Westshire | Ron Molen
List Price: Sold
Neighborhood: West Valley
Property Profile: 2,334 sq. ft. | 4 bed, 2 bath
Our Opinion: This Ron Molen-designed mid-century modern home happens to have a winning floor plan, and could quite easily be restored to original mid-mod standards. Authentic details like the sunken living room or ‘pit’ [a Ron Molen signature feature], floor-to-ceiling windows, wood paneling, gas fireplace, huge rec-room, and covered front/back porch mean you’re dealing with the perfect entertainer here. Halloween party, anyone? The yard has an apple tree, a sprinkler system, and luscious lawn, and there’s an attached, 462 sq. ft. two-car garage for your parkin’ pleasure. Seated in a neighborhood of tree-lined streets, the timeless brick facade marks the front of the home, and the roof has a 3′ overhang made from rough cut cedar [with recessed canned lighting, to boot]. Re-vamped master bathroom includes a skylight, thick 3/8″ glass shower door, rain shower head, silent automatic moisture sensing fan, heater, composite countertops, and rubbed bronze fixtures. Loads of updates that affect the bones of the home have been completed, as well: the roof was replaced about 9 years ago with 30 year shingles; home has a new 200 Amp. service box; a hot water circulation pump; 99% new plumbing throughout; 80% new electrical throughout. Oh, and there’s a crawl space that allows access to all the pipes; a huge plus, especially with the chilly season coming.
