(Google it) and 10 minutes from Saddleback Church(Google it), Irvine Lake and Orange County Zoo.
The house has been extensively remodeled/expanded with designer touches/appliances. A large master suite upstairs was added only 2 years ago (with permits). 2 more bedrooms downstairs, a bathroom, kitchen and living room. The kitchen has unique “Retro” designer appliances that stay with the house and quartz counters.. There is central A/C and heat but also a wood-burning stove with fan in the living room. The attic has new insulation. The contractor owner has worked hard on this house for many years and it shows.
The lot is 7800 Sq Ft, securely fenced with lots of parking. Large yard at the front and 2 great patios at the back. Large one car garage with lots of storage plus a car port and an extra “finished” room at the rear set up as an extra guest bedroom.
All houses in Modjeska are unique. This is not “pink-box” country. Breathe the air, walk the streets, feel the relaxation wash over you. Not many houses come on the market in Modjeska so don’t miss this one.
I am British and have lived in Orange County for 30 years. I was CEO of a famous British Franchising company which took me to many countries, and I came to the USA to run an operation here. I entered the Real Estate profession at the same time as my wife and I founded an animal rescue, Modjeska Ranch Rescue, which has since rehomed over 8000 homeless cats, dogs and horses. I bring to my clients a professional, and read more if necessary, an analytical approach to what can be a very confusing process for buyers and sellers. Having said that I also bring a sense of value, a sense of honor, and sometimes a British sense of humor! Although I do the majority of my work in Orange County with residential buyers, I have also identified properties for clients in LA, Glendale, Pasadena, Temecula, and Riverside, as well as worked with investors from overseas wanting to find properties that will provide good cash-flow and capital growth. I am married to an American, and have 3 daughters. I live in Modjeska Canyon, where the animal rescue is based. I realize a real estate transaction can be life changing for my client. My job is to make sure that change is a good one!
