Graced with Mediterranean allure circa 1930, this widely remodeled Crocker Highlands home reflects a consummate combination of preservation and renovation. Original characteristics shine while the seamlessly reconfigured layout integrates a transformed master suite, professional-caliber kitchen that flows to radiant family room plus garden with deck terrace, and lower-level living space adjoining an expanded garage. The three-bedroom, two-bath plus powder room composition includes formal living and dining rooms comprising stately proportions and architectural cachet.
Floor-to-ceiling windows meet subtly coved ceilings in living and dining rooms. Rounded fanlights top those living room windows, while tall casement windows frame a regal gas fireplace. Wall speakers and floor outlets add inconspicuous functionality. The dining room’s divided-light glass doors open to a balcony with retractable awning, a cherished al fresco dining perch.
In the kitchen, an elegant aesthetic complements wall-to-wall efficiency. Extra-deep Carerra marble counters, ideal for pastry prep, meet mossy-hued subway-tile backsplashes. Flanked by windowed seating areas, a banquette forms a bright gathering spot; a garden-view alcove is well suited for a desk.
The multi-chamber master suite features a dressing room with elaborate built-ins augmented by two more closets. Endowed with a soaking tub plus glassed shower, the master bath is clad in a cream-colored tile scheme including basket-weave floor tile. Within the master bedroom, library shelves fringe a rose-garden outlook, and a desk is set in a windowed alcove.
On the lower level, two bedrooms are served by a bathroom with separate shower and toilet chambers. Storage and utility abounds: wine and laundry rooms, a garage workshop area plus storage room, ideal for recreation equipment. The home’s upgraded infrastructure incorporates a French drain system, extensive window replacements, and reconstructed chimney.
