64 Mercedes Way

Beautifully set back atop an arching front garden and overlooking a lushly landscaped and peaceful rear yard awash in natural color, this home sits on an oversized lot and welcomes it’s new owners to create a vision of their own with historic ties to its 100 year past.
Constructed around 1917, the home was purposefully designed to welcome in an abundance of light through every room and to provide ample and graceful living spaces fit for a growing family…yet with fine attention to the exquisite wood craftsmanship throughout.
Copious amounts of finely honed detail abound in the expansive living and dining rooms, warmed with washed light from the western and southwestern exposures over Mercedes Way. Original built-in hutches and cabinets are finely tuned and exhibit exceptional care over the past century of living. The delightful breakfast room off the rear gardens provides a peaceful place for contemplation and soft morning light while enjoying a multitude of mature plantings dappled in sunlight. Adjacent, the expansive kitchen and walk-in pantry provide plenty of space for entertaining while cooking and offer a glimpse to the expansive dining room for a touch of connectedness when desired.
The upper level hosts three bedrooms and a captivating western facing sunroom with stunning views over the winding neighborhood and beyond to the Pacific Ocean. An attached sun-deck provides even more expansive outlooks and a place to capture a sunny glint off the ocean beyond. The master bedroom sits to the rear of the home overlooking the gardens and landscapes beyond and benefits from soft morning light through the clerestory window above. The 2nd bedroom is complete with en-suite bath and the third bedroom doubles as a sizable home office.
The expansive and bright lower level is perfect for a game room, TV lounge or other play space and features an attached bedroom and bath plus it’s own private side entry.
A detached 2-car side-by-side garage (in need of structural repair) completes this wonderfully gracious and unique property. Come create your own vision of living at 64 Mercedes on this magical Ingleside Terrace block!
