You'll be surprised at the quiet, discreet charm of this classic 1950 California ranch hidden behind hedges in the heart of Old Las Palmas. Cross a broad front lawn, go past bougainvillea bushes and up to a terrace with saltwater pool and spa on one side and the house on the other. The entry foyer leads to a perfectly scaled living room with fireplace, bookcases, and French doors opening to the pool. Two dining rooms: a big one opening to the south terrace and a smaller one for more intimate dinners. Big kitchen and pantry. Excellent separation of space for owners and guests. Master suite and an office (or alternatively another bedroom) on one side of the house. Two guest rooms, each with its own bath, on the other. Housekeeper's room and bath with its own entrance separated from the owner's living space. Covered parking. All completely private, being gated and surrounded by hedges. Views of the mountains to the south and west are superb.
