Two incredible spaces on one private lot (4+BD Spanish revival home and modern, full-service studio loft ADU):

MAIN HOME: Ultra-charming, architecturally rich  4+BD/1.5BA split level Spanish Tudor revival featuring Mediterranean-inspired archways, stylish built-ins, hardwood floors, and unique vintage details. A beautiful archway frames the front door leading into the main hallway where the arch theme continues into the living room and kitchen. The vaulted ceilings and chic built-ins of the sunken living room complement the dramatic radius window – a showstopper. Two steps lead to the spacious, sun-washed formal dining room with coved ceiling. The kitchen offers a 5-burner gas stove with extra broiler, lots of countertop space, high open shelves, large stainless-steel sink, and breakfast nook with a narrow leaded glass China cabinet.  The main floor also features a powder room plus a bedroom with built-in shelves and a walk-in closet.  The upstairs sunlit bedrooms each have their own walk-in closets (the primary suite’s is two levels).  The full bath offers both a rainfall shower- over- tub beautifully framed by an archway plus an extra shower with rainfall showerhead and Mediterranean arched entry.  A narrow cabinet opens to reveal an old-fashioned laundry chute which drops to the laundry room.  The street level contains a fourth bedroom with a large closet, bonus room with a separate outside entrance (perfect for a home office or easily converted into a fifth bedroom), and laundry room with frontload washer/dryer, ironing board closet, and laundry chute catchall.  

MODERN ADU: un-filled detached studio featuring an open space floor plan, bedroom loft, vaulted ceilings with small skylight positioned windows, full bath with walk-in shower, and a sunny breakfast nook.  The modern kitchen includes a stainless-steel sink, 4-burner gas stove, lots of counter space, and subway tile backsplash. With its own separate entrance, this unit is ideal for a live-in nanny’s quarters, in-law unit, or vacation rental. 

YARD SPACE:  The main house and ADU share a rear yard that provides a quiet oasis from a busy day at the office with a verdant lawn, high fence for privacy, access to the 2-car garage (with plenty of parking for several more cars along the driveway) and planter box laden with tomatoes and kale for that farm-to-table cuisine.  

The front of the house is tastefully landscaped with a separated alcove for a front yard patio.  

The property is convenient for the commuter, close to major freeways, as well as trail hikes in Sibley, Temescal, and Joaquin Miller Regional parks.
