You'll love this warm, inviting single level home with a light open design featuring vaulted wood open beam ceiling, three skylights and large picture windows looking out to the private, park-like setting! The formal living room with its own fireplace is set apart from the rest of the living space offering a cozy hideaway. An archway opens the view into the hallway. The remodeled kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances opens to the dining area and family room creating a great room effect - all looking out to the beautiful patio and back lawn and garden. Wood frame windows and doors, a brick fireplace in the family room with built-in cabinetry on one side, saltillo tile flooring and high decorator shelving add to the charming character of this home on almost a quarter of an acre in SW Escondido close to Lake Hodges, shopping and freeway access. An additional bedroom & bath were added in the detached garage providing great space for a studio, office, hobby room or add'l quarters (professionally done, but no permit and not included in the sq ft and BR/BA count above). The furnace, air conditioning, and water heater are only approx 3 yrs old. Refrigerator, washer and dryer convey! No HOA fee!
