This 3-bedroom, 2-bath split-level home sits atop a hillside acre, surrounded by treetops and sunshine. Inside, a cozy feeling is evoked by custom warm wood paneling in a spacious living room, with exposed beams, a dramatic angled ceiling, and a brick-lined fireplace, surrounded by built-in seating. Two levels of windows plus sliding doors to a wrap-around deck let the outdoor views in from every angle. The expansive new deck & front patio offer many options for seating areas, container gardening, and entertaining, all overlooking the mature trees that surround the property and offer natural privacy. The home with a low maintenance, drought tolerant landscape is located one minute from the heart of Corralitos near organic farmlands, on a quiet road and features a convenient pull-through driveway.
Across from the living room is an updated open kitchen/dining area, with wood floors and deck access through the dining room’s sliding glass doors. The kitchen is brightly lit, has a new glass tile backsplash, and tongue-and-groove paneled cabinets with nickel trim. There is a quartz countertop with new stainless appliances and a double sink, with a breakfast bar connecting to the dining room. The laundry room has built-in shelves and cabinets as well as storage space. Across the hall is a room with more built-in shelves to provide ample storage.
The carpeted master bedroom features custom wood paneling, exposed beams, and angled ceiling as the living room, with sliding doors to a private deck with views of Merk Lake and valleys. There are two large walk-in closets in the master bedroom and a large upstairs hallway closet as well. The master bath includes a tiled tub/shower, tile floor, built-in cabinets, and double sinks. A second carpeted bedroom has exposed beams, angled ceiling, and spacious closet complete the layout. Downstairs a third carpeted bedroom is adjacent to the second bath with dual sinks and tiled tub/shower. The carpeted, wood-paneled family room with built-in seating, several storage closets, and exterior door and deck access, could be a cozy den, or office.
The custom wood paneling, built-ins, brick fireplace, plentiful windows, and wrap-around decks all work together to make this home feel spacious and cozy at the same time. The home features a three-zone energy efficient radiant hot water heating system. Through every window and at every level of the home or deck, a canopy of treetops offers lush greenery and privacy, while letting the sun shine on this unique and peaceful spot.
