4414 Shenandoah4144 Shenandoah, one of the four famous Dilbecks on every corner of the intersection of Douglas and Shenandoah, is on the market and whittled down to $1,550,000 from a high offering of $1.6. On the market since January 13, that $50,000 drop really worked some magic: the home is already under contract.

Paigebrook exterior

Which makes me want to cry because I love this home and would buy it in a heartbeat. 3393 square feet, two bedrooms, two and a half baths of storybook fantasy, a Carmel CA Hansel House. There are genuine turrets, a balcony and all the wonderful Dilbeck rambling farmhouse feel, the wonderful huge stone fireplace, corner fireplaces, arched doorways, rafters, and stone floors. This is a mini version of my precious Paigebrook out in Westlake, which we need to re-visit. Jeff Watkins with Briggs now has that listing, and I have actually had the honor to meet Mr. Dilbeck’s wife. 4144 was built in 1934 but remodeled in 1990. You get a slate roof, stone exterior, two bedrooms upstairs including the master and master bath suite, an ante-room after the second bedroom. Can you think of a better house for empty nesters? I cannot either, especially the location and the quarter in back with full bath for guests or return-to-nesters.4414 Shenandoah DR 4414 Shenadoah foyer 4414 Shenandoah kitchen 4414 Shenandoah porch 4414 Shenandoah den 4414 Shenandoah stairs 4414 Shenadoah master 4414 Shenandoah master bath 4414 Shenadoah master tub 4414 Shenadoah studio 4414 Shenandoah yard
