This masterpiece of Spanish architecture stuns from the curb to the bones. This one-story home has been lovingly maintained to keep the original character and wisely updated to provide the comfort of modern amenities and flair. Original period details of this 1924 charmer include glistening hardwood floors, barrel ceilings, restored original windows and authentic hardware. The recent upgrades include a remodeled kitchen, remodeled bathrooms, a new HVAC system, tankless water, updated plumbing and electrical, restored lighting plus additional recessed lighting, security and camera system, hardwired Internet and fire system, professional landscaping, perimeter fencing and privacy wall. The living room stuns as light fills the romantic room showcasing the barrel ceilings with recessed lighting and drop pendant and moroccan fixtures, picturesque arched front window with side panels, character filled tiled wood and gas burning fireplace accented with oversized  original windows and multiple pane door which provides access to the private side patio. Original character continues to impress in the large formal dining room with its barrel ceiling with recessed lights,  mission-style iron chandelier and preserved oversized arched window and side panels. Passing through the pocket door, one can access the remodeled kitchen which is a chef’s delight with its Caesarstone countertops, Carrara marble backsplash, custom cabinetry with under cabinet lighting, 4-burner Wolf gas range, oven and matching hood with wood finishings, white Kitchen Aid dishwasher, walk in pantry and accent turquoise floor. Additional preparation and cooking space was created with butcher block countertops adjacent to the range. The LG stainless steel front load washer and dryer are conveniently located behind matching cabinets within the kitchen. A high Caesarstone countertop finishes this space while providing easy folding of your laundry. Walking down the hallway, one has access to all three bedrooms. The first bedroom off the hallway is versatile in use as it features recessed lighting, hardwood floors, built-in bookcases with period-like sconces , original panel windows and  doors with access to the east patio. Pull on one bookcase and you are granted access to the hidden closet.
