Welcome to a World Gone By. This Amazing home has retained its character even after all this time. The new parts fit-in seamlessly. It’s hard to detect what is new and old. It is a wonderful example of a Mediterranean Story Book Style home. Couldn’t you see this home perched on a hill overlooking the Sea? And, with our westerly breeze, it becomes even more real – olive oil and fresh bread anyone?

Once you’re inside it is so graceful, and there so many features that few craftspeople have the skill to create. The gum wood trim, the arched windows, the fireplace tiles, the truly amazing gumwood China Hutch – Just wonderful.

The kitchen is brand new, but retains the wonderful character of the house with a unique window and another built-in China hutch. The view is nice from the table where you can have a casual meal, or entertain a friend whilst you cook. You’ll love this kitchen, proud but no extra glitz to roll your eyes at. We have all seen those in a flipped house or two.

Down the hall and straight ahead is a brand new period styled bathroom. It may resemble the original in most categories. To the left is a spacious bedroom with a walk-in closet, and 2 extras just for good measure! On the right is the master retreat. It’s as nice as any spa-styled hotel room in the wine country and it’s reserved for you every night! Just off of the bedroom is a sunny lounge or sitting area. Maybe you have a desk here if you work from home because when you open the doors to the deck, it’s such a wonderful place: work, sunbathe, play, anything is possible In the sitting area there  are 2 big wardrobes with the most peculiar legs up front – see if you can guess what they normally hold up? The master bathroom is really worthy of a photo shoot for a magazine, and has a unique arched door and arched windows. It is brand new, but could have been there 100 years ago.

Downstairs there is a great indoor play space, laundry and the old garage. Well, the Garage isn’t the same either; extra-long, fully painted and sheet-rocked. Light floods the room from a window on one side, and the garage door with light panels on the other. I would love this garage for toy, tool, media cave, play place (adult style) art shack, office to run your business from, or?? You must have a unique use for the space.

Out to the back yard! It has just been re-landscaped and is sunny with southern and western exposure. If you add a deck off the kitchen, the access is perfect.

Lots of upgrades, big and small. Please see the ‘List of Seller Improvements’ at the property and online. This is a great house. And, Chabot Elementary is free! (well, you pay taxes, but no private schools needed here.)
