Impressive Tudor Estate in Prestigious North Ranch
This remarkable Tudor-style home in Westlake Village’s North Ranch has been professionally decorated with thoughtful appointments for immaculate living. Set on a .46-acre parcel in a secluded cul-de-sac, this five-bedroom, four-bath estate was built in 1980 and falls within the boundaries of the stellar Conejo Valley School District. Inside, the residence is a study in open beamed and volume ceilings, and an open and flowing floorplan designed to celebrate space and create cozy niches to relax and live life moments to the fullest. Solid wood floors are featured in the living, family, and dining rooms, with large travertine tiles in the kitchen. Masterful design cues are enhanced with a fusion of rustic and modern, creating a unique, warm ambience at every corner.
Grand Architecture and Foyer
A welcoming half-circle red brick drive provides plentiful parking, with laundry hookups provided in the three-car garage. Mighty oaks shade the entry walk and planters, also placed with red brick, leading to the raised covered porch and double carved wood entry doors.
Stepping over the threshold to handsome solid wood plank flooring, a carved wood bannister and turned rails lead to the second level. Brightening the gallant foyer is an elegant, modern bronzed ironwork chandelier suspended from the raised, volume ceiling.
Professional Interior Design Highlights Formal, Family Rooms
The inviting, warm ambience continues from the grand foyer to the sunken formal living room, which features hardwood flooring, and a cavernous open ceiling with exposed wood trusses. A magnificent custom wood beam hearth and mantle extends from floor to ceiling and surrounds a gas-burning slate fireplace. Bringing light and soft breezes in are two large windows at the front of the home, and a set of French doors and window that opens to a quaint red brick terrace.
A charming and expansive step-down family room adjacent to the kitchen features authentic plank wood wall coverings and a raised brick fireplace and hearth, with a paned picture window providing lush garden views, and pair of French doors that open to the covered veranda in the backyard. Ample, open space can accommodate overstuffed furniture as a tranquil gathering place for rejuvenating and entertaining.
Formal dining is exquisitely presented in a lovely space highlighted by soft muted walls trimmed in solid wood on the baseboards and crown moulding. An artistic, lead glass chandelier in the center of the room casts a subtle glow on the wood plank flooring. With room to expand, the dining options can accommodate many guests with great ease.
Gourmet Kitchen Appointed with Top Appliances
Reminiscent of New England coast living, the grand kitchen is superbly designed in light, bright hues that contrast perfectly with the California Grey Quartz countertops that top white cabinetry. Further refinements include recessed light and pendant light fixtures, an inviting bay window over the sink, built-in pantries and hutch in the breakfast nook, and expansive prep island breakfast bar. White subway tiles create gleaming backsplashes throughout, and neutral travertine flooring provides further refinement.
Gourmet stainless steel appliances include a professional 48-inch double Wolf range and hood with six gas burners and griddle, Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and Bosch dishwasher. A single lead-glass door provides easy access and serving capabilities to the accompanying formal dining room.
Impressive Master Suite
At the top of the stairwell on the second level, handsome double wood doors grant entrance to the lavish master retreat. Building on the use of natural wood panel walls and a cathedral ceiling washed in a bright white finish, a corner gas-burning brick fireplace and wood plantation shutters reflect a soothing Hamptons or Cape Cod ambience throughout the main bedroom. A quiet niche is perfect as a lounge or sitting area. The large walk-in closet affords abundant space and is highlighted with two crystal chandeliers, modern built-in organizers, shelving, drawers, and shoe racks.
The splendid master bath suite is designed to incorporate custom double wood vanities, makeup table, and cabinetry topped with marble slabs. Natural travertine flooring is carried through to the walls and floors of the oversized, glass-enclosed shower which also has two shower heads and a marble seat. A sumptuous soaking whirlpool bathtub on a raised marble and travertine platform serves as the ultimate setting for optimal relaxation.
Guest Rooms and Baths
Downstairs off the foyer, a spacious office with an adjoined full bath features two large windows with dark wood plantation shutters, an extra-wide closet with wood sliding doors, plush Berber carpet, wood baseboards, and a ceiling fan. This versatile room might also accommodate a library, multimedia room, or gym.
Upstairs, three spacious guest bedrooms and two baths feature tile and wood vanities and brass hardware with glass tub/bath enclosures. At the top of the stairway, a wide hall features a custom wood wall of built-in shelves and book cases for displaying photos or collections, with more than enough room for use as a sitting area or reading niche.
Room to Roam
Boasting colorful, lush landscaping in both the front and rear yards, mature gardens and trees provide peace and serenity. A covered red brick patio terraces and circular brick pad provide many opportunities for additional entertaining, lounging, or dining. The generous lawn area is ideal for active families, with substantial room to run and play.
