Welcome Beautiful single-story home on .32-acre terraced garden lot, with cul-de-sac location in Olde La Costa. Thoughtfully designed floor plan, featuring hardwood flooring and oversized windows that flood each room with natural light. Huge glass doors connect virtually all living spaces with patios and porches, bringing indoor/outdoor living to an authentic North County lifestyle.
Welcome to this warm, inviting, single-story, family-style residence. Here you will find an open kitchen, centered in the heart of the home, overlooking a large family room, which itself overlooks an expansive backyard.
The length of the family room runs parallel to the yard, optimizing views of the patio and terraced garden beyond. Large French doors and vertical transom “sidelite” windows bring forth the natural beauty that frames the yard. The family room is currently configured as a dining room, which supports a love of cooking and entertaining, and which could easily instead fit large couches, TV’s, and side tables comfortably.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a cozy sitting area, perfect for reading books or sharing a glass of wine with friends. Behind the kitchen sits a spacious living room, and another area configured with built-in office furniture (and which is large enough to alternatively serve as a formal dining room).
All three bedrooms share a hallway, in typical “ranch” style layout; i.e. master bedroom with en suite bathroom, two additional bedrooms, and a hall bathroom. The master is also outfitted with a large glass door, leading to another spacious patio and lush green grass beyond.
The attached 2-car garage has served the Seller well, as a highly functional, nicely organized, and ventilated space for woodworking, hobbies, crafts, and mechanics.
This home has been lovingly maintained with pride of ownership. As a few examples, the seemingly standard-issue screen door is fortified with extremely tough wire mesh, sufficient to leave locked on warm evenings while the main front door is left ajar. Heavy wooden, dual- front doors were personally hand-carved by the Seller with simple, yet beautiful designs. Same for the elegantly hand-carved wooden barn-door, hung at the master bathroom. In fact, the Seller installed hand-crafted, custom cabinetry throughout the home. Other examples include the well-insulated attic, with whole house commercial grade fan, and dual attic fans.
If you love a fun, peaceful, private backyard, well-aligned with the length of an indoor/outdoor style home, then you will want to see this one.
Shortly after taking ownership, the Seller excavated the inclined space with exceptionally durable retaining walls, terracing ideal rows for a gardener’s paradise. Stone and block construction, drip irrigation, great exposure… the only limitation will be your thumb’s shade of green.
Overflowing with natural beauty, the walls set back the gardens to frame two spacious patios, plus a lawn large enough to enjoy, but modest enough to maintain. Several other sitting nooks take advantage of the sun’s changing position.
This yard is perfect for entertaining, gardening, or just relaxing. Loads of guest can fit comfortably, and gorgeous sunsets can be viewed from mid-point on the hill. Wildlife will sometimes stroll by, and the bird watching is great (especially hummingbirds). The lush mature landscaping presents an assortment of citrus, fruit, and nut trees along with an array of savory herbs, ranging from rosemary to French tarragon and everything in between.
Some of the tree species and herbs include: Black Mission Fig, Brown Turkey Fig, Orange, Western Pecan (on the hill); White Peach, Seedless Lime, Eureka Lemon (west side of backyard); Persian Lime (in the wine barrel). Abundant herbs available year-round for all kinds of recipes – rosemary, basil, marjoram, oregano, lavender, bay leaf, thyme, lemon thyme, sage, dill, chives, Italian parsley, French tarragon.
Wide side yards also border the home, adding to garden space and storage. One side has an RV pad particularly wide and long enough to store a large motorhome and extra automotive toys.
When seeking extra summertime shade, the covered front porch provides another comfortable sitting area. Here you can overlook the lovely cul-de-sac, wave to friendly neighbors, or join the occasional co-hosted “Happy Hour”. (No HOA or Mello Roos!)
