If Spanish Revival is your style, come a-running to this classic, 1930 beauty. Modern conveniences wrapped in Mediterranean charm: asymmetrical facade, low-pitched Spanish tile roof, Saltillo tile, covered front porch, not one but two brick courtyards in the back, stucco exterior, wrought iron gates and interior detail, plaster interior walls, and arched doorways. Gleaming hardwood floors, just refinished, are throughout. Step into the living room with coved, high ceiling, base board molding, tear drop picture window, a gas/wood fireplace with custom built surround that includes a marble mantel and dentil moulding, custom Saltillo tile hearth and wrought iron cover. This is open to the dining room with elegant sashed window curtains.
The kitchen is a gourmet cook’s world unto itself: A Viking Professional with 4-burners, grill and double oven with Thermador hood vent anchors this showpiece. All the other appliances are stainless steel, a Sub-Zero side by side fridge/freezer, Sharp Carousel built-in microwave, Kitchen Aid Dishwasher, as well as a double, stainless steel sink. The floor, counters and backsplash are golden granite cut from the same slab. There’s a breakfast bar and hand built custom wood cabinets. Across the hallway is the laundry room with access to the backyard. Even here, there is elegance: crown molding, Caesarstone folding counter, custom built drawers and cabinets. Off the hallway are three bedrooms and spa bathroom.
Nearest the living room, the first bedroom is currently used as an office with floor to ceiling, custom built book shelves, walk-in closet with built-in dresser and cabinet and half bathroom with granite tile floor and crown molding. The second bedroom has baseboard molding and a walk-in style closet with built-in dresser. The third bedroom has an exposed beam ceiling, baseboard molding, a walk-in style closet with built-in dresser and access to the back courtyard. The luxurious bathroom done in travertine has a Kohler spa tub with overhead shower, crown molding, custom wood cabinets, and pedestal sink. Step into your private backyard with two sitting areas. The one nearest the third bedroom includes a babbling stone fountain and views of the surrounding mountains. Both are fully enclosed.
The front yard is impressively landscaped with drought tolerant vegetation and DG mulching. This home also includes a 2-car detached garage, an automatic sprinkler system, double pane, vinyl casement windows, recessed lights, copper plumbing, whole house security system, upgraded electric, scuppers with copper downspouts, copper plumbing, chimney with spark arrestor and rain cover and a California basement.
