81 Echo:
Through a rose-covered arbor, the enchanted and enclosed front garden is shaded by mature lemon, palm, and Japanese maple trees and brims with succulents, potted plants, and flowers. A quiet fountain murmurs in the tranquil space.

Stairs lead to a covered porch, and the front door opens onto the spacious open living/dining area featuring hardwood floors, high ceilings, and elegant cove lighting. Large windows fill the rooms with light, and a stone fireplace provides warmth in winter months.

Through a keyhole doorway is the updated chef’s kitchen with environmentally friendly bamboo floors, expansive stone countertops for food prep, abundant cabinets for storage, and a hanging pot rack to keep your favorite pans close at hand. The discerning home chef will appreciate the Jade professional gas range and Bosch dishwasher.

Off the dining room is an ensuite bedroom with a built-in desk and shelves. The generous adjoining bath features travertine floors, a vintage-style vanity with tile top and backsplash, vintage tile shower over tub with glass door, and two linen closets to store all the bath sheets, towels, and foaming crystals needed for luxurious bathing.

On the other side of the home, a staircase descends to the completely remodeled lower level, where the casual family/media room, featuring a sleek built-in entertainment center, is open to an office alcove on either side, each with a built-in desk and shelves. Efficient radiant heating warms the paver-style tile floors, perfect for chilly mornings.

Two bedrooms on this level feature built-in window seats and large closets for abundant storage. The bedrooms share a spacious bath with a shower above an oversized tub with a brilliant tile surround and walls of colorful tile and glass brick. Flanked by sunny windows, an expansive tile-topped vanity with dual sinks runs the length of one wall, with cabinets and drawers to provide storage.

Also on this level is a laundry room with washer and dryer, and a separate entrance to the back yard and parking area.

83 Echo:
To the rear of 81 Echo is the 2BD/2BA modern home known as 83 Echo. Completely rebuilt in 2016, the modern, sophisticated home features a bedroom on the lower level with a versatile Murphy bed and private entrance to the back yard and parking area. The adjoining bath boasts a walk-in shower with glass subway tile walls and frameless glass door, a modern stone-topped vanity, and a linen closet for storage. Also on this level is a laundry area with stacked washer and dryer.

On the upper level is an open concept, loft-like living area with vaulted ceiling and engineered hardwood floors, a spacious owner’s suite, and an expansive deck perfect for entertaining or for contemplating the star-filled skies. The modern kitchen features stone countertops and decorative tile backsplash, a gas stove with griddle, and handy pot rack and knife magnets. A greenhouse window and skylight catch the sun.

Common Spaces:
The original back yard has been repurposed to create a magical, paved, outdoor courtyard surrounded by eclectic groupings of palm trees, flowering plants, succulents, bougainvillea, and giant sunflowers. Large patio areas provide space for lounge furniture and umbrella-topped tables for entertaining. String some lights around this spacious courtyard, and throw the ultimate summer party.
