Filled with charm and vintage character, this lovely custom-built home is ready to enjoy today or remodel into your own personal vision. Built in 1943, the home was constructed with generous use of solid wood, including doors and cabinetry that were measured and cut on-site as well as the hardwood floors.
The classic and timeless design begins with a welcoming brick staircase, trimmed with wrought-iron railings and bordered by manicured foliage, leading to the covered front porch. Hardwood floors begin in the entry and continue throughout most rooms along with freshly painted interiors. Enchanting of-the-era details include a telephone niche, sconce lighting, vintage tiles, and custom-cut cabinetry and doors that recall the home’s early heritage.
The formal living room has a focal-point fireplace and to-the-floor picture window with operable side lights that open to a front balconette for fresh air and ample natural light. A wide archway leads to the elegant formal dining room with a multi-sphere chandelier for a contemporary touch. Adjacent to the dining room is the vintage kitchen, which is extra spacious and has newer wood-like vinyl floors and freshly painted white solid wood cabinets with updated hardware. The counters and full-height backsplash are finished in classic tiles, also used to fill a partial wall that defines a backdrop for a casual dining area.
There are three sun-drenched bedrooms, one with a walk-in closet, all with wood paneling in the closets, and all with crown molding and ceiling light. Serving the bedrooms is a hallway bathroom with newer wood-like vinyl flooring, refinished crisp white tiles, a tub, and a glass-enclosed shower. Completing the home, and just off the kitchen, is the expansive lower-level garage and custom wood-paneled and carpeted bonus space perfect for hobbies, today’s home office, or a recreation room. There is also a convenient bonus half-bath, built-in storage space, and a utility sink. Rooted with vintage character in a great neighborhood, this home is just minutes from shopping, dining, BART, and Caltrain.
