Glorious Eastmont compound: Sheltering beneath a giant live oak tree, 7982 Hillmont Drive is an ultra-charming 2BD/1BA 1070 sq ft traditional bungalow with a magnificent 1BD/1BA 793 sq ft second home on one enchanted lot that is also home to nine redwood trees. Both homes feature spacious rooms, large sunny windows, and modern kitchens and baths. The homes share a rambling, woodsy backyard perfect for entertaining with multiple seating areas, mature landscaping, and a new Tiny House (ideal for home office, crafts, or yoga studio) with its own permaculture garden.

Screened from the street by trees and bamboo, a partly shaded deck runs the width of the home, creating a tranquil woodsy space for morning coffee or a cold drink on a summer evening. Inside, the spacious living room is filled with natural light with three windows overlooking the deck and a bay window overlooking the lovely backyard. A fireplace with wood stove insert provides extra warmth on cold winter evenings.

The updated eat-in kitchen features a gas range, beautiful wood cabinets, a hanging pot rack, expansive tile and stone countertops beneath distinctive pendant lights, pantry cabinet, and a Haier European washer/dryer unit. Corner windows catch the sun, and a glass door opens onto the back patio. At the other end of the kitchen, the sunny dining area is lit by large windows and a glass door opens onto the front deck.

Two generous bedrooms, each with their own charming features, share a full bath with tile shower over tub with tile surround, and vanity for storage.

Resting behind the bungalow is a second contemporary 1BD/1BA home. Sleek and sophisticated, this loft-style home is filled with light and features vaulted wood ceilings with exposed beams, a wide-open floor plan, and partial bay and city views.

On the ground level is a living room and distinctive dining area set within a beautiful 5-sided bay window overlooking the wooded backyard. The modern kitchen features stone countertops with subway tile backsplash, gas range, and a laundry nook. A separate exit opens onto a flagstone pathway leading to the street.

Up a short flight of stairs, the open mezzanine space would be perfect for a study or office, and behind a pocket door is a full bath featuring a tile shower over tub and vanity. Just a few steps up from the mezzanine, a spacious light-filled bedroom boasts a wall of gleaming wood closets for abundant storage and corner windows with partial bay and city views.

From the back patio, stone steps lead to the glorious backyard, an enchanting space for entertaining under the stars or tranquil meditation among a profusion of ferns, succulents, flowering plants, climbing roses, and trailing nasturtiums. As a bonus, citrus and pear trees provide fruit.

At the back of the yard, in the shade of a redwood tree and behind a flower-covered trellis, a whimsical Tiny House is yet another space with abundant potential. The building has its own wood deck, planting beds, and permaculture vegetable garden. Inside, the vaulted ceiling with three skylights and multi-pane windows fill the space with light. Plumbed for water and sewer, electricity and spigots for water are just a few yards from the building.
