Imbued with the colors and charm of southern Italy, this immaculate Westwood Park bungalow marries classic California Arts-and-Crafts style with the distinctive sensibility of its European owners.
Prepare to be seduced by this home’s sunny orientation, generous open plan, spacious renovated kitchen, vibrant color scheme, and large, landscaped backyard!
This adorable detached bungalow offers an inviting 2 bedroom layout with 3rd bonus room down that works nicely as an office or workshop. The spacious kitchen, renovated with Italian ceramic floors, is completely open in its connection to the dining and living rooms, offering a generous sense of volume and great flow whether for regular family routines or for entertaining.
This is a well insulated home with double paned windows, and a cosy gas burning fireplace for winter nights. Classic historical details include coved ceilings, picture rails and exterior carved eaves that go all the way around the house. There is one full bath with shower over tub and one half-bath for guests. The entrance foyer is especially spacious, offering a nice opportunity to greet your guests and take their coats. The kitchen opens via sliding doors to an intimate sheltered porch and leads on to a large, beautifully landscaped rear yard. The yard features high quality, non-toxic synthetic turf beautifully installed within decorative textured concrete and tile borders that curve around the back of the house. The yard is relatively large for Westwood Park and can accommodate a larger-sized gathering, a game of soccer or a bbq. It is more accessible to the kitchen than the majority of homes in Westwood Park and is really one of the home’s very special highlights.
There is a garage for 2 cars with plenty of room for storage at the back and on one side. There is also enough space for a 3rd car in the driveway.
This home sits near several parks at either end of Faxon Ave and is just one block from Ocean Ave, where you will find coffee shops, great restaurants, a branch of Whole Foods, a gastro-pub, a modern renovated public library and fantastic MUNI connections that will take you either to BART or directly to downtown. The onramp for 280 is just 2 minutes away so commuting to work or the airport is a breeze.
This is an especially well-located home with everything you are seeking – a practical and generous floorplan, a sweet neighborhood known for its rich architectural heritage, a sense of local community, proximity to transit and services, and plenty of accessible and beautifully-landscaped outdoor space!
