Upstairs presents additional communal spaces that can easily double as home offices. There’s also a second fireplace and generously sized bedrooms, each with a different, delightful view from high atop the neighborhood below. The romantic master bedroom suite has an exquisite bathroom, large walk-in closet, Jacuzzi tub and a balcony. Situated on an over 9200 square foot lot in the coveted Castle Heights Elementary School District, with convenient access to downtown, the beach and nearby Expo line, this is a very special home that is akin to visiting an eclectic gallery. It’s effortless to appreciate it not just for the art it contains, but for the home that it is.
