3453 N Richland Drive
This incredibly affordable townhouse is located in the desirable Richland Heights neighborhood, northeast of Campbell and Ft Lowell. It has eco-friendly bamboo floors through out. The central air conditioner was new in 2005. Also has evaporative cooling for maximum energy savings.
The living room is spacious and has a high vaulting ceiling with clerestory windows. The corner fireplace provides a cozy touch. Sliding doors lead from the living room and master bedroom to the private walled patio. A generous dining area is between the living room and kitchen.
The two bedrooms and two baths are augmented by a den, which could easily be converted to a third bedroom by reworking the hall closet so it faces the bedroom. Check out the floor plan to see how it could be done.
The pool, spa and ramada offer a great oasis for relaxing and entertaining.
The Homeowners Association fee covers common area maintenance and insurance, garbage collection, water, personal and common area structural insurance, and building exterior and front yard maintenance.
This townhouse sold for $120,700 on July 21, 2009. What a shame the price was dragged down so low by foreclosures, the $180 per month HOA fee, and the need for maintenance in the complex. The maintenance will not be started until the HOA finishes collecting a $100 per month special assessment from each homeowner at the end of 2010.
