This gorgeous home at 603 Monte Vista, with its textured painted-over brick facade, Spanish tile roof, dark black windows, and luscious landscaping is so swoon worthy. Go ahead and take a few moments if you need to catch your breath, because there are so many more beautiful photos where these came from. Truly, Shoot2Sell did a bang-up job on this home, showcasing the garden and exterior in a way that really highlights the color and fell of this home, which is on the market for the first time in 14 years. “This is one of the neighborhood’s most sought after homes,” Kacynski said. We can see why!

The home has two bedrooms, two baths, and fabulous finish-out. It isn’t on MLS yet, but you can contact Kacynski for a showing. He’s planning to list it for $539,000. It’s a design-o-phile’s dream in one of the best areas of the neighborhood!

While the exterior of the home feels so very much like a 1928 Spanish revival, inside it’s deliciously transitional with tons of modern touches. The sconces in the family room have clean lines, and the living room takes full advantage of the long, elegant shape. In the dining room you get a little bit of a Moroccan/Spanish vibe with that cool pendant and the trellis design on the wallpaper.

The decor is minimal, but not spare, capitalizing on colors and shapes rather than volume. That’s a good strategy in a home of this size and age, where it’s nigh impossible to achieve that much-desired “open floor plan” buyers want. Bright white walls, neutral rugs, and sleek accents are the perfect way to make the spaces in this 1,615-square-foot home feel much bigger. Of course, that doesn’t overshadow the fabulous details, including the arched doorways, built-ins, and beautiful hardwood floors.

In the kitchen, the first thing that will strike you is the Ann Sacks tile on the backsplash and countertops. Part of it is a groovy geometric pattern, and the rest is a cool Majolica-looking hand-painted tile. All of it is gorgeous, as is the mahogany-topped island. Next, you’ll swoon after that azure Dynasty range. I am going to need to take a minute to fan myself. That thing is so stunning! A pot filler, a hammered copper apron sink, open shelving, gorgeous custom cabinetry, custom fixtures imported from San Miguel, plus a wine refrigerator and a warming drawer. Where’s the party? Right here, that’s where.

When it’s time to recharge your batteries, the master suite is waiting. This beautiful bedroom … ugh. I love it. It’s sleek and modern without feeling sterile. And that bathroom? It’s like being in a Roman bath, with the chipped tiles and the earthy feeling. I love every bit of it, and the only thing it’s missing is some moss on the walls, maybe. The clay vessel sink and cool antiqued bronze hardware gives it a wonderful vibe!

And the backyard? It was made for spring gatherings! That deck! The fountain! The landscaping! I love all of it, and now this home has spoiled me for every other home ever. What do you think?

  • I love the house, but the kitchen is one El Fenix metaphor too far.

  • The most beautiful home ever on the dirt! Landscaping, Master Bath, and Kitchen just pure class…I want to hire the person responsible for all that! I have never been to an “ElFenix”, but if they look like that kitchen, I am moving in to one!

  • El Fenix, I didn’t get that. I think it’s the most darling house I’ve ever seen. The gardens are spectacular!! I liked it so much I bought it ;>)
