Beautiful, Contemporary-California style home in a neighborhood known for huge Visalia Oak and Sequoia Redwood trees. Less than 1 mile from Downtown, Convention Center, Hospital District.
This property has been featured on the Garden Tour by the Garden Club, twice! One year for the lushly planted backyard and outdoor living space. And another year for the unique use of hardscape and drought-tolerant plants to create the beautiful front yard landscape.
The backyard features a hot tub, built-in fire pit, large waterfall and Koi pond with beautiful professionally done landscaping. The back yard is entirely patio surrounded by landscaping, rather than a grassy lawn.
The covered patio area has a functional outdoor kitchen and an outdoor dining table which seats 6. The remainder of the patio is covered with 2 large umbrellas, so that nearly the entire backyard is shaded. This allows for use of the backyard throughout the summer.
But there is more...! This outdoor living space features a very large water feature with a waterfall and a Koi Pond. There is also a built-in gas fire pit and large comfortable seating area. The large, crystal-clear water, hot tub has room for 6 adults.
In the summer, you will appreciate the coolness of the shade from the large trees, covered patios, and the water feature. The hot tub may be kept cool and guests often use it in the summer as a relaxing way to cool off. Please let me know if you would like to use the hot tub in the summer so that I can prepare it for you.
In the winter, after your warm soak in the hot tub, enjoy relaxing by the fire pit with your family and friends. It will keep you comfortably warm even on cold winter nights.
Follow the path through the front yard past the boulders, dry creek bed, and desert-scape landscape design. There is another patio space here as you make your way up to the covered porch, that leads to the front door.
Elegant landscape lighting adds ambiance to the front and the back landscaping and living spaces.
The internet booster provides a strong signal throughout the entire property, including outside living spaces. The large driveway accommodates 3-4 vehicles.
There is a garden apartment, (listing #800239) on the other side of the garage from this house. The apartment has its own courtyard and shares only the driveway with this house.
Sometimes, larger groups book both the house and the apartment if both are available. I can assist you with co-ordinating this arrangement if it will work well for your group.
This charming house was built about 1940, and has a lot of character to show for it! I purchased the home in 2009 and completed the renovation in 2012.
The specific street the house is on is a main thoroughfare, (although the house is set back from the street), and is less than1 mile from downtown, the Convention Center, and the Hospital District. Downtown has lovely shops, restaurants, and bars.
The home is beautifully decorated in a contemporary-CA style. This is not just a basic suburban house in a basic suburban neighborhood. The thought, effort, and money that went into the decor is evident. You will feel like you are truly on vacation here!
