Towering in stature, this 1930 Tudor Revival, designed by prominent period revival architect Francis Harvey Slocombe, reaches for the surrounding redwoods. Throughout its 4-bedroom multi-level layout, it showcases preservation, restoration and exceptional kitchen and master-bath renovations, which bring elegant, high-caliber components in sync with the home’s period aesthetic. Possessing extraordinary property, the home occupies a double lot outlined by majestic redwood trees, mature greenery, and park-like natural-stone hardscaping.
Tudor Revival traits grace the home’s façade: a steeply pitched gable roof, banks of elongated casement windows, and a hexagonal tower featuring ribbons of original amber-glass windows, which houses the arched entry, interior foyer, and staircase.
The interior reveals pristine period elements: deco tile schemes in the foyer and 2 baths, grand-scale casement windows delivering abundant natural light and verdant outlooks, ornate light fixtures and an original fireplace in the formal living room.
Complementing original attributes, the newly redesigned kitchen radiates classic allure while integrating current capability. Professional-grade appliances include a Wolf range, Viking refrigerator, and more. For congregating and creating, a peninsula offers seating and prepping areas, while the breakfast bay and formal dining area lie adjacent.
Bedrooms are noteworthy for windowed alcoves, decorative original hardware, and eminently spacious closets. Newly renovated, the tasteful and timeless master bath features natural stone adorning a glassed double shower, flooring, and double-sink vanity. In the hall bath and powder room, vintage tiles are as impeccable in condition as they are in their composition.
The lower level includes a home office, laundry room, and access to the 2-car attached garage. The home’s infrastructure, just bolstered for long-term robustness, incorporates new shear-wall and steel-beam structural systems.
