Walking & Hiking the San Luis Obispo Broker Tour

On Tuesday as we ran between the rain drops we preview some great homes.  My favorites were near Laguna Lake, the first off Royal Way on Partridge.  This home is almost 1500 sq ft and is a custom built two bedroom two bath home with vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling windows allowing the outdoors in.  Hand-carved doors, custom cabinets, tile floors. Private patios & lush gardens surround the home. This home would be a prefect for two and is nestled in one of the nicest neighborhood in San Luis Obispo.  If you are a hiker, you will find the neighborhood trailhead at the end of Royal Way leading you to the Irish Hills Natural Reserve and Trail.

A newly renovate three bedroom two bath home on Oceanaire is located closer to Laguna Lake.  It has been beautifully painted inside and out.  New kitchen and baths, hardwood floors and carpet in the living room and bedrooms, the front and backyards have been completely landscaped, the driveway is now concrete and the roof has been replaced. This home is move-in ready.  This is a great walking neighborhood, a ½ mile walk to your local market or better yet a stroll to small parks that are look points over Laguna Lake.

Downtown San Luis Obispo featured my favorite home this week located ½ mile from the ‘heart of downtown’ and the Thursday Night Farmer’s Market.  It is steps from the San Luis Creek which meanders all through the City of San Luis Obispo.  This home on a quite street off Lincoln & Chorro and is an older home built in 1952, I admire the builders vision in this home and with classic lines that still work today.

As you approach what appears to be the front door you are actually entering a serene & sunny courtyard before reaching the front door.  The living room has hardwood floors and a brick fireplace, a large family kitchen and three bedrooms.  The courtyard leads you to a large backyard with several flower gardens and raised vegetable gardens; there is even a gate to the neighbor’s yard for backyard chats.  This is a walking neighborhood to little parks nestled between homes to longer walks to downtown slo.

The Three R’s

In the last 35 years the amount of waste has almost doubled from 2.7 to 4.4 pounds per day.  Californians send 40 million tons annually to landfills. Right now Americans on average only recycle 30% of their garbage.[1]

Every time you put trash into the waste basket in your office or the kitchen and empty it later into the big waste receptacle you are sending it straight to the landfill.  Label your trash container, “Landfill” as a constant reminder to reduce your waste.

Reduce your impact of waste by cutting done before buying food and other packaged goods.  Think how you can avoid extra packaging and how much you will be throwing away.  Consider buying a one gallon bottle of juice verses 8 individual servings of juice or better yet consider frozen juice.  You add the water to the juice and will have less packaging & waste by using your own container.

Reuse that juice container or cottage container for your own ‘lunchables’.  Cut down on paper napkins by using cloth napkins at dinner time and cloth kitchen towels that you can reuse over and over again instead of paper towels.  Clothes are the easiest to recycle, either at a consignment shop where you can trade clothes and earn money.  Donate clothes to thrift shops and your neighborhood Goodwill®.

Recycle all of your newspaper & magazines, soda cans, aluminum products such as pie tins and foil, glass and if you must use plastic bottles from juice or soda, please remove the caps they are a different plastic than the bottle.  (Reminder, plastic is made from one of the most important energy resources, oil.)  Take your cans and bottles to recycle centers and earn extra money to start an herb or vegetable garden. Start a community project, recycle and donate the proceeds to the ‘Food Bank’ in your town.

Small simple steps to save our Earth will make a big difference to our future; join me by working the three R’s daily.
