Leave it to this three-bedroom Oakmore house to turn heads with the Modern Mediterranean iteration of classic 1940s architecture. The exterior is graced by stuccoed walls, delicate ironwork and a red-tiled roof while the clean-yet-warm new white paint lends a decidedly modern look to the historic touches. Trailing rosemary, bougainvillea and traditional arch details greet you, and the Mod Med vibe is apparent the moment you step through the front door. Interiors are as fresh as they are beautiful, awash in light that streams from big windows, illuminating the architectural characteristics that epitomize a classic Mediterranean home.
Newly refinished wood floors feature a striking inlay border, and the focal- point fireplace adds major vintage style in the living room. Arched doorways and pass-throughs to the formal dining room highlight the Med, while dual-paned windows are a nod to the Mod. The dining room flows into a stunning kitchen, a manifestation of exquisite, thoughtful design. The kitchen is filled with name-droppers: Sub-Zero, Viking, Gaggenau, and these high end appliances complement the custom design choices — birch cabinets, soapstone counters, and a dramatic richly-grained tigerwood countertop at the bar sink. Spacious and open, the room melds modern comforts with organic materials and maintains a sense of artisanal quality. The large family room is open to the kitchen, and endowed with ample natural light, and its glass doors create a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor spaces. It’s impossible not to speak of the backyard as a living space — secluded within a beautiful setting of mature trees, plantings and stone patios, the expansive yard unfolds over several levels. Japanese maples mix with majestic oaks and a wall of bamboo, and a tree house at the rear of the deep lot creates a magical destination. A private oasis that feels a world away from the city.
On the first floor, two bedrooms create private, peaceful retreats, one at the front and one at the back of the house. Rustic tile adds warmth to the hall bath, with a simple shower-over tub layout and built-in vanity. Additional closets flank the bathroom, providing even more storage space. Upstairs, the master suite is a perfect place to recharge. Overlooking the verdant backyard, the expansive and open room includes a sitting area which creates an air of intimacy, and the private master bath is outfitted in stylish white tile with black accents.
A fully finished lower level packs a serious punch with a balance of functionality and focus: a spacious guest suite (au pair? office? home gym?) with a full bath; large laundry room with LG washer and dryer, utility sink, and plenty of cabinet storage; and practical interior access from the garage.
This spacious Modern Mediterranean home is welcoming and comfortable — nestled in the coveted Oakmore district, with tree-lined streets and a lovely mix of gracious architectural styles, the neighborhood feels like a hometown within the city. This vibrant community offers restaurants, shops, parks and commute options just moments away — the mix of quiet comfort and urban amenities strikes just the right note: home.
