Welcome to Kneale Park--a historic estate that is the only one of its stature available in the idyllic University Heights. This Spanish Colonial revival home offers amenities galore, including breathtaking daytime coastal views and a show of bay fireworks at night. The stately 5-bed/3-bath home, built in 1905 by construction magnate Thomas Kneale, boasts original hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, historic light fixtures, and large, picturesque windows. The gourmet kitchen features SS appliances and easy access to sunroom, laundry, BBQ, and wine cellar. The foyer opens to spacious dining, living and family rooms. A large and luxurious master suite features an oversized bathroom, with stone shower with body sprays and a Roman soaking tub. Remodeled, custom-finished closets in all bedrooms and casita attic space offer ample storage. Situated on .54 acres, this walled, private compound is perfect for entertaining with its ample yard and patios, in-ground heated pool and spa, a waterfall koi pond, herb and rose gardens, fruit trees, aviary, play structure, and parking for multiple cars and RV/boat. A 1-bed/1-bath apartment above the front 4-car garage, and the Spanish casita, with a second 3-car garage and attached home office/gym space, offer the potential for rental income, guest accommodations and work-from-home.
