    Description

    It wasn't long ago, in a time called the mid-century, when couples bought their dream home, then spent years together dreaming of and building their castle - no detail too small, no convenience overlooked. The first time on the market in over 60 years, this home is one of those legendary castles telling the story of a life well lived and ready to write the next chapter for the new stewards of The Walnut House. Stepping into the barreled ceiling living room, the impressive woodwork in solid-walnut, tongue & groove paneling line the living room gas log fireplace wall and is open to the formal dining room. Off the living room, step down into spacious den with real stone, wood burning fireplace and the walls covered with the same rich panels of walnut and separated from the kitchen by an eat at bar. The beautiful and sparkling beveled, leaded-glass, walnut framed doors open from the den onto a glass enclosed garden room with wood-burning stove overlooking the back gardens. The kitchen and full-service butler pantry host warm walnut cabinets and stained glass, upper cabinet doors. Two stove tops, two ovens, one prep sink and one full sink and long expansive counter tops make the area a perfect staging of any party or small intimate meals in the garden room. So many details in each of the rooms that speak to a gracious life and a home set up for entertaining. The Primary Bedroom suite is huge opening onto a private spa room with hot tub overlooking the garden. The multiple closets are cedar lined with classic bathroom features matching the period. Two other rooms and additional bath make this castle an ideal environment for work-from-home or additional subjects to comfortably reside. Gracious, mature plantings & gardens with extensive drip irrigation create a quiet and cooling outdoor environment. Just a few steps to the Chandler Bike Path, walkable to shopping and convenient to trains, planes and studios this is just too lovely a property to miss. Come take a look then imagine your castle here in The Walnut House.
