The builder Allen Stamm and designer/artist Hope Wiley were friends and they collaborated on this home for the Wiley family in 1941. Since that time this Escalante house has had only two owners. This truly loved home has wonderful lighting in part from the classic sliding glass door you see opposite the entry, drawing you to the backyard where a towering Spruce tree sets the mood. The lawn continues into a flower bed featuring, from the Wilford Gallery, a "Double Spinner" wind sculpture. Beneath a covered trellis of Virginia Creeper is a slider you can relax on in the calm of any season. One of the nice features is the multipurpose room. It is large enough to be a generous owner's suite with a private bath and fireplace. Perhaps you would rather have a family room complete with a hidden cupboard and hide-away projector compartment. The separate studio/shop off the carport/driveway comes with 220v so if you are a potter you can fire up your own kiln. Perhaps you are a painter, photographer, silversmith, the space is perfect with a workbench, lots of shelving, tool space on the wall with lighting and heating plus a window looking out onto the backyard. The property is located about a mile from the plaza, even closer to the railyard and farmer's market, Trader Joe's with various surrounding shops...and numerous restaurants/cafes. And, in the other direction from the house, it is less than 1 mile to hospital and medical facilities.
