A Neighborhood for Every Lifestyle
This skyward haven on a hill with sweeping picturesque views provides a sanctuary for modern living. The front terraced gardens offer veggies like artichokes and tomatoes, roses and other blooms, avocadoes, and the shade from a mature oak where you can enjoy a variety of birds and temperate weather. Refreshed inside and out with many upgrades, this home shows strong pride of ownership. Oversized picture windows capture beautiful light throughout the day in the living room and first bedroom. At the heart of the home is a custom eat-in-kitchen with new floors, counters and backsplash in elegant finishes, upgraded cabinets, a 6-burner Thermador range oven, Thermador dishwasher, and a dining nook with original built-in shelf and a charming dutch door to the porch. The stacked laundry and LG 4-door fridge are conveniently tucked into the adjacent mud room that leads to the oversized wardrobe room & large bedroom with half bath. Through the back door a sweet outdoor living oasis awaits with space for gardening, entertaining, cookouts, relaxing and tinkering in the rear shed with its own dutch door. The basement, front shed & detached garage offer additional storage.
