House & guest house! This enchanting 1928 English Period Revival, designed by the prolific and highly regarded designer E. A. Daniell, is filled with old world charm and original architectural details, yet it is modernized for today’s living! The private grounds include pool, outdoor dining cabana room, outdoor bar, and a newer built pool house/guest house with 200 amp electrical and a new mini split a/c & heat system. This home is a private Oasis for family fun and entertaining! The formal living room offers wood beamed ceiling, hardwood floors, wall sconces, original French doors, built-in desk, bookshelves, and cozy window seats to curl up with a good book! The living room opens to the spacious formal dining room featuring built-in corner hutches, hardwood floors, and original French doors that open to a private patio to enjoy your morning coffee. Next up, the whimsical reimagined kitchen space with custom tile backsplash, copper farmhouse sink, saltillo tile flooring, center butcher block island, and high end appliances including a Bertazzoni 5 burner stove. The kitchen opens to the family room (converted large bedroom) with a wood beamed ceiling, hardwood floors, and french doors that lead out to the covered patio and pool area. There are 3 bedrooms up and 3 bedrooms downstairs, with a remodeled full bath upstairs, a remodeled 3/4 bath downstairs off the main hallway, and there is a remodeled half bath off the kitchen and laundry area. There is a fourth 3/4's bathroom in the pool house. The large bedroom downstairs is currently being used as a family room. The upstairs primary suite has its own private balcony to enjoy a glass of wine and a sunset! There is both a basement and an expansive 817 square foot attic space (552 square feet of attic space is usable for expansion). The attic space is great for storage, but could be expanded to enlarge a bedroom and add an additional bath in that space. The basement has interior access from the home. Home upgrades include central air and heat, solar panels, added insulation, copper plumbing, updated electrical, and the home is earthquake retrofitted. The home sits on a large 10,986 square foot lot. This is the first time this home has been on the market in over 30 years, so don't miss this opportunity to capture this very special home! Floor plan available upon request. Home is also being offered for lease at $9,500 per month.
