Rare historic Spanish hacienda home. Gorgeous Kensington historically designated home (Mills Act application in process), painstakingly upgraded to enhance its traditional livability. Secluded from the street, the serene inner courtyard is the heart of the home. Windows and doors open onto the graceful covered arcade bringing in sunlight and natural beauty. 3 bedrooms + an optional bedroom/office, 3 baths. Panoramic views from the beautiful back deck and dining deck overlooking the neighboring hillsides. The interior courtyard flowers showcase the beautiful tiled breezeway perfect for bringing the outdoors in or the indoors out. It provides an outdoor living room or you could create your own Zen garden. The home flows through curved archways from the dining room with its own separate outdoor retreat, to the living room with high wood-beamed ceilings, to the main bedroom with adjacent library/office/optional bedroom. This home could work as a single-level living space, having guests use the lower-level bedroom, if so desired. Gorgeous hardwood floors, Saltillo tiles, original built-ins, fireplace, upgraded eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, forced air heating and air conditioning. Even the garage is special with windows over-looking the interior courtyard and a dutch-door opening to the covered walkway. In addition, the garage has its own separate heating and air-conditioning system. The views from the gorgeous decks are beautiful and sweeping. You also see the back hillside awaiting your inspiration—a vineyard, olive or citrus grove, hillside of flowers—its design is only limited by your imagination. The bedrooms are separated from one another for privacy—one in the front of the house, one downstairs, and one (or two, if you use it as an optional bedroom) at the end of the courtyard. The main bedroom adjoins its bath with black & white basket-weave floor tiling and original arched shower. The adjacent room could function as an optional bedroom or an office with its paneled walls and built-in bookcases. The lovely covered outdoor room off the formal dining is perfect for al fresco dinners but it would also make a magical private reading room, wine bar, or yoga studio. The arched beamed living room features a fireplace with tiled hearth and mantle, wood-trimmed windows. Beautiful period and period appropriate light-fixtures throughout. Convenient separate laundry room next to the kitchen. There is an amazing 10’ x 7’ storage room under the house.
