Open House Review: 91 Summerstone

Posted: 22 Apr 2014 04:00 AM PDT

Woodbridge Single Family Tropical Spot in Outer Loop
91 Summerstone $929,000

Turning off of Main, onto West Yale Loop, and taking Blue Lake South leads you to 91 Summerstone. This 4 bedroom, 2 and a half bath home delivers a smart package of updates featuring a stunning backyard with in ground rock spa and waterfall. New to the market, about 9 days, it will be interesting to see how the outer loop location with updates and features sifts out in the current market. Recently I reviewed 11 Mandarin in Woodbridge, which is currently pending at $959,000. It shows equally well and sits on a similar size lot in the inner loop with one less bedroom. Both properties seem to underscore the strength of the Woodbridge market.

Significant Numbers: Built in 1981, this two level 2,000 sq. ft. single family home sits on a 4,642 sq. ft. lot at $465 a sq. ft. HOA dues are $83 a month. There are no Mello Roos. 

Close up: From the strong curb appeal on through the house, there is a very functional appeal in the living room with marble fireplace, formal dining room and family room with built-in entertainment center and corner shelving unit.

The expanded kitchen includes roomy build-ins, corner shelving units, Corian counter tops, room for casual dining and access to the patio.

Four sliding doors bring in the outdoors with access to the backyard with two flagstone patios and a private in ground natural rock spa and waterfall. The setting is a natural for entertaining.

Recessed lights, dual pane doors and windows and a concrete roof with a life-time warranty all add value. There is ceramic tile on the lower level and pergo stairs leading to the 4 good sized bedrooms upstairs with custom closets and updated baths. The garage is oversized with as separate laundry and built-ins.

More specifics:

Two level single family home
Bedrooms, 4
Baths, 2 full
Detached, no common walls
Double garage
Two parking spaces
Association pool, spa
Central furnace, central air
Laundry in the garage
Irvine Unified School District

What should be considered? The question of the location in the outer loop nearer to Culver Street, the well developed backyard with in ground rock spa, and the many updates and special upgrades and detailing will be weighed against the price in today's market, as buyers compare this property to others in Woodbridge and other key spots in Irvine.

Who will move in? Buyers looking for the Woodbridge community appeal with top schools and key lake recreation, who are also looking for a home to entertain in, will check this one out. There's room for a family, lots of inviting props for entertaining, and room for hosting guests, all within reach of Irvine and Orange County's urban assets.
