Just renovated, this authentic Monterey Revival impresses at every turn. The current owners have put special thought and care into every choice made in the home. Surrounded by colorful landscaping and an expansive manicured lawn, you will feel at home immediately as you step inside. As you enter, the formal living room features an inviting fireplace and large windows. Beyond that is a cozy den where you can read and collect your thoughts. A 1/2 guest bath is en route to the kitchen and dining area, which have been reimagined to honor the original character and charm of the home, creating an open and bright space. Additionally, there is a homey breakfast nook, complete with fine cabinetry and top-of-the-line Bertazzoni appliances. Leading directly off the kitchen is a charming outdoor dining and barbecue area to enjoy meals al fresco. Just adjacent to the kitchen is a lovely guest bedroom with a sweetly renovated en-suite bathroom.
