Inspired by the storybook cottages located throughout England, this home is more charming than anything else in the price range. An architectural gem of charm and scale. Arguably U City’s most desirable address, Alta Dena, just steps from Clayton, has it all. Outdoor living spaces abound! Coffee on the front porch, cocktails in the courtyard! Fine craftsmanship throughout; best highlighted by the showstopper living room hosting beamed cathedral ceiling, plaster moldings, fireplace and original built-ins. Dining room features ingenious corner windows, display case and French doors to New Orleansesque courtyard patio. Kitchen with Shaker cabinetry, Corian counters, and stainless appliances. Main floor master suite (currently used as a family room) allows lifestyle options!. Two spacious upper bedrooms overlook peaceful back patio and grounds. Single car garage. Clean lower level could be the ideal studio or workshop. Easy walk to downtown Clayton and U.City loop. Ideal condo alternative!
