One owner, 2864 sq ft, Mid Century Modern home, custom built in 1964. Large
7,250 sq ft, 58' x 125'; R2 zoned lot.

This bright & sunny West Coast Modern home has been lovingly cared for by its
original owner/builder. The spacious living and dining room areas have floor-to-
ceiling windows looking out over a large 355 sq ft west-facing deck, perfect for
those evening sunsets. With exposed beams and Hemlock tongue & groove
ceilings you have the perfect entertaining space, topped off with a wood burning
fireplace. An updated Kitchen with maple cabinetry and large island with
breakfast bar seating is a chef's dream with lots of space. An updated master
bathroom ensuite and updated 2nd bathroom with double-sinks complete the 3
bedroom, 1 1/2 bathroom main floor. The lower level consists of a second full
kitchen, full bathroom and new laminate flooring throughout the lower level and
a large 2nd living room leading out through French Doors to a 450 sq ft patio (355
sq of which is covered).

With a possible 1 to 3 Bdrm / 1 bath suite, w/ laundry and separate entrance on
the lower level OR as a larger 5-6 bedroom 2 1/2 bath home for 1 family, this is a
unique opportunity that doesn't come on the market very often.  The back
yard has lots of room for a swimming pool, trampoline, fire pit, or additional, on-
property, secure-parking.  A large fig tree, large garden area, 2-car garage with
220v power for the DIY'er and paved rear-lane access complete this wonderful

A few details of the updates completed in 2014: alarm system (upstairs and
downstairs combined for one home or split for a suite), Wired/plumbed for
AC/Heat-Pump, new water line/new sewer line from house to the property line,
new front sidewalk, new laundry room cabinets/counters/double-sink. In-wall
speaker system in upstairs living room. Upgraded Cat 5 & Coax wiring throughout

This home is a truly special opportunity!
