Urban Living Minutes to Downtown

Authentic midcentury design incorporates modern day luxury in this well-appointed, attached single-family home just minutes to downtown. Signature styling begins with the linear façade and continues inside to the dramatic two-story living room with entire wall of glass opening to a large and private garden terrace. A chef’s kitchen and accompanying butler’s pantry are appointed in marble and hand-hewn teak wood floors unify the main living spaces. The upper-level, also accessible by elevator, features two spacious bedroom suites each lined with a wall of windows. Further embracing the California spirit in which the home was designed, additional outdoor venues for relaxation include two balconies plus the community’s sun-swept pool.
