On a quiet street in Barron Park, one block from Barron Park Elementary and two blocks from Cornelius Bol Park, is an alluring property with majestic deciduous trees and lush landscaping with a pathway leading to the front door of a contemporary, two-story residence.
Entirely rebuilt in 2005, 730 Josina Avenue’s airy floor plan features a grandiose great room soaring two levels high and a wall of windows showcasing the backyard’s verdant surroundings. Honoring the chefs in the family, the sky-lit kitchen has ample counter space, open shelves and a suite of top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the main level of the home, including a private suite that easily accesses the back yard. Upstairs, the privately situated primary suite has a customized walk-in closet and spacious en suite bathroom. A balcony connects the primary suite to a private office/library that overlooks the great room.
The home boasts bamboo flooring, newly carpeted stairs and bedroom suites, tiled bathrooms, premier stone countertops, recessed and track lighting, plank and open beam ceilings, dual-pane windows and doors and a dramatic balcony overlook.
Barron Park is a semi-rural, dog-loving, family-friendly neighborhood with eclectic architecture styles, lots of charm and a strong sense of community that goes back to its origins. Once hayfields, strawberry fields and an early settlement for Silicon Valley engineers, this independently minded community is sought after for its more laid-back lifestyle, local schools and proximity to Downtown Los Altos and California Avenue.
