An open floor plan provides ease of flow from the living room to the kitchen, allowing everyone to be engaged in conversation while enjoying their activities.  Updated with a discerning eye, the modern touches made to the kitchen create a chef’s haven.  The two bright bedrooms that adorn the home and are ideal retreats when ready to rest your head.  The splendid bathroom shines with sparkling white subway tile and the geometric pattern tiled floor gleams with a contemporary edge.  From the back bedroom, you are able to look out the window at your glorious gardens below.

The tiered backyard beckons your inner gardener and invites your green thumb to be put to use.  Let your imagination run wild, as the possibilities to grow splendid and majestic flowers is endless, considering you have a greenhouse, urban farm style raised planter boxes, and ample space on your multi-level yard.

With working from home being a now prevailing way of life, the bonus room on the lower level, complete with its own bathroom, is an idyllic space. Flourishing in natural light, the airy room is ready to be utilized for all of your stimulating conference calls, or possibly turned in to an amazing studio for the gifted artist.

Chimes Creek is the second of the three streams in Mills College. It is said to get its name in reference to the college’s church bells. The sound would have traveled up the creek bed to the meadows behind Millsmont ridge.

Here’s how it looked to the mapmakers of the U.S. Geological Survey in 1897—it’s represented by the dashed blue line in the middle.   The same patch of land in Google Maps as of today.
