Thursday Three Hundred Pitch-It-Out-of-The-BallPark-Yu-Darvish, Original Owner Classic Merriman Park Mid Century

Published April 12, 2012 by Candy Evans

1964 was a very good year, I remember it well. That was the year this “darling” home at 6856 Blackstone was born in Merriman Park.  Looking at that furniture reminds me of the house we had when I was a baby, and oh can’t you just tell that this is an original owner home? Designed by architect Harry Hoover, the home features long sleek lines, walls of glass, original cypress CYPRESS!!! paneling, and the typical flexible open floor plan: TV dinner in the kitchen or living room? The home engages the gently sloping site as a split level while creating outdoor living spaces. Technically, there are 3 bedrooms, but two additional potential bedrooms on the 2nd floor share an adjacent closet, unusual, usually it’s the Jack and Jill bathroom they share. 2848 square feet, she’s a good size. Three bedrooms, three and a half baths, a study, clerestory windows, A-line ceiling, but is that corner freestanding fireplace original? And good news: there is a two car garage, a real one, not a carport, rear detached. Asking $392,500, she just squeezes in this category, but oh my, are we not so glad she did? Special thanks to Michael Holmberg of Darling Homes for sending this pup my way!
