In the Marengo area, this estate home sits just above Huntington Drive, on one of the best streets in the city. A large covered porch welcomes you inside to a grand living room that spans the width of the house. The room features boxed-beamed ceilings, wide crown moldings, original built-ins, and a wood burning fireplace. A cozy den and a sitting area framed by leaded glass windows (maintained by Judson Studios) on all sides sit adjacent. The formal dining room, with a built-in window seat, is large enough to host all of your loved ones. Downstairs there is a large bedroom, and a 3/4 guest bathroom with beautiful stained-glass windows. The spacious kitchen has an abundance of storage and a quaint office tucked away to the side. The large laundry room leads outside to a wood deck, fabulous backyard and side yard. Up the wide staircase, you will find four bedrooms, each with high ceilings, in addition to a bonus room that could be used either as a 5th bedroom or perhaps as an upstairs office. Two of the bedrooms are connected by a balcony overlooking the neighborhood--this could be an ideal primary suite with 2 walk-in closets. The main bathroom has a pedestal sink and clawfoot tub still intact. There is also 1/2 bathroom on the second floor. A detached artist's cottage with a 3/4 bathroom and kitchenette is adjoined to the garage structure. The property is on a double wide lot and has a brick patio, wood deck, and plenty of driveway parking. Additional features include: central heat & air, braced foundation, pocket doors, hardwood floors, balcony, large California basement, automatic sprinklers (front and back), partially updated electrical and plumbing, and a large attic. Owned by the same family for 50 years, this magnificent Craftsman house has been truly loved, and could be yours to love next.
