Welcome to The Colony, Murrieta's highly sought after 55+, guard-gated, community! This 1,754 square foot, single story, open floor plan home is one of the most desirable floor plans in The Colony and also happens to be in one of the most desirable locations! This home is located on one of only 2 streets that back to the largest greenbelt The Colony has to offer. A gated courtyard leads to the front entrance of the home. This home has a bright, open floor plan with vaulted ceilings that further enhance the numerous light catching windows and openness of the home. Brand new Venetian Blinds have been installed throughout. The master suite has a large step-in shower, walk-in closet and direct access to the backyard patio. The second and third bedrooms are located in the front portion of the home and have direct access to a full bathroom with a bathtub and shower. The exterior of this home has been freshly painted. The oversized two-car garage has room for a golf cart, shop, or extra storage area. No need to bring your lawnmower because the HOA waters and maintains the entire front yard! Enjoy your evenings on the very private backyard patio while taking in the sights of the perfectly landscaped, low-maintenance yard. The Colony is a master-planned community with a clubhouse, pool, 2 spas, lit tennis courts, paddle tennis courts, gym, and even hosts many events and trips throughout the year. An 18-hole golf course is also located within the gates. This community is centrally located near medical facilities, restaurants, shopping, and is conveniently located between the 15 and 215 freeways.
