UPDATED PIEDMONT BUNGALOW
Thirteen years of top-rated public schools, sports fields, coffee and shopping are just blocks away from this picture perfect single level bungalow nestled on Piedmont’s coveted Palm Drive. Stylishly updated while retaining the charm of the era, this light-filled retreat lives large with spacious public rooms, seamless access to the delightful front and back yards and a detached studio, perfect for an office, gym or play space. Be prepared to fall in love with 132 Palm Drive.
The front entry opens to an inviting living room with recessed lighting, a brick fireplace flanked by built-ins and a serene outlook of the iconic Palm trees that dot the neighborhood. A graceful archway opens to the dining room with similar outlooks and a window seat with clever under-cushion storage.
One of my favorite spaces is the thoughtfully redesigned eat-in kitchen with both counter and bench seating. It is a large open space with a center island, stainless appliances including a five-burner gas range with chimney hood, white shaker door cabinetry and a tile floor. Hidden behind cabinet doors is the stackable washer and dryer. The kitchen opens to the rear flagstone patio for outdoor grilling and dining under the stars.
The three bedrooms and two updated baths include a primary suite with spa-like bath, a door to the rear yard for private access (imagine if you add a hot tub), built-in dresser and walk-in closet.
The grounds include a lush level front lawn for play, a private stone patio and terraced gardens with irrigation. Now is the time to plant your vegetable or herb garden. The detached studio with cathedral ceiling, electricity, windows and French doors is ready for a variety of pursuits. A single car garage completes the residence.
Perfectly situated close to Grand Avenue and Lakeshore shopping districts, public transit and freeway access. With fine Piedmont services a few blocks in one direction and urban conveniences in the other, this location can’t be beat!
