UPDATE: 8661 Encino Avenue was sold for $550,000. The Sellers accepted an offer before it was listed in the MLS.

It’s a hot seller’s market, and many offers are happening before a “For Sale” is even installed in the front yard! In this case, the Sellers were planning to list this property in the MLS, but an offer was submitted ahead of time, and we negotiated a sale off the market.

8661 Encino Avenue is located on a cul-de-sac in West Serra Mesa, near Mission Valley. It’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath detached home with a large entertainer’s backyard. The kitchen and baths have been fully upgraded with high-end finishes and custom tile, cabinets, and glass work. All plumbing fixtures are newer, and part of the home features the original hardwood floors.

Updates include double-paned windows, and a bonus enclosed sunroom. The attached two-car garage has laundry hook-ups, and there is an adjacent bonus shed. In addition to the long driveway, there is plenty of street parking available for guests. Refrigerator, washer, and dryer are included in the in the sale. There is also central A/C.

The backyard features sweeping views of Mission Valley. Relax under one of two pergolas, and enjoy a garden landscaped with grapevines, tropical flowering shrubs, and fruit and nut trees. There is a built-in BBQ and plenty of room for guests to relax. The front yard features no-maintenance synthetic turf.

West Serra Mesa is an established neighborhood with long-term neighbors. There are NO HOA or Mello-Roos fees.

Location, Location, Location!

8661 Encino Avenue is close to everything – Mission Valley, the beaches, the 805 and 163 freeways, and Qualcomm Stadium! It’s located in an older established neighborhood on a cul-de-sac, and at the same time it’s close to everything San Diego has to offer.
