Colorful trees and plants frame the walkway and flagstone steps leading to the double doors of this elegant 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home. The doors open to a spacious, carpeted living room. An angled wood-paneled ceiling with exposed beams, accented with a large window over the doors, lets the light stream in. The living room looks out through double sliding doors over a deck and lawn to more trees and greenery. Down a few steps is a wood-lined cozy, den with built-in shelves and cabinets, track lighting, and a wood-burning stove with a brick hearth, all looking out on the same peaceful back yard and wrap-around deck through double sliding doors. The patio includes a gazebo, benches, and walkways, all leading to the Santa Cruz Gardens Park with playground, benches, picnic tables, and scenic walking trails.
The formal dining room shares the living room’s angled ceiling and beams, as does the kitchen. The kitchen has ample windows for more views of the greenery outside, a five-burner gas stove and double oven, a stainless steel French-door refrigerator, double porcelain sink, and crisp white cabinets to contrast with the tile counters and hardwood floors. The kitchen includes its own dining area. It overlooks and opens through sliding doors to the wrap-around deck with multiple levels under the shade of a trellis, ready for entertaining and relaxing in the sun or shade. A half-bath has subway tile details, upgraded counters, and a water-saving dual-flush toilet.
Upstairs is a carpeted master suite with crown molding and wood-framed windows overlooking the park and trees. The master bath features custom tile work throughout with marble inlays, and a spacious walk-in steam shower.
Two carpeted upstairs bedrooms have their own private deck access and feature the same angled, paneled ceilings with exposed beams as the living room and kitchen. A second bath has tiled floors and custom tile inlays in the shower/tub. A bonus room that could be another bedroom or office is part of the garage and has wood floors, and recessed lights.
With its elegant architectural details and upgrades, ample space to spread out inside or outdoors, and peaceful setting surrounded by trees and trails, and close to the community pool, this is a unique property.
