A few months ago I posted about a $1+ Million foreclosure that had hit the market in Aptos. That property was on Mesa Drive, and offered a nice ocean view in addition to amenities like a pool and pool house. Now, there’s another $1+ million foreclosure in Aptos. This time, the property is in Day Valley, and it too offers some amazing views. It’s located in a beautiful, quiet community of upscale luxury homes in the Forest and Meadows sub-division.
The home is massive – about 6,400 square feet and sits on nearly 2.4 acres of land. It’s only about ten years old, and boasts a three car garage, capacious master suite, granite slab counters everywhere, and marble is generously used in most of the bathrooms. It offers top of the line Miele appliances, and has a generously sized children’s play room on the southern end of the house.
While it does offer some enviable amenities, the home will not be for everyone. The home is accessed via a steep single lane driveway, with limited parking at the top by the house. The front door is accessed by walking along what feels like the “side” of the house, reached via a relatively narrow concrete walkway. The land is steeply sloped below, and it feels like there should be something else in front of the home. To make it truly magnificent, something will need to be done to give more usable space in front of the home, to improve utility and curb appeal.
