Stepping inside, you’ll discover a haven of comfort and elegance. Solid wood floors made from 3/4″ white oak flow throughout, lending warmth and a timeless beauty to the living space. The exquisite wood paneling draws your eyes through the open floor plan arriving at the kitchen countertops, crafted from the original hardwood floors, handmade talavera tile serve as a striking backsplash, adding a touch of artistry and the custom slide-out pantry helps maximize storage space, ensuring that the kitchen remains both functional and aesthetically pleasing. At the rear of the house, off the additional bonus room, French doors lead to the massive covered patio that boasts a surround sound system, making it an ideal space for outdoor gatherings, movie nights, or simply relaxing with a book and your favorite tunes and nearly doubling the usable sq footage for entertainment and everyday life. The Private oasis yard welcomes you with a beautifully landscaped garden featuring native chaparral mallows, deer grass, wild mountain lilac, and fragrant Cleveland sage. These drought-resistant plants thrive effortlessly in the Southern California climate. California-friendly fruit trees such as olive, pomegranate, and lime not only enhance the visual appeal but also provide a bountiful harvest. One remarkable feature of this property is the rainwater garden, ingeniously designed to collect and channel rainwater from the patio gutter to irrigate the lush vegetation, reducing water consumption and promoting sustainability. For the young adventurers or aspiring architects, a two-story fort crafted from pine, redwood, and douglas fir stands as an inviting playground. The absence of pressure-treated wood ensures safety for kids at play. Corten steel borders define the landscape and is echoed in the planter boxes, which is made from food-safe redwood. Nearby, a charming chicken coop/run, built with durable douglas fir and crowned with a cedar roof, invites you to embrace a homesteading lifestyle. The first bedroom features a built-in queen-sized bed and a trundle bed, both constructed from finger-jointed pine. A built-in hutch, made with soft maple and maple plywood, accented by basswood lattice, adds a touch of elegance. A custom corner bookcase in red oak plywood provides space for cherished volumes. The second bedroom boasts a custom-built queen-size Murphy Bed with a double desk made from oplar, aplder, douglas fir, and redwood. A custom closet hutch in soft maple with basswood lattice offers ample storage. The first bathroom underwent a full renovation to provide a spa-like experience. It features new tiles, a luxurious shower and high-end fixtures that elevate your daily routine. The additional full bath off the bonus room has custom hand printed floor tiles that must not be over-looked. If you’re seeking a home that effortlessly combines eco-conscious outdoor living with modern interior comfort and style, 1213 W 38th St is your perfect match.
