Men are From Seattle, Women are From Hawaii and Here's a Fair Oaks Short Sale

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

4536 Wawona Circle, Fair Oaks, CA 95628A small ocicat, at the moment, is curled up into a tight ball in my lap. She knows that making herself very small is the only way to sit on me while I am typing which, for whatever reason, she absolutely must do at this very moment. Who knows what goes through the mind of a cat? She came into the bedroom this morning at 4:00 AM and meowed at me. Twice. She rules the other cats, both of which are much bigger than she and male.

I had considered writing a post about the differences between men and women -- such as Men are from Seattle and Women are from Hawaii, but I've changed my mind and instead want to tell you about a unique ranch home in Fair Oaks that is coming on the market today as a short sale.

This 1980 home in Lake Natoma Heights has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. You can tell from the photograph that one of the rooms must have a vaulted ceiling, and that room is the family room. It's a popular L-shaped floor plan, with the master suite off to the left of the entry. The entry sports a floral design in the floor tile.

The family room is carpeted and its vaulted ceiling is wood. There is a stone fireplace with a pellet stove insert. On the short part of the L is the kitchen, with ceramic counters, an electric stove and a dishwasher. In fact, all of the utilities in this home are electric. Off the kitchen is an alcove that functions as a separate dining room, with built-in cabinets for extra storage.

Lots of buyers today want a bedroom downstairs. The master suite is located on the first floor, but one of the bedrooms upstairs is about the same size. What's nice about the master suite is it is large and has newer cork flooring, which is very soft under your feet. The master bath has newer marmoleum and a shower. The vanity with a sink is off the bath.

The second bedroom upstairs has newer Brazilian cherry floors, 2 windows, a big closet and a cut-out window that lets you overlook the family room. The third bedroom is smaller and is carpeted. The guest bath, with a shower over the tub, has a window that brightens the room. In addition, the landing on the second floor has a built-in desk and could be used as an office area. An added benefit is the owners have updated the HVAC with 15-seer and a HEPA filtration system.

Of course, it comes with a two-car attached garage, a big side yard and adequate space with an uncovered patio in the back. The front yard is "green" and the ground cover is water tolerant; the vegetation and trees are on a drip system.

4536 Wawona Circle, Fair Oaks, CA 95628 is offered exclusively by Lyon Real Estate as a short sale at $215,000. For more information, contact your Sacramento short sale agent, Elizabeth Weintraub, at 916 233 6759.

Love the Brady Bunch stairs in this Fair Oaks Short Sale.  As for the cat, they always seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong least from a human perspective.  Ours do very similar things.

Very creative catchy phrase. This is a nice home. Your so right about a bedroom down but to have the master down is a bonus. Good luck. An offer is on the way I feel it.

Love the stone fireplace.  I've only ever seen a pellet stove once, but I've heard and read they are very efficent.  My baby girl cat sleeps on my pillow... when I'm awake and home she stays on my shoes *even after I take my feet out of them.

Elizabeth - Great lead into the story.  As I type now I have a little cat named "Gerry...G for short with the kids" huddled up near the keyboard.  A gift from a Realtor almost 17 years ago when I lost a cat in the Laguna Hills fires.  So I know how these kitties can hamper productivity. ~ Doug
