Sitting on almost half an acre in the heart of the Uplifters Rustic Canyon the original shingled cottage named Oak Shadows has evolved into a stately residence with aspects of a Hollywood style Chateau d'Amboise. The current house offers a stately living room centered around a quintessential canyon river rock fireplace, the kitchen, a formal dining room, and a gracious den that opens to the flat back yard and pool area. Above, the main bedroom suite sits, with views of the canyon, includes a large walk in closet and an adjacent library/office or flex space. The adjacent wing of the main floor includes another living room, open kitchen, and two bedrooms plus three baths. A two car garage plus quarters for the housekeeper and chauffeur, that were later added, are part of the whole. The front gardens are magical and the back yard offers a spacious lawn and pool on this street to street corner lot. This is truly a rare opportunity to realize your own vision a block from Rustic Canyon Park between the Santa Monica Mountains, State Beach, and Canyon elementary school.
