The living room’s large picture window brings in oodles of light, making a wonderful first impression. Hardwood flooring is found in the living room, and all 4 bedrooms – and is under the hallway and dining room flooring, too.
Below, see a view toward what is nearly a wall of glass with the over-sized picture windowand a window wrapping around the corner, too. The entire interior was just painted, making the whole house feel fresh and clean.
Around the corner is a nice-sized dining room, which is open to all the main living areas of the house. It is bathed in natural light from the large skylight, making this an especially pleasant area. (Pergo type flooring is present, and I’m told that there’s hardwood underneath it.) The view below shows the family room in the distance, with more natural light coming in from the back patio area.
The next dining room view shows part of the kitchen. There are 2 white doors in the distance, one of them leads to the garage and the other is a pantry.
The kitchen employs gas cooking and offers a stainless steel hood, newer Bosch dishwasher, and double sink. The counter top is a very attractive quartz that matches the wooden cabinets nicely.
There’s quite a lot of storage between the built in cabinets, which were extended, and the pantry. The large window overlooks the front yard.
And you’ve seen a hint of the family room, but here’s another view of that room and its brand new carpeting – please note the fireplace insert, which I’m told gives out a lot of heat:
The master bedroom enjoys double closets and plenty of room:
The master bath features wonderfully neutral off-white tile and a stall shower.
The hall bath also provides off-white tile and a shower over tub.
There are three more bedrooms, not shown here, but you can view them in the gallery, below.
The amazing back yard at 4843 Englewood Drive: why is it so large?
While many houses in San Jose are set far back from the street, giving an impression of a large lot, most have small back yards. Buyers would prefer that the land be in back, where it would be more used. And that is the case with this home! The house at 4843 Englewood Dr, San Jose, CA 95129 was built forward on the lot, so the 8231 SF lot is largely usable in back – and is a real treat! Check out Google’s satellite view for the perspective.
Here, only a portion of the large patio is shown – but there’s loads of room for entertaining under the stars!
The rest of the yard includes a lawn area, a playground area, and planting beds – but with so much room, you can decide whether you want a pool, a place for a trampoline, or what? Or expand the house into the patio area and still have tons of yard space left.
The neighborhood offers so much, too! Country Lane Elementary is just a few blocks away, as is lovely Saratoga Creek Park – right within the immediate neighborhood. Nearby, there are shops at Westgate, El Paseo de Saratoga, and the shops along Saratoga Avenue and Prospect Road.

Enormous back yard offering many possibilities: room to add on, build a pool, and more
Hardwood floors visible in living room and all 4 bedrooms
