What do you do with eight bedrooms in one house? A sprawling Tudor in Monterey Heights has turned some of its bedrooms into a TV room, a sewing room, and a hideaway den. The house also boasts what look to be a "ladies' office" and a "gentlemen's study," but both are too small to be included in the bedroom count. The Tudor, which just hit the market asking $4.25 million, has 16 rooms in all and spreads out over 6,762 square feet. It also comes with backyard gardens and views out to the ocean.
The home was built in 1928 by Henry Gutterson, the supervising architect of nearby St. Francis Wood. It retains much of its original detailing, including leaded windows, a grand wooden staircase, and eight fireplaces. Even an old dumbwaiter remains intact. Neither the kitchen nor the bathrooms appear to have been updated recently, and could probably stand for some gentle modernizing.
