Sitting proudly on a verdant, 11,000 square foot corner lot in the highly sought after Orange Estates neighborhood, just blocks from coveted Rio Hondo Elementary and Furman Park, this gracious 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom 1960’s gem overflows with character and charm.
Built for the first mayor of Downey, James L. Stamps, and his wife, the generous, well-appointed floorplan is ideal for both grand entertaining and extremely comfortable living. There are cabinets, closets, built-ins, and room for truly everything!
Through the welcoming entry, the bright spacious living room boasts original white oak floors, custom built-in bookcase, handsome fireplace, and impressive bay window. The formal dining room with plantation shutters opens to the large eat-in kitchen with ample storage, adjacent utility room, bathroom and wood-paneled office with separate entrance.
Ideally sited between the kitchen and living room, the family room, with its wall of built-ins, beckons through sliding glass doors to the expansive covered patio, flat grassy yard bordered by blackberry vines, fruit trees, retired fish pond, and an expertly crafted and lit gazebo.
The spacious, private, master retreat with large walk-in closet, plantation shutters, elegant vanity, whimsical tiled bathroom, and patio access, is ideally distanced down a long hallway from the additional two light and airy bedrooms and their vintage, tiled, shared bathroom with double vanity and original crystal light fixtures.
Through the breezeway, past the dutch door that leads to the sizeable driveway and 2-car garage with storage closet, and at the end of a pathway, there is an adjacent bonus bedroom and bathroom with separate entrance just begging to become an art studio or ever popular ADU.
Entertaining in this home is a given, but keeping it all to yourself would be perfectly understandable!
