What’s great about this House and ADU?
The front house is a craftsman house with a pitched roof, exposed rafters, and a covered front porch framed with bougainvillea. The ADU for this property sits directly behind the front house and was built in the same craftsman style with exposed rafters, vaulted ceilings, lots of big open windows letting in great natural light as well as creating a sense of space.
This unit was built with extended family, friends, and guests in mind, and depending on the owner, could potentially offset the cost of living with the right renter. The ADU is self-contained with a bedroom, plenty of closet space, a full bathroom designed with retro blush pink tile, a living room and a good size kitchen. It has all the comforts of home. The vaulted exposed wood ceilings combined with all the windows and white walls makes this space feel much larger than it is. Because it sits behind the main house, away from the street and surrounded by garden and green, there is a great indoor outdoor vibe. The small porch and sitting area out the front door is usable year-round, a perk of California living. This unit is truly home sweet home!!!
