The formal dining room is awash in subdued red walls, and while the dining room table currently accommodates four, the room is certainly spacious enough to swap in a much larger table.

If you're in the mood for a more informal eating space, sit down at the built-in bench seating up against the gorgeous Bay windows. We imagine this is quite the welcoming view to begin the day with a cup of coffee and the newspaper.

Downstairs is where all the fun happens. This media room comes replete with built-in cabinetry and surround sound. Plus, you won't sacrifice style for fun -- the tiled floors and fireplace give the room a ton of character.

Any true entertainment room wouldn't be complete without a bar. This one is original and in fact, looks like it's well stocked for the new occupants already.

While most kids rooms come with perhaps a couple of windows, this one boasts its own private balcony, as well as panoramic views of the Bay. That's one lucky kid.

The restored <a href="http://www.1801melvin.com/" target="_blank">pad</a> was originally designed by architect Ray F. Keefer in 1934. While it obviously retains many original details and a sense of historic style, the house has been updated to modern standards. After all, such a sweet lounge space requires an equally sweet flat screen tv.
