Behind a tall privet hedge in prime South of Boulevard Sherman Oaks, this bright, single-level mid-century home combines elements of modern and contemporary design to splendid effect. Vaulted wood beam ceilings and clerestory windows in the open living and dining areas fill the home with gorgeous natural light. Solid beech wood flooring, a two-sided stone fireplace between living and family rooms and a wall of windows overlooking a full length, deep deck, complement its peaceful canyon and hilltop views. The spacious master suite includes a delightful, attached sitting room, updated bathroom and generous closet space. Two additional bedrooms share a luxurious, renovated full bath. The kitchen, updated with maple cabinetry, granite counters, tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances, includes a breakfast bar and eat-in area. In front, manicured hedges, drought resistant landscaping and stone pathways access a private patio ideal for relaxation and al fresco dining. The sloped rear yard is ideally suited for terracing to create stepped gardens or private patios for quiet reflection, shaded by trees. Beneath the detached 2 car garage is a bonus workshop/studio for the artist or work-at-home professional. Whether seeking the perfect pied-a-terre or family home, this property is an ideal opportunity just minutes from great shops and dining on Ventura Blvd., and a short drive to Beverly Hills, the Westside, UCLA, and everywhere L.A.
