NOTES FROM THE SELLER
When asked what they will miss about living in the home: “Soaking in the sun through the large windows in the living area! Gathering around the large island for meals and parties! Being in Fircrest and so close to the park and rec center are such great perks of this house!”
From 1014 Corona you’re just 3 minutes drive to the Fircrest park, tot lot and pool. The Fircrest Community Center hosts a swim team, and year-round activities for all ages. It also offers tennis & basketball courts, newly renovated Tot-Lot (a fully fenced playground for younger children), soccer fields, baseball, and basketball, and summer sports camps.
According to the sellers, the best place for coffee and breakfast is Espresso Yourself. Just a mile away and you can enjoy your favorite latte, mocha, tea or smoothie. Make it a real treat by grabbing a Fisher scone to go with it! That’s right, you don’t have to go to the fair just to have that, yummy, raspberry filled scone + they’re bigger than the fair scones too! If you’re in the mood for some lunch, they have really good sandwiches that the locals rave about.
