I would think you turn left out of that community, then do a U-turn at St Rose/Spencer, then make a left further down on St. Rose.

Getting home would obviously be a breeze.
Iím trying to remember the layout. If memory serves, I think you can only make a right out of the community onto Saint Rose, but then, yes, a u-turn at Spencer and a left at Amigo. You can also use the alternative exit onto Sunridge Heights, then a left on Seven Hills Drive, then a left onto Saint Rose, and a left onto Amigo Street.

Good luck on the purchase, and welcome to the neighborhood (assuming it all works out).

Looks like weíll be putting in an offer!
Iím the same way. I prefer being close to shopping not in some boring highly residential area. No thanks!

We are under contract! All in at slightly under $160 per square foot, plus they threw in a very generous flooring allowance. I still don’t quite understand why it is so much cheaper here than in the rest of 89052, but not complaining.

And I thought I overpaid at 95$ SF in Seven Hills/Grand Hills
Venezia guard gated, have not looked at the current market price of SF. This is the last home we are going to own.

You just have bought right after the crash. Now, updated homes in the 89052 area are going for 170-200sq ft, depending on overall condition, lot size etc. For a new build with flooring allowance, lots of included features, gated community etc. for $160 sq ft, I think is a phenomenal deal. Only thing Iím not quite sure about is the need to landscape the backyard. Donít really know the cost for that, hopefully not too much. The front comes landscaped.

You must have bought a two story home. Even if so, $160/sq ft is very good IMO.

Single story homes I'm looking at are closer to $195/sq ft and higher. Wish I didn't feel like I'm too old to deal with going up and down steps! My knees and ankles aren't very happy going down steps now, hope it doesn't get much worse as I get older.

Did you get any window treatment included in the price of the home? That can add up fast. Up to you what you spend to landscape the back yard. Don't forget irrigation if you put in plants.

Congrats on your purchase. I'm looking to buy as soon as I can sell my house in Florida. Can't wait to get back out there and start looking.

Often the HOA requires the backyard be landscaped, but you can probably put something basic that would meet HOA approval for $3,000-$5,000. Of course the sky is the limit as to making it your own.

Seems like a nice community and a good price, congrats!

Congratulations!

Once you close, treat yourself to the Costco nearby:



Or, if you prefer, this (also at the Costco):
