Set deep on an almost 11,000 sq ft lot, behind a majestic 100+ year old California Live Oak tree, sits this storybook English Cottage style home.  Built in 1926, this 3 bed, 2 bath home is rich with original details inside and out.  A welcoming front door protected by hand hughned beams and turned columns and a Tudor influenced canopy is your passport to this home’s old world charm and casual grace.  A generous living room with stone fireplace surround features vaulted ceilings, sun filled windows and floor to ceiling library bookcases.  Off the living room is a cozy study perfect for quiet reflection.  The formal dining room sits opposite and offers enough space for large family gatherings.  The efficient kitchen is well appointed and includes an office nook and adjacent laundry room.  The third bedroom, currently used as a family room, opens directly to the back patio with BBQ, a refreshing pool, and garden through large French doors.  A secluded master suite has windows on three sides and French doors opening onto the patio allowing the fragrances of the garden to fill the space.  A third bedroom and bath complete this blissful cottage.  A proper English Cottage would not be complete without park like gardens and this one doesn’t disappoint.  The grounds include mature fruit trees (grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime, persimmon, avocado and cumquat) an array of roses, and many exotic species of flora including a giant “melted wax” cactus, an Australian Grass tree and even a rare “death Lily”, the same species famously featured at the Huntington Gardens.  The addition of discretely placed American made Solarpanels brings this Cottage into the 21st century generating 3.2 Kilowatts of power, ½ the home owners total electrical use.  Come find your storybook happy ending.
