The story of 717 Grosvenor Place
This Crocker Highlands Traditional maintains 1930s-era grace while it integrates rejuvenated bathrooms, kitchen, and extension-of-the-home outdoor-living space. Dark-stained hardwood floors set a glamorous tone throughout boldly proportioned public rooms and three upper-level bedrooms. Formal living room and entertain-in kitchen bask in garden outlooks, merging visually and physically via glass doors with deck and terrace.
Grosvenor Place presents quintessential Crocker Highlands cachet and convenience. Stow the car in the attached garage and walk or bike along scenic streets to neighborhood schools plus Lakeshore and Park Boulevard’s unique cafes, shopping, and recreation. Or roll out of the home’s attached garage and take advantage of handy highway access.
Perfect symmetry distinguishes the home’s façade as well as its address. A covered entry porch at midpoint gives way to a center-hall interior arrangement. It offers a gracious flow from foyer to airy living and dining rooms, outlined decoratively with moldings and ceiling detail and appointed with glass expanses that amplify light and visual space.
Living-room walls dominated by glass bookend the room, which features a statement-piece fireplace. Millwork accentuating its mantle, dentil molding flanked by fluted columns, reiterates on the staircase’s columned post. A dining-room highlight, the built-in hutch intermixes glass-front cabinets suspended over a built-in sideboard with drawers and display shelves. It supplies at-the-ready storage for tabletop items as well as an elegant bar and buffet area.
Conducive to gathering, the kitchen comprises a large layout, a peninsula with seating at its heart. It allows the chef to interact with guests while using the five-burner induction-heat cooktop. Subtle earth tones of natural-stone counters and flooring add to the visual connection with the outdoors that glass doors invite in and to which they offer seamless flow. Step directly to hardscaping that includes a broad dining deck, curvaceously connected to a lounging terrace that extends from the living room. Beyond both, a stretch of lawn meets a treed backdrop that includes a towering Redwood.
The second floor offers a separation from public space to three bedrooms including the master suite. Natural-stone surfaces in soothing neutrals harmonize throughout hall and master bathrooms, plus main-floor powder room, creating cohesion. The master suite contains a configured closet plus another within the combined dressing room-master bathroom, a dynamic space animated by triangular windows and endowed with separate toilet chamber, double-sink vanity, and accent-adorned glass shower.
