The living room faces away from the street into a park-like setting with mature redwoods, acacia, and pepper trees surrounded by neighborly cedar, cypress and pines. The room features high ceilings, large windows, a concealed entertainment center, recessed lighting, and patio doors that open onto a spacious 400 square foot patio and over 500 square foot lawn.
The dining area, with its luxurious built-in walnut side board and cabinets, receives ample natural light through a distinctive oval skylight and lighting options that set the mood for any dinner party. Sconces elegantly light your path from the entry way, into the dining area, and on to the living room.

A pocket door between the kitchen and living room allows easy flow or offers quiet in each room. Often a social gathering point, the 250 square foot kitchen is equipped with stainless-steel appliances, double oven, gorgeous two-tone maple and walnut cabinets with display doors, and under-cabinet lighting for food prep areas. A built-in book case and large lighted pantry provide additional storage including a large wine rack. The concrete counters, granite backsplash, cement tiled floors, and built-in dimmable recessed lighting give the room an earthy feel.
The main bedroom features 9-ft ceilings with crown molding, recessed adjustable lighting, and ceiling fan.

Outside, the park-like grounds offer a peaceful sit-in garden with a limestone bench and secluded flagstone patio positioned specifically to provide a sunny winter space to relax and enjoy morning warmth. The surrounding flowers and plantings attract humming birds, butterflies, and seasonal finches as they migrate through the neighborhood. The large lawn area is flanked by a large and inviting patio, a garden planted specifically with flowers to cut and bring into your home. Beyond the flower garden is a gardener’s delight, a raised herb garden and two vegetable beds. There is a full automatic irrigation system which includes a hand held remote for additional manual control.
Framing the backyard are redwood fences that support various flowering vines that create a show of color throughout the year, and mature hedges add depth to the landscape.

A cute doll house of a shed complements the backyard, picture-perfect with double-pane windows & skylight. It is currently used for storage.
