8623 San Leandro Front

This is one of those new builds in Little Forest Hills that really does uphold the neighborhood motto: “Keep Little Forest Hills Funky.” This enclave of 1930s and ’40s cottages east of Garland Road and west of Ferguson has been a target for teardowns, with many homes being scraped and replaced as fast as builders can manage it. So it’s refreshing to see a new build that looks just as fun and friendly as the neighbors.

Considering this hot market for homebuyers inside 635, we’re pretty sure this listing from David Griffin Realtor Janelle Alcantara will get snapped up fast!

I love the windows and light throughout this lovely two-story contemporary at 8623 San Leandro. The open spaces are fantastic in this four-bedroom, three bath home that has two living areas and tremendous vaulted ceilings. Gleaming hardwood floors and clean lines really make this home flow.

“Soaring ceilings, abundant windows and custom built-ins in great room create a wonderful place to call home,” Alcantara says. She has listed this just-completed new build at $675,000. With 3,027 square feet, that comes out to almost $223 per square foot.

You also get two living spaces, high-tech audio-visual with color-changing LED lighting — perfect for movie night. The master suite has a large bedroom area with a gorgeous bathroom complete with frameless glass shower and free-standing tub. And let’s not forget the kitchen, which has stainless steel appliances with custom cabinets, gorgeous pendant lighting, and a huge island.

Alcantara says that the backyard has plenty of room for a pool, and that the plentiful built-ins will make for uncluttered spaces.

    This home could really benefit from staging, especially with the accent colors. It would be great to pull those colors into the furniture and art!
