San Luis Obispo house description

This sophisticated four-bedroom delight is perched over lovely Stenner Creek, a hidden jewel in Downtown San Luis Obispo. This dog- friendly home provides a getaway for those seeking comfortable elegance. Whether it's a romantic weekend, anniversary, wedding, golf or spa vacation, the home’s modern architecture provides a serene visit to the Central Coast.

The Creek House is furnished in a sophisticated style with comfort in mind. The expansive living room includes a wood burning fireplace and provides an ideal setting for a party, or for a relaxing evening enjoying the large flat screen TV (on demand Netflix account included). The large windows throughout bring nature inside, with magnificent scenic views. Enjoy early morning sightings of our resident blue heron and deer family.

The dining room is the perfect place to share a fabulous meal with 7 of your loved ones while watching the clusters of majestic monarch butterflies that call our beautiful trees home during the winter months.

The inviting sunny gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for the chef in your group, boasting a gas stove, convection oven, microwave, granite counter tops, spacious refrigerator, freezer and sharp knifes! Whether preparing the perfect Thanksgiving Feast or a light snack, the home will provide all that you need.
Walk through the adjoining breakfast nook’s French doors out to the expansive Bar B-Q and outdoor eating area to enjoy cocktails as the sunsets over Cerro San Luis.

There are four spacious and immaculate bedrooms, each of them unique and decorated with the utmost attention to detail. Upstairs you will find two spacious master suites. The Garden Suite has a comfortable king-sized bed with fluffy pillows. You can enjoy TV in bed, be lulled to sleep by soft music or indulge in your favorite read warmed by the romantic wood-burning fireplace. This spacious suite features a stunning private bathroom with dramatic shower views of Madonna Mountain.
A second master suite, Monarch Suite, with a luxurious queen-sized bed and private bath features dramatic views of the tree lined creek.

Conveniently located on the main floor you will discover 2 more bedrooms, Solitude and Peace, each with queen size beds that share a spacious full bathroom and a large deck cantilevered over the creek.
Wake to the small wild birds visiting the deck feeders and filling your day with cheerful songs.

Stow your cars in the large 2-car garage and venture away from this private paradise to explore San Luis Obispo on foot. The historic Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, established in 1772, is an easy five-minute stroll away. America’s first solar powered theatre, Palm Theatre, the premiere Independent Movie Theatre of the Central Coast is just around the corner. Does the tantalizing scent of prepared bar-b-que ribs, or the cornucopia of color of freshly picked produce delight your senses? Then Thursday Night -Farmers Market is the place for you to be from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. every Thursday. With more than 120 vendors providing everything from ribs, sausage, tri-tip, fresh flowers, organic produce and seasonal treats. It’s an amazing place to people watch, shop, and enjoy an event that has the distinction of being one of the greatest weekly events of California. Less than a ten-minute walk leads you to the center of San Luis Obispo’s famous artisan fine dining. Enjoy a selection of menus celebrating the seasonality of the area's products. And if it is nightlife you are looking for San Luis Obispo's energizing nightlife and entertainment is sure to invigorate.

The attention to detail on the property makes your visit a truly unique experience. After a day of exploring the Central Coast relax on one of the expansive decks sipping wine or roasting marshmallows.
