Located in the coveted Miraleste Pines neighborhood of San Pedro, a 2nd owner mid-century modern home designed by renowned architect Edward Fickett. Current owners have spent over $100K sensitively renovating the house with the intent of staying long term, however a job opportunity out of state has facilitated a move. Fickett's detailing is evident throughout: his signature open kitchen, extended trellises that play with shade and light, the well organized layout, massive fireplace hearth, playful pops of color, and walls of glass at every turn. Together these features make for an inspiring space, and one that feels more spacious than a traditional home of nearly twice it's size. In the newly reconfigured kitchen: a vast workspace of quartz countertops upon resurfaced/restored original cabinetry, with Porcelanosa tile backsplash & all new top of the line appliances. Solid 3/4" maple flooring has been laid from the living areas on into bedrooms, which share the same voluminous ceilings and window walls that take in views of private gardens. Well sited on it's 8,852 SF lot, the property has areas both sunny and shaded, with room for entertaining, play, and relaxation. Extensive recent updates include full copper plumbing, new electrical service panel, tankless water heater, concrete block and cedar retaining walls, hardscape, landscape, drainage, and much more. Adjacent to the hiking trails and dramatic ocean views of Friendship park, in a close knit community with great schools both public and private, and nearby to many fine restaurants, shops and other amenities.
