Behind a tall privet hedge in prime Sherman Oaks, this bright, single-level home combines elements of modern and contemporary design to splendid effect. Vaulted beam ceilings and clerestory windows in the living/dining area fill the home with natural light. Beech wood floors, a two-sided stone fireplace and a wall of windows overlook a deep deck with canyon and hilltop views. The master suite includes an attached sitting room, updated bath and generous closets. Two additional bedrooms share a luxurious full bath. The kitchen, updated with maple cabinetry, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances, includes a breakfast bar and eat-in area. In front, manicured hedges, drought resistant landscaping and stone paths access a private patio. The sloped rear yard is ideally suited for terracing to create stepped gardens or shaded areas for quiet reflection. A bonus workshop beneath the garage is perfect for artist or work-at-home professional. Wonderful location minutes from Westside.
