Published: Monday, February 10, 2014 | 1:13 PM

851 Fairfield Circle is an original 1914 English craftsman style home. Reginald Johnson originally built it for a wealthy family from Chicago. The 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom home is 5,026 square feet with a lot size of 23,593 square feet.

As you drive up to the home, a long driveway welcomes you with luscious greens on both sides. The gorgeous home pops up between trees and a beautiful sky as the backdrop. A covered porch leads to the large, wooden front door.

The three-level home has been restored and upgraded, but still features the fine materials and workmanship that Johnson is well known for.

As you enter 851 Fairfield Circle, you are met by an entryway with a gorgeous staircase on one side and the library opens up on the other side. The library features calming natural light that is perfect for curling up on the couch and reading a good book.

From the library, you can enter the living room, which overlooks the side garden. It features a Batchelder tile fireplace and has plenty of space to entertain friends.

The living room leads to a wooden dining room with French doors that open up to an outdoor, covered patio. The dining room also features gorgeous ornate windows.

The gourmet kitchen is stylish with copper and granite counter tops and newer appliances. The butler’s pantry and under cabinet laundry are great additions, as is the bright breakfast area.

Just down the stairs near the kitchen is the basement. It has a beautiful hobby room. You can also access the upstairs from the kitchen area with a separate staircase.

The beautiful main staircase leads to the second level, as does a period elevator. The second level is home to an office with spectacular mountain views, a master suite with a fireplace, a bedroom with an attached, enclosed porch, as well as three other bedrooms that receive wonderful natural lighting.

The master suite offers a fireplace and mountain view as well as has a spectacular master bathroom. The master bathroom is roomy and features a spacious glass shower and separate tub.

Just above the two car garage was the chauffeur’s quarters. Now it makes a perfect guesthouse. There is also an attic with plenty of storage space.

Outside of 851 Fairfield Circle is a wonderful patio area with a large grassy area. The home features special landscaping to enhance the site.

Other features include high ceilings, hardwood floors, a security system, and bolted foundation.

Listing Price: $3,989,000
