Situated on a quiet street lined with tall palm trees, this delightful Spanish cottage has been thoughtfully expanded and updated since 2002 by the current owner. The vintage cement block walkway lined with bricks and colorful roses welcomes one to the covered front porch. The striking front door is the prelude to the beautiful living room showcasing the wood floor that flows throughout the home, a vaulted ceiling with beams and an adobe fireplace flanked by candlestick sconces. The spacious living room adjoins the formal dining room through a large doorway. The dining room is anchored by a striking round bronze chandelier and has French doors leading to the covered porch with a view of the front yard. The efficient kitchen has been updated with granite countertops, wood cabinets and is open to the charming breakfast area through a large arched doorway. On the other end of the kitchen is the “mudroom” with additional counter and cabinet space as well as a side door leading to the driveway, garage and rear yard. There are two large bedrooms, one with a walk-in closet and the other with a cedar-lined mirror wardrobe. These bedrooms are serviced by a centrally located roomy hall bathroom with a granite countertop and a tile surrounds tub. The comfortable master suite features recessed lights, a huge walk-in closet with custom shelves and cabinets, and an updated full bath with double sinks and tile floor. This room leads to the gated private rear yard. The newly redesigned landscaped backyard is perfect for relaxing with a verdant lawn surrounded by brick pavers and an inviting “pavilion”; it is ideal for outdoor gatherings and dining. Behind the garage, is a permitted 250 Sq.ft. bonus room with a ¾ bath currently used as an office. Other noteworthy highlights for this well-maintained Spanish cottage include newer custom interior/exterior paint, central alam and central heating and A/C system, plus copper plumbing. It is just waiting for a new owner to call it home!
