SAN LUIS OBISPO – The Custom Collection at Bowden Ranch, by luxury homebuilder Mangano Homes, features some of the finest homes being built in San Luis Obispo. And, Bowden Ranch is conveniently located close to downtown with a microclimate considered one of the best in the city.

This is according to Chris Richardson, who is the listing broker and knows his market well.

“I consider these homes ‘ultra luxury’ because of Mangano Homes’ attention to every detail, quality of finish and amenities,” said Richardson, of Richardson Properties. “Every amenity you could want is in these houses.”

In addition to the craftsmanship, the homes at The Custom Collection at Bowden Ranch are nestled amidst a peaceful, protected open space that offers hiking trails and a year-round babbling brook, a buffer between homes and views of the rolling hills and the city of San Luis Obispo.

Richardson recently sold the Tuscan model, the largest home in the Collection, prior to final completion to an excited family from the San Luis Obispo area.

The Mission home at Bowden Ranch is nearly finished and is already in escrow.  With an asking price of $1.990 million, the home offers five bedrooms, 4.5 baths and an impressive list of amenities.

The Craftsman home at The Custom Collection at Bowden Ranch will be completed within 60 days, with a sales price of $1.975 million. It features four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in 3,888 square feet. This two-story home features a cobblestone courtyard and spacious patio to enjoy the quiet setting, a game room, luxurious master suite and a large kitchen in the heart of the home, adjacent to an expansive family room.

Custom features of these homes include gourmet Viking appliance kitchens, granite and Caesar countertops, combination dark wood and natural stone floors, and features such as Kitchen Craft cabinets, Kohler fixtures and Viking oversized refrigerator, ultra-quiet dishwasher, convection microwave and warming drawer. The homes also feature a wine refrigerator, a combination refrigerator-freezer in the wet bar and a mini-kitchenette for the game room.

The homes also feature a fireplace and a Viking barbecue in the spacious patio, laundry rooms upstairs and downstairs, and all patios, walkways, sidewalks and driveways are stone pavers, rather than concrete.

The homes are wired for tomorrow, with a structured wired cable can system, high-speed category 5 terminated in all phone and television outlets and HD, DVR and DSS coaxial terminated in all television locations. The homes are also energy-efficient and offer an on-demand hot water system, insulated dual pane 400-Series Anderson windows and sliding glass doors.

“The list of amenities is amazing, and I’m pleased to be able to offer such an incredible product,” Richardson added.

The homes are located on Wilding and Woodland, east of Johnson, in San Luis Obispo. For information on The Custom Collection at Bowden Ranch, contact Christ Richardson, 805-781-6040 or chris@richardsonproperties.com.
