Welcome to this 2013 custom-built home on a cul-de-sac in the desirable Southwood neighborhood of Torrance on an extra-large lot! The inviting front porch of this modern craftsman-style property welcomes you as you enter through the front door. The entry way is spacious and bright and flows into the open-concept living room seamlessly. This space offers elevated coffered ceilings and a wall of French doors that overlook the grassy yard allowing for a sense of openness and natural light. Guests can enjoy dining from the bar top of the kitchen, or from the dining room, all of which have a view of the tranquil greenery. The kitchen was well-thought out with custom finishes that any chef would appreciate; all stainless steel Viking appliances, granite countertops, custom cabinetry, plenty of storage, and ample counter space. The main level also features 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom, separate laundry room, powder room for guests, plus an office adjacent to the kitchen ideal for the modern demands of work-from-home life. The property sits on a sprawling 8,187 sqft lot, with a backyard designed for entertaining. Enjoy the large patio with enough space to bbq and dine al fresco, mature landscaping, green lawn, built-in fire pit, and a romantic outdoor spa under the pergola. The park-like backyard also boasts avocado, fig and persimmon trees. The second story of this home features a spacious primary retreat, complete with views of the Palos Verdes hillside, a sizable walk-in closet, a secondary walk-in closet, dual sinks, soaking jacuzzi tub, heated bathroom floors, and a large fully enclosed shower room with two independently operable shower heads. Down the hall is the 4th bedroom and another full bathroom. Other special features and upgrades include central vacuum unit with convenient deposits upstairs and downstairs, newer epoxy floors in the garage, an electric vehicle charger, solar panels, and generous storage space. Upgrades include fresh paint throughout, newer light fixtures, custom window treatments, heating and air conditioning, smart home abilities, surround sound, and a security system.
