The large entertainment loft at the top of the stairs is quite impressive. There is room for TVs, treadmills, and toys. The built-in cabinets and bookcases are a great feature as well. The hallways leading to the bedrooms and upstairs bathrooms are wide and open out to multiple loft areas which create fun areas for study or reading books.

The main bedroom is a lovely retreat with a fireplace, large windows bringing in natural light, and closets with custom organizer features. The master bathroom has marble floors, travertine tiles, and upgraded features for added luxury.
Living in Southern California it is important to have outdoor spaces that you can enjoy.
