Above it all -- 52 Graceland Drive, San Rafael, provides an elevated lifestyle for discerning buyers seeking a turnkey home with a modern flair, views, renovated kitchen and baths, emotional appeal, interior new paint, updated systems and plenty of inside/outside space to work and play.
Much of this home is newly renovated and improved. As you enter the home through French Doors, you will immediately sense the natural light and refined, recent touches. New tile in the entry accents the freshly refinished wood floors in the primary living spaces and bedrooms. Stepping down into the family room, a wall of windows brings the San Francisco Bay into view. A mid-century, customizable shelving and storage system has been left in place for the new owners. The open beam ceiling provides excellent scale. The family room features a dining area and a large wood burning fireplace oriented perfectly to enhance the views as you sit fireside.
The newly remodeled kitchen has new counters and backsplash, new cabinetry (with modern pulls and knobs), new appliances, new sink and hardware, new tile flooring and a breakfast area near the sliding door that leads to an outdoor seating area designed for al fresco dining.
There are three sizable bedrooms, each with views. The master suite has two closets and the bathroom was recently updated and includes a step-in shower. There is also a separate entrance into the master bedroom, for flexibility.
The backyard provides plenty of space to relax under the oak trees, enjoying the perennially good weather. Along with the previously mentioned sitting area outside the kitchen, there is an elevated decking structure for a patio set, grassy areas, and a swing - the perfect environment to relax and unwind.
Large 2-car garage with plenty of storage space and enclosed space with cement walls -- perfect for wine cellar or other use. Recently landscaped with irrigation for simple maintenance.
The location provides the best of both worlds, being conveniently within a couple of minutes of downtown San Rafael and yet close to walking trails and nature. This is also an excellent commute location for those heading into San Francisco, the East Bay, or points North, as HWY 101 is easily and quickly accessed.
