With clean lines inspired by Swedish architecture, a gently sloping corner lot spanning three addresses, and a sizable detached cottage, this Corona Heights compound isn't something you see just every day.
Comprised of a main residence—with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths spanning three full levels—on Roosevelt Way, and a separate loft cottage around the corner on 15th Street, the 4,500-square-foot property can function as a single spacious home or it could be carved into two—a residence plus an office, a rental property, or even a workshop for your favorite hobby. However it's utilized, this is one stylish backdrop.
In the primary residence, a three-story atrium with open-riser solid oak stairs makes a sunny first impression and, happily, vaulted ceilings and towering windows maintain this bright disposition from bottom to top. Front and rear decks guarantee ample opportunities to get in your daily dose of vitamin D with views all the way to the East Bay, giving the home a greenhouse vibe.
Striking design elements and luxurious materials (radiant heated floors!) follow this act up nicely. The entry level itself could serve as home to a cozy couple, with one bedroom and a full bath; a large living area that opens onto the patio and yard; and a perfectly polished kitchen with Heath Ceramics tiles, locally produced custom cabinetry, and European white oak flooring.
But wind your way up the stairs you'll find three more bedrooms including the master suite with its own private terrace. Another flight up and you're in entertaining heaven, with a dining area and second kitchen kitted out in all Miele appliances.
Should the in-laws visit often or (gasp) want to move in, the cottage has all the European styling of the main house only in petite. The loft-like spot houses one bedroom and full bathroom, a powder room, a full kitchen (with those Heath tiles again), and laundry; not to mention its own patio and cozy radiant heat.
Basically this place is move-in ready for you and all your squad.
