itself is amazing, I’m especially drawn to the landscaping and pool area. It feels generous, mature, and established — all things that aren’t easily faked. And frankly, aren’t that common. Lately, we’ve been a bit bummed about the prices in North Tustin. $1M+ big ranches — which are nice — but there’s no sense of occasion. This home looks and feels special. A home like this is a gift to yourself and your family (and let’s not forgot, your friends, too).

But don’t take our word for it. This is one you’ll have to experience, in person, to fully understand. Call us for a private showing.
