An iconic property in the artisan town of Los Alamos. Built in 1883 by Captain Perkins, this home is noted by locals to be the second oldest home in town. The home has been enjoyed as a 2-bedroom and also as a 3-bedroom, + office. Through the main entry you feel right at home with the cozy brick fireplace, high ceilings, and the warmth of the original wood floors, which resonate with character of this home's historic age. The downstairs bathroom is incredibly charming with its vintage classic black and white design and features a cast iron clawfoot bathtub. The side porch area brings the outside in while relaxing and allowing the cool breeze to come through on a summer evening. This corner lot is incredibly private, fully fenced perimeter with two sides of the property hedged by tall, matured privets Enjoy the lush lawns, garden beds, watch the wisteria bloom across the pergola in early spring, and admire the gnarled pepper tree which is said to be the oldest in all of Los Alamos. Designed with entertainment in mind, there are several outdoor gathering areas, decks, play spaces, and best of all, the exterior detached structure can be used as a yoga meditation space, office, art studio, wine room, or whatever your heart desires, and the detached garage offers possibilities for future ADU. Los Alamos is surrounded by vineyards, farms, and ranches and offers incredible hospitality. Live like you're on vacation in this sweet town just north of Los Olivos.
