On occasion I will stumble upon a home or two in a tract neighborhood that just seems out of place. Most tracts built in the 50’s and 60’s tended to use one or a couple of floor plans with different front elevations to give the homes more character and make the tract seem, well… less like a tract. The floor plans would be flipped on some occasions but generally you could tell from the outside what type of floor plan the home was.
In any particular subdivision there may have been an irregular shapped lot which required modification to the floorplans or a whole different floor plan altogether.
Such is the case with my new listing at 3452 Emmett Place in Santa Clara. The home is one of two homes built in this style. It features a large living room overlooking the back yard as well as a spacious master with standard sliding glass door to the back yard. The home also features a 550 Sqft. garage which was probably more desireable back then as wood working was a popular pasttime or having a workshop in the garage was considered a necessity. My clients choose to build into their garage extending the dining area and adding another 100 sqft. of living space to the home.
Overall is a wonderful alternative to many of the Killarney Farms floorplans and this particular home is in impeccable condition.
