New & Open House Sunday July 30 (1-4): 3 bedroom 2.5 bath 2 car garage Lakewood home for $499,000!

Yes, you read that right – most of Lakewood is hot, hot, hot right now, with prices on 3 bedroom 2 bath homes averaging $550,000 to $600,000.

6115 Christine Lane in Lakewood, California 90713, however, presents a special opportunity to own a recently built (in 2005) 2 story beautiful single family residence with no shared walls and tons of great features (including central air conditioning, which I will enjoy greatly when I’m doing the open house today!)

As you can see in the photos, the home has an open concept floor plan, engineered wood floors all the way through downstairs and carpets upstairs. The downstairs has a gorgeous open kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, white cabinets, glass tile backsplash and recessed lighting. The living room has a gas fireplace, more recessed lighting, plantation shutters on a windows and 2 sliders that go out to the front patio and the side yard which has an area for barbecue. There is also a guest bathroom downstairs. Upstairs you have 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, 9 foot high ceilings, crown molding, a spacious master suite with a walk-in closet and a large ensuite master bathroom with soaker tub and separate shower and dual vanities. The 2 other bedrooms are also large, with a bathroom between them with direct access from each bedroom (Jack-and-Jill bathroom, they call it – perfect for sharing). The laundry is also upstairs for easy access to where all the clothes are.

As for parking, there is a large attached 2 car garage plus an uncovered guest parking space for a 3rd car, which is designated for this home.

This property is in a small well appointed community with a tiny HOA fee of $139/month, which covers the maintenance of the common area walkways and landscaping.

Yes, true, the lot size on this property is small, there is not a big yard, just a patio. Some like to call this style of home a Patio Home. But it is fully detached with no shared walls. And no yard means no expensive and time consuming yard maintenance for you.

And have I already mentioned this home is fully air conditioned?? Mmmm. Central heat and air.

So instead of getting that 1950s home where you will have to put in your own AC, knock this wall down and that one, rip out the kitchen and add a new bathroom, rewire it to install recessed lighting, and put on a new roof, have you considered just getting this beauty for $499,000?? (Sidebar: makes for a great investment property too: 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 1522 SF with AC and 3 parking spaces is going to rent for $2500 in this area on the conservative side.)

If so, run, don’t walk, to my OPEN HOUSE TODAY FROM 1 PM TO 4 PM. 6115 Christine Lane, Lakewood, CA 90713 is located between Bellflower and Woodruff off of Allington. It’s actually on Allington then you take a little walkway back to 6115 Christine Lane.

See you very soon!
