Here, oversize black and white checkered floors and refurbished vintage cabinets and paired with a GE Artistry series range, microwave and dishwasher and complementing Fisher & Paykel fridge, while the butcher block countertops have an inset soapstone that serves as a drying rack or trivet. A sweet powder room is tucked off to the side behind a pocket door, and just off the opposite side of the kitchen is this block+GGs best-kept secret: a walkway that opens into a large garden with a cedar plank Trombe wall+GGa passive solar design strategy+GGmature tree for shade, planting beds and cozy hangout space. The speakeasy vibe is completed by the fact that your VIP guests can enter directly from the outside via a gated breezeway with string lights to guide the way. In addition to the private outdoor space, there+GGs a community garden a few doors down, where you can even grab some veggies for dinner. Upstairs the massive front bedroom features a lofted ceiling, gooseneck barn light sconces, two exposures via front and rear windows, and a full wall of closets with custom systems. The rear bedroom is also good-sized and also has two exposures and a cool industrial-style built-in wardrobe.
