It is arguably Manteca’s best kept secret – a short segment of Joaquin Street tucked away in the neighborhood between Center Street, Yosemite Avenue, the Tidewater Bikeway, and Walnut Avenue.

It’s a place of older homes with character. It’s a neighborhood where people will stop and say “hi” on walks.

There is no traffic problem as the one block segment dead-ends into the back yard of a home.

It is within walking distance of downtown, the library, the Tidewater Bikeway, schools, parks including Library Park where a farmers market is conducted in season, the museum, and numerous other amenities including sopping and the skate park.

Linda Aksland of Aksland Real Estate’s listing is as unique as the neighborhood.

It is a 1,552 square foot home first built in 1946 that was added onto as the years went by. It is listed for $110,000 or $70.88 per square foot.

It is at 620 Joaquin Street where the pavement ends. It allows for a cozy yet spacious front yard thanks to mature landscaping surrounding it. There is a car port plus extensive landscaping in the front.

The uniqueness is in the lay-out. There is an extremely large great room with a fireplace that divides the house in two. There is a master bedroom with a master bathroom plus a large walk-in closet and a second room ideal for an office or possibly another bedroom on one side of the home.

On the other there is a separate bedroom with its own bathroom plus a room set up with built-in features for use as an office.

It could be used by two individuals who want to go in on a home but want separate quarters when it comes to their own bedroom, bathroom, and “secondary room” that could be used as a den, small TV or rec room, or hobby room.

The kitchen – designed galley style – opens to a slider that goes to a covered patio and backyard with fruit trees and nature landscaping. The back yard has privacy as well as alley access.

There is a separate inside laundry room off the kitchen.

Two people splitting the mortgage would have housing costs with an FHA loan of about $350 a month before tax advantages. It is definitely less than anything in town rents for plus it could be turned into rental property when the buyers get ready to move on.
