130 Avenida Dr
This serene place, with filtered bay views and green vistas, was once owned by Huston Smith, the powerful philosophy professor and seeker. The property is now owned by another deep thinker, and you can see why: the home is perfect for quiet meditiation and relaxation. It's a virtual retreat from the chaos of daily life. The main level of the home is open, airy and bright and features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The living room/dining room combination is large and the Chef's kitchen boasts a superb center island and an eat-in breakfast area that looks out onto a delightful patio. Close to Tilden park and a commuter's dream, this home is a beautiful place for beautiful minds and hearts.
