281 Broad St
San Luis Obispo, CA

Set among majestic Oaks, high on its own private knoll, this timeless 6.7 acre estate in the prestigious Anholm neighborhood features panoramic views of SLO and Edna Valley from Cerro San Luis. A seasonal creek enhances this bucolic setting situated just .7 miles from Mission San Luis Obispo de Toloso and downtown SLO.

A private drive leads up to a majestic Oak in a circular motor court. The stairway to the formal, octagonal foyer meanders by the historic stream and pond original to the house. Well-known landscape architect Sydney Baumgartner installed the hardscape in 2008. Courtyard gardens provide plenty of inspiration, and multiple, tiled terraces, designed to be extensions of the home’s living space, provide areas to sit, dine and relax surrounded by stately Oak trees, with cooling fountains and unique plants.

Subtle and elegant, this 1925 Spanish Colonial Revival home was thoughtfully remodeled in 2008 combining the details of several eras of Spanish Baroque and Moorish Revival. Authentic period details include 14 ft. vaulted, hand-painted beamed ceilings, Venetian plaster walls, recessed niches, intricate, colorful tile work, octagonal clerestory towers, a Juliet balcony, graceful arches, and elaborately traced wrought-iron. All are imbued with understated drama by the play of light and shadow cast by the original sconces, wrought iron chandeliers, and two fireplaces.

Approximately 3405 square feet, this home features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, formal dining room, living room, den, library, and a professionally-designed kitchen. A main-floor laundry room, wine storage room and two attached garages complete the layout.

This picturesque estate includes a guest house with private terrace, a greenhouse, hen house, multiple fenced gardens with raised beds, and an historic Camp San Luis shed with its iconic green roof. Behind the guest house, dry-stone stairways as well as an additional driveway lead up to the fenced fruit orchard, citrus grove and the barn. The extensive gardens, oak groves, and gently rolling terrain, as well as the mesmerizing views surround the estate, provide exceptional privacy and exclusivity.
