Located in the heart of the desirable Sunnybrae neighborhood, this charming home has been lovingly updated and expanded. Perfectly located midway between San Francisco and San Jose, and just minutes from commute lines, and near town center, this may be the home for you!
The newly landscaped yard beckons you to pause on the covered front porch, where a bench greets you. Opening the cheerfully-painted yellow front door delivers you into the light-filled living room boasting dark-toned wood floors, a wood-burning fireplace accented by a crisp, white mantle. Large windows at the front of the house and a sliding glass door at the back provides airiness and light to the room. The living room opens onto the formal dining room though a generously-sized pass through. Both rooms have been upgraded with recessed lighting.
The updated and sunny kitchen is bathed in natural light via a west-facing greenhouse window. Elegant, black-painted cabinets, rust-toned granite counters, and tiled floors create warmth and sophistication. Stainless appliances, stainless hardware and a stove back splash of a contemporary medley of brown-toned tiles complete the ambiance of the room.
Beyond the kitchen, a stepdown utility porch houses the laundry, (the side by side washer and dryer are conveying with the home), and a French door leads to a flagstone patio and the large, fenced side yard. This allows easy access to the kitchen and provides convenience to the Bar-B Que chef who may be grilling in the side yard.
A recent home expansion in 2016 has added an amply-sized master suite with a sitting nook and en suite bathroom featuring subway tiled shower, a quartz top vanity and Toto toilet. The roomy closet is fitted with organizers and sold core doors.
One of the two additional bedrooms houses built-in storage cabinetry and a fold down Murphy bed, (perfect for the occasional visitor). The third bedroom, currently a nursery, is nestled at the back side of the home. All three bedrooms feature hardwood floors, closets with built-in organizers and sold core doors.
Original tile, walk-in shower and cast-iron tub remain in the central bathroom, which now features an upgraded Toto toilet, and a standing vanity cabinet. This is the perfect room to exercise your design options with upgraded finishes, or allow to remain in the classic style.
The roomy side yard has also been recently landscaped to provide a natural gathering place for friends and family. A stepping stone pathway leads from the front gate to a sizeable Flagstone patio, allow room for dining, grilling, or longing. Mature citrus trees and ornamental plants accent throughout front and side yards.
The home has been lovingly cared for and maintained. Additional features include: dual paned windows throughout, newer 40-year roof, upgraded electrical, new plumbing, new landscape irrigation. Attached to the home is a single car garage with room for extra storage.
