NEW CASA LINDA ESTATES CRAFTSMAN SITTING ON 0.8 ACRES WITH GUEST HOUSE
Open house: Sunday, Oct. 1, 2-4 p.m.
You wouldn’t expect to find a Craftsman in the Casa Linda Estates areas, but our lead open house this week is a new-build of exactly that style and it’s lovely. Located at 1508 Bella Vista Dr., this home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, three living areas, and 4,231 square feet on two stories, built in 2008 and sitting on 0.8 acres. There is also a guest house with 1,200 square feet and its own kitchen and full bath.
Builders have done a great job of creating an authentic feel with expected Craftsman elements: rich hardwoods, custom cabinetry and millwork, mullioned windows, and seed-glass and Rookwood-styled fireplace. Living spaces are oversized and a splendid kitchen offers a marble-topped island, farm sink, built-in, miles of cabinets, and stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop. There’s seating not only at the island, but also in a built-in banquette. The home has a formal dining area with handsome built-ins and a buffet space. Love the sunroom on the lower level with a wall of windows, as well as the luxe master suite on the first floor, with a great bathroom. The back features a patio and large swimming pool and spa.
This Casa Linda Estates Craftsman was listed Sept. 6 by Vicki Foster with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.249 million, reduced to $1.199 million.
