This expansive, upgraded traditional home curves around a beautifully landscaped lot, alternating sunny spots with the shade of majestic trees. The drought-resistant front yard has a pathway leading to a small, peaceful pavilion under the trees, with a trellis entrance and its own lighting for evening visits.

A small portico entrance frames the front door, framed by bay windows on one side and a pair of stable-style garage doors on the other, adding to the country feel. Inside, a tiled entryway shifts to refinished wood floors in the living, dining, and kitchen areas. Additional wood detail pick up the floors’ glow: a unique wood-paneled door on a wrought-iron track that closes off an elegantly refinished bathroom (one of four in the house), wooden kitchen cabinets, exposed wood beams in the living room, and a carved wooden mantel framing a brick fireplace.

In the kitchen, modern concrete counters and a slate backsplash alternate with the wood cabinets and floors and stainless steel appliances. The dining room, across a breakfast bar from the kitchen, looks out on a sunroom that forms half of an inviting deck that wraps around the back of the house, complete with painted wood plank ceiling and a matching porch railing. Steps of bricked half-circles, a pattern of concentric circles on the patio, and a tree-lined curved pathway add graceful shapes to the landscaping at the rear of the house, framed by two storage sheds for gardening tools or other storage ⎯ one in the shape of a matching barn, and a deluxe chicken coop. Another large wooden deck off an adjoining wing offers more tranquil outdoor space. Solar panels offer great electric savings.

Inside, there are five bedrooms to choose from, including a spacious master suite with hardwood floors, alcoves, a built-in armoire, vaulted ceiling, arched doorways, and an upgraded, custom-tiled bathroom that preserves the charm of original cabinetry and plantation shutters on the windows. Four other bedrooms offer many choices: hardwood floors (in two) or wall-to-wall carpeting (in the other two), deck access, built-in shelves, and two additional bathrooms (for a total of four ⎯ all with showers and two with tubs). Stained glass light fixtures, crown and chair-rail molding, wooden shutters, bay windows, arched doorways, unique tile work, and angled ceilings all add traditional touches throughout the home. In addition there is a large finished bonus room perfect for hobbies or crafts.

Located on a quiet street with low traffic, walking distance to Cabrillo and it's Farmer's Market. Inside or out, there’s no shortage of special spots from which to enjoy this lovely home that blends the best of traditional touches with modern upgrades.
