Formal Space with open access to Great Room.. will never go unused and wasted.The Cooks View and reason Great Rooms are so popular!

Shown above on the left is the formal space.. dining.. and living.. that commonly get used twice a year... at the holidays... but not in this floorplan.  Only the half wall of the entertainment center hides a portion of the dining area.  Open wide access to view.. and move freely insure this wonderful family room.. Bright open Formal Dining Room.. and spacious Formal Living Room will always be in use.  This 3 bedroom, 3 bath single story home at 2050 sq ft of living space is the entertainers dream.  The Chef here will be the center of every party and the Center Island Granite work area the center of all activities.  Seated in front of the cozy fireplace... just waiting for your stockings... or seated at the Center Island breakfast bar... the guests and hosts... will not miss a thing!  Notice the plantings outside the formal area windows... framed by the beautiful custom draperies... plantings designed for privacy... and they work... and they create the feeling oneness with nature.

North Facing shaded view of the private garden.. can you hear the finches bathing?Bright Euro Cabinets... Granite Counters and Splashback... the Kitchen of Dreams

Have you ever hosted a party.. or gone to a party that didn't end up in the Kitchen?  This was designed to party! Notice the lack of window treatments on the North.  Shaded from Sun... heat gain... and private from neighbors.. why would you shut it up.  Always bright.. open.. airy.. and excellent cross ventilation and access to the garden and wildlife.  Bring your own bird feeder... these birds are already spoiled.  Elegant Granite Counters and Splashback insure ease of maintenance... and rich cabinetry and warm Maple flooring set the tone.  Not only newer... built in 2001... but better than new with over $30,000 in upgrades... and truly spotless!  When realtors say "turn key" or "move in ready" sometimes you wonder what they were thinking of.. or if you're in the right house.  This is the home that defines the correct use of these terms.

Private... Secluded... and Quiet!  Planted to Low Mainenance.. and just enough space for a Tomato Plant or TwoOne more Cooks View to capture the private yard!

Not a large yard... but a great yard!  Easy Maintenance... year round color... no neighbors looking in... patio... sprinklers... drainage... all planned... beautifully finished... and the bird watcher's dream come true.  This home is comfortable... cozy... yet spacious and elegant. As College Blvd. is completed and opened.. this is going to be one of the easiest accessed neighborhoods.. in Carlsbad...  yet devoid of traffic noise.  Location.. Location.. Location.. coupled with a wonderful City.. and Schools.. young family or retired.. this is a treasure.

Now this is a bird in ParadiseOne Lot East... the neighborhood Park

We've never had a buyer that said they wanted to pay more taxes.. and resale brokers have historically mishandled the issue of Mello Roos... And.. as anyone watching the current Governor's race knows.. Prop 13 was and is a great thing.  But what if a City.. Carlsbad.. wanted to create a community like Calavera Hills.. required the developer to dedicate hundreds of acres to open space.. have multiple neighborhood parks for family gatherings.. tot-lots for children to play off the street.. and preserve riding trails.. hiking trails.. a local Icon Mt. Calavera.. and a local treasure... Lake Calavera.  The  Southern California Mountain Bike Community certainly rates this highly.. and The Communities Alive in Nature Program made possible by the Calavera Nature Preserve give grade school children the opportunity to be involved in and part of the ecological process.  Programs like these.. and communities like this one come at a cost.  In the case of Calavera Hills.. a small one of an annual fee or $783.42.  What an incredible value!
