This Spanish architectural home, built in 1923, has been tastefully remodeled with modern touches that aim to please. Enter the sun-drenched living room with three large arched windows facing the front garden and cozy up to the gas log fireplace. The open floor plan immediately takes you through the dining room into the oversized chef's kitchen with honed Carrera marble counters and a statement vintage center-island bar. The large pass-through to the back deck and garden has a built-in desk, double closets, and a washer and dryer neatly tucked under cabinetry. Hardwood floors, custom window treatments, and a remarkable amount of closet space are offered in all three bedrooms. Two bathrooms have been tastefully remodeled in keeping with the kitchen design and Spanish architecture. Both the primary bedroom and utility area off the kitchen leads out to the rear garden through a French door. The back deck is the perfect space for outdoor dinners and the garden offers an additional peaceful setting amongst lush, tropical landscaping. The two-car detached garage or possible future ADU offers great additional space. The long driveway with stamped concrete offers bountiful off-street parking both in front and behind a gate. Located just north of Melrose, there are so many great shops and restaurants to be enjoyed, yet one feels tucked away in their own private paradise. It's a perfect balance after all.
