Welcome home to a unique property rich in history and overflowing with charm. This mid-century orchard-style home was the first house built within the development of what used to be the Lovoi family walnut orchard, dating back to the turn of the century. Today this property features a main house with 3-bedrooms, 2.5-bathrooms, and a full basement. Plus, a detached two-car garage, and an accessory dwelling unit offering an additional bedroom and bathroom located in what used to be the orchard water tower. Inside the main house, remnants of this home’s rich past are still found within the interior finishes, such as the craftsman-style fireplace, beveled living room ceiling, oak hardwood flooring, and original single-pane front windows. Blending comfort with charm, the kitchen has been totally updated and features quartz countertops with decorative subway tiled backsplash, modern stainless steel appliances, shaker-style cabinetry, and tile flooring. Additionally, the bathrooms have also been updated with luxurious marble-tile accents and modern vanities. All bedrooms are well-sized, including the privately located master suite. A convenient indoor laundry room, as well as a half bathroom, are located just past the kitchen. Accessible through the living room, as well as from the third bedroom, the backyard invites all-seasons entertaining on the rear brick patio highlighted by a hand-laid brick fireplace and surrounded by beautiful mature landscaping and fruit trees. The water tower now supports multigenerational living, or long-stay guests within its tri-level layout featuring a ground floor laundry and storage room, second-level kitchen and bathroom, and third-level bedroom offering serene views over the neighborhood. Located in Willow Glen, a popular commuter-friendly neighborhood in central San Jose well known for its rich history, residents are in close proximity to its charming downtown shopping district lined with cafes, coffee shops, and small boutiques.
