Upgrades include new energy efficient dual zone HVAC, hot water heater, garage door opener, energy efficient windows, oversize garage with extra room for a shop or bonus room, solar energy and much more! See supplement for more!, Vista is known for its rolling hills, mild climate with an average annual temperature in the low 70s, and great proximity to the Pacific Ocean and local beaches, this property benefits from all of that and more. If you are not familiar with the area, the climate is a favorite of local residents. It is just far enough away from the ocean to avoid much of the âMay gray and June gloomâ so common in coastal areas, yet not so far inland that residents worry about excessive heat in the high summer months. Most summer days the high tops out around 80 degrees. The climate and soil are also ideal for agriculture, home owners often grow Avocados, Citrus, Apples, Loquats and a variety of other fruits and vegetables. It truly is a climactic wonderland with one of the best year round climates around. 1409 Monte Vista sits on the Eastern edge of Vista just outside city limits. The home is located high above the street so it is peaceful and quiet yet it is just minutes from the city with great access to all it offers. Although the street address is still Vista, since it resides outside of city limits the property tax base is lower than some other homes nearby, in addition there are no HOA or Mell-Roos dues which also keeps monthly costs lower than some comparable homes. The location is super convenient, just a short jog off of South Santa Fe road, which is a main road that runs East and West through central Vista. Just down the road you will find the area known as Paseo Santa Fe with numerous new breweries, local pubs, eateries and services. The home is also close to several options for education including Vista Innovation & Design Academy (VIDA) and Mission Vista Charter High School, currently ranked 10/10 by Great Schools. As pull into the driveway and head up the short hill to the home you will notice that any noise from Monte Vista Road fades away since the home is elevated. As such the home benefits from nice breezes and nice views from the main living areas and front yard. The home has an excellent layout with the bedrooms at the back of the home and the main living areas in the front. The kitchen is spacious and open with plenty of counter and cabinet space and direct access to the oversized garage. The garage measures approximately 42' long and 21' wide (~861 square feet) so it has plenty of room for two or more vehicles plus a workshop, extra living space (man or woman cave), storage, or whatever you would like. The living area is approximately 1,645 square feet and the owners have made several recent upgrades. These include a brand new high efficienty heating and air conditioning system with a whole house fan. It is a dual zone high efficiency system that was installed from scratch with brand new ducting and all. The owners also had a retaining wall built in the front yard and extended the usable space by several feet, which adds to the enjoyment and options from the front yard. A brand new photo voltaic solar electric system was installed which brought the electric bill from roughly $400 or more per month down to less than $0. The owners currently have a credit of a few hundred dollars. The buyer can assume the loan for the solar system at only $180 per month and it is easy to see how much financial sense it makes to do so(or the seller is willing to pay it off completely with the right offer). The home also has dual pane energy efficient windows, engineered plank wood floors, a wood burning fireplace/stove, Swarovski crystal light fixtures, new hot water heater, a new garage door opener, a whole house fan to use when you don't need AC, several fruit trees, and more. Single story homes on large lots with room for toys and extra vehicles go quickly in this market and we expect this one will be no different. Interested parties are urged to take action quickly before this one is gone.
