Luxury Condos in West Sacramento: New Listing from Elizabeth Weintraub
When you’re looking for luxury condos in West Sacramento, you owe it to yourself to check out Riva on the River. These condos were built at the height of the real estate market in 2005, just before the crash, so many of these units had been short sales during the early downturn of the market. But that dip in the Sacramento real estate market has rebounded pretty much by now, and condos in this complex are selling like hotcakes. Although, come to think of it, using that simile, I don’t know how well iHop is doing these days. Who cares. The association fee by itself at Riva on the River is reason enough to buy. It’s only $220 a month. That’s relatively affordable as compared to the fees for competitive homeowner associations. Why, a few of the larger luxury condos at the Sawyer Residences are rumored to be planning an HOA assessment of nearly $4,000 a month!
This new listing is like a gem, though, unlike probably any other of the luxury condos in West Sacramento. The reason is the sellers bought this condo for cash and have never lived in it year-round. It’s a vacation home. And it looks like nobody has ever lived there. Everything is spotless and so new and shiny and pretty. No chips in the sink or counters. Immaculate condition. It’s like it’s been preserved in a time warp.
The condo is situated with northern orientation. The seller say this positioning keeps it cool in the summer and they rarely run the AC. It also reportedly stays warm in the winter, enough that they usually do not turn on the heat. It is also a first-floor unit and is a single-level, which is in high demand in West Sacramento right now. It features 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Off the entrance is a formal dining area and a chandelier. The family room features a fireplace, and the kitchen has granite counters, plus a dining bar in addition to space for a breakfast table. One of the other special attributes is the covered patio accessible from the master suite. I’ve seen some owners in the complex grow vines that provide more privacy on the patio.
You’ll also get a two-car garage with an extra storage room, maybe 6-feet by 8-feet for all that stuff that has to go somewhere, you just don’t know where to put it. Pets are allowed by the HOA, and there is a swimming pool and recreation facilities. Plus, the location of the unit is toward the back of the complex, close to the river levee, so traffic is at a minimum in that particular area.
