The Crosby Villas in the Rancho Santa Fe neighborhood of THE CROSBY had their Grand Opening on February 13,2010. California West Communities has taken over the sales of this popular product which was originally sold by John Laing homes. The pricing starts in the low $800′s which represents excellent value in the current market. They are the perfect choice for people who are looking for low maintenance homes in a gated area with a superior location. There will be 31 homes with 20 having views of the 15,16 and 18th fairways of the award winning Crosby Golf Course.
They are located within walking distance to the Crosby Clubhouse and Sports Center. Membership to this private club is optional, www.thecrosbyclub.com. The golf course is an award winning Fred Couples 18 hole course with fabulous facilities; beautifully appointed dining rooms including a restaurant courtyard with many social and golfing events planned. The sports facility features a junior Olympic pool, 4 tennis courts, fitness facility and a spa.
The floor plans of the Villas range from 2-4 bedrooms, 2.5-4 baths and 3034-3612 square feet. Designed by Scheurer Architects they can be customized to the buyers personal tastes and floor plan preferences. Each one has unique and carefully planned designs for maximum space and function. I personally love the Plan 2 with a downstairs master suite, a lovely great room which faces the back of the home to take advantage of sweeping fairway views , a downstairs den or Bedroom 4 and two spacious bedrooms on the upper level. The exteriors reflect interest with architectural details and varied site elevations. Read the rest of this entry »

Monteluz, A California West Community had their grand opening last weekend and according to their sales staff was a great success. I love these homes!! The location is fabulous being near 56 for commuters and I-15 and of course being part of the 92127, 4S Ranch Community! I have blogged on 4S Ranch previously as it is a favorite of mine and the residents who live there already! The schools are part of award winning Poway Unified School District and are newly built, the children can walk to their grade schools in many locations. The shopping, restaurants, dry cleaners, hair salons, and library are all centrally located. The parks are also an added attraction to residents along with the miles of walking trails. The Boys and Girls Club offers an array of classes and activities for the children. Read the rest of this entry »
I find it fascinating to review photos of homes that are posted on the MLS. There is a very popular agent in Las Vegas who blogs about the worst pictures; www.veryvintagevegas.com. I decided to take the high road and do regular reviews of the best pictures. I must say it is not the easiest to do. It is far easier to find the worst and I might add the “worst of the worst.” I will be tempted from time to time to throw one of these in..just can’t help myself and you readers need some entertainment. So what do agents” not get” about taking pictures? According to the last study by NAR, it was reported that 87% of all home buyers used the Internet as an information source. It is now 2110 (yikes) and we all know this percentage has gone up. Buyers review all the basic facts on the listings; bedrooms, baths, view, square footage, price..all the boring stuff but come on it is the pictures that set their heart a flutter and make them hit that “I want more information” email button or actually pick up the phone and say “I want to see that view for myself!”
My suggestions to the sellers out there that are contemplating listing their homes….
Ask to see pictures and virtual tours that your agent has posted on prior listings that have sold. Take a good look!
Insist the agent use a professional photographer and do pictures as well as a virtual tour if possible. If the home is vacant sometimes a virtual tour is just not appropriate. Read the rest of this entry »
Why do reside love their Verrazzano home… simple, location, climate, architectural appeal, value and because the neighborhood borders perfection! Every time I drive down the tree lined streets I remind myself I am in California and not some European village! This wonderful neighborhood is located in the 92127 zip code in North San Diego County. It is adjacent to upscale Fairbanks Ranch in Rancho Santa Fe and across the street form the gated SANTALUZ neighborhood. The commute for people needing to get to San Diego is convenient with access to 56 and a quick hop on 5 or 15 to a 25 minute drive to downtown or the airport. Shopping is a quick 15 minutes to the new 4S Ranch center in Rancho Bernardo. The Sorrento Valley High Tech hub is a close 15 minutes and you can have sand between your toes on the beaches of Del Mar in the same time. The climate is nearly perfect year round with coastal breezes. The architectural appeal of this lovely homes leaves little to improve upon. They have distinct character and most have been landscaped to perfection! Read the rest of this entry »
