Can you visualize yourself in a custom, one-of-a-kind home, not a repeating cookie cutter plan? If so, keep reading. Nestled in the very desirable Chateau Highlands offering complete underground electrical wiring, you’ll find this true gem. Built in the mid-century (1959) by independent builder James McAdam (his iconic emblem is embedded in the walkway as you enter the home), nearly 2500 sq. ft. of living space, on 12,700 sq. ft. sits back from the street on a sweeping corner lot; you are struck by the classic white and black mid-century palette. As you approach the home you are greeted by double doors made from mesquite wood from New Mexico, below you the Terrazzo front porch flows through the foyer into a very large living room, to an impressive wall of plantation shutters overlooking the custom designed pool; an entertainer’s delight. A custom rebuilt fireplace, a hearth of granite and surrounding wood mantel make for a cozy evening. Many original 1959 features remain from its complete renovation in 1995; stainless steel cupboard handles and drawer pulls, marble counters in two bathrooms and vanity in master bedroom, original sink and faucet in half bath, cabinets are original and were custom to the home, Tula cloth walls etc. You will notice the floor is raised wood not slab, allowing for easier subterranean access and offers better back and leg support, so important as years go by. This home offers three bedrooms (with a 4th room that could easily be configured as a bedroom, office or formal dining room). The master suite is large with an ensuite bath recently renovated. The second bath is a marble counter double sink, the third is a half bath. Open floor plan provides a spacious feel throughout this home. Family room is large with a wet bar and access to the back yard, covered patio and pool; a security fence helps keep kids safe. There are loads of storage spaces, closets, cupboards, drawers and linen closets. Kitchen is light and airy, with a breakfast nook continuing the white and black motif. Ceiling fans in almost every room. The laundry room is off the kitchen that leads to a two-car garage that offers private exit and entry options. Paint is new inside and out, with new carpet in the bedrooms and hallway. This property has a large open area on the side of the home that could accommodate another private back yard area, maybe a vegetable garden.
