Iconic midcentury design meets bohemian spunk amidst native surroundings at this Chester Carjola classic, offering one-of-a-kind style almost as striking as the bird's eye panoramas on display from its tranquil knoll top mesa on a hidden cul-de-sac in coveted Mission Canyon Heights.
The elevated 2BD/2BA house was conceived in 1949 as a modest bungalow and has been artfully expanded since (namely, to include a second bedroom suite with private entry and patio), while still showcasing timeless details from the era. A raw wood theme prevails in the finishes - hardwood floors, wood paneling and trim, and tongue-and-groove vaulted beamed ceilings - while a corner fireplace, built-ins, and large sliding glass doors add additional aesthetic appeal. Walls of oversized windows meet at the corner of the spacious great room, in characteristic midcentury fashion, framing a sweeping, unobstructed vista of the city, ocean, and islands while welcoming an abundance of natural light and a consistent breeze. Recent updates include a new laundry room and a stunning master bathroom with such forward-thinking finishes as an ultra-modern wood vanity, an open glass shower, heated limestone flooring, and wall-to-wall subway tile. The master suite has a walk-in closet and opens, as does the living room, to a sunlit central patio overlooking the horizon.
Complementing the angular façade and elegant stonework from Utah's Painted Desert, colorful drought-tolerant landscaping envelops the property amidst mature avocado, lime, Meyer lemon, and orange trees. The oversized, 0.35-acre lot affords a wealth of off-street parking (a premium in this neighborhood!) across two driveways and a carport, while a hammock, swing, and private backyard area with storage shed remind us that scenic repose is one of life's finest luxuries.
