Monterey Heights Spectacular English Tudor View Home!
This prominent English Tudor view home built in 1928, designed by renowned architect Harold Stoner is proudly situated on nearly 1/4 acre in prestigious Monterey Heights! The inviting garden entrance and stone staircase lead to a remarkable park-like setting with impressive terrace and arched doorway and into a wonderful double foyer with stained glass window, handsome display shelf and convenient coat closet. The magnificent sunken formal living room with vaulted hand-hewn open-beam ceiling boasts an imposing wood-burning fireplace with original fireplace screen and andirons, a giant casement picture window with sweeping southerly views, period wrought-iron wall sconces and classic random plank hardwood floors. The step-up banquet-size formal dining room with majestic double doors and stunning chandelier is perfect for entertaining! The recently updated, light-filled gourmet kitchen with maid's door and separate breakfast room showcases all stainless-steel appliances including an Italian Bertazzoni gas range and dishwasher, Carrara quartz counters and custom cabinets. A large laundry room with utility sink and nice powder room end this floor.
The dramatic staircase with arched "look-out" alcove above the living room ascends to the upper level, spacious landing, two linen closets and the home's private living quarters. The grand master bedroom with picturesque outlooks features two large walk-in closets and a big sitting room/home office. Two additional good-size bedrooms, a huge attic playroom and a delightful "vintage" bath with pedestal sink and separate shower and tub end this floor.
The lower level includes a 4th bedroom/family room with private entrance, a second full bath, storage area and huge two car side-by-side parking garage. The amazing, enormous, park-like landscaped backyard with mature trees, walking paths, terraced garden and expansive patio completes this truly special home!
