  Located in the luxurious Alum Rock Hills this home sits upon a double lot of 20,000 square feet terraced with beautiful landscaping and native plants. Close to Alum Rock Park and Mount Hamilton this wonderful home has multiple playgrounds for the exercise enthusiast, outdoor adventurist, and nature lover. Turning into the long driveway, you recognize the privacy that comes from an off-the-street entrance. The brilliant birds-of-paradise and warm exterior color draws you into iron gate entrance. Anticipating the views, the heather bordered brick steps lead you upward to the extensive colonnade. You notice the large paned windows and immediately see the reflection of setting sun in the glass. You turn to capture the full realization of the Western sky and mountain range. Entering the home, the hallway pulls you into the living room where you pause again to turn and see the complete floor to ceiling view. Off the living room, a fountain trickling catches your ear and leads you to a back patio perfect for early morning coffee. Back inside, the large open space of living room and formal dining room are situated perfectly for family and guest. Entering the kitchen, natural light and open breakfast nook, offer comfortable setting accented by the welcome quick flutter of multiple hummingbirds ready to share this home with you. Exiting out the side of the home, you are greeted with your place to relax, enjoy with a few friends; or several dozen friends. A large red brick patio with a unique herringbone inlay creates the perfect outside living room. This amazing patio is complete with a gas fireplace, soothing fountain, and a large custom canopy umbrella protecting comfortable lounges and chairs. Of course, take a seat, and admire the setting sun for a bit before seeing more. Back inside you will find a small guest room or office off the kitchen with a dedicated half bath. Providing a separate entrance this room can be perfect for guest or a private entry office from Highland Drive. Further down the main hallway, you find a second bedroom. Throughout the home, hardwood floors and rounded ceilings show off the character and charm of this original 1949 home. The full bath in the hall has been ideally updated with a Kohler Veil, Mono Basin Tap, mounted vanity with floor lighting, all set against a lovely horizontal grey weaved ceramic tile. The large master bedroom, located on the NorthWest end of this “L” shaped home, provides perfect views of treetops, the yard and hills. The completely updated master bath is designed with a two sink mounted vanity, and dual head rain shower. A walk-in closet with organizers provides a perfect vanity for his and hers. Off the master bedroom, the perfect touch balcony with a sparkling, bubbling hot tub and, yes, another beautiful view of the valley and mountains. Bring your glass, your stress, and let it gently ease away with the sunset. This home offers you more than shelter from the day-to-day world; it offers an oasis you will want to call home
