SOLD $1,275,000 - Single Family Home
Every once in a while, time gets out its feather duster and goes to work. The result is inevitably a better and brighter original.
Not much has changed about this extraordinary property, at least when it comes to the important things, the bones of this 1932 AB Harmar design, the 1.4+ acres, the location and the views. What has changed is its loving transformation into a 3-bedroom ensuite, with 2 powder rooms, that is very much in touch with a 21st century lifestyle.
The living and dining rooms exist in tandem to give the term ‘great room’ new meaning. Soaring beamed ceilings unite the two areas. Equally inviting for more cerebral pleasures is the library made comfortable and intimate by its fireplace and built-in bookcases. There are many who believe that the heart of a home always has been, always will be, the kitchen. If that’s so, this one has been designed to accommodate that definition. A spacious master suite features a corner fireplace and a secluded terrace from which to enjoy the Pacific’s fabled sunsets. A nice way to end a day in a space appointed and reserved for the most private of interludes.
The detached 1,800 sq ft space boasts a media/screening room on one level with an office and media library on another. By description alone, the accompanying 2,000-bottle-capacity wine cellar is the kind of structure that a property of this distinction should have.
For those times when reflective solitude is accomplished by a walk on the beach, there is a little road that takes you there, a private beach, just for the peace of it. When you get there, you know that time pretty much knows that some things are better left alone.
