Property Description

A nod to nostalgia encourages a new generation of memories in this home that has been in the same family for nearly 100 years. If walls could talk, the unaltered charm and preserved character is the tenor recalling the happiness of decades nurtured within their warmth. Built in 1916, the Dutch colonial exterior is a standout in this neighborhood of historic homes. The semi-circular portico is gently embraced by the angled symmetry of the architecture. The interior is full of Craftsman details. Upon entry, you are greeted by a Maybeck-inspired fireplace. The fireplace is flanked by redwood benches, rich wainscotting, and original hammered sconces. The original dining room is entered through glass multi-paned doors and adorned with bespoke built-ins including glass-front cabinets, matching leaded glass bay windows, and ample redwood buffet cabinet and drawers. The kitchen is a true time capsule outfitted with the original built-in dinette seating, Wedgewood stove, & California cooler.
