Got a large family? Want those kids in one of the best public schools in the valley? Done. Talk about SPACE. With a total of 3,022 SF these 7 bedrooms, 5 baths are split between two homes. That’s right – keep the in-laws in their own space next time they come visit. Or rent out the front house and live in the back. Either way, the great thing about this house is that it’s plural – and all within the Hesby Oaks school district.
Bam. Two houses. Front and back. My dear partner Amy Klein has had this wonderful home listed and has been gracious enough to open the doors and let me spend some time at this fantastic home that offers so many opportunities. The owners of the front house built the back, permitted as a rec room, as a place for their daughter’s family to live so that her children could go to Hesby Oaks. Touted as one of the best schools in the valley, it’s also one of the only ones that do Kindergarten through 8th grade. That makes this set up a fantastic choice for those built-in babysitters (aka grandparents) to be close to home. Truly just steps apart.
The front house
Let’s head into the front house first.
Walking up the circular drive and the cute brick patio, walk through the door and into the 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with over 2,077 square feet. And a indoor jacuzzi. Talk about a party. But I digress…
Step in through the foyer and into the formal living room. The beautiful room has a beautiful picture window, original wood floors, fireplace and built-in bookshelves.
The doorway straight ahead leads to the two front bedrooms and full bath. To the right is the family room.
The fireplace and built-in bookcase. Beautiful.
Tot he right of the foyer is a fantastic formal dining room. Look at that gorgeous picture window.
Through the dining room is the kitchen. Take note of the granite counter tops and a nice window over the sink.
Once through the kitchen, you can either exit straight through the french doors to the back patio, or find your laundry space on the right and the breakfast nook to the left. Or continue through the breakfast nook to the family room.
Let down your hair in the family room.
The room is accessed either through the breakfast nook or the formal living room (doorway to left).
Or head towards the right (in this pic straight ahead) for bedroom 3 and the master suite.
Just off the family room is a 3/4 bath.
Let’s digress and head back to the front bedrooms. Just off the formal living room, the hall has built in shelves and a full bathroom between the two bedrooms.
Front bedrooms 1 and 2 both have those beautiful original wood floors. Smack in the middle is a large sized full bathroom.
Back at the end of the house is bedroom 3, is currently being used as an office.
Ah, the master suite. Who doesn’t want a fireplace in their bedroom to cozy up to on winter nights?! How romantic.
A 3/4th private master bath and large walk-in closet in the master suite.
Yep, that’s exactly what it looks like. A built-in jacuzzi. That’s one way to throw a party, huh? Great for anyone with ailments or aging parents to soothe weary bones. The spa room can be accessed either from the master suite, or through a sliding door from the back – that is if you’re willing to share with the back house.
Off the kitchen is the two car garage and patio area.
Between the two homes is a great green space with fruit trees. To the left is a patio area off the front house master’s spa room.
The back house
A wrap around porch has three french doors leading out: from the entertaining spaces main door, and from two master suites. The back house features 3 bedrooms plus a den (possible 4th bedroom) 2.5 baths, and roughly 1,500 square feet.
Walk through the main entrance into the open floor plan. A large wrap around kitchen, great room, and breakfast nook with vaulted ceilings and sky lights.
Straight ahead is the master suite. To immediate left is the den & hallway with 2 bedrooms & 1.5 baths.
Den and middle bedroom. The den is open, but could have the door added back in to make it four bedrooms.
Down the long hallway are the bedrooms, and stackable laundry.
The hall half bath leads through to the full bath so that the full bath can either be used by the end bedroom, or opened up so the middle room can use as well.
The end bedroom has french doors, dual closets, and a doorway into the full bathroom.
The master suite has clerestory windows, a walk in closet and large bathroom. Also includes beautiful french doors to the yard. It’s so nice to have a separate space from the other bedrooms – yet still be all one floor.
