Property Description

This substantially renovated and modernized 1940s home is the union of vintage charm and modern design. Ideally distanced from Old Town Monrovia, this home is located in the North Encinitas Historic District, which is two tree-lined blocks of vintage and historically-significant homes. Both cosmetic and functional upgrades were included in the renovation, including a new roof, driveway, and some upgrades to the electrical and plumbing systems. Offering three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a master bedroom with walk-in closet, the interior layout leaves no wasted space. The renovation included both bathrooms being gutted down to the studs and re-imagined. The kitchen was stripped down to the plaster and started fresh with dark inset cabinets, quartz counter-tops, and modern KitchenAid appliances. High-end European Oak engineered hardwood floors are a luxurious feature. Several “green” features are the new higher-efficiency cool roof shingles, new tankless water heater, new blown-in insulation in the attic, new reverse osmosis water filter to cut down on waste of plastic bottles, new Nest Learning Thermostat, new integrated-LED recessed lighting, and new automatic sprinkler system, which also includes efficient drip irrigation. Copper plumbing, solid wood doors, all-around rain gutters, ABS plastic drain lines, and 200-amp electrical panel are bonus features. Eugenia and Dodonaea hedges were planted for future privacy screening in mind. This home will not disappoint.
