A bougainvillea-lined drive and hand-crafted double gate welcome you to a private and secluded Belmont Heights Hacienda. This dramatic open-concept home with soaring wood-beamed ceilings can’t wait to meet you! In 2003 the current owner took this 1932 home down to the studs and added square footage: Electrical, plumbing, slab work, enlarging and re-envisioning the upstairs with the addition of master suite and expansive wrap-around balcony patio. The professional chef’s kitchen is perfect for casual entertaining and serious cooking! It boasts top-end appliances, Wolfe 6-burner stove, grill and storage, double commercial refrigerator. There’s a large central island of polished concrete with prep sink, warming drawer and seating.
