SHINE RESIDENCE

Step back in time, circa 1915, this stately white columned Veranda style home welcomes you with warmth, grace and charm. Upon arrival, you approach a large covered cobble stone porch with covered veranda above. Enter this open floor plan through the airy living and dining rooms and proceed to a magnificent cook's kitchen that is accented with laminated milk glass, Caesar stone counters and an island topped with distressed walnut butcher block.

An abundant use of painted wood moldings and wainscoting, wood-paneled ceilings and dark espresso color hardwood floors, all combine to create a background rich in traditional charm where new, fashion-forward materials create a comfortable home. Architecturally, the house is of Victorian Neo-Classical design with significant details inspired by the arts and crafts movement which was in vogue in the early 20th century.

This home lends itself to indoor/outdoor entertaining with its' informal family/great room linked to an open kitchen, breakfast area and private office/studio…all of which extend to a fabulous outdoor living room with a cozy all-weather fireplace. In total, there is a master suite with a covered outdoor retreat, gorgeous limestone master bath, two secondary bedrooms with a large covered balcony, an additional bonus media room upstairs and a guest/maid's quarters on the first floor. A home that captures the essence of California living and where home and coastal lifestyle converge.
