This lovely light-filled craftsman bungalow has just been completely renovated and remodeled with brand new kitchen and bathroom. Skylights and french doors have been added throughout to bring in plenty of light. The spacious master bedroom has 3 skylights and french doors that open to the back garden which is filled with fruit trees, shrubs, vegetables and herbs. Tucked into a private corner under a gazebo you will find the luxurious dimension 1 spa with plentiful massage jets.
The kitchen has copper countertops and brand new stainless steel appliances, including a 2 drawer dishwasher, a gas convection oven, a microwave that doubles as an electric convection oven, and a 5 burner gas range with powerful burners.
Although the house is on the small side, it is well set up with an open floor plan for entertaining - the dining room has a large table with seating for 8, in addition to bar seating at the adjacent peninsula that connects kitchen to dining room. French doors in the dining room open into the side courtyard with delightful "hanging garden". The dining room is connected to the living room by a wide open doorway, which can be curtained off for privacy if you wish to use the living room as an extra bedroom. The living room has a double size futon that can be folded down to accommodate 2 additional guests. The living room opens onto a south facing porch and garden in the front of the house.
This house is eclectic, whimsical, full of rich colors, and decorated with arts and crafts from around the world, especially from latin america where i work most of the year.
All large and small appliances are new - a central heating system that kicks out plenty of hot air in every room, extra large capacity washer and dryer with steam action, and all the kitchen appliances you will need.
There is a programmable safe that is large enough for laptops and valuables.
The queen size bed with memory foam mattress is adjustable and has massage function and heated mattress pad. There is an over-the-bed table and monitor available if you like to work in bed (or just play around on the computer).
Although the house is a great place to have small groups of friends over, it is not a place for large parties or late night antics. This is a haven for those who appreciate peace and quiet. Despite its proximity to many conveniences, the neighborhood is extremely quiet at night and we like to keep it that way. During the day there are the typical noises of a residential neighborhood and kids playing, but traffic on the street is limited.
The house is not suitable for small children.
No smoking (of any kind) on the premises.
The owner has an office/studio in a separate building in back of the house and uses it when in town. Please inquire about the possibility of renting the office for a small additional fee. It is set up with a large adjustable sit/stand desk, office supplies, printer/copier/scanner, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. Availability will depend on timing, as i prefer to rent it only when i am out of the country for extended periods.
Well behaved pets are welcome for a small additional cleaning fee - no barkers or chewers please.
