Property Description

A little bit of magic on the corner of Mulberry and Magnolia – this 4/2 home with a fireplace in the main home and a separate 24′ x 12′ permitted studio with beautiful original details, like the Santa Margarita fossil stone wood-burning gas fireplace and vintage light fixtures. The studio, with toilet, sink, and plumbed with a shower drain, has functioned as an art studio, office, guest cottage, and music studio. New relaxed Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) laws make this property perfect for potential rental income. A permit has been issued to install the necessary additional plumbing to create a shower. The City of Arroyo Grande can advise on what would be required to add a stove. In the main house, the kitchen has oak cabinetry with pull-out drawers so you can easily access whatever you need. The stainless-steel dishwasher and fridge are both new in 2022. You’ll love the pergola view from the kitchen sink. In fact, every room has views of trees, hills, or the garden. Crafted in the studio by the previous owner, the dining room built-in buffet with pass-through from the kitchen showcases stained glass cabinet doors. Wood floors and built-in under-window storage further enhance the spacious dining room. It opens to an English cottage garden California-style, complete with the cottage/studio and eco-friendly features. All exits have sturdy screen doors with yale locks that allow you to bring the outdoor air in while keeping insects out and maintaining security. On one of the neighborhood’s largest corner lots. The eco-friendly property has a mulched garden with drought-tolerant plants and year-round blooms. You’ll also enjoy the lavender, rosemary, and Meyer lemon, orange, grape, apple, grapefruit, Asian persimmon, and pineapple guava trees in the garden. The washing machine is plumbed to direct gray water to the front garden. The backyard and both sides can be accessed for RV parking. The oversized 2-car garage also has built-in cabinets. Solar panels reduced the seller’s electricity bill to just $55/month (plus lease), and with water collectors at the downspouts, sprinklers, overhead, and drip irrigation, you can save even more on your water bill – the seller pays $80-95/mo. Plus, extra attic insulation ensures that this home is energy efficient year-round.
