Close to everything

Meet your friends for dinner at Chez Zee, treat yourself to yogurt at Berry Austin, pop into Peony next door for Chinese take-out, pick up some pastries at Russell’s Bakery, grab a coffee at Starbucks, shop for groceries at Randall’s, or stretch your legs at Perry Park.  You are no more than a 5 minute walk from any of these local attractions and more.

Serene and private

And while this home is close to it all, it feels like an urban hideaway.  Tucked back from the road in a secluded community, eight residential buildings are nestled on 4.245 acres dotted with heritage oak trees.  Each building faces inward on a central oak grove dotted with park benches centered around a junior-sized Olympic swimming pool.   The manicured grounds also include substantial open green space for exercising your pets.  Entertain friends by the pool or read a book under the majestic oak trees while you listen to the birds.  It’s all within reach.

This beautifully remodeled condo is nestled among heritage oak trees.

Sophisticated and modern aesthetic

Superbly remodeled to reflect a modern aesthetic, no detail was overlooked during the recent renovation of the home.   The bright kitchen and dining space is adorned with espresso cabinets.  In addition to offering plenty of storage, a mix of glass front cabinets also provide a beautiful space to showcase stemware, china, or treasured objects.  Patterned tile decorates the walls from countertop to ceiling, adding a big dose of personality and a sophisticated vibe.  Stainless steel appliances, light fixtures, and hardware add subtle shine while crisp white LG Viaterra countertops add contrast to the room.
