Located in the heart of San Jose’s highly sought-after Shasta-Hanchett park neighborhood, this captivating English Tudor Revival home beautifully marries historic charm with modern amenities.

The picture perfect storybook architecture with multiple gables and romantic lines is a true delight. The lush green lawn, framed by blooming white roses, extends a warm and inviting welcome. Upon entering, discover a playful and symmetrical layout, graced with original hardwood floors and beautiful crown molding throughout. Abundant natural light streams through the many picture windows.

The main floor features an open floorplan with a generous great room and large dining room. Volume ceilings grace the space. The original wood burning fireplace is home to the historic fireclay ceramic tile design. Just beyond is the updated kitchen with newly refinished hardwood floors. Beautiful quartz countertops, a farmhouse sink, and a Thermador 6-burner range will delight any home chef. The paneled refrigerator and dishwasher seamlessly blend with the custom white cabinetry adorned with gold hardware. Completing the main level, a ground floor bedroom is perfect for visiting friends or family or used as a home office. There is also a full bathroom with lovely blue and white patterned tile flooring and beadboard wainscoting.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and the second full bathroom. The gable roof line adds character to the bedrooms with delightful out coves framing the charming neighborhood views. Adding to the symmetry of the home, dual walk-in closets are positioned on opposite wings of the second floor, providing ample storage space. The shared hall bathroom exudes style with white and black mosaic tile floor and subway tile over the tub/shower.

The rear yard is a peaceful retreat. An inviting gazebo is a wonderful place to enjoy a cool evening. An assortment of roses and shrubs surround the lush lawn area. Bistro lights create the perfect ambiance for outdoor enjoyment. A small gardening area provides an opportunity to cultivate fresh produce.

The oversized detached, two-car garage sits at the end of the long driveway, providing ample off street parking and additional storage.

This convenient location and charming home is located on one of the most desirable streets in the area. The extra wide street with handsome palm trees on the roundabouts offer a view into the classic style of this picturesque neighborhood conveniently located to downtown San Jose and highways 280, 680 and 87.
