Historic Greystone Manor located just steps to downtown, on two lots, underwent an extensive $2.2 million renovation in 2011, creating a modern, elegant and incredibly well equipped family home. Also referred to as The Clark Norton House, it was the largest home in San Luis Obispo when built in 1906 at 4,500 square feet, and was the home of two San Luis Obispo Mayors; Elmer Clark and Thomas Norton in the early 1900s. The main home features 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, a traditional living and dining room, a family/TV room, a dedicated office or 4th bedroom, a library, a sun room, a modern kitchen, and a full work out & game room on the third level. Every detail of this home was meticulously planned and executed by Holland and Knapp construction including the unique lighting fixtures created in the style of the early 1900's with an authentic kerosine light in the family room circa 1910. The tiles in the kitchen circa 1910-1930's were hand picked and came from all over the world. So many details in this home including a hidden cellar under the window seat in the kitchen, a hidden bathroom in the garage/bonus room behind the wet bar, and the original wiring "artwork" piece in the hallway from the kitchen to the library. The home was designed for entertaining with sliding glass doors opening from the main house and the garage/dedicated playroom, creating an expansive open air environment with an easy flow from both the main house and garage with ample parking for up to 8 cars in the driveway. The guest unit above the garage features 2 bedrooms, a loft, living room with fireplace, kitchen, 2 full baths and 2 decks with gorgeous views of Cerro San Luis and Bishop's Peak. The property offers incredible privacy, sitting well above the street, providing a sense of seclusion while also being in the heart of San Luis Obispo's Historic District.
