Purchased for $890,000 six months ago having been listed as a fixer for $895,000 with four bedrooms and 2,332 square feet, the Miraloma Park home at 535 Teresita Boulevard has returned to the market as a renovated five-bedroom home with 3,184 square feet.
A few pros, cons, and “eye catchers” for the property by way of a plugged-in Miraloma Park homeowner who has taken a tour and is keeping a close eye on the listing:
Pros: Newly renovated; 5 bedrooms, some en-suite; large family room; good for entertaining with easy access to level back yard; attractive landscaping; close to transportation – freeways and public transit; decent Bay and downtown views.
Cons: Relatively small kitchen, bedrooms, living room and dining room for a five-bedroom home; limited storage in the kitchen and one-car garage; questionable remodeling choices (vinyl windows, front steps, cable deck railing on a Tudor House); busy street.
Eye Catchers (flashy, but only an asset if they are what you are looking for): Pot filler over the stove; wet bar and “wine cellar.”
The most expensive Miraloma Park home sale to date is 321 Marietta Drive which sold for $1,488,000 in early 2009 with five bedrooms and 4,170 square feet. The asking price for the remodeled 535 Teresita Boulevard is $1,699,000.
And of course, as 535 Teresita looked before the remodel:
