Columns atop with a beautifully embellished frieze welcome guests to this 1928 Piedmont Mediterranean home, available for the first time in over 50 years.  Ornate ironwork, ochre colored barrel tiles, and copper patina accents showcase this Mediterranean-inspired home. This home exudes quality, craftsmanship and Old World charm a discerning buyer would appreciate. The expansive formal living room is quite elegant with its soaring coved ceiling, wood-trimmed arch windows, handsome fireplace with an exquisite two-tone marbled-carved surround, scones, & chandelier. Generously proportioned, this room along with the formal dining room can easily accommodate large gatherings with ease. The kitchen with granite counters has a separate breakfast area with built-ins and lovely bay windows for more casual fares. A very spacious laundry room that was originally the fifth bedroom and full bath completes the main level. From the octagon tile foyer, beautiful ochre teal relief tile risers accent steps leading to the upper level where four spacious bedrooms and an intimate family room await. The master suite enjoys a walk-in closet, sparkling chandelier and a recently renovated bathroom with travertine tile, granite counters, beautiful bronze fixtures & an oversized shower w/built-in bench. From the master suite or the central hallway, there’s a bedroom painted in a warm, rich color palette with built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcases and armoire creating an inviting space, ideal for an office, reading room or personal library. Beyond this room is an intimate family room for small, casual gatherings.  Infused with wonderful natural light from wood windows on three sides, this room not only offers lush views, but exquisite stenciled wood beam ceilings, adding both visual warmth and character. On the other side of the central staircase are two additional bedrooms. Reminiscent of a bygone era, the secondary bedrooms are quite generous and naturally lit with windows on two sides. A convenient hall bath between the rooms has recently been renovated to integrate stylistically with its Mediterranean genre. Off a separate hall niche, there is a powder room for added convenience. Many of the original light fixtures have been retained, enhancing the overall character to this architecturally distinct home. While there is much to be enjoyed within, there are many wonderful amenities close at hand. There is a popular recreational playground nearby and within a short car ride, one can enjoy a weekly farmer’s market, comprehensive shopping, dining, entertainment, & convenient freeway access. Exuding timeless elegance, this home is truly exceptional.
