Welcome to 865 Contra Costa, this John Hudson Thomas design circa 1917, is a well- appointed grand home located just a short jaunt from the many restaurants, shopping, and grocery stores that Solano Avenue has to offer. This beauty is a 4 bedroom* house with multiple bonus rooms. This home has a lovely living room and sitting area that has a beautiful view of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. The kitchen has room for a breakfast nook, and a sweet decorative fireplace. An elegant dining room with built-ins and French doors that open to a courtyard that is loaded with mature plantings, and guarded by the embrace of mature wisteria that adorns the entry way. There are two large- sized bedrooms on the main floor just past the dining room. The stairs to the second floor lead to a second bathroom, and a third bedroom. The main or fourth bedroom has the potential to be used several ways. As a main suite, it would have a large sitting room, ample closet, a generously- sized bedroom, and a separate room that might possibly be developed into a third bathroom** in the suite.
The outdoor space is designed for maximum enjoyment. The front yard has a deck above the garage to relax and enjoy the sun and bountiful succulents abound. The path leading to the entrance is shaded and opens to an inviting brick courtyard. The backyard has a combination of filtered and direct sunlight. This is truly a special house with loads of yesteryear charm!
