Curb appeal a perk in Serrano home
By: Eric Laughlin Gold Country News Service
Four-car garage and wide driveway a major highlight
Serrano is filled with nice family homes, but not all of them have the great curb appeal of 4131 Arenzano Way. This spacious five-bedroom, three-bath home comes with all the bells and whistles, but perhaps its biggest draws includes an impressive front exterior and a huge four-car garage with a wide driveway. “That’s extremely rare for Serrano to have so much garage space and such a huge driveway,” said listing agent Cheri Elliott. “And the garage even has apoxy-speckled flooring.” But if home’s JTS-style front exterior or its massive garage space doesn’t woo you, its interior surely will. The entrance is incredibly spacious, with high ceilings and plenty of large windows. The entry way actually opens into a jaw-dropping stairway that leads to the upstairs bedrooms and bonus room. The bonus room is even pre-wired for surround sound. If it’s not used as a fifth bedroom, the space would make a perfect office, with nice views toward the valley. Another great thing about the home is it’s perfect for both relaxing and entertaining. A full bedroom and bathroom downstairs make it ideal for hosting guests or in-laws. The first floor also features a large dining room and a state-of-the-art kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances and upgraded plumbing and lighting fixtures. The light cherry-colored cabinets are definitely easy on the eyes. From the kitchen/family room area, you’ll have access to a good-sized back yard, perfect for the family dog to roam and to barbecue in the summer. The property actually sits on about a quarter-acre. The upstairs living area is very roomy, with a large master with views of the hills. The master bathroom is complete with a walk-in closet and two separate sink stations. “Another nice thing about this home is that it’s all ready to move in,” Elliott added. Additionally, its location is superb. It sits on one of the community’s quieter neighborhoods, with a grassy park within short walking distance.
