The story of 964 Grosvenor Place

Graced with Mediterranean allure circa 1930, this widely remodeled Crocker Highlands home reflects a consummate combination of preservation and renovation. Original characteristics shine while the seamlessly reconfigured layout integrates a transformed master suite, professional-caliber kitchen that flows to radiant family room plus garden with deck terrace, and lower-level living space adjoining an expanded garage. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom plus powder room composition includes formal living and dining rooms comprising stately proportions and architectural cachet.

Grosvenor Place unites a picturesque setting with coveted convenience. Lined with mature trees, vintage street lamps, and distinguished period architecture, this walkable neighborhood puts vibrant shopping, dining, recreation of Grand-Lake and Park Boulevard hubs, plus highly rated schools, within a scenic stroll. Highway access and transportation options also exist in wonderfully close proximity.

A façade with flair, terra cotta tiles adorn the roof, accentuated by a tower formation and overhanging bracketed eaves. Soaring windows include a trio inset with spiral columns establishing an arch motif tying to the wrought-iron-embellished entry. It opens to a broad foyer revealing honey-hued hardwood flooring and a dynamic floorplan of grand, light-infused spaces. Floor-to-ceiling windows meet subtly coved ceilings in living and dining rooms. Rounded fanlights top those living room windows, while tall casement windows frame a regal gas fireplace. Wall speakers and floor outlets add inconspicuous functionality. The dining room’s divided-light glass doors open to a balcony with retractable awning, a cherished al fresco dining perch.

An alternative entry, the multi-car garage leads directly to the interior, with a straight path up the staircase to the triple-skylight family room and kitchen. In the kitchen, an elegant aesthetic complements wall-to-wall efficiency. Stainless appliances include Viking double ovens and six-burner cooktop topped by a Thermador hood with warming element, Fisher-Paykel two-drawer dishwasher, wine refrigerator, and more. Cabinetry, custom crafted by Mueller Nicholls, intermixes ergonomic drawer storage plus butler’s pantry. Extra-deep Carerra marble counters, ideal for pastry prep, meet mossy-hued subway-tile backsplashes. Flanked by windowed seating areas, a banquette forms a bright gathering spot; a garden-view alcove is well suited for a desk.

The multi-chamber master suite features a dressing room with elaborate built-ins augmented by two more closets. Endowed with a soaking tub plus glassed shower, the master bath is clad in a cream-colored tile scheme including basket-weave floor tile. Within the master bedroom, library shelves fringe a rose-garden outlook, and a desk is set in a windowed alcove.

On the lower level, two bedrooms are served by a bathroom with separate shower and toilet chambers. Storage and utility abounds: wine and laundry rooms, a garage workshop area plus storage room, ideal for recreation equipment. The home’s upgraded infrastructure incorporates a French drain system, extensive window replacements, and reconstructed chimney.
