Description

This one of a kind home boasts two to three gracious bedrooms including a large primary suite with en-suite bath and a cavernous living room with 15-foot ceilings. A large kitchen offers an abundance of storage, high-end appliances and separate pantry with washer/dryer hookup. In the hallway entrance there are closets with customized shelving followed by a wonderful sense of openness in a splendid high foyer leading to the extra wide living room. Upstairs on the mezzanine level are two additional grandly proportioned bedrooms with a separate bathroom and abundant closet space overlooking the main floor of the residence.

Off one of them currently used as an office is a bonus walk-in storage area designed by California Closets.
