Located in one of the most sought-after neighborhoods, this home is an excellent representative of an elegant colonial with modern amenities. Built in 1937, the home has been meticulously maintained and upgraded throughout the years. The welcoming front yard is lined with a brick walkway that leads to a covered entry. Upon entry, a delightful foyer with a handsome stairwell separates a grand living room to the left from a cozy convertible den or guest bedroom with built-in bookshelves and a lovely guest bathroom to the right. Architectural highlights include new and beautifully refinished hardwood floors, crown moldings, French doors, and recessed lighting throughout. The impressive living room boasts a stately fireplace and a picturesque bay window. Adjacent to the living room, an inviting family room is filled with natural light with a wall of French doors and 2 hexagon windows. The French doors open to a generous deck, which overlooks a spacious and professionally landscaped backyard, and expands the width of the house. The family room connects to a stately conservatory, featuring custom cherrywood wall-units with an executive island desk, corner display shelves, and a wet bar with granite counters & built-in wine racks. This room also has a wall of striking French doors that lead to the deck. The heart of this house is a centrally located, elegant formal dining room exhibiting a wall of custom mirrors and a sparkling chandelier. The dining room connects the conservatory and a hallway that leads to the well-appointed kitchen. The tastefully updated kitchen showcases a center island with Jenn-air 4 burner and grill cooktop, a newer top-of-the-line stainless steel KitchenAid double oven, a built-in microwave oven, a Bosch dishwasher, a Subzero refrigerator, granite counters and professionally resurfaced custom cabinets. A bright breakfast area with bay windows bring in natural light and offer a view of the backyard. An ideal servant’s quarter connects to a bath/laundry room with built-in shelves, and a hallway leading to the attached finished 2-car garage completes the first level. A wrap around staircase anchored by a gracious chandelier leads to the second floor landing, offering ample built-ins and a window seat overlooking the pristine front yard. The first junior bedroom suite features double closets flanking a window seat, chair rails and a ¾ bath with a frameless shower door. The spacious second junior suite is decorated with adorable chandeliers, custom hand-painted walls, chair rails, and a charming window seat framed by built-in closets. The light-filled en suite full bath has custom wallpaper and a separate shower stall. With views of the backyard, a generous master suite displays multiple closets, a huge finished walk-in attic storage (146sqft) and a luxurious master bathroom equipped with double sinks, a spa tub, a grand sumptuous shower stall with a frameless door, and a separate bidet and water closet, all enhanced by stunning marble walls and flooring. The splendid backyard is a perfect illustration of California living at its best with an expansive deck perfect for outdoor entertaining, a sparkling pool, a grassy yard with citrus trees and a delightful “kids’ zone” with a play-set. This exquisite Colonial, a truly perfect marriage of elegance and comfort, awaits its proud new owner to enjoy for years to come.
