Located on open space, nature preserve, lake and hiking trails on a small private street and a lovely neighborhood just a few miles North of downtown. A block to bus line on Broadway are a natural grocery, coffee shop and several restaurants, a yoga studio and more. Our home is spacious, warm, comfortable, informal while elegant, and decorated with eclectic art from our travels around the world. It is large - over 5,000 sq feet. Every room is large, bright and spacious. It is a flexible home and will accommodate a few people without seeming overwhelming, or a several couples or a family. 2 Large, lake view offices are easily converted to bedrooms with high quality, full depth mattresses on conventional hight frames. Sleeping lofts in several rooms delight children as sleeping and playing spaces. Parks/playing fields and playgrounds are in walking distance. Hiking and biking trails are literally right out the door. Views of the lake and foothills from almost every room! A swamp cooler keeps our home very comfortable in Summer.

Laundry and 3/4 bath completes this level.
