Gorgeous Italian Villa in North Pointe
Set on a private third of an acre lot, this immaculate home in the Estates of North Pointe community of North Ranch in Westlake Village is a gorgeous two-story Italian-inspired residence featuring 4,990 square-feet, five bedrooms, 4½ baths, and open living spaces with timeless designer details. Stylish details found throughout the home include 7½-inch baseboards and crown moulding throughout, and wood plantation shutters in every bedroom and office. Premiere solid wide plank hand-finished maple floors are featured in the family room, formal dining and living rooms, kitchen, office and all five bedrooms. Preparing favorite family meals is a sumptuous experience in the gourmet kitchen, where honed Calacatta marble slab counters serve as prep and serving space, and stainless steel appliances are top of the line. Formal and family living rooms offer intimate settings to gather and enjoy entertaining with family and friends, with fireplaces to cast flickering glows, warmth, and ambiance. Pristine, private views over open, green space are enjoyed from the front of the home, with forever views from the back yard, where a villa-style pool and water features welcome you to indulge in respite and rejuvenation in your own oasis.
Front of Home
Surrounded by mature, lush, and colorful landscaping, the picturesque exterior is highlighted with fresh paint, a mixed terra cotta colored tile roof, stately white columns, a faux Juliet balcony railing as an architectural focal point, and gorgeous covered portico courtyard entry. At the entry, a hand-crafted custom glass and wrought iron front door is enhanced by matching sidelights. Countless large windows and many French doors throughout the interior open to deliver fresh breezes and bring sunny California skies and natural light to every room.
Stepping over the threshold, a remarkable, regal oval foyer with a grand soaring, open ceiling welcomes all who enter. Underfoot, polished natural limestone flooring extends to the main floor hallways and upstairs suite baths, while striking hardwood plank flooring is carried through the living and sleeping rooms. Lovely custom wall niches and floor-to-ceiling columns provide exquisite ambiance, and a breathtaking, winding staircase features solid hardwood top steps, an intricately-crafted bronzed iron railing and banister, and a magnificent wrought iron and crystal chandelier suspended from the open second story.
Every gourmet chef’s dream can be found in abundance in the elegant, redesigned kitchen. Equipped with new bottoms and slow-closing hinges and pull-out drawers, cabinets are painted white for a modern yet traditional feel. Completely re-honed Calacatta Gold slab marble counters with custom carved edge, hand-cut white subway tiles, and marble backsplashes and accents further define this inviting kitchen. Stainless steel appliances include a Miele built-in refrigerator/freezer, Wolf double ovens, warming drawer, and six-burner gas range with stainless range hood, Viking microwave, U-Line wine cooler, and Asko dishwasher. Elegant ambiance lighting over the island work space is courtesy of a Curry & Company iron chandelier suspended from a raised ceiling, a large window over the sink, and French doors leading to a side patio, where a Zen fountain and multiple trellises line a peaceful walkway.
Formal Dining Room
Elegant and refined, the formal dining room is easily accessible from the foyer, kitchen, and formal rooms, yet is private and secluded for intimate dining occasions. Natural light streams through a set of French doors and side windows that lead to a charming fireside courtyard, while a sophisticated crystal chandelier suspended from the triple-raised ceiling casts a soft glow in the quiet alcove.
Formal Living Room
A second fireplace in the expanded formal living room can be enjoyed from both sides, and separates the formal living room into two spacious rooms; perhaps one for use as an office, library, or play room. Other thoughtful touches include a double-tiered ceiling with moulding, two pair of wide French doors on one side, and one set on the other, all opening directly to the manicured lawn and terraces.
Master Retreat and Bath
The storybook master suite exudes harmony in its palatial setting with raised two-tier ceilings and a wall of windows that provide spectacular panoramic views of treetops and mountains beyond. The sophisticated bath retreat features natural limestone floors carried through to the custom, glass-enclosed shower, and two mirrored walk-in closets that provide generous storage. Majestic, polished marble slab counters top two vanities and the tub, with hand-placed Calacatta Gold marble mosaic tile surrounding the open jetted bathtub and shower.
