East Coast Style, West Coast Location.
This elegant Cape Cod style home brings a little East Coast charm to St. Francis Wood.
Set back from the street and framed by a beautifully landscaped front yard, the quaint façade of this fully detached home belies a spacious and modern interior. Step through the portico and the cheerful blue door into the elegant foyer. To the left, an expansive living room awaits with space for two seating areas separated by a cozy fireplace with marble surround and wood mantle. To the right, the formal dining room with coved ceilings and custom illuminated corner cabinets flows seamlessly into a modern kitchen. Even the most discerning chef will be pleased with the kitchen’s thoughtful layout and high-end stainless-steel KitchenAid and Frigidaire Pro appliances. Caesarstone counters grace the tops of the cabinets and the convenient island with bar seating. Recessed lighting, bright white cabinets that extend to the ceiling, and windows that overlook the yard all unite to keep this space happy and bright. A door that leads directly to the patio means that your grill is only a few steps away.
On the right side of the main floor, two spacious bedrooms and a full bathroom are separated from the social rooms for privacy and noise control. The spacious front bedroom features two walk-in closets, while the rear bedroom overlooks the rear yard and offers its own sizable walk-in closet. The full bathroom offers a dual-sink vanity with marble counter, a vintage mirror with medicine cabinets, shower-over-tub, elegant porcelain tile, and a convenient laundry closet. Additional features on this level include a coat-closet and a built-in linen closet.
The master suite is set apart on the upper level, offering maximum privacy. The spacious bedroom with a wall of built-in bookshelves opens to a luxurious walk-in closet and dressing room that features a built-in dresser topped with Carrara marble. The master bathroom has been lovingly renovated with herringbone patterned Carrara marble tiles, a walk-in shower with rain showerhead, sleek vanity, built-in cabinets, and radiant floor heat. The expansive finished attic space offers space to set up a hobby room, lounge, work-out space, or to envision your own future expansion.
An internal staircase from the kitchen leads down to the 2-car side by side garage and additional basement space to create a workshop or store all of your camping and adventure gear. Outside of the garage, the deep front parking area can accommodate an additional four cars.
The kitchen opens directly to a low-maintenance yard surrounded by planter beds with mature landscaping. Two separate patio areas are divided by a freestanding casita that provides a great getaway space. This “Room of Requirement” is the perfect spot for relaxing, enjoying football and barbecue days, home office or other use.
