This Corralitos two-story, two-bedroom, two-bath home is nestled in a sunny clearing, surrounded by a forest of trees visible from every room through windows, skylights, decks, and patios. The tiled living, dining, and kitchen areas downstairs flow around a raised wood-burning stove with a matching tile hearth in the middle of the open space, with large windows looking out on a large deck and the trees beyond.
The kitchen and dining area, like the living room, has recessed lights and tiled floors. Oak cabinets alternate with more windows, and a tiled counter includes a breakfast bar between the kitchen and dining area. In addition to a screened porch, the back of the house includes a peaceful outdoor dining/entertaining area, as well as built-in benches set off from the house and facing the forest’s natural peace and quiet. The tiled master suite downstairs looks out on the forest through a large window and opens to the back patio through a French door. The master bath includes a combined shower/tub, tiled counter, and wood cabinets.
Upstairs, a sitting area with hardwood floors, a vaulted ceiling, ceiling fan, and porthole window opens to a smaller entertainment center. The upstairs entertainment center has French doors to its own deck; the same oak cabinets, tiled counters, and recessed lights as downstairs and includes a refrigerator. A second bedroom upstairs features hardwood floors, a large closet with mirrored doors, and French doors to a private deck, parallel to the one off the upstairs entertainment center. An outdoor shed with laundry and storage space completes the layout.
Adjacent to the trails, canyons, and tree lines of the hundreds of protected acres of the Byrne-Milliron forest, this secluded spot is a haven from the hustle and bustle of modern life, but still enough to Highway 1 to make shopping and commuting to work or school a short, scenic trip out of the woods.
