4137 Stanford extLook at this darling home on one of the most coveted streets in University Park, 4137 Stanford. From the front, the home looks like the charming, fairy tale architectural stamp of Carmel’s Hugh Comstock, who built these all over Carmel in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Hugh Comstock houseThis angel circa 1937 stone and brick cottage has that Comstock feel of an historic cottage, the kind that lined University Park and are disappearing by the bulldozer’s beep. But not this one! Once you open the front door, under that darling arch, a new era takes over. And I do mean, new!

There is also an additional bedroom downstairs with a private bath that could be a nursery,  office or mancave. The living and dining rooms are generously proportioned, totally bathed in enough natural light to cure SADD. Trot upstairs and you will find a large family room, plus three more oversized bedrooms and baths. When I first saw this, I thought, what a smart idea! Putting the master down (plus that extra bedroom) gives you perfect accessibility to anyone infirm or sporting a cast. And the family room upstairs gives guests and noisy kids some privacy, you some peace and quiet.4137 Stanford FR 4137 Stanford master 4137 Stanford DR 4137 Stanford lady bath

The home is 3598 square feet, four bedrooms total, four baths, and that great kitchen is so new I doubt there’s a crumb on the stove. The whole kitchen was just updated last year when the HVAC system was replaced, including all new duct work under the house. That master bath wallpaper is a little bit too Margaret Thatcher for me, but then that can be changed in a second. By the way, wallpaper is coming back bigtime.

This home is on the corner of Prestwick and Stanford. Asking $1,275,000, a dip from a high of $1,595,000.  Yeah, I can see $1.275 easy. The home has a 60 by 150 foot lot, it’s gorgeous, and go ahead, enjoy an extra Sprinkles: you can walk to and from Preston Center, and burn those calories!
