If you'd like to live just down the street from Russell Ranch Elementary School, then this Folsom short sale home in Empire Ranch is probably perfect for you. You can see the school from the front yard, but the home is not located directly in front of it; in fact, it's at the end of the street on the corner. The view from the front yard looking the opposite direction is a row of homes with a large hill behind it. I imagine kids would love to climb that hill.
This home was built by Elliott Homes in 2005. It's a single story and one of the more popular Empire Ranch models at 1,344 square feet. It has 3 bedrooms, two of which have bamboo planked floors. The master suite has bamboo laminate, a curved wall of windows and is vaulted with a ceiling fan. This room overlooks the back yard.
The kitchen and family room make up a great room concept. In fact, you can see the formal dining room with its plantation shutters over the windows, which is off the kitchen and entry, from the family room. Both the dining room and kitchen have ceramic floors, as does the entry. You've got stainless and black appliances in the kitchen and ceramic counters.
There is a court yard in the front and covered patio in the back, and these areas are professionally landscaped or at least look like a professional tended to them. I spotted a weeping cherry tree and rose bushes in back, too. The indoor laundry room leads to a 2-car garage. In the garage is a special receptacle for plugging in a freezer.
