Home of the Week: A Mediterranean Dream in Highland Park
April 3rd, 2013 | by The Update
This classic Mediterranean home is situated on one of the prettiest streets in Highland Park. Over half an acre in size, this site and property combine the best of traditional character with today’s amenities in an incomparable setting. Perfect proportion, beautiful appointments, elegant fixtures, and a livable floor plan make this home a gem not often available to the market.
Lush front grounds with manicured gardens and inviting walkways lead to the covered porch and double door entry. Upon entering, the light and spacious foyer leads to the formal living and dining rooms, a beautiful wood paneled library with fireplace, and the spacious family room with sets of French doors leading to the outdoor living area.
There is a downstairs guest suite, complete with a private patio overlooking the rear grounds. The kitchen and morning room are located off the family room and each provides another wonderful living and entertaining space. The kitchen has newer stainless appliances, including a Wolf 8 burner range with griddle, SubZero refrigerator and freezer, dual dishwashers, center island, marble countertops, and a newly installed architectural window that lets in abundant light. The adjacent breakfast room has a fireplace and provides a cozy area for gathering.
On the second level, there are four bedrooms, including the master suite. One bedroom has a private bath and two of the others share a bath. The master is quite spacious and features Gracie wall coverings, tall windows, and an adjacent sitting room with fireplace and beautiful view of the rear grounds.
The master bath has his and her closets, separate oversized shower and tub, separate vanities, an exercise room, and very large extra closet. Her office is also located on the second floor, along with a large utility room and craft room. The third floor is comprised of a sitting area and two bedrooms and two full baths. Incredible storage is found on this level, including a large cedar closet.
Outside, the covered porch off the family and breakfast rooms has a beautiful fireplace and plenty of room for entertaining. It leads to the large yard and pool beyond. Mature landscaping and manicured grounds create privacy, along with a fountain created to complete the outdoor living area. The three car garage offers the ability to enter from the rear or front of the property. Above the garage, there is a large quarters area, comprised of two spacious apartments with full baths.
