Stunning Remodeled Victorian with a 1300 sf Finished, Walkout Basement!
You will love coming home to this rare beauty! Pull right into your two car garage without a thought of hunting for a downtown parking space. Sit and relax on the cozy wraparound porch, enjoying a glass of wine, or a cup of Roy's Station coffee. On summer nights, invite friends to toast s'mores out back in your own private oasis. With the corner lot, there's plenty of parking for them, too.
When you're ready to head inside, this home will take your breath away - every single time. Lovingly restored and remodeled, this 1902 Victorian exudes all the grace and charm of yesteryear, while offering the luxury and convenience today's homeowner demands. With $200k in upgrades, the attention to detail and quality is impeccable. And with a full 1300 sf finished, walkout basement, there is more space than you could possibly imagine!
The main floor has a welcoming formal entry, spacious and bright living and dining rooms with original, refinished wood floors, high coved ceilings, and restored leaded glass in the bay windows. The rooms can be separated by original pocket doors if desired.
The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream: Thermador gas range, custom-designed Vent-A-Hood, Shaws Original apron front sink, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, Corian counters, Crown Point maple cabinetry w/ soft-close drawers and customized storage, Napa Style butterfly-leaf island, and a cork floor that is as comfortable as it is beautiful.
The main floor also holds the lovely master suite, as well as a spacious guest bedroom and bathroom. The master bath has a luxuriously deep soaking tub, with a waterfall spout, rain shower head, and hand-made tile surround. The beautiful floor tile is imported from Japan. The walk-in closet has a pull-down ladder for easy access to the large attic. The spa-like guest bath shows off Italian tile and quality fixtures. The laundry area is conveniently located on the main floor, near the master suite. The washer and dryer are included with the house.
Downstairs, there is a full, finished basement with plenty of windows and a separate entrance. It is currently divided into a kitchen/office area, a bedroom, a living/dining room combination, another office area, and several storage rooms. Per previous owners, there was once a bathroom there as well, and that plumbing may still exist.
In addition to all the beautification, this home has many other important upgrades. Dual-pane windows throughout. Security system for peace of mind. Brand new 50 yr roof with new rain gutters. Improved perimeter drainage system including french drains and sump pumps in the yard. The heat & a/c ductwork has been rerouted for improved air flow. Central air conditioning is a wonderful feature on these hot summer days. Newer water heater. Mainly copper pipes. LifeSource whole house water treatment system to protect your pipes, your appliances, and your skin.
Wonderful downtown San Jose location, just steps from Japantown, and a nice stroll or bike ride to an exciting array of dining, shopping, farmers markets, parks, museums, theaters, nightlife, concert and sports venues. Close to SJSU, City Hall, and many other major employers. Easy access to public transportation, including VTA, Light Rail, and CalTrain.
