Stunning Single Family Home in Resort Style Encanto Community. Located walking distance from Santa Clara University and a short drive from Santana Row and San Jose International Airport. This is a unique corner lot with one of the biggest lot size in the community. Beautifully done Front/Back yard which are rare in this community. Bonus Room big enough for a pool table. Perfect for entertaining.

130827-dahlia-closeupLet’s have a real good look at this “Resort Style Encanto Community,” because streetview is not available. Obviously this is such an exclusive resort, self-driving Google robot overlord vehicles aren’t allowed in.

You may not realize it, but the photo above and the other one of the pool are not the building that is for sale.  As a Burbed exclusive, we’d like to show you just what exactly it is they’re selling.

And then we’ll pull back a bit and give you another thing the agent didn’t.

Context.

130827-dahlia-poolSee that house in the lower left corner of the plex, right next to both the railroad tracks and the kitchen & bathroom warehouse? Yup, that’s it. But hey! Front/Back yard which are rare in this community.

Wait until you find out what’s on the other side of those railroad tracks!

Bunus: Another unit is for sale in this community, which doesn’t have all the benefits such as the whopping 3800 square foot lot. What it does have is 26 photos for you to enjoy Resort Living.  And lots of trains.  Perfect for entertaining, provided the people you are entertaining are all three year old boys.

    Is there such a thing as TRIPLE-pane windows? I know someone who might need them.

  2. Steve Tyler Says:

    LOL. I just looked at a map, and on the other side of the tracks is San Jose International Airport.

  3. Alex Says:

    They said resort style. They didn’t say resort.

  4. magdalena Says:

    This is the most transportation friendly location yet. Perfect for anyone in the witness protection program!

  5. alex Says:

    We have friends that live next door in the Altura Townhomes, and with dual pane windows and extra insulation in the construction, there’s really no train/airport noise besides some rumble when the freight train goes by.

    Either way, the whole community in this area is DINK (Dual Income No Kids) or Empty nesters, therefore proximity to transportation and entertainment (walk to train, free 10 minute shuttle to airport, 5 min drive to downtown san jose or santana row) MORE than makes up for some noise here and there and lack of good schools. Most of the people that live there will sell their homes and move to mountain view/sunnyvale/campbell when they have kids anyways.

    …plus…you can rent these for $3000-$4000 to santa clara students and young professionals…so its pretty win.
