Hardly a detail was overlooked in this Cory neighborhood home to create a beautifully updated interior design that harmonizes with its inviting outdoor retreat.
Nestled among ranch-style homes in desirable Central San Jose along the Santa Clara border and close to the Santa Clara and Rose Garden neighborhoods, this single-story beauty offers more than 1,300 square feet of light-filled living space, including two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Its sizeable 6,331-square-foot property provides a deep setback with a professionally designed front drought-tolerant garden with lush Kurapia groundcover and river rock accents around a mature Japanese Maple tree. The aesthetic continues with the brick paver driveway and inviting front porch entry.
The open floor plan illuminated in natural light from multiple skylights features tongue and groove ceilings, recessed lighting, dual pane windows, plantation shutters, and wood-grain laminate floors. The living room also has a fireplace with a stone to-ceiling surround.
A spectacular kitchen designed in a neutral palette of colors combines style and function, showcasing quartz counters and a glass subway tile backsplash enhanced by a decorative band of mosaic tile and a porcelain tile floor. Crisp bamboo cabinetry with sleek brush nickel bar pulls offers plenty of storage options on the pullout shelves. Enjoy a backyard view from the picture window above the stainless farmhouse sink with a Hans Grohe pulldown faucet. Updated stainless appliances include a GE range with a five-burner electric cooktop and Zephr hood, a GE refrigerator, and a Bosch dishwasher.
Step down into the spacious family room and adjacent dining area. Slide open the glass door for a seamless flow to the expansive backyard. Manicured landscaping, garden beds with lighting, and abundant fruit trees wrap around the spacious pergola and patio, creating an ultra-private outdoor sanctuary. Also in the backyard is an eight by 14-foot shed with a front door and windows that offers additional space to create the ideal home office/study, yoga/art studio, and more. More storage space is located in a gated side yard with updated fencing. Among the many mature trees are several fruit trees, including persimmon, Asian pear, Meyer lemon, pineapple guava, mandarin, and lime.
Two bedrooms also have high tongue-in-groove ceilings and closets with sliding mirrored doors. One bedroom has an additional walk-in closet with built-in shelving. Two bathrooms include one newly designed with a beautiful glass mosaic tile wall, an oversized shower, and a single-sink white oak vanity. Behind a decorative glass barn door is the laundry room with a Bosch front-loading washer and dryer, a folding table, a stainless sink, and access to the side yard. A second bathroom has a tub/shower combination and a single-sink vanity.
Enjoy the attention to detail from the Rachio sprinkler system and a tankless water heater to a Nest thermostat, dual pane windows, central air conditioning, and freshly painted exterior trim.
About a mile and a half from the historic Municipal Rose Garden and Santa Clara University, this home is also only about a two-mile drive to a multitude of shopping and dining options at Santana Row and Valley Westfield Mall. Less than four miles straight up Pruneridge Avenue to Apple’s Space Ship, this home will be conveniently close to the proposed Google Plex in downtown San Jose and its more than 15 acres of proposed parkland. Downtown Los Gatos is about a 10-mile drive or drive less than six miles to the Willow Glen downtown and farmers market.
