Your North Tustin Rancho

What’s the one thing we can’t make more of? Land…and this house has it. Don’t let the Foothill Blvd address fool you, this home is actually located off a private street so it’s quiet and secluded. We’ve been noticing a trend the last few years…young and old families alike are flocking to homes with space. If you look at new construction homes, it is impossible to find any properties with lots of 22,000 square feet these days. And for good reason…it doesn’t pencil out. Why would any builder construct one home on 22,000 square feet of land for $2M (at the high end) when they could build 4 McMansions for $1.5M each? The net result: we think homes like these will be even scarcer and even more special in the future.

But if you’re like us (and we know you are, because you’re here reading this), you need a healthy dose of style with your space. And that’s why this home is a standout. Many of the homes in North Tustin are custom homes that reflect the personalities, hopes, and dreams of the original owner. The original owner of this home must have dreamed big. 2600 square feet might not seem like a lot, but it’s the way the space is configured. And there’s a covered outdoor pool rec room that could easily hold 50 people — and that’s not even included in the square footage. This may not be your dream home, aesthetically…but it could be. It’s a great base to start from. It’s situated majestically far from the curb. But it’s the vaulted ceilings and walls of glass on the back that make this home a great target for your dream renovation. We like the price point, too. At $1.1M there is actually room to do the things you want to do. I also like the height difference in the back yard — sometimes a big open space is just too big. This provides some nice delineation. And while the kidney-shaped pool may not be the latest design, there’s some classic — no — iconic about the shape that makes it all work.
