Spacious home in family friendly neighborhood
Brad Young of PMZ Real Estate in the kitchen of his listing at 2244 Fountain Square Avenue.

Want a newer home with space but don’t want the repetitious cookie cutter look of most subdivisions built since the 1960s?

Look for a resale in the Florsheim Homes-built neighborhood dubbed Rose Garden in South Manteca. The builder took great care to create a people friendly neighborhood with extensive use of wrap around porches, breezeways, and 70 plus distinct elevation variations complete with different architectural treatments to give a sense of individuality married with community.

One of those homes is now available.

Brad Young of PMZ Real Estate has listed a 3,913-square-foot home with five bedrooms and three full bathrooms at 2244 Fountain Square Avenue for $499,000.

He is showcasing it during an open house today (Saturday, June 21) from noon to 3 p.m.

It is located on a street that gets little traffic due to the layout of access streets.

The home features a custom front yard walkway that uses flagstone. There is a front porch suitable for a patio table and chairs to enjoy the evening Delta breezes.

There is an open island with granite counters and wood floors. Unlike other larger homes that make the kitchen flow seamless into the family room as if it is just one big space, the home has a large kitchen  pass through space with a wide breakfast counter that comfortably seats at least four if not five. It gives a sense of separation for the family room that features a fireplace.

There is also a formal dining room, large living room and a den. The first floor also includes a bedroom and a full bathroom. The home also features a butler’s pantry that is about six feet in length.

The stairs to the second floor split at a landing so they can be accessed from the kitchen area or the front room.

There is a large loft upstairs as well as four additional bedrooms. The master suite has a large 20 by 20 foot main room with a private study to one side and a master bathroom suite with his and her sinks and vanities, two closets and separate shower and bath tub.

There is a Pebble Tech swimming pool with sweep in the backyard that abuts single story homes that are setback a ways from the fence line.

The home features a three-car garage and room to add RV parking.

The home is within walking distance of Woodward School and Woodward Community Park.

Freeway access as well as shopping is less than a mile away.
