Natural light pours through the many windows in this stately home with five sets of doors (three French doors) opening up to the court yard patio with gorgeous magnolia tree, and lush lawn surrounded by flowering and evergreen shrubs.

The U-shaped floor plan includes a cheerful family room with floor to ceiling windows facing the patio, which doubles as an every day eating area. The home boasts four separate suites.

The bedroom wing offers three bedrooms plus a bonus room and three full bathrooms. Just off the kitchen is the fourth bedroom with private bath –ideal for guests or a perfect play room for children.

The .67 acre lot is meticulously maintained by the current owner and features colorful perennials in the newly designed front garden, tall mixed evergreens surrounding the property, a cook’s garden of herbs, and both climbing and bush roses by the pool. A river rock path leads to a spa located off the patio.

Take advantage of the wonderful California climate by dining al fresco at a rustic table under the magnolia tree, or entertain indoors in the formal dining room with views of the beautiful front yard. The choice is yours in this wonderful Upper Happy Valley home.
