have been patiently waiting for the ideal home to come on
the market, your search may be over. The home has four
bedrooms, four baths, five living areas and about 5,000
square feet (per the seller).
The residence was designed
by the city's best-known architect, Luis Jauregui. All you
have to do is glance at the photos above to appreciate
Jauregui's trademark use of soft curving lines that give his
designs so much appeal.
Extras Like A
First-Floor Guest Room And A Light-filled Studio Off
The overall design includes an appealing layout. For
example, there is a first-floor guest room, and full bath in
case you have older relatives who will visit but cannot
climb stairs. The master, and two large additional bedrooms
are upstairs. And here is something you have not seen
anywhere else. You will see a set of French doors when you
walk into the master bedroom. Open them and

songbirds and squirrels in the trees and cute deer routinely
stroll the grounds. On pleasant weekends, you can start
mornings out on the terrace with fresh coffee and your iPad.
Imagine having a beautiful spot for al fresco lunch. Later
you can curl up in a hammock, read a book or write a letter
to a friend.
Other outdoor improvements
include a firepit, garden shed and if you like to stay in
shape, you will love the sport court for playing basketball
and paddle tennis. Add some lights in the trees, play
festive music, and you can use the sport court for a big
party while you dance under the stars. You can also walk
straight from the back yard on to the hike and bike trails.
There is only one possible catch to this transaction. The
owner has upgraded the terrace areas, added wood floors in
living areas, improved the kitchen, and they just completed
exterior painting and replaced all siding with HardiPlank.
However, you will likely want to update all bathrooms at
some point. Please pass if you cannot oversee this kind of
