Some houses should not be passed up, regardless of the price. These houses shouldn’t be passed up precisely because of the price.

718 Canoas Creek Circle in the heart of Willow Glen is a stunning Mediterranean style home with four bedrooms (including a loft bedroom that any teen would love) and two and a half baths, and plenty of extra space besides, occupying 2,227 square feet. The home was refurbished with every imaginable amenity, including plenty of custom-built cabinet space and closet organizers.

The rooms are all light and airy because of the high ceilings, and there is room for a family to spread out in the living room and family room. The gourmet, eat-in kitchen includes gorgeous hardwood cabinets, black granite countertops and even a butcher block.

Stone is, in fact, a key element of this house, and rooms without wall-to-wall carpeting have beautiful granite and marble floors. The most appealing feature of this house, however, may be the master bedroom suite, which includes a spacious sitting area that can be converted into a nursery when the time is right.

There’s also a lovely patio leading out to the backyard, and a balcony overlooking the yard for some quiet, private relaxation outdoors. It’s the perfect home for a growing family, and it’s selling for just $700,000.

Another large home at a similar price can be found at 6143 Banner Drive in Blossom Valley.

At 2,509 square feet, this five bedroom, three bathroom home is even larger, and it sits on a 6,120 square foot lot, with plenty of room for the in-ground pool out back.

This home has two outstanding features: The bay windows offer a beautiful view of the nearby foothills, and the previous owner recently spent $125,000 remodeling the house, expanding the gourmet kitchen and redoing all the bathrooms.

There’s a separate dining room, as well as a breakfast bar and eat-in kitchen, as well as a living room and separate family room. The master bedroom suite is vast and the new bathroom is a lovely escape. This home, in a very desirable neighborhood, is also selling for $700,000.

Also tucked away on a quiet street in Blossom Valley is a charming four bedroom, four bathroom house at 5827 Pala Mesa Drive. At 3,058 square feet on a 5,025 square foot lot, this house is huge, and has all the amenities a new homeowner would want.

There’s a spacious formal living room with extra high ceilings and a large family room as well for a private escape. A loft space overlooking the living room can be converted into a den or home office, and the previous owner transformed the first floor bedroom into a personal study.

The dark hardwood floors are gorgeous, reflecting the light that streams into the room. The spacious, eat-in kitchen has plenty of hardwood cabinets to match the floors, and a large island for people who like to putter around the kitchen.

The sale includes all the major appliances including a range, built-in self-cleaning oven, washer and dryer, trash compactor and microwave. The complex surrounding this home includes a community park with a swimming pool and tennis courts. This home sells for $785,000.
