A picture-perfect 1927 English cottage filled with the grace and elegance of the period. The three bedroom, two bath home welcomes you in via a spacious living room wrapped in windows, with a hand hewn beamed ceiling as well as custom forged fixtures that were created on-site when the home was built. There are lovely features throughout including hardwood floors, coved doorways, a stately Clinker brick fireplace, a formal dining room with rich wood built-ins and French doors that step out to a center patio. To the rear of the house is an inviting den, with its own fireplace, that adjoins the beautifully remodeled kitchen with high-end appliances, gleaming wood, glass-fronted custom cabinetry, hand inlaid counters and a charming breakfast area.
The property also includes the original two-story “carriage house” that has a large bedroom and living area with a bathroom, kitchen and adjoining studio or workshop. It is ideal for visiting family or to use as a home office. This separate bonus apartment looks out at the shade dappled rear yard which is sited under an expansive Oak tree.
The exterior of the house has a tall, gabled roof, California native plantings, a magnificent Redwood, as well as an inviting front walled patio walk that offers incredible curb appeal. Additionally, the residence sits in the much-desired Historic Highlands Landmark District. Don’t miss this idyllic property!
