The exclusive and prestigious Rose Garden neighborhood in San Jose is the location of this beautifully updated and classic home at 1965 University Way.
The single-story home wraps around a spacious courtyard with a mature orange tree, brick outdoor fireplace, lawn and covered patio. The Mid-Century modern-style home features 1,984 square feet with four bedrooms and three bathrooms and has been tastefully updated while retaining the charm of its classic features including redwood beams, and framing and walls of windows. Hardwood floors, multiple built-in cabinetry, new stainless appliances, fresh interior paint and lots of natural light create a wonderful living space.
A studio features a full bathroom, fireplace and kitchenette and is ideal for in-laws, rental or private office space.
The home is ideally located with easy access to commute routes and downtown shopping, however, the tree-lined street provides a tranquil ambience and picturesque neighborhood where neighbors stroll and walk their dog.
The neighborhood’s namesake, San Jose’s Historic Municipal Rose Garden, is about a three-block walk away and the site of an 11-acre park, of which about half is dedicated to more than 4,000 rose plants and 189 varieties. It is also the site for the All-American Rose Selections, an independent rating organization, which sends new varieties to test before they are released to the general public. The gorgeous park at Naglee and Dana Avenues also features towering redwood trees around a natural grass stage.
The Rose Garden, a project of the Santa Clara County Rose Society, was dedicated in 1937 after the city of San Jose’s council voted to set aside half of the acreage for the rose garden. Today it is a beautiful park with a reflection pool, water fountain, and arbor and is also a romantic wedding venue.
The home’s inviting gated entrance opens onto the enchanting courtyard. Throw open the front door and create a seamless indoor-outdoor flow into the entry that is filled with natural light and hardwood floors. Freshly painted crown molding and baseboards complement the exposed beam and vaulted ceiling in the spacious living room. A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows framing the picturesque courtyard and additional side windows allow plenty of natural light into this space and the adjoining dining room. A brick fireplace flanked by a wall of built-in cabinetry anchors the room. Built-in, see-through shelving adds a retro and decorative touch to the dining room that also features a chic chandelier.
The charming eat-in kitchen features new Bosch dishwasher, GE range with stainless backsplash, stainless sink and lots of cabinetry. The casual dining area has a large window framing the view of the backyard gardens and access to the garden.
The backyard is a fully fenced and private space with a mature hedge, fruit trees, lawn, and fenced space ideal for a vegetable garden or children’s play area. The bedroom wing is along a hallway lined with floor-to-ceiling windows and French door access to the courtyard. Three bedrooms are generous in size and feature substantial built-in armoires and shelving. Two bedrooms have French door access to the backyard. One has a walk-in closet. The master bedroom has crown molding, a view of the courtyard, large closet and en suite bathroom. An additional hall bathroom is large and features vintage tile.
The home also features an updated furnace, two-car garage with laundry and new side fencing. The centralized location is near shopping districts, freeway access and within a mile to K-12 schools.
