Built in 1921 by the late owner's father, this 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath home oozes vintage charm from the glass door knobs, to the beautiful wainscoting and molding to the high ceilings, hardwood floors and big front porch.  Although the house has been updated over the years, the vintage charm remains and the pride of ownership is evident.

There are big picture windows throughout, all dual paned.  The living room has a wood burning fireplace and is adjacent to the dining room. The dining room opens to a sun room through French doors with morning sun streaming in and views of the garden and Picnic Valley.  The good size eat-in kitchen is cheerful with lots of light and windows with a sliding glass door that opens to a deck for dining.  

Sitting up high on a raised foundation, near the back of the lot, this home offers privacy, views and an expansive garden. When you enter the gate you're greeted to the smell of citrus trees, lovingly tended roses, lilac bushes, camellias, a big lavendar Rhodie and a stately palm tree that anchors the yard.  There's a greenhouse for the serious gardener.  A 2-car garage is located next to the garden gate. 

 

If you would like more information, contact Janis Peterson at 415-271-3109 or Janis@MarinModern.com.  This home will be coming on the market around May 22nd.
