One would never imagine that this jewel was hidden here! The front of the home is simple and unassuming. It opens up into a lovely corridor, that then opens up into an airy vestibule/foyer, where directly outside, one can see a hint of the grandeur of the backyard. From the foyer the home spreads into a split floor plan with an abundance of space and privacy. Immediately off of the foyer is a up-to-date bathroom with a unique yet classic step-in shower. To the left is a lovely vintage kitchen, modified with the amenities of now. Attached to the kitchen, a formal dining area that boasts elegance and an antiquarian appeal. Off of the dining area is a well-appointed bathroom which houses a vintage clawfoot tub; this attaches to a comfy bedroom. One would almost think the other side of the home was a separate quarters. From the foyer, through a large doorway and with a step down, there is a sitting area graced with a couch, chairs, a desk, and a flat-screen tv. This room then splits--to one side is a huge, heavy-duty, double door that leads into another bedroom, overlooking the street. To the other side, though another set of doors, is a large area, furnished with chairs, a decorative fountain, a daybed and a Murphy bed. Behind the Murphy bed, through a corridor, there is a step up into a gorgeous, well-appointed bathroom with an overhead, rainfall shower that looks out over the serene back yard. The home is thoroughly, yet tastefully decorated with hints of history throughout. To say the least, the back yard is an oasis, filled with natural growth of desert landscape, as well as colorful hints of annuals and perennials. Stepping outside from the house, the fountain is welcoming and soothing. The yard is well-appointed, not overdone, not barren. The pool sits just off of the outside sitting area. It is perfectly situated in the backyard so that the sun dances on the water at the right times. The home is close and conveniently located to everything, but due to it's impeccable privacy and charm, a guest would not know it. Do not hesitate--stay here.
