THE HOUSE IN DETAIL:
The house sits on a large private lot that is professionally landscaped. The driveway is big enough for trucks and smaller RVs, and has electrical outlets and lighting. The property is secure, and the home is clean and minimally decorated.
The spacious Living Room is brightened by a large picture window, and has a couch, Queen Anne chairs, and a leather chaise lounge.
The adjoining Dining Room has a leather-top Italian oak table with 8 chairs. A beautiful setting for a meal with family and friends.
The Kitchen is functional and efficient. It has a gas range, microwave, refrigerator with filtered water, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Appliances include a toaster, blender, food processor, waffle maker and more. The Kitchen is stocked with dishes, silverware, utensils, baking pans, dish towels, paper goods – even some spices and seasonings. There is a neat hidden pantry for canned and dry goods.
NOTE: The garage has a super-sized Pantry, with a washing machine and dryer, another refrigerator-freezer, and many more kitchen appliances and gadgets for your use, including professional-grade skillets and pans, electric griddles, woks, deep fryers, slow cookers, a bread machine, and a multitude of serving platters and utensils.
Back in the Kitchen, there is a nook with an oak pub table and 2 tall wrought-iron chairs. You’ll find a powder room off of the kitchen, too.
The Shangri-La is also ideal if you need an office. There is a roomy Home Office, with a wrap-around faux-wood desk and leather chair, plus ample room for work files and office supplies.
There are 2 TV rooms:
-- The Family Room has a flat-screen TV, a DVD player, and a receiver that connects to Bluetooth and other devices. (Easy-to-follow instructions are provided.) The room has a long suede couch that reclines on both ends, and a leather recliner. The French doors open to the back deck.
--“The Voodoo Lounge”, a sunken room that forks off the kitchen. Many elements make this room special. You’ll be compelled to read, do yoga, catch-up on your shows, or simply “veg-out” in here by gazing at the treetops through the skylight or admiring the backyard through the large picture window. The room’s main components are a flat-screen Internet TV, a teak-wood couch with gold suede futon, and a leather ottoman. A wood-burning stove and brick floor add to the ambiance. The skylight has a black-out shade you can close for better TV viewing. This room could also be used as a sleeping area for visiting grandkids or nieces/nephews!
AT&T U-Verse and Digital Video Recording (DVR) is provided on all 3 TVs in the house.
There are 2 bedrooms, both inviting with unique amenities:
--The Master Bedroom has an Olympic Queen bed (which is 6" wider than a regular Queen), a marble-top dresser and 2 closets. There is a flat-screen TV, ceiling fan, and decorative “Old Havana” style pedestal floor fan.
--The Guest Bedroom has a Queen bed (Serta luxury), a large multi-drawer dresser, a closet, and a built-in corner desk and shelves made of mahogany. Just in case you need another workspace!
The Main Bathroom is located near both bedrooms – clean and practical, and enriched with a stunning mural.
The pièce de résistance of the property, however, is the back deck.
The Deck is nearly usable year-round. Enjoy the peace and evergreens in this serene spot – ideal for reading, listening to birds, entertaining friends and family, and just unwinding.
If you enjoy cooking outdoors, you will love the large stainless steel natural gas grill, and the standalone gas burner that is enclosed in a custom-built cabinet. There is also a tall prep table with 4 hidden electrical outlets.
Relax in one of the custom-made wood benches or cedar Adirondack chairs. Play the TV or music from your phone on the 6 hidden outside Bose speakers. Have a soak in the saltwater hot tub.
All lawn care and house cleaning services are provided as part of the rental.
In summary, the Shangri-La is PERFECT for those who love to cook and entertain, be close to city life, or just enjoy quiet private time away from it all.
The entire home and property is yours during your stay. We only ask that you treat Shangri-La with respect, and leave it as good or better than you found it!
