The garage is separated into two separate, but connecting garages – a 3 car garage and a 2 car garage. Plenty of built-in cabinetry and a loft above for additional storage.
Special care was taken when this home was constructed to reinforce it with sheer paneling for extra earthquake protection, silent floors and a light composite roof.
This home truly has to be seen to be appreciated. A wonderful opportunity to own a house of your dreams!
