Situated in the hills of Kessler Park on Colorado Boulevard, this 1930s Tudor home has historic charm, updated details and a close proximity to the Stevens Park golf course and Bishop Arts District.
At 3,349 square feet, the home has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and one half-bath. There’s also a full apartment above the detached garage, and a backyard complete with a flagstone patio on the 0.24-acre lot.
Listing agent Kay Wood called it a “classic Kessler Park home” with its historic design, original leaded glass windows and slate roof, along with the tree-filled property.
She said current and previous owners of the home have consistently updated the home to keep it fresh while maintaining the original details and architectural style.
The home is two stories, with two bedrooms downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs. At the entryway, there’s a built-in wooden bench adjacent to the front door that gets natural light from the windows on the front of the home.
A large living room just past the entrance has high ceilings with wooden beams that accent the arched structure. The room has access to a light-filled formal dining room, and the nearby kitchen. The kitchen has soapstone counters and custom cabinets, along with another set of built-in cabinets in the breakfast area that have a vintage-looking design.
Also adjacent to the living area, there’s a small room that looks into the backyard through three sets of French doors with a floor of stone, beams across the ceiling and a desk.
The two bedrooms on the first floor share a bathroom.
The primary suite on the second floor has a wall of built-in cabinets and bookshelves. The primary bathroom has checkered tile throughout, dual vintage-looking sinks, a walk-in shower and a separate tub bathed (pun intended) in natural light. There’s also a walk-in closet in the primary suite, complete with numerous built-in shelves and cabinets.
Two more bedrooms sit on the second floor and share a Jack-and-Jill-style bathroom with dual sinks.
A guest apartment sits over the three-car garage. It has a studio-like setup with a full bathroom, kitchenette and space for a bedroom and living area inside.
