A spectacular single-level 4BD/3BA Mid-Century Modern, 15 La Salle has been extensively renovated for entertaining and modern living with a generous, light-filled chef’s kitchen/dining room combination, high-end appliances, coffered ceilings, white oak floors, opulent owner’s suite, and huge enclosed, level-out backyard with stone patio, bocce ball court, playhouse, play area, and ample space for all kinds of weekend recreation and entertaining. Close to Hampton Field, Crocker Park, and sought-after schools.
Lush landscaping between the public street and the private drive creates a peaceful feeling of a secluded retreat — similar to a vacation home or weekend getaway. Inside, the spacious entryway beckons with white oak floors, coffered ceilings, and soft, recessed lighting. To one side is a living room with tall Marvin windows and built-in custom media center with lighted shelves and cabinets.
Further along, the entryway leads to the heart of the home–an open living area including the huge chef’s kitchen and dining room. The combination of high, recessed ceilings and wide glass doors to the backyard create an expansiveness of space; a lovely indoor-outdoor flow. The large kitchen island with breakfast bar is ideally situated for friends and family to gather for a casual meal, a glass of pre-dinner wine, or a chat during meal prep. Other features include stone counters, farm sink flanked by two Bosch dishwashers, Wolf drawer microwave, plentiful custom cabinets, and a Sub-Zero wine fridge. The discerning chef will appreciate the Wolf 6-burner gas stovetop, built-in dual ovens, Sub-zero refrigerator, and enormous walk-in pantry. The dining area is spacious enough to accommodate a holiday dinner for extended family and friends.
Off the dining room is a lovely private guest/au pair suite including full bath with tile floor, vessel sink, and walk-in shower with glass doors. Also in this wing are a mudroom with shelves and built-in storage space, a laundry room, and access to the garage.
In the other wing of the house are three bedrooms. The owner’s suite is an elegant retreat with light streaming in through a wall of windows and sliding glass doors that open onto the huge backyard. Two closets, one a substantial walk-in with transom windows, provide abundant storage. The adjoining spa-like bath enjoys a soaking tub, large tile walk-in shower with multiple shower heads, stone vanity with dual vessel sinks, and a Toto Neorest toilet.
The two additional bedrooms are also generous in size and feature sunny windows and spacious, closets, one of them cedar-lined. The bedrooms are connected by a shared bath with stone-topped vanity, dual sinks, and step-in shower.
The enclosed backyard was landscaped with an eye to outdoor entertaining, with a large paved patio, lawn, and bocce ball court. Invite the whole neighborhood for a summer party or bocce ball tournament! Also in the backyard, a separate finished outbuilding with new roof is suited to be a magical playhouse, craft space, or simply a large and beautiful storage shed.
A finished 2-car garage with internal access through the mudroom features built-in cabinets and shelves and an electric vehicle charger.
