Many of the newer, large homes in the Redlands enjoy a desert environment and have great views of Colorado National Monument, with little relief from the hot July sunshine. This week’s unique property on S. San Miguel is an unusual Redlands home because it’s 10 years old, but it’s tucked away on a quiet, cul-de-sac, surrounded by large trees and an environment that’s almost forest-like.
The house itself offers a huge value to potential buyers, with five bedrooms, two full and two half-baths, an office, two laundry areas, two living areas and an over-sized three-car garage sitting on a lot that’s more than half an acre. Given today’s construction costs, the house could not be built for its current asking price of $515,000.
The house was custom-built for the current owners, and has many custom and upgraded features, like the interior brick-arched doorways and windows, the red oak flooring in the formal living and dining area, the surround sound system in the family room and back patio, the fire suppression system, and the hand-textured and faux-painted walls.
It was also built for an active family, so there are great practical features, like laundry rooms both upstairs and downstairs, two water heaters, two furnaces and two central air-conditioning units. The home also has a formal living and dining area that’s not actually so formal it will never get used, plus a large family room on the main floor off the kitchen, as well as a smaller computer/TV room upstairs.
The kitchen has an island with bar seating, an informal dining area, and a desk area for paying bills and recharging phones, computers and other electronics. The kitchen also has a pantry, lots of storage and plenty of work spaces for an entire crew of cooks.
Upstairs, there are five large bedrooms. The master suite has access to an upper patio that wraps all around the house, and also has a large five-piece bath, with a big soaker tub and sinks on two separate walls.
The other upstairs full bath is also over-sized, with double sinks so siblings won’t get into fights while trying to get ready for school. The configuration of rooms upstairs could make sharing a home with in-laws easy, as one of the bedrooms is accessed through the upstairs living area, and has access to a half-bath and laundry with a stackable washer and dryer, which makes it a convenient guest suite or home base for an extended family member.
While the upper patio is open to the sunshine, the outdoor spaces on the ground are all covered, with ceiling fans to keep them comfortable even in July. The patio is large enough for several tables and a barbecue.
The three-car garage is oversized, with one double-car door, and one extra-tall door in a long bay that could accommodate small RVs. There’s plenty of storage in the garage, along with room for a work bench, motorcycles, ATVs or bicycles.
The outside of the property is as unique and upgraded as the inside. The property borders a ravine, where the Bebee Trail takes children straight to Scenic Elementary school. The half-acre lot is completely landscaped, with grass, shrubs and trees. A fire pit area is on the east side of the backyard, which is big enough for volleyball or soccer, and there’s also a fenced garden area, a storage shed and RV parking on the west side of the home. The property has one share of Redlands Irrigation Water to keep it all green.
Linda Spinner with Doyle and Associates is listing this Redlands home for $515,000.
