Open floor plan? Check. Wildly bright rooms full of natural light? Check. Interesting angels, unique finishes, and a massive entertaining space downstairs? Check—this house has it all! Built in 1962, this four-bedroom, two full- and two half-bath home spans more than 3,000 square feet in the middle of Amberley Village. True to its time, the shed-roofed bi-level practically shouts its mid-century roots.
When you walk in, the home is open and you can see nearly every room from the foyer. To your right, the living room has a large window and space for a large sofa and entertainment center. To the left is the kitchen-slash-dining room. Throughout each of the three spaces, a gray-washed wood flooring contrasts with mostly white finishes, as in the kitchen. The dining area has built-ins that match the cabinets in the kitchen, a perfect setup for storing seldom-used dishes, making drinks, or a coffee station. The kitchen has an angled, eat-in island with room for four or five bar stools. Stainless appliances, speckled countertops, and glass-panel cabinets create a clean look that’s pulled together with the subway tile backsplash.
Wire and metal railings open up to the rest of the home and act as a piece of art themselves. The bedrooms are accessed by the half-level set of stairs from the living room. Each of the bedrooms are quite spacious with neutral-color carpet and white framed windows. In the master bath, the shower stall is lined with a simple yet dramatic starburst tile design. Vessel sinks sit atop marble finished countertops in the double vanity with sleek bar lights shining above. Next to the stairs that lead upstairs, there’s a set to the lower level too. Downstairs, the entertainment space is vast. A three-seater bar, cabinets, and wet bar with a drink fridge line the back of the room and up front there’s a corner fireplace faced with subway tile. A walkout leads to the backyard, and there’s a laundry room and an office area too.
Out front, the landscaping with a rock wall, shrubs, and large tree hangs over half the property and creates a welcoming entry. The house itself is set back a little from the street, offering privacy and seclusion. There’s a two-car garage around the side and a small patio in the backyard.
