Charming mid-century-style townhome with inviting brick entry in the popular Monticello Townhomes community of Costa Mesa. This two-story home is the largest 3-bedroom floor plan in the complex and features a sprawling living area with engineered wood floors and elegant chair rail as well as crown molding. The living room flows seamlessly into the dining area and opens to the rustic kitchen. The unique brick accent wall gives a traditional old-world feel and feels like a Big Bear escape - or you can redesign to your liking - the options are endless! There is recessed lighting in the kitchen and the refrigerator is included. French doors open to the private patio, which leads directly to your 2-car garage with plenty of storage space. The sunlit patio has a shade cover and ceiling fan to create a cozy, welcoming extension of the living space - perfect for drinking your morning cup of coffee or unwinding with a glass of wine. A bathroom with shower completes the main level. Upstairs there are three light and bright bedrooms. The primary bedroom has a walk-in closet and PRIVATE EN SUITE bathroom, which is rare to find in this neighborhood. The two remaining bedrooms have wood floors, detailed moldings, and plantation shutters. This home offers a cool perk - central air conditioning for the hot summer days that are ahead. Freshly painted almost entirely throughout with modern white tones and several updated dual pane windows. There is the potential to create a fenced in front area as well with HOA approval. Feel like you are living on a quaint city street with views of the community and easy access to the amazing amenities - 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, and a clubhouse that residents can rent out. The HOA is one of the lowest in the area for all that it provides and the dues include water & trash too! The community was recently freshly painted, which has enhanced the curb appeal tremendously. Don't miss the laundry hookups that are located in the closet on the patio. No land lease. No Mello Roos. These units make excellent investments as well with Vanguard University and Orange Coast College nearby. One parking permit included for any permit parking space on first come first serve basis, plus this unit is conveniently located near guest parking. Ok for FHA and VA buyers. Close to freeways, beaches, shops, restaurants, nightlife, schools, airport and more - the location is a 10! At this price, this one will sell quick so get your offer in ASAP!
