For buyers who desire a home and garden like no other, the search is over. This 1921 California bungalow retains its original character and design. However, upon entering, it is immediately apparent that this is something special. No surface has been left untouched.

The living room features a gas insert fireplace with honed Baltimore limestone stone surfaces and custom cabinetry. The entertainment center is on the opposite wall.
The updated kitchen design reflects an artistic flair with a soaring ceiling and Velux skylights. The maple cabinetry provides a warm contrast with the darker Tunis green granite countertops. The backsplash is fusion frosted bottle glass tile. The appliances include a built-in Sub Zero refrigerator, Dacor electric stove, oven and microwave, Miele dishwasher and an instant hot water dispenser.

The upstairs bedroom has a newer remodeled bathroom with a starphire glass shower, Turkish limestone tile stone walls and floor. The vanity is a combination of custom cast glass counter top with a porcelain sink and Birdseye maple cabinetry. The Toto toilet with Washlet seat is in its own acid-etched glass enclosure. There is in-floor radiant heating, built-in maple wardrobe and cabinets with Velux skylights overhead.

The downstairs master bedroom suite has newer Andersen dual pane windows framing the beauty of the Ginko grove and bog gardens as well as the extensive tree and plant collection. The master bath features a soaking tub, Toto toilet and granite surfaces. There is radiant heating underneath the green slate floor tile throughout the master suite.

This “secret garden” has evolved over 40 years as the design and plant material has changed to reflect a variety of personal spaces for enjoying the light, space and sounds of this special place. There are multiple water features that reflect the colors of the sky, background ambiance including the sounds of the bubbling water and the chorusing frogs in the late afternoon.
