Serene private location near the end of the street in this woodsy hills area. Close to a hiking trail above the canyon and Tilden Park. A curving path through the landscaped front garden takes you to the main entrance adjacent to a charming brick-paved courtyard.
At street level: large eat-in kitchen with ample storage (see the fold-out ironing board in a drawer!), workspace, views from the living room, dining area and deck, gorgeous full bath, and 2 bedrooms (one with a half bath).
The lower level is accessed by a wide winding staircase and is very well integrated with the main living space: a spacious family room full of natural light, a 3rd large bedroom with across-the-wall louvered doors to a big closet area, separate large storage space, and exit to back garden.
The garage studio/office with French doors is just across the courtyard and is easily accessed from the main house hardwood flooring, skylights, high ceiling, and laundry area with cabinetry and sink.
The water heater and furnace are newer, replaced within the past year; sewer lateral is in compliance; rooftop solar is owned by sellers; EV charger; garage parking for 1 car.
