Hidden from the street and tucked behind a lush magical garden, this jewel box two-level home is a one-of-a-kind residence in a lovely Cow Hollow location. Springtime brings an abundance of wisteria blooms to the garden’s entrance. Brown shingled with circular front patio, truly outstanding mature landscaping and much coveted privacy, the residence has been refreshed through a collaboration between the current owners and interior architect, Julie Drummond. The fully-detached home and its garden are a rare gift of beauty for city lovers in search of serenity.
The entry foyer invites one into the living room with gas fireplace and windows on two sides revealing the beauty of the gardens. The generous, impressive kitchen and adjoining dining area form the heart of the home with the best professional appliances centered on a massive gas range with six burners and griddle. The large island, perfect for entertaining and casual dining, melds wood and white Carrara marble for serious cooks and bakers. White subway tiles above limestone counters complement the white wood cabinetry, offset by a deep blue-grey china cabinet. The dining area opens via French doors to the rear deck and landscaped patio with plumbed firepit, bench seating and gas grill.
The powder room and laundry area completes this level. Curated light fixtures and window coverings, oak floors, recessed lighting and abundant natural light are found throughout the home.
The upper level’s master suite overlooking the rear patio includes a walk-in closet and nook for seating or office. Its ensuite stone bath offers dual sinks and shower stall. The remaining two bedrooms overlook the front garden and share the hall bath with shower over tub.
The two-car side-by-side garage sits at the front of the property, providing privacy and allowing for a third car to park at the curb. One securely enters the garden from the garage. A side walkway allows for garden and patio upkeep without entering the home; it also leads to the side entrance for the partial basement with storage.
