Only once in a blue moon does the rare opportunity come along to live in one of the lush, green, coveted cul-de-sacs of the iconic University Park Tree Lane neighborhoods. This one-story Dartmouth, 3 bedroom, 2 bath detached home is loaded with special features like soaring ceilings in the living room and master bedroom, brand new carpeting and paint throughout, a dramatic fireplace in the living room, relaxing den and atrium attached to the master bedroom, and a charming nook and family room in the spacious kitchen. What truly makes this home one of a kind, however, is it has a magnificent, mature garden, visible from every room in the house. A trip to this garden is a thrilling experience, because it's easy to see that it has been tended with love, intelligence and attention to make sure every season offers its own stunning perennial colors. The newly replaced deck and upper flower bed invites you to sit back, relax and enjoy the show. This garden is also a tribute to how the master planners of Irvine built this city to be "Evergreen." Irvine has more than half a million mature trees, 300 miles of bike lanes, 60 miles of off-road biking trails AND the highest parkland acres per resident of any city in the USA!!!! University Park is also situated near a large portion of the Open Space Preserve in Irvine, not to mention the home of 4 of the best schools in California, including University High, recently named 2021 California Distinguished School. Nearby University of California at Irvine (UCI) has been one of the top 10 universities in the nation for many years, and this Almond tree Lane location is considered South Irvine, the part of Irvine that is a quick drive to Fashion Island, Newport Beach, and Crystal Cove. Recreational amenities include miles of greenbelts, pools, tennis, clubhouse and barbecue picnic areas. Close to all types of shopping, dining, transportation and medical and retail centers. Low HOA. No Mello Roos and Low tax base.
