On the market for the first time since 1989, this elegant English Tudor designed by the well-known architect Theodore Plestch is located in the heart of San Marino, and sits majestically beyond a manicured lawn, towering trees and a beautifully landscaped front yard. The walkway with brick ribbons leads to a distinguished arched front door which welcomes one to an entry hall featuring an exquisite quarter sawn oak floor that flows throughout the home. The spacious living room to the left is anchored by a handsome fireplace with a wood-paneled wall backdrop and framed by two built-in book shelves & cabinets. It also showcases crown moldings, leaded windows and French doors leading to an inviting sun room with wall-to-wall sliding doors that open to the vintage brick patio and expansive backyard. Beyond the entry hall is the gracious formal dining room featuring a picturesque window, a built-in china cabinet and French doors connecting the sun room. The formal dining room also adjoins a charming breakfast room with chair railing and a view of the rear yard. The functional kitchen leads to a service porch with a door to the backyard and driveway. To the right of the entry an adjoining hall leads to a powder room and a convertible bedroom or den accented with wood paneled walls, chair railing, and a delightful nautical window that overlooks the lush front yard. A stairway off the entry leads to the second floor where all the bedrooms reside. The upstairs landing ushers one to a centrally located bath between two spacious bedrooms, both of which have walk-in closets. A third bedroom with great views of the back yard and newly installed wood floor is being used as the family hangout spot. The landing also hosts multiple closets, including a cedar lined closet. The wonderful master suite features a full bath with a separate shower stall and tub, plus a vanity/dressing room with additional wardrobe. The park-like backyard is shaded by matured trees; a grassy lawn graced by colorful plantings and a badminton/basketball court that’s perfect for outdoor activities. The 2-car detached garage is accessible through a gated long concrete driveway with brick ribbons. Other notable features are dual central heating & A/C s systems, newer interior & exterior custom paint, professional landscaped yard, and updated automatic sprinkler systems. This handsome Tudor offers a convenient location near all the town’s central shops & stores and yet a relaxed floor plan and a private rear yard as a fabulous haven.
