This home has it all: easy access to freeways, close proximity to the Santa Ana Zoo and Discovery Science Center and is within walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants. The interior offers vaulted ceilings, newer carpet, granite counter tops and gorgeous dark hardwood floors.
Before you walk through the front door, you’ll see a patio that is perfect for barbecuing or just enjoying the fresh air with a cup of coffee.
You may choose to enter through the front door, or through the attached garage. Right by the garage door entrance, there is an exceptionally large coat closet that runs the length of the stairs. This can easily be used as a combination coat closet and storage.
Once you’re through the front door, off to your left is a lovely fireplace that is surrounded with travertine tiles that match the floor near the front entrance. While this is currently being used as a living room, the space seems very versatile. Depending on your needs, you could use this as a play room, a billiards room (my personal favorite) or even an office.
The windows at the front of the house are from floor to ceiling, and emit a substantial amount of light. However, they are already equipped with blinds, should you wish to control the amount of sunlight into the home.
Up a short flight of stairs you’ll see the beautiful dark hardwood floors that expand throughout this level. The floors have been cleaned with the best steam mop for hardwood floors so they really look the part. Directly at the top of the stairs is a powder room.
And to your left is the spacious family room that also has a perfect alcove for a TV so it remains slightly hidden (and is not an eyesore).
Next to the family room is the dining area. The amount of space here gives you the opportunity to include a large table. There are also two large windows here that let in a ton of light.
Next to this is the kitchen, which has an open plan. It also has stainless steel appliances and an abundance of storage. The window over the sink emits a generous amount of light into the space.
Up the stairs on the way to the next level, there is a small landing that could house decorative pieces or even a place for additional storage. There are additional windows that let in more of that sunlight!
On the 3rd floor there is a large office, playroom or the possibility to use this as a bedroom as it contains a large closet. A nice feature of this floor is the sliding glass doors open out onto a balcony which overlooks onto a courtyard with tons of trees and greenery.
Also conveniently located on this floor is the laundry room, large bathroom with dual sinks, granite countertops, travertine tile floors and a large tub and shower combo, and two bedrooms.
The possibilities for these two rooms are endless. If you have children, of course, they can easily be used as such. One of these two rooms has a large walk-in closet. The closet in the second room also has a reasonable amount of space.
There is another small landing up the stairs to the top floor. At the top of the stairs, there are some nice built-ins to give you some additional storage.
There is another balcony on this floor with large sliding glass doors that, when open, let the breeze flow nicely into the room.
The newer travertine tiles begin at the entrance to the bathroom, which houses a stand up shower, large tub and separate toilet. Skylights also help to significantly brighten up this room.
The large walk in closet has a couple of windows, which is an added bonus.
The large amount of windows in this house make it very bright and airy, while the large sliding glass doors and balconies overlooking the lush courtyard bring the outside in and cool down the house.
This Orange County property would be great for any family because not only is the layout of the house and the available storage phenomenal, but this house is also within walking distance to Santiago Park, and many other shops and restaurants (such as Coffee Bean and Mother’s Market). Just across the street is the Discovery Science Center which residents of Santa Ana get free admission on the first Tuesday of every month. Also nearby is the Santa Ana Zoo which offers a Resident Free Day on the third Saturday of each month, where Santa Ana residents may visit the Zoo for free.
