Lovely vintage bungalow perched on quiet street with gorgeous sunset views. Enjoy the shops, dining, breweries, yoga, and neighborhood events of the nearby Laurel District, or hike in Redwood Regional Park, swim at Mills College. This home is well situated for culture, but also easy to lock and go for travel.
A charming succulent border graces the front garden and highlights the beautifully paned front windows, original to the home. Enter into the open-plan living room/kitchen with tiled wood-burning fireplace and built-in shelving, warm oak floors, tons of light. The kitchen’s cream cabinets, stainless appliances, modern glass tile backsplash, and retro-inspired quartz countertops are a dream. A cute kitchen door to the morning glory-covered sideyard complete the bungalow feel.
Down the hallway lie three good-sized bedrooms, one of which could be a home office. The master has its own updated full bath while the other two rooms share a second full bath, with cherry cabinetry and new counters, tile, and lighting. Lots of closet space and lots of windows—the best views being from the back bedrooms overlooking the garden and its enormous redwood tree. To lie in bed and have that view is magical. Also in the garden, spy a darling chicken coop with red shutters, a paved patio, and a bonus guest trailer/work space. Sunset magazine eat your heart out.
