~WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS 4 BEDROOM 2136 SQ. FT. HOME THAT FEELS LIKE LIVING IN 10,000 SQ. FT. WHAT MAKES THIS SPECIAL?
Peace. Layout. Flow. Neighborhood.
Statistics show that many home owners are dual income homes. With both owners working there are many things a home needs to accomplish for them. First, is a sense of PEACE. With chaotic days of cell phone calls, texts, meetings, appointments, timelines, many people want to have their home be their sanctuary. When you come home to 182 Oak Creek, you have a sense of calm and peace. The chaos is left behind you. It starts with the wide streets and blocked off neighborhood. You don’t have cars zooming by to get to another part of town. People driving in the neighborhood are generally going to a house in the neighborhood. There are wide streets, tall trees, and plenty of parking if needed. The house is set back with a long driveway and a plush side and front yard. Being set back from the street gives you a sense of removal and retreat while completely being a part of a neighborhood. The 2 car garage has plenty of space to keep all your bikes, tools, and toys organized so that upon pulling in you are not overwhelmed. Stepping into the home from the garage is easy and smooth as you can set your bags down in the laundry room. You walk down the hall and the open home welcomes you with warm sunshine beaming through the wall of windows onto the textured wood floors. You can sit in the family room, breakfast nook, or on the deck and enjoy a cool glass of wine or ice tea to unwind from your day. The backyard is full of flowers, shade trees, and cool lawn. If you have a dog you can throw the ball over and over while sitting on the lawn chair or hammock. Your ultimate relaxation is in the built in hot tub in the deck. Relax day or night and be steps from the back door so you can slip in to some dry clothes easily after your soak. The stars from the hot tub at night are breathtaking.
The LAYOUT of the upstairs has all four bedrooms which moms can find comforting. Many parents do not want their small children down stairs far away from them. This layout keeps the master bedroom private while close by to check on the kids at any time. In addition, it is common for people work from home or telecommute. One of the upstairs rooms could be used for your office. There is also a shed in the backyard that can be converted to a comfortable “she shed”, “man cave”, or office. The downstairs has a big open floor plan while providing some separation of space. The kids can be playing in the family room while the dad and his friends are watching the game in the living room. The kitchen faces the backyard so you can be watchful of your guests at a BBQ party or the kiddos running around in the sand pit or lawn.
FLOW is talked about often in Feng Shui. This home has a flow that keeps the you engaged when you need to or removed if you need more privacy. You can have a house full of people and still find a place for peace and quiet if needed. The home is located tucked away in a neighborhood that keeps you close to town and amenities such as salons, restaurants, schools and parks. You are literally seconds away from grocery shopping and schools yet it is not in your face. The neighborhood is highly desirable for many reasons and this is one. Many of the neighbors have been well established for over 20 years. If you need to commute to Santa Cruz or the Silicon Valley the back way through the neighborhood takes you right to 17 with out all the hassle of going through town.
