It doesn't get much more storybook than this 1931 Tudor-style home situated among old growth cypress trees across from the 70-acre Glen Canyon Park.
Outdoorsy types will enjoy breaths of fresh air in the backyard where leafy surrounds promise privacy for hot tubbing, while lovers of all things vintage will feel their hearts flutter at the sight of the brightly tiled kitchen and baths.
Large windows and skylights serve to flaunt the abundance of garden space and wooded setting, but the three-story home's interior period details are equally enchanting.
Past the entry alcove, the main level has an open floor plan with a hand-hammered open beam 15-foot ceiling, wood burning stone fireplace, floor-to-ceiling multi-paned leaded front window, and wide plank hardwood floors. French doors alongside the fireplace in the living area open up to a courtyard and terraced backyard with a fire pit and quaint wooden shed for storage or even a small studio.
The kitchen promises a touch of whimsy with its aqua-hued sink, scalloped wall trim, and a quirky pantry with a built-in clock. An island in the center provides extra counter space and storage. There is also one bedroom and bathroom, with the original coved ceiling over the tub, on this floor.
Take the spiral staircase to access the lower level with two more bedrooms and a second full bath with a funky tiled shower. On the top floor, a fourth bedroom and loft overlook the yard through a series of geometrically shaped windows. A range of skylights overhead flood the space with natural light.
