Designer Elegance in the Sought-After Easton Addition

Originally built in 1922 and updated in 2005, this lovely home in the Easton Addition neighborhood is filled with relaxed refinement and designer touches, and is just minutes from local parks, award-winning schools, and downtown amenities. The graceful single-level layout features finely crafted architectural details and sizeable, everyday spaces suitable for elegant entertaining and casual living alike.

Large windows imbue the home with natural light and offer lovely views of the tree-lined, picturesque neighborhood. A focal-point fireplace in the living room is a wonderful place to gather with friends and family. Meals on any scale are a pleasure to prepare in the beautiful stone-finished gourmet kitchen with crisp white cabinets, top-quality appliances, and easy access to the formal dining venue. Personal accommodations are comprised of 4 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, with the bedrooms privately located in a separate wing of the home. The master bedroom has a fabulous walk-in closet and expansive picture window with custom blinds, a second bedroom overlooks the rear yard, and a third bedroom has a window overlooking the side yard. A fourth bedroom with built-in armoire storage would also be ideal as “remote-tech” office space. Servicing the bedroom wing is a hallway bathroom with vintage tile work and soaking tub. Completing this excellent mid-Peninsula property is a beautifully landscaped rear yard with lush lawn and elevated wood deck for barbecues. A superb place to call home!
