Take advantage of record-low mortgage rates by closing on a new single-family home at Turnleaf at The Collective, a bold, age-qualified community by Anthem United in Manteca.

1141 Ambrose Drive is a 2,146-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow featuring the Plan 1 design. A stately portico creates a memorable first impression and is accompanied by a covered front porch. Entering through the front door, you’ll notice a flex space on your right, which could serve as a home office, gym or craft room. The entryway leads to the open-concept kitchen and great room — the true heart of the home.
Home chefs will marvel at the recessed panel beech cabinets with hidden hinges and door hardware, stainless steel Frigidaire Gallery appliances, granite countertops, full tile backsplash, spacious walk-in pantry, breakfast bar seating, and dual bowl stainless steel sink.
Head down the hall to the laundry room and mudroom area, which provides access to the two-car garage and workshop area. Upper cabinets over the washer and dryer offers plenty of storage for laundry essentials, while the built-in bench seat with coat hooks makes for a great landing zone.
Travel farther down the hall and you’ll stumble upon the home’s secondary bedroom and adjacent three-piece bathroom, complete with a soaker tub or optional tub/shower combination. The real pièce de résistance, however, is the owners’ suite, which touts a spacious walk-in closet, ensuite bath and an optional access door to the outdoor patio. The luxurious ensuite is characterized by a linen closet, private water closet, double sink vanity, and a spa-like master shower with clear glass enclosure. 1141 Ambrose Drive is currently listed for $542,530.
Just down the street is 1147 Ambrose Drive, a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom bungalow with 2,354 square feet of living space. The Plan 2 design is characterized by a sleek and modern front door that complements the garage door. The covered front porch leads to a charming entryway that connects to the hallway and secondary bedroom suite. This space is ideal for hosting overnight guests, who will surely enjoy the privacy of having their own three-piece bathroom and a walk-in closet.
A few steps farther down the hallway leads you to the flex space, which has a large window that draws in plenty of natural light. Opposite this space is the powder room and laundry room/mudroom, which offers access to the two-car garage and workshop area. The far end of the house includes the open-concept kitchen, family room and dining area. There’s a large island with breakfast bar seating and an integrated dual bowl sink, and the dining nook connects to the covered patio should you wish to dine alfresco.
The owners’ suite is well laid-out with a vestibule by the entrance to separate it from the main living area. The ensuite boasts a walk-in closet, private water closet, double sink vanity and a frameless glass shower with a seat. 1147 Ambrose Drive is priced at $569,580.
