Surrounded by century old homes and towering camphor trees, this warm and inviting property sits on a special street in the ever-popular Marengo neighborhood.


Built in 1909 at the height of the Arts & Crafts movement, the owners of this impeccable property have lovingly spent the last two decades restoring and updating while maintaining its architectural integrity, charm and character.  


The original front door opens to a warm and welcoming home filled with coveted Arts & Crafts details. The formal living and dining room feature original old-growth Douglas fir moldings, beams and wainscoting, brick fireplace with a handsome wood mantle, charming built-ins, gleaming hardwood floors and multi-pane casement windows.  Seamlessly blending vintage style with modern convenience, the completely updated kitchen opens to a light and bright family room. All four bedrooms are located on the second floor, perfect for families with small children.  A spacious deck leads to beautifully landscaped grounds and two-car garage.
