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.
