This softly colored townhome with its crisp white trim is immediately  engaging.  Very well located at 169 Saratoga Avenue in Santa Clara, it offers 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in a very spacious 1866 sf of living space.  

The travertine tile floor and a hall mirror catch the incoming light from both the upstairs view windows, and the sidelight panel of the front door, to create a pleasant welcome for all.  

The living space of this home is exceptionally well conceived.  Upon entry, one enters a perfectly balanced living room and dining room combination that is ideal for relaxed living, and can just as easily be the perfect spot for entertaining.  

Just steps inside the door, a set of stairs leads up to the three second floor bedrooms, while taking a minimum amount of downstairs floorspace.  

Another perspective reveals just one of the living experiences that this charming home offers. 

Here is a smooth integration of one space into another, a handsome and gleaming fireplace, paired view windows, softly colored wooden floors, and and an expansive sliding glass door that leads to the adjacent garden patio.  

While well integrated one to another, each room has unique features to be noted.  This dining room is spacious, and has more than enough room for a large sideboard, mirror, and an even larger set of table and chairs.  

A sliding glass door and widows capture the garden, and invite all, to this private  patio that is just steps away.

This patio is especially appealing.  The tall, TimberTech patio and overhead balcony combine with an Ipe fence to provide both quality and drama to this distinctive living space.  

This exceptional kitchen is large and a perfect site for the true home chef.  There is very generous preparation space around the room, and amenities include designer fixtures, a built in wine refrigerator, a microwave, dishwasher, and a gas range/cooktop. 

The gleaming black granite countertops harmonize perfectly with the soft wooden colors of the many levels of cabinets and drawers.    

Just off the kitchen is this charming eat in kitchen space that is perfect for a morning breakfast, an afternoon lunch, or a cup of coffee and a good book.  

A glowing floor to ceiling wall cabinet is designed in such a way to store and display favorite china, serving pieces, and best glassware.

There are three bedrooms on the second floor.  Each is large, and each has a built in closet area.  

Seen above, is the primary bedroom which is the largest of the three.  It easily accommodates a substantially sized bed, a pair of nightstands, and soft side chair. 

Certainly its most desirable feature is the private balcony just outside the tall sliding glass door that provides views of the beautifully tended trees and garden.  

The home's primary bathroom is truly stunning in its size and conception,  and includes limestone floors, a dual sink marble vanity with room wide mirror, and limestone floors.  

Certainly one of the stellar features here is this delightful bathtub which adds an especially unique charm to the space.  

A second bedroom has large dual view windows, softly colored wooden floors, and a flexible floor plan.  

As with many homes, all of the bedroom space is not needed, as is the case with this third bedroom, which has been converted into a office.  

An optional use for this room might be a music room, children's playroom, or an arts and craft room.

This splendidly designed townhome is large, private, serene, and inviting.  Please call me with your questions and interest regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,410,000.
