Built in 1985 on a .77-acre parcel of land parallel to lush golf greens, the impressive 6,554-square-foot residence boasts five bedrooms, seven baths, two living rooms, an office, gourmet kitchen and appliances, three-car garage, an expansive backyard with a designer pool-spa, built-in island with barbecue, an open casita for dining and lounging, and modern amenities and interior design cues throughout. Scenic mountain views and mature landscaping with an abundance of majestic oak trees and seasonal streams add to the charm and ambience of the land.
An Impressive Welcome
Stepping over the threshold onto gleaming white polished limestone flooring and mahogany trim baseboards set the tone for an architecturally stunning foyer. A gently curved stairway and a voluminous raised wood ceiling peaks to the second-floor accommodations, office, and upstairs living area. Steps down from the foyer on one side will bring a spacious formal living area into view. The dining area, kitchen, breakfast nook, laundry and powder rooms, and private den/bedroom with en suite bath is accessible on the main floor.
Open Living Areas Provide Sophisticated Elegance
A sophisticated downstairs living room features a raised wood cathedral ceiling, soffit lighting and a lovely handcrafted brick and white limestone fireplace and hearth flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows. The floating encased garden window nook and French doors allow the area to further be bathed in natural light and bring the lush landscaping from the side and back yard terraces into view.
Formal Dining Enclave
Intimate as a quiet dining area for two, or for sharing meals or conversation with a larger group of family and friends, the inviting formal dining enclave features solid hardwood plank floors, an opulent crystal chandelier, and a triple set of modern French doors leading to the secluded terraces beyond. Gourmet appointments in the immaculate kitchen include sun-filled light from panoramic windows, a deep farmer’s sink, wood plank flooring, raised coffered ceilings, and custom wood cabinetry topped with extravagant sunken slab granite counters.
Palatial Master Retreat
A private office space with multiple French doors that open to a private balcony, soaring ceilings of natural wood, and a second limestone fireplace highlight the remarkable, palatial master retreat. French doors open to a stunning private Juliet balcony overlooking the azure pool below, and provide natural ambience and views of the mountains and prestigious golf greens. The luxurious bath and dressing area is elegantly appointed with limestone flooring, custom wood vanities topped with sunken slab granite and travertine tiled backsplashes, and bronzed hardware. A sumptuous white porcelain soaking tub takes center stage for respite and relaxation, with a massive travertine tiled shower that features three shower heads and a built-in resting seat. Two enormous walk-in closets provide more than ample storage.
Four Guest Bedrooms with En Suite Baths
Whether appointed as an office, library, media center, sitting or bedroom the possibilities are endless for this quiet, downstairs room. Located off the main hall on the first level, appointments include soffit lighting, full-size closet, and bath with a tub/shower – perfect for guests or a house manager. Upstairs, three large bedrooms are designed with walk-in closets, private en suite bathrooms with custom designed travertine and glass shower/tubs, stone vanity tops, bronzed hardware and enclosures, and fantastic views of lush landscaping and tree canopies.
