It's a no-brainer that San Diego is considered to be the ideal family getaway spot. The city seems to have it all; sun, tasty food, beautiful parks, and fun activities for all ages. In a 2014 study, one of its suburbs, Santee, was rated one of the ten best cities in Southern California for raising a family.
The study ranked smaller cities based on availability of superior schools, diversity, and safe neighborhoods. In south Santee is the Riverwalk Community, one of Santee's home developments that ticks all those boxes.
Your New Home?
Today, the Quance Group is proud to show you a charming home on Leavesly Trail in Riverwalk. Built in 2007, this 4-bedroom, 3 bathroom unit is spread across an impressive 1,860 sq. ft. of space. The property boasts an open floor plan with large windows, which keeps the interior flooded with bright, natural light.
The vaulted ceilings, combined with the layout of the living/dining area, makes the home feel even more expansive than it is. With the fully fitted kitchen, foodies and aspiring chefs alike, will feel right at home whipping up delicious meals. The spacious living area is perfect for families with young children, as they can be monitored with minimum fuss.
A bedroom on the first floor has an en-suite bathroom; it can be used as a home office, an extra kids' playroom or by guests that may have trouble with the stairs. The property also has a two-car garage, with loads of extra storage space available.
With a walk score of 50, the unit is within walking distance of all the restaurants and shopping available in Santee's Trolley Square. With the local YMCA and the Santee Sportsplex, only five minutes away, there are also ample opportunities for exercise and leisure.
The property is within walking distance of the Rio Seco Elementary School and the local Santana High School. With easy access to 52, 67 and 125 freeways, getting around San Diego will be a breeze.
The Riverwalk Housing development has been described as “family-friendly lifestyle meets high-level suburban living.” The architecture of homes in the area is reminiscent of the architectural style of San Francisco’s Pacific Heights, and with many family-friendly amenities close by, we tend to agree.
Call us biased, but we tend to agree with the recommendation that Santee is one of the best cities to raise a family. For more information on this lovely 4-bedroom house, contact Kimo on 619-324-5397; you can even book a viewing for this weekend.
