Sponsored: Remodeled home delivers top schools and community cabana in Almaden’s popular Montevideo neighborhood

Who says you can’t have it all, including a centralized location in the heart of the beautiful Almaden Valley?
The remodeled home’s yards are professionally landscaped with an inviting front slate walkway and porch. 
Spacious rooms, beautiful upgraded finishes and an expansive backyard are waiting at 5984 Via Madero Drive in San Jose. Located in the desirable Montevideo neighborhood, the home is close to top-rated schools including within walking distance to Guadalupe Elementary School, less than a mile to Dartmouth Middle School and less than 2 miles to Branham High School. It is also walking distance to the Montevideo community pool, where young residents can be a part of the swim team and the family can enjoy a cabana, clubhouse, and recreation grounds.
The professionally landscaped front gardens, slate tile walkway and porch create an inviting entry into this more than 2,500-square-foot home. Behind the front entry with a decorative leaded glass insert are light-filled rooms, hardwood floors, updated electrical wiring and copper plumbing, dual-pane windows, light dimmers, and solar panels.
There are five bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, a formal living room with bay window, decorative wall sconces, and fireplace, and dining room, new kitchen with casual dining area and adjoining family room, playroom/office with private entry, and spacious bedrooms.
A lush private backyard and patio is the perfect setting for dining, drinks or playing games. 
A level backyard offers lots of room to stretch out, entertain, play and relax in its quiet and peaceful setting. A covered patio illuminated with dusk-to-dawn lighting and an open view of the backyard is an attractive outdoor dining or gathering space. Raised garden beds filled with lush foliage wrap around new sod and several fruit trees including orange, lemon, and pomelo. Wide side yards are paved and offer additional patio space. One is a covered patio just outside the dining room. Add a French door to easily expand the dining area. The other side is also a wide patio with access to the playroom/office and kitchen/family room area.
A redesigned kitchen is both functional and beautiful and features recessed, under-cabinet, and pendant lighting. Soft-close cabinetry features lazy Susan and pullout shelves, upper frosted glass-faced cabinetry and stylish pulls. Neutral quartz counters and peninsula breakfast bar complement the decorative subway tile backsplash. Updated stainless appliances include a deluxe Electrolux refrigerator large enough to store a sheet cake, Electrolux five-burner dual-fuel range with a Zephyr hood and decorative backsplash, and GE dishwasher.
The beautiful kitchen features three types of lighting, quartz counters and good counter space. 
The large casual dining space and family room offer lots of room to gather and relax. Glass French doors open to another large room and wonderful flexible space with side yard access and skylight. Customize for a home office or playroom.
An updated and stylish powder room with a quartz counter is also located on the main level.
Pocket doors can close off the kitchen and family room from the more formal rooms for added privacy.
The stairwell is bright with the addition of a clerestory and motion detector lights line the upstairs hallway. Hardwood floors continue in each of the bedrooms. Two bedrooms have front-facing windows and peek views of the surrounding mountains. Two bedrooms have rear-facing windows that look out over the backyard gardens. The closets feature cedar floors. A full bathroom is beautifully updated with porcelain tile floors, and a bathtub/shower combination.
The master bedroom, also on the upper level has a triple sliding door closet and a second closet with dual sliding doors, plantation shutters, and backyard views. Two stylish mirrors with hidden cabinets and adjustable shelves are over a dual-sink vanity with quartz counter and soft-close cabinets. Three light sources include vanity, recessed and decorative sconces. A bathroom door also features a full-length mirror on both sides. The oversize shower has a rain head and handheld showerhead and bench and features quartz tile with a band of decorative mosaic tile and in-shower niche shelves.
Additional office/flexible space was added off the mudroom.
More features include a mudroom with side yard access, storage, utility sink and laundry including a front-loading LG washer and dryer with pedestal, HVAC, and attic fan.
