Connecticut in Sherman Oaks

Charm, yard, schools, room to grow, room for a pool, and move in ready.

Our newest listing in Sherman Oaks checks all the boxes above and then some. Rarely do we list a home that has been owned by the same owners for an extended period of time that is truly move-in-ready. This gem has been owned by a designer for the past 38 years, and boasts some of the most intricate detailing and thoughtful renovation I’ve ever seen.  That said, it has a very strong point of view–we call it “connecticut county’.  When buyers walk in and they either immediately connect with house and love it OR they walk right out (most people are falling hard for this one).  Here are a few of my favorite details:

Living Room: Pitched roof with exposed beams are such a wow when you walk in.  The floor is made from a combination of antique terra-cotta tiles and picket fence (!). It’s not something you would pick out of a flooring store and is so unique and perfect for the space.



The Kitchen: I’m just gonna say it–it’s literally the best kitchen i’ve ever seen in this price range.  It is pure perfection from the double farm sink, to the paneled refrigerator, to the timeless tile choices, to the picture window that looks out onto the back yard.

The Yard: This yard works for both kids and adults.  With plenty of room for kids to run and dig, and climb, plus room for a pool, and multiple patio areas for entertaining and al fresco dining.
