Description

SELLER IS ACCEPTING BACKUP OFFERS. This rare mid century-era (1957) Magnesia Falls Cove property, with its oversized lot, double mountain views, and resort-like backyard, represents a lot of value. It has broad and unusual features that are easily adaptable to multiple uses, with special appeal for people who love the outdoors or to entertain. The 2,252-square-foot house a 3/3, including an attached 1/1 casita with a kitchen AND an additional separate, freestanding potential casita (which could also be a studio/office, etc. behind the main house). This home has a front yard that features desert landscape and gorgeous mountain views, and dual pedestrian gates on either side of the home, custom made in Mexico. We'll save the stunning backyard for last. First, step inside the foyer of the 2/2 main house and into the living room area anchored by a mid century style slump stone fireplace below the wood vaulted ceiling. Note the fun, efficient gourmet kitchen with granite countertops. These common areas provide good distance between the bedrooms. The large master bedroom has French doors that open to majestic views of the Chocolate mountains beyond the pool, and features an en suite bathroom with walk-in shower. The second bedroom is large as is the second bathroom. The laundry and storage area is beyond that, along with another door to the outside and also another door with access to the attached 1-bedroom casita with a kitchen. This 1-bedroom casita with a kitchen is separately metered. It could be used as a longer term rental unit, which recently generated $1,100 a month as part of a 1-year lease. The kitchen in this attached casita has a newer water heater, wall unit A/C, refrigerator and stove. This unit also has its own entrance on the front, and also a back door, fostering privacy. Behind the house is a breezeway and the freestanding potential casita (no bath)/studio/office. This space is currently used as the owner's office and library, but it's near the pool and features a wet bar, and has also served as a fun game and party room. Indeed, it has numerous uses, from an art or music studio. Beyond this freestanding casita sits a custom-built shed. NOW TO THE the truly stunning, expansive backyard and its panoramic views of mountains and valley. This paradise is centered by a large, deep swimming pool and custom paver deck, with a large entertainment patio and living area on the far side of the pool. The Seller added some upgrades, completed in 2018 including resurfacing of the pool, new pavers, and doubling to 24 x 24 the size of the concrete patio on the far side of the pool, and leading gas, water and electric lines to this patio site. It creates the possibility for a gourmet grill or even an outdoor kitchen for the new Owner. Plumbing was also roughed in, allowing for many possibilities. You will want to see this truly rare property.
