Slate steps lead to this 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath beautiful Craftsman-style home, just 1.5 blocks from the ocean, West Cliff and a popular surf break. It features durable and eco-friendly stranded bamboo flooring throughout the home, Hans Grohe fixtures, high ceilings, recessed lighting and Douglas Fir doors and trim. Lots of windows bring light and the outdoor gardens in. Once inside, the warm glow of the bamboo floor beckons you down the hall to the heart of the home.
The sunken living room sits across from the window-lined hallway. This comfortable room has a stained concrete floor, gas fireplace framed in wood and slate tile, and is wired for surround sound. Outside the hallway windows, a stone path winds its way through a green garden dominated by ferns and camellias.
Beyond the oversized wood-framed French doors lies the Great Room with its open and airy kitchen, dining, and living area perfect for entertaining. The kitchen features a large custom island with its own sink, gorgeous granite counters, stainless steel appliances (including gas range with a hood), distinctive glass subway tile backsplash and white beadboard cabinets. The informal dining area faces a trio of bay windows overlooking a sunny backyard and private patio full of colorful and low-maintenance landscaping, all completely on automated drip irrigation. Two sets of sliding glass doors provide access to the back and side yards.
Follow the Douglas Fir railings upstairs where all the vaulted ceiling bedrooms are found. The master suite has a spacious walk-in closet with built-in shelves, a private deck with slate tiled floor and ocean views. The master bath has cherry cabinetry, granite counters and a large soaking tub with stunning pearlescent mosaic tile backsplash. Custom tile is also used for the walls and trim of the separate glass-doored shower. Two other bedrooms feature large windows, ocean views, vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting. The luxurious guest bath has granite counters and tile floors with unique glass tile inlays.
Back to the main floor, the stairs lead you to the formal dining area with windows that bring in light but maintain privacy. A downstairs guest bath features a vessel sink, beautiful glass tile countertop and distinctive lighting. The laundry room off the hallway has tile floors, granite counters with mosaic tile details, natural light, and lots of cabinets for keeping everything neat and organized. A two-car garage with workbench, shelving, and a 12-foot ceiling provides lots of room for kayaks, bikes and surfboards. A shower outside the garage side door makes it easy to keep the sand outside.
