Quiet beauty is the vibe at this four-bedroom Victorian home, built in 1885, where subtle yet impactful details inside seem to mimic the peaceful atmosphere outside at Alta Plaza Park, just across the street.
Light-filled with tall doors, graceful alcoves, and ample built-ins for displaying pretty objets, the home is stylish with contemporary finishes and playful pops of color yet manages to maintain a timeless appeal.
The classic Victorian design opens to a narrow foyer with a double parlor at left. The living room is small but quaint with squared bay windows and a brick fireplace, made chic with glossy blue paint. Through and archway, the adjacent dining room has a wall of floor-to-ceiling shelves and a pair of French doors that open to a covered atrium.
The eat-in kitchen feels right for fun gatherings with friends and family thanks to mauve painted cabinetry, butcher block countertops, and a cherry red Bertazzoni range. Just behind the kitchen is a bedroom (or office) with a half bathroom and access to the atrium and rear deck and garden.
Up the stairs, take in the stained glass skylight before entering the private quarters. At front of the home, the primary suite is tranquil and elegant with a carved niche for the bed, a fireplace with a marble mantel, an en-suite bathroom, and a view of the park. Two additional bedrooms round out this floor, which share access to a full bathroom in the hall.
The lower level houses a laundry room as well as a bonus room with a full bathroom. There's also access to the one-car garage, and additional parking in the driveway.
Size: 2,500 sq. ft.
Asking price: $3,495,000
