From the moment you drive through the gated entry and cross the bridge over the year-round creek, you are surrounded by lush (and low maintenance) landscaping, including mature oaks, sycamore, and numerous fruit trees (orange, lemon, tangerine, avocado and more). Ornamental shrubs and ferns, as well as heirloom roses provide color and beauty. The outdoor areas were thoughtfully designed as extensions of the interior living space and provide great spaces to be enjoyed regardless of the time of day or season. Saltillo tile paths meander around the home, through boxwood hedges, linking the various patios.
Inside, natural light fills the home’s interior through five Velux skylights set in the vaulted ceilings of the living spaces. Wood-beam ceilings and oak floors exude warmth in the Living and Dining Rooms, both positioned to enjoy the double-sided fireplace. Energy-saving updates like low-e Milgard Ultra windows and high R-value insulation keep energy costs down and provide a cool escape from the warm summer days.
The Kitchen is a definite highlight of this home, as It has been completely remodeled and all cabinetry was hand-made on site by the owner, using rare woods and the finest techniques. The majority of the cabinets are made of curly ash wood, with dovetail joints and book-matched panels for the doors. A built-in storage and display unit is made of walnut, with the same attention to detail. The counters are tropical green granite, with travertine backsplashes and compliment the stainless steel Bertazzoni range. For those who enjoy entertaining outside, a built-in BBQ and beautiful travertine counters are under a covered patio.
The luxurious master suite features oak floors, French doors leading to a covered private balcony, and a large walk-in closet. The master bathroom offers an array of amenities including double vanity with travertine counter, a travertine tiled walk-in shower, whirlpool tub, and even a built-in Far infrared (FIR) sauna.
