A Stately Home in Jordan Park

April 18, 2011

I forgot the rest of the movie, but the characters motivating goal of residing in “a stately home,” has stuck with me…  Crimes were committed, hearts were broken, and, in the end, they get the house.  My kind of movie.  (Turns out the movie is Shooting Fish, 1997.)

Fifty Five Palm is the kind of stately home that could motivate a person.  This 1915 seven bedroom, six and 1/2 bath completely remodeled home is stunning.  Even on the dimmest day, the fact that it’s fully detached with huge windows means it’s filled with light.  The interior is painted with colorful personality and decorated to match.  French doors open onto a a walk-out garden with south/west exposure from the kitchen/family/dining room… And all done so well you don’t really notice that the floor plan has been adapted from it’s original design.

Jordan Park is an elegant well-located neighborhood bordered by Arguello on the west, California on the north, Spruce on the east and Geary on the south.  Close to the foot of Clement and to Laurel Village as well as Sacramento Street.

In a house full of thoughtful details, my two favorites were the his and hers walk in closets.  Check out the pictures!  Another nice one was that the upstairs hall bathroom has a subtle mural of the Hawaiian Islands painted on the floor.

Asking price:  $4,198,000.  Listed by Carrie Buchanan-Goodman and Lisa Miller of Paragon Real Estate Group.  Check out the pictures and more details here.
