4458 Matilija Avenue, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423 (MLS # 23250909)
You may have driven by and wondered what lies beyond those gates...Welcome to your enchanting, modern craftsman home on Matilija, a tree-lined avenue oft favored for strolls, in the heart of Sherman Oaks. Enter through the artisan wrought-iron gate, past the blooming magnolias to the front door. Immediately you are taken by the details and quality of workmanship associated with Arts and Crafts architecture. Note the crown moldings, oak bookcases, and stained glass. The main floor includes a spacious formal living room with wood-burning fireplace, formal dining room, powder and kosher kitchen that opens to family/TV room overlooking the pool and large yard. The second floor consists of a substantial primary suite with wood-burning fireplace, ensuite bath plus several closets, and two guest rooms with jack-and-jill bath. A wonderful surprise awaits you on the third floor, a great-room with vaulted ceiling, wood-burning fireplace and doorway to the rooftop lookout deck, a secluded alcove. Not to be missed is a basement with walk-in wine cellar. The 11,491 square foot lot is filled with a variety of specimen trees, including Navel and Valencia orange, Mexican key limes, and Floss Silk. Enjoy the serenity of the large koi pond with soothing waterfall. Have a swim in your large Pebble tec pool or relax in your hot tub, outdoor shower or dry sauna. And finish with breakfast/lunch under the shade of the pergola. A separate structure includes a true 1-bedroom guest house with bath, living room, and chef's kitchen with Cesar Stone countertops and Wolf appliances. As well, there's an office with separate entrance and an attached finished garage, perfect for those who work from home. As you explore the yard you will notice custom-designed, hand-forged wrought-iron accents installed throughout the property by celebrated artist David Shelton, adding a unique touch of elegance and charm. While inspired by the early 20th century structure originally brought to this site (by mules!), the existing home was re-built from scratch in 1996 resulting in its many modern amenities and systemic upgrades not typically found in older craftsman homes: soft-water, reverse osmosis filtration, dual-pane windows, and a solar hot water system for the pool. Additionally, it's located within the boundaries of Dixie Canyon Charter's school district. A taste of Pasadena, in Sherman Oaks!
