Gentle hills surround you on all sides. A community swimming pool lays at your feet. The trailhead just beyond the pool beckons. Hyman Minkoff knew what he was doing when he developed this area known as Oakmont Woods in the mid fifties, naming each street after one of his four daughters. Eilinita was named after his daughter Eileen. Sit a spell in your backyard and gaze at the protected wilderness, owned by the Santa Monica Conservancy. It will never be developed. This well cared for ranch house has hardwood floors throughout. The remodeled kitchen has granite counters, porcelain double sink, custom wood cabinets including a pantry cabinet, stainless steel Frigidaire fridge and dishwasher, 4-burner range with hood vent, and oven. There’s a skylight overhead for natural light. Off to the side is an informal dining area that flows easily through the sliding doors and out onto the covered patio for al fresco dining. The living room/dining area is spacious with a raised brick hearth fireplace. Behind that is a family room with soaring ceiling that has wood paneling, exposed beams and ceiling fan. There’s a second raised hearth brick fireplace and sliding glass doors to the backyard. The wall facing the woods is practically all glass providing an indoor/outdoor feel. Down the hallway are the four ample-sized bedrooms, all newly painted with ceiling fan, good-sized closets with overhead cabinets and plenty of windows for natural light. One remodeled, newly painted bathroom has a shower over the tub with new sliding shower door, granite counter and framed mirror. The other newly painted remodeled bathroom has a stand alone shower with new sink. The hallway has 2 linen closets. The 2-car garage is attached and has the laundry area, a workbench, plenty of storage shelves and loft storage. The backyard is fully enclosed, grassy and landscaped with a flagstone patio area for morning coffee. There are peach trees, roses and a grand Azalea bush. On the side is a 6-person hot tub. There is a lower level perfect for a garden. The front yard provides a flat grassy area and attractive landscaping. This home includes double pane windows and whole house fan. It’s situated on a cul de sac, is near Montrose and 210 freeway and includes award winning La Crescenta schools. A special home at a special location awaits!
