Welcome home to what is truly a Revival of a Spanish classic. Nestled in the heart of So Mission Hills is this 3bd/2ba family home which has undergone a multi-year restoration, resulting in arguably one of the most exciting presentations to hit the recent market. The residence boasts everything from new windows & doors, remodeled baths, to a stunning new gourmet kitchen. There's also a massive 4 car (2 tandem) garage with elevated roof that allows a mechanic or car enthusiast wanting a lift. See Supplmnt. Coming home will always fill you with happiness as you drive up to this storybook home. Evoking images of the classic California lifestyle, the architecture is the quintessential definition of Southern California Living. Step inside and be charmed by the beautiful 11 foot beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and picturesque fireplace (redone in 2012 by Authentic Fireplaces). The living room flows directly into the dining room, which features gracious French doors out to the patio and driveway areas that have been restored with custom tile from Malibu Ceramics Works. The home’s new windows are Milgard, which is a highly rated product for both function and customer satisfaction. Lighting fixtures through-out are by Restoration Hardware. The restoration of the home was completed with a sensibility to the original architecture and character of the home, yet providing a modern adaptation that is sure to please almost everyone! The kitchen is truly the centerpiece of the home. The owners took what were 3 separate functionally obsolescent spaces, and integrated them into one large open concept great space. The floors are Terra Cotta floor tiles - custom from Tierra y Fuego in Otay, which is consistent with the home’s Spanish character. Additionally, the oversized farm sink, Quartz countertops, gas stove, gas range hood and all Samsung appliances provide the kitchen with the subtle, yet important modern amenity and flair. Finished off with full maple cabinetry, soft close doors, all pull-out drawers and under-cabinet lighting complete a perfect offering. Both baths - hall and master - were also completely rebuilt. The hall bath features concrete, hand painted floor tiles from Tierra y Fuego, like the kitchen. There is a wonderful double sink vanity and the Italian porcelain tile has been inlaid around the shower. The baths also sport Toto brand toilets and the half bath has an extra-long soaking tub. The master bath was expanded from original to provide a true master suite experience. It, too, has the same flair for modern, yet pays homage to the character of the home. If the kitchen is the centerpiece of the home, the GARAGE of this home is the Main Event. You can look long and hard and rarely find a structure both so striking and utility. This custom built 4 car (2 two car tandem) offers everything a car or hobby enthusiast could ask for. It has a space for a workshop and also a storage loft above. The high ceiling affords someone the ability to install a mechanics lift in order to work underside of their projects with ease. There is hot water, natural gas, 220v and 110v electrical and full plumbing available, making the options endless for what can be done. The exterior has been professionally landscaped throughout. The grounds are planted with an array of fruit trees including mandarin, lemon and pomegranate. A herb garden with star jasmine, Rosemary, Lavender, Sage and lemon eucalyptus complete the picture. Additionally, there is automatic outdoor lighting in both the front and backyards and a full irrigation system has been installed throughout, even into the raised planter beds on the side of the home. The backyard is completely gated, making it very private, and has a water feature and small rock pond with no standing water, plus a large dog run on the side. Last, but certainly not least, there is a large basement area which is perfect for storage, workshop or potential future bedroom. The assessor square footage appears to include this space in the overall sq ft, but all prospective buyers should verify sq footage for themselves. The home has a central AC and heating system and access to the duct work is a piece of cake, due to the large area under the home! If you choose to expand and go up with a second floor, depending on city height restrictions, you could have an amazing westward and bay facing view!
