Rancho Cordova listing agent
Sneak peek of this Rancho Cordova home rehab in progress was surprising. The owner told me she had updated the entire house both interior and exterior except for the slab, the electrical and the plumbing inside the walls. This photo above shows the kitchen with upgraded shaker cream colored cabinets. A glass tile backsplash, with upgraded counter slabs and black appliances.
This feels like a modern but functional kitchen. A popular five burner gas stove to cook with, dishwasher and microwave, completes the appliance package. Do not miss the double stainless sinks under the kitchen window which looks onto the large backyard.
If your heart desires a super big, oversized and lush back-yard to go with those 5 bedrooms and 4 baths you’ve been yearning for, here is your new home in the Anatolia Village of Rancho Cordova. This home is located within a few blocks from the delightful Anatolia HOA clubhouse, which is a vacation paradise in itself. Apart from the 3 pools, one of which is adult only, you’ll find a couple of spas, a BBQ, tennis and basketball courts and, did I mention, the Anatolia HOA offers a free childcare program?
Nestled on a culdesac in Anatolia Rancho Cordova, surrounded by neighbors who all seem to know and like each other, the seller says what they will miss most are the neighbors. I suspect the sellers will greatly miss the gorgeous back-yard to which they paid painstaking attention to detail to such matters as installing gutters with downspouts along the covered patio, putting in exterior ceiling fans, additional lighting and pouring the stamped concrete patio. The covered patio is so big it could provide space for a 10-piece band with room left over for a dance floor.
The front entrance boasts a drought friendly garden of flowers, vegetation, stepping stones and a couple of benches. It lends a lot of curb appeal, and complements the majestic stone and stucco exterior. If you have a boat, as long as the top doesn’t stick over the fence, the double gates swing open to a concrete pad on the left side of the home that you can utilize as RV storage. Or, you can use the extra space in the attached 3-car garage, which also has ceiling fans and additional receptacles.
The interior of the home is open and spacious, featuring soaring ceilings, and the seller upgraded the custom paint for durability. Of course, you’ll find granite counters in the kitchen, an island, stainless appliances, and a breakfast nook. Through the swinging door is a formal dining room, which the seller uses instead to house the pool table. The family room has a ceiling fan, upgraded carpeting and pad, plus a fireplace, in addition to a formal living room that presently houses a piano with enough space left for furniture.
Walk upstairs, and you can overlook much of the first floor, providing you aren’t focused on heading to the bonus room, where the workout gym and equipment can stay with the home, if you so desire, but the dumbbells go. There is also a built-in home office on the second floor, next to additional storage cabinets.
There are 2 bedrooms, including a junior master suite, on the first floor. The other 3 bedrooms, including a large master with a sitting area, are upstairs. The baths total 4: full and a half on the first floor and 2 upstairs; and the square footage, according to the Sacramento County Assessor, exceeds 3,600 square feet.
