This stunning, fully remodeled single-level home not only boasts a beautiful open concept layout in the main living spaces, but its adjacent outdoor spaces, a front deck, covered outdoor dining space and pool deck let it live even larger than its square footage indicates. Stainless steel appliances in the brand new kitchen, updated bathrooms, and with four bedrooms, one can easily convert to a home office, play room, etc. Outdoors, a grassy lawn and renovated pool, this is a beauty inside and out! Don’t let anyone dismiss this hidden pocket of San Diego as “too far east.” Here, homeowners enjoy a suburb-like experience—larger homes and lots with generous yards and pools—while still being within striking distance of downtown and the beaches. The trade-offs for living in this eastern community, easily accessed by the I-52 or I-8, are numerous. The beautiful scenery, access to destinations like Lake Murray and Cowles Mountain, which offers the undisputed best view in the city at its summit, the highly-rated schools, the incredibly low crime rate. This Neighborhood is gaining popularity and shifting generationally, drawing interest from young and growing families, re-locators, nature lovers and more. This gem won’t be “hidden” for long. Not only is this one of the area’s larger lots, but it’s tucked at the end of a cul-de-sac that edges elementary school property, an enviably sweet spot. And while San Carlos and Lake Murray neighborhood highly ranked area schools are one of the chief attractions of living here, the other is its natural charms. Mere blocks away lies Lake Murray and its surrounding park, and the popular trailhead to Cowles Mountain—considered the area’s “crown jewel” and strikingly visible from this home is just over a mile away. There are excellent golf courses and plenty of places to hike, run, bike, rock climb and more (this is one active community!). Head to Grossmont Center, just a 7 min drive away, for shopping restaurants and more. And of course, this neighborhood's centralized location is great for commuters with downtown about 30 minutes away, traffic depending, and you can hit the beach in 20.
