Adolphus Busch of Anheuser-Busch Brewery and his wife, Lily, opened the Busch Gardens of America in 1906. Sited in the Arroyo Seco, the botanical marvel included small lakes, geysers, walkways, and many species of birds all surrounded by the natural beauty of the Arroyo. The gardens remained opened until 1938 when the area was subdivided into housing. Some 110 years later, remnants of the gardens remain and the beauty of the Arroyo is more splendid than ever.
Located in the former lower gardens is 1140 Busch Garden Court. Built in 1951, this mid-century is prominently situated on a slight bend in the road facing west towards the Arroyo. Over the years, the home has been transformed and updated resulting in a spacious and open floor plan of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Through the entry is the living room and the center of the home. On one side are the three bedrooms and on the other is the kitchen, dining room, sitting area, and access to the garage. The living room is bright and large and features a fireplace and multiple French doors and windows to the rear patio and front yard. The front two bedrooms are nicely sized and offer a full bathroom in between. The master suite is located in the rear of the home and includes large closets, its own full bathroom, and another set of French doors to the rear yard. Substantially remodeled prior to the owners tenure, the kitchen offers ample wood cabinets, granite countertops, and professional grade appliances. There is also a breakfast bar that faces the dining area with yet another set French doors and windows.
The front yard has been beautifully landscaped and maintained with an assortment of plants and flowers. The rear yard offers a brick patio and Busch Garden era stone retaining walls and walkways. At the top of the yard is another concrete sitting area with wonderful views of the Arroyo and direct access to Arroyo Blvd. A few additional features of note include an attached two car garage, laundry room, and central heating and air conditioning. A great opportunity for a very fortunate buyer!
