Carlsbad Townhome Bargain Near the Beach
Carlsbad, CA–Sometimes people live in homes so gently that years barely wear on the surfaces.
Cabinets still gleam with their original finishes, tiling sparkles, and nothing has soiled the walls. Even paintings are hung on steel straight pins in order to avoid nail holes.
We just listed such a home in South Carlsbad’s highly-desired Las Playas. The owner of this Carlsbad townhome bought her 1292 square-foot residence in 1986–and has tenderly cared for it ever since.
Her initial attraction to this Carlsbad condo development was its wonderful location so close to beautiful beaches and other North San Diego County attractions. The location of this 1292 square-foot Mediterranean-styled residence within Las Playas was also very appealing. The broad front lawn, the quiet tree-lined street and nearby pool all made the setting an irresistible one.
Inside is an open living area with fireplace, a sunny kitchen with view, two bedrooms with baths, downstairs guest bath and mirrored closet doors. A detached 2-car rear garage is adjoined to the home via a spacious private patio–and is entered through an alley. The exterior has been freshly painted and monthly HOA fees are only $202 per month.
The price? A true bargain at $389,000. The owner is packing, so the home is not in the MLS yet–nor is it a short sale, Carlsbad foreclosure or bank-owned home.
