Front and Entry
The natural beauty of mature trees surround this traditionally styled home backing up to protected open space. Enjoy the sounds of nature and the peaceful quiet of this unique environment. A separate building to house two vehicles lies in front of the home. The uniform wood siding of the home's exterior lends a look and feel of Americana living. The walkway of large flagstones is wide enough to set up a small sitting area before you make your way up the steps to the front entry.
Living and Dining Rooms
The combined open living and dining spaces lend themselves to gatherings around the elegantly tiled hearth situated in the center of the spaces. Handsome hardwood floors and carpeting clearly define the rooms as separate spaces. Passing through french doors in the dining room, enter the private courtyard suitable for al fresco dining. The family room located next to the kitchen, currently used as an office, has a modern white tiled fireplace.
Kitchen and Family Rooms
A carpeted family room, which can also be set up as an office, is located adjacent to the square shaped kitchen. Steps away from the kitchen, enjoy meals in the dining area overlooking the courtyard. The kitchen's light colored granite countertops are easy to clean and maintain. A large stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher are included. A large stainless sink basin allows ample room to wash larger items as you keep an eye on the kids in the back yard through the window right above the sink. Low profile earth toned shuttered cabinets lend an antiqued farmhouse look to the kitchen.
Master Bedroom and Bath
The hues of taupe in the master bedroom and bath serve as a warm backdrop for a myriad of color schemes. Custom-look drapery elegantly frame large windows in a niche on one of the bedroom’s walls, creating a quaint sitting area. The master bath utilizes the space efficiently with dual porcelain sinks, ample tiled counter space and undercounter storage, in addition to a built-in storage cabinet on one wall. Start your day in the shower and end the day by relaxing in the separate tub enclosure, as you gaze out the window onto the foothills of the open space.
Guest Bedrooms and Bath
Two identically sized secondary bedrooms are located on the opposite end of the second floor down the hallway. Both have windows to allow natural light inside, while white ceiling fan lights illuminate each room and produce gentle breezes in the warmer months. In addition, each bedroom has its own spacious wall closet. Both bedrooms share a bathroom located off the hallway. There is also a half bath downstairs.
Backyard and Patio
A rich redwood colored open lattice graces the top of the outdoor patio in the back yard, while enchanting vines encircle the pillars. Warm lanterns hang from the patio ceiling, ready to set the mood in the evening. Looking beyond the patio, behold tall mature trees surrounding a spacious flat area suitable for your choice of grass or xeriscape design, with room to spare for a vegetable garden. A retaining wall separates a small hillside area on the other side, and a play structure for the children resides along another wall.
