Here is Your Chance to Buy a Dunmore Short Sale Home in Wildhawk Near Elk Grove's Arnold Adreani

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

9992 Phoenician Way, Sacramento, CA 95829The story on the front page of the Sacramento Bee this morning is about the whale-watching business in Monterey. At this time of year, the blue whales are ubiquitious along the California coastline as they migrate to feed on krill. It's sort of strange to think of the largest creature on earth feasting on a tiny shrimp.

Blue whales don't have any teeth. Don't ask me why I know that. Something must have stuck in my thick head in elementary school. I believe blue whales are also on the endangered list of animals we have thoughtlessly slaughtered over the years.

It would be nice to drive a couple of hours to the coast today to look for whales, but first I have to tell you about this gorgeous, and I mean drop-dead beautiful, home in the Wildhawk subdivision. It's in the Elk Grove School district, but the address is Sacramento, and the popular Arnold Adreani Elementary is nearby. So is the Wildhawk Golf Club.

The first thing that you will notice about this home is the way the garages are divided. It has two driveways. A one-car garage is located on the left side and a two-car garage is to the right of this home. Sort of like his-and-her garages. Then there's this huge tree in the front yard that blocks your view of this magnificent structure.

As you walk up the sidewalk, though, you are greeted by a lovely and enchanting entrance. It's professionally landscaped with in-ground lighting, just like the back yard. Once inside, look up, and you'll see soaring ceilings and a balcony overhead. Straight ahead is the formal living room that is part of the great room concept. The wall to the right of the living room has cut-outs that let you see into the family room.

The seller says the carpeting is high-end and cost more than $20,000. It's thick, light brown and very pretty. The entire home is very pretty. It makes you feel warm and comfortable, like you could move right in, and you can, just as soon as this short sale is approved and your loan closes. It was built in 2003 by Dunmore Homes and is a four-bedroom, 3-bath, about 2,539 square feet.

Apart from a formal dining room, there is space in the gigantic kitchen for a table, and you can also put chairs in front of the breakfast bar. It's a perfect environment for entertaining and can easily accommodate two or more gourmet chefs. There is an island, 5-burner gas cook-top, built-in microwave and electric oven, plus the refrigerator stays. There is a freezer in the garage that stays, too.

You'll also find that highly coveted first-floor bedroom in this home. Plus, a full guest bath and a laundry room that comes equipped with a washer and dryer, cabinets and a hanging bar for clothes.

Upstairs are three more bedrooms, which include the master suite, a guest bath, and a humongous master bath. The master has ceramic floors, dual vanities, each with its own sink and framed mirror, plus a big soaking tub and a separate shower. This room has 4 windows and a walk-in closet.

The back yard is breathtaking. You might want to check out my virtual tour to see it. It is professionally landscaped, with entertaining areas separated by small stone walls, plus a water feature and a fire pit. There is a birch tree, Japanese maple and a cedar tree, including an assortment of drought-tolerant plants that I can't name.

Beautiful write up on a great listing!  Now head to the coast and look for those whales!  I saw my first whale when I was at the coast for Rain brought a tear to my eye as it was one of those things on my bucket list!

That's a great outdoor space on this Elk Grove home.  I hope you really are going whale watching today.  That does sound like fun.

Thanks for the support and well wishes, everybody. This was one of my more fun listings to take. I have a couple more coming up next week. In the meanwhile, I did make a reservation at the Bodega Bay Lodge for next month. Just for 2 days. I'll be training a new agent to help with my business, so I can't stay away for very long. There's just too much short sale business in Sacramento to let me get away for very long.
