Michael Gaddis of Michael Gaddis, J.D. Realty Group is proud to present 722 Banyan Ct. in the Olive Hills Estates community of San Marcos. Olive Hills Estates is a small, upscale collection of homes characterized by beautifully maintained homes on large lots with ample distance between each home. Some builders try and fit as many houses as possible within a development based on the simple premise, more houses equals more money. The developer of Olive Hills Estates, Standard Pacific Homes, did not take that approach. Instead, Standard Pacific Homes created a charming community of homes spaced far enough apart as to not illicit claustrophobic feelings. Driving through Olive Hills Estates is like driving through a modern day Norman Rockwell painting with scenes of families walking their dogs, children playing, homeowners washing their car in the driveways, etc. Olive Hills Estates is the quintessential housing development.
Within Olive Hills Estates 722 Banyan Court shines brightly. This magnificent 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3329 square foot home has incredible curb appeal and a spacious interior. Built in 2003, this home sits on a little over 1/3 of an acre and boasts an impressive front yard as well as a pool sized back yard. Many real estate agents use the term “Pool-Sized Backyard” loosely but in this case the backyard is definitely ”Pool-Sized”. There is definitely enough room for a large pool, which would still leave a large lawn area. However, the backyard is perfect as it is. In fact, it is more like a park with its large grassy area, subtle landscaping and views of the neighboring hills and mountains. It is the perfect setting for a family barbecue or for playing outdoor games such as croquet, badminton, soccer, bocce, etc. As far as parking is concerned, 722 Banyon Ct. has a 3-car garage and room to park up to 4 cars on the driveway. So families with teenagers of driving age or extended families do not need to worry about finding places to park.
As you enter the front door you enter into a dramatic 2-story foyer with a staircase leading to the 2nd floor. For those homebuyers looking for the perfect guest room or a room for an elderly parent, you are in luck! This home also has a bedroom downstairs with its own en suite full bath. Downstairs bedrooms are one of the most desired amenities that home buyers look for in a home, especially downstairs bedrooms with their own dedicated bathroom.
The heart of the home is the large 20×15 foot chef’s kitchen custom painted in “Cranberry Zing”. The kitchen features an oversized center island, Baltic Brown granite countertops and backsplash, distressed hardwood floors, maple cabinets and stainless steel appliances (including an upgraded Bosch dishwasher). Directly off of the kitchen is a bonus room with French doors to the backyard. The room is currently being used as a homework room but could be used as an office or playroom for the kids. The kitchen opens up to the spacious family room which is light and bright with numerous windows providing views of the private backyard and mountains. The family room has a built in Maple cabinet entertainment center and is painted with the custom paint color “Pumpkin Butter”. A half-bath with a beautiful custom vanity with marble top, matching mirror and Delta faucet is located near the Family room. Finishing off the downstairs is a 22 foot long dining room/formal living room area custom painted in “Vintage Merlot”. This room can be used a myriad of ways and, for larger families, can accommodate a very large dining room table. A large loft area is upstairs with a walk-in closet and custom built in cabinets with an integrated desk/work station area. The loft could be converted into a 5 bedroom. The highlight of the upstairs is a large spacious master bedroom with tray ceilings. Numerous windows provide lots of natural light and impressive views. The en suite master bath has a large soaking tub, a custom frameless shower with premium heavy frosted glass, a large walk-in closet with dual mirrored doors, upgraded lighting and ceramic tile. Also upstairs are the 2 and 3rd
Two additional great features of this home include a dual zone HVAC system with upgraded high capacity Trane air conditioning units and a pre-wired security system with a wireless backup.
This home is a perfect home in a perfect community surrounded by beautiful walking and bike trails. With easy access to the highway 78 and the 15 Freeway ingress and egress to and from work should be hassle free. Twin Oaks Valley Golf Course and the California State University-San Marcos campus are short drives are the numerous shops and restaurants located off of San Marcos Blvd.
