This romantic cottage, built in 1950, is set on a serene, mature garden site in a quiet neighborhood close to the Foothills. In near-original condition, it has been in the same family for over 60 years. The classic floor plan flows seamlessly and features three spacious bedrooms, one full bath, formal living room and dining room, plus a custom ranch-style kitchen. Period details — hardwood floors, solid wood paneling, beamed ceiling, French doors, two fireplaces, plaster walls and multi-paned windows — exemplify the high-quality construction of a bygone era. Other amenities include a separate laundry room, abundant storage, fresh interior paint and detached double garage. The back porch steps down to a brick patio and vintage pergola, where pathways then wander under and among the myriad of fruit trees, camellias, roses and other flowering plants. This garden, with roots in the 19th Century, is both beautiful and functional: areas of deep cooling shade contrast with sunny spots ideal for seasonal harvests. The imprint of generations of caretakers is readily apparent.
Here is a rare and enchanting opportunity for true California Living in an exceptional setting.
