Description :

Relaxing comes easy when surrounded by tranquil gardens showing bursts of color amid

a sea of emerald green grass.  Developed and maintained by an avid gardener, these lovely gardens surround a traditional ranch style home that has been nicely expanded and tastefully updated.


A walkway lined with roses leading to a covered entry invites you into the stylish living room of this single-level home. Plantation shutters, crown molding, recessed lighting, wainscoting and built in bookshelves enhance the large living/dining areas.


Sunlight streams from a large skylight into the cheerful kitchen. Features include maple counter tops, two ovens, a gas cook-top, double sink, dishwasher, recessed lights and modern Wilsonart (Harvest Oak) flooring.


The four bedrooms are all uniquely appointed. One serves as a library/movie room.  One serves as a guest room (with a view of roses). The third bedroom (of generous proportions), serves as a home-office/family room with French door and window to the rear patio (desk unit and bookcases included).  Opening to the garden is a spacious master suite with two closets, ceiling fan, French door and window to the patio and a gracious bathroom featuring a long vanity with two sinks, skylight, tiled shower over a tub and a tiled floor. The hall bathroom with a tiled vanity has a tiled shower over the tub, a tiled floor, skylight and tall linen closet.


A live oak and a fruiting plum tree highlight the rear of the backyard. Beautifully manicured lawns are enhanced by splashes of color from many different types of plants and flowers, including climbing iceberg roses, dogwood, pittosporum, iris, azaleas, clematis, rhododendrons, Japanese maple, hydrangeas and agapanthus. Tomatoes are already planted in the raised vegetable bed. Lemons from a Meyer lemon bush are great for lemonade or sorbet!
