Welcome to 424 5th Street. It sits in the heart of the bullseye for South of the pier flat walk street living. This location offers the coveted convenient access to the beach, the wood chip path, Robinson Elementary School, all of downtown’s shops, cafés, restaurants-including 6 Michelin rated, bars, banks, markets, galleries, Vons grocery store, and the fabulous Metlox development.
The owners completed a brilliantly designed, beautifully executed custom remodel and addition in 2010, with Gary Lane, of Lane Builders. The results are a spectacular floor plan, designed around the second floor open living area with its dramatic vaulted, tongue and groove and painted wood beamed ceilings, and 4 skylights inside and 2 on the terrace that floods natural light throughout the living space. The kitchen is a gourmet chef's dream, with a large stone island with prep sink and garbage disposal, a five burner stainless steel Thermador refrigerator/freezer, cooktop, double ovens, and a dishwasher and a ton of custom cabinetry and storage, with wainscoating above the upper cabinets. An open dining room with its own built in buffet with a stone countertop. The living room has a hardy fireplace and 12 feet of Fleetwood Pocket doors bringing the inside space outside. This unique feature blends the interior living space with the exterior 250sf all-weather covered decking; which has its own built-in BBQ, beverage fridge, outdoor fireplace, flat screen TV setup, stone countertops and seating. It’s a great private space to entertain or just relax on sunny or rainy days. The fourth bedroom suite is on the second floor and there is also a office with a closet and a powder room. The back stairwell is bright and open and is super convenient, going to and from the garage.
The first floor offers, the always relaxing and social, elevated walk street patio, an inviting, vaulted foyer, a gorgeous, primary bedroom suite with custom built-ins, spa-like bathroom suite, with spacious walk in closet, two additional bedrooms, another bathroom, a mudroom/laundry room combo, a really nice outside beach shower and a two car garage.
Buy this home, and get locked into the special feeling of community that this little slice of heaven offers. Park your car on Friday, hang up your keys and walk everywhere and enjoy this vibrant, healthy, fun, and casual beach lifestyle we so cherish and enjoy.
