Designer and Opera Director's lovely home located on a quiet safe street in the upscale tree-lined neighborhood of Atascadero. Only a 20 minute walk to bustling Centro, Atascadero's serenity seems a world away! Enter through a outdoor sala, lush plantings, a fireplace, sitting area and outdoor dining room table lit by artisanal stars shining brightly overhead. Perfect for cocktails, morning coffee or sipping Champagne and star gazing. The chef's kitchen is exceptionally large and has all modern appliances, a handmade center island of beautiful mesquite wood and
decorated with Diego Rivera green & white talvera tiles and antique cabinetry. Perfect space for preparing for large dinner parties or enjoying a snack at the tiled bar. The dining area, composed of a stunning banquette upholstered in rich paisley and seating 6 to 8 comfortably, flows into the living room area in soft beige tones, persian carpets and stunning original artwork from Mexico and Europe. Watch your favorite TV programs from the U.S. and Canada on a flat screen with Satellite television, or step out into the patio complete with hand-carved wooden furniture upholstered in white and facing lush gardens and a 18th Century fountain. Guest bathroom on first floor. Up one flight of stairs are the Master suite with bath and the Guest Suite, also with ensuite private bath. Each bedroom is elegantly decorated with luxurious linens and Queen beds.
A balcony with outdoor seating is off the Master Suite overlooking the lush gardens and affords privacy for morning coffee brought to you by our maid who is there 3 x a week to clean and do laundry. Truly a lovely warm home that echoes expensive decor and a loving touch throughout.
No smoking, no pets, no children. No large parties or other people other than renters. No overnight guests. Limit 4 people.
