Set on a knoll in the treasured San Rafael hills, this majestic Mediterranean home exemplifies style and taste. The red tile, stone and gorgeous hardwood floors throughout the house create a warm, romantic and inviting place to live. Red tile floors and a spiraling staircase with intircate wrought iron rails create the inviting entrance. Step down to the gracious living room with coffered paneled ceilings, fireplace with colorful tile accents, a large picture window to the front yard, French windows and a French door that leads to an outdoor seating area with its own fireplace. From the living room, step up to the formal dining room which overlooks the pool. Notable is the original hand painted wallpaper with scenes of long ago days. The first floor also includes a generous kitchen with stone floors, granite and wood counters and plenty of storage and pantry. The laundry, half bath and second eating area complete the first floor. All three bedrooms are on the second floor including two generous sized bedrooms and a spacious owner's suite with walk-in closet, more storage and a green glass bathroom with enclosed shower. A second bath with fantastic yellow tile with black trim is off the hallway. A custom pool and spa graces the private back yard along with an outdoor cooking area. Two-car garage and many updates to the systems. Close to Old Pasadena, hip Eagle Rock, the RoseBowl and many other desired destinations.
