Immediately adjacent to the living room is this very spacious dining room anchored by a warm and welcoming fireplace.  What a perfect location for entertaining friends while enjoying the views of the backyard and Bay area.   This is an excellent view of the handsome hardwood floors in the home.

It is often said that the heart of the home is its kitchen.  That is certainly true here.  Just steps away from the dining area, this attractive kitchen has has been updated to add to its appeal.

There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  Two of each are being shown for your consideration.  Immediately below, is the master bedroom.  This is a very comfortable room that features warmth and quality at every turn.  The attractive widows allow cheerful light and desirable outdoor views of trees and city scenery.   The appealing wall to wall carpeting and crown and floor moulding completes the picture.  

Adjacent to the master bedroom is this dramatic and beautifully detailed, master bathroom.  The colorfully tiled tub with water jets is just perfect for relaxation at the end of a long day.  Dual sinks, brightly updated lighting fixtures and roomy storage below makes this an ideal space.   


Equally attractive, the second bedroom continues the theme of warmth and charm, providing quality throughout.

The second bathroom is as impressive as the first.  The light from the matching overhead fixtures is reflected in the paired mirrors that meet the needs of  users of these beautiful dual sinks.  Additional appeal comes from the attractive trims above and below the sinks.  

Every house can benefit from the addition of a spacious family room that allows for multiple uses, and will be perfect for entertaining.  Such is the case here.  However, there could be many other options as to the room's use- a library or office space are two considerations.  Whatever the choice, residents can  enjoy looking out over the spacious grounds and well planned gardens.

The room is currently configured to allow seating at the sofa in front of a large entertainment system, but flexibility abounds here.  Two very large doors invite guests outside into the patio and gardens.  

Upon stepping into the backyard, it becomes clear to any visitor that there is a spacious comfort just outside the back doors.  

There is a soothing fountain, a multi-level paver patio, winding pathways, a vegetable garden and imaginative landscaping throughout.  A fenced backyard, and multiple well established plants and trees, insure a quiet afternoon or evening when entertaining or relaxing.

One special surprise awaits just adjacent to this food island--a fully functioning putting green for the home golfer hoping to improve his or her game.
