Decorator inspired entertainer's home
This rare, sprawling one-story home encircling a private entertainer's backyard is perched high on a cul-de-sac in the center of the upscale North Ranch Custom Estates of Thousand Oaks. The area offers several recreational activities for everyone, from teeing off at the greens which are just a stone's throw away, or hiking and biking the local trails. Masterful workmanship is evident throughout this fine residence, with handcrafted details, high-end materials, and added decorator touches.
Delightful garden entrance with fabulous foyer
The driveway to the top of the hill leads to the garage and front yard of this sprawling one-story estate, situated with a fabulous vantage point high on a cul-de-sac. Jacaranda and olive are amongst the mature trees which dot the ivy and grass covered hillside fronting the residence. Flagstone stepping stones embedded in the grass meet at a circular patio with birdbath and topiaries, and then lead to the flagstone covered front porch and wooden arched double front door. The formal separate entry boasts mountain views, a high ceiling with accent windows, and wood cross beams anchoring a wrought iron chandelier.
Entertaining inside and out
Just off the entry, stepping down into the family room to the left affords breathtaking views of the rolling hillsides from the several windows and window seat, or seated in front of the cozy fireplace. Straight ahead of the entry is the living room with custom mosaic tiled fireplace surround with espresso paneled wood mantle. The room features a soaring cathedral ceiling, custom beveled leaded glass window, recessed lights and light carpeting. A formal bar with counter seating is adjacent to French doors leading to the covered backyard porch for the fabulous entertaining opportunities.
Chef's galley kitchen with dining options
The gourmet kitchen features amenities including island with custom handcrafted carved wood accents, wine fridge, warming drawer, high-end stainless steel appliances, bar counter seating and elegant wrought iron candelabra chandelier overhead. Light-colored faux antique cabinetry is topped by light granite counters, apron-front sink and custom tile backsplash over the 6-burner stove. One entrance to the kitchen features an elegant beveled leaded glass door, while another door exits to the backyard, providing access to the built-in barbeque. Dining options are flexible with eating area inside the kitchen, plus an adjacent room with a quaint window seat and a formal dining room.
Romantic private master suite
The romantic master suite is tucked on one side of the house separate from the living areas and down the hallway past the secondary bedrooms. A skylight and swag of decorator drapery borders the entrance to this private suite. French doors near the intimate sitting area exit to the backyard. The spacious bedroom features a fireplace and generously sized walk-in closet. The bathroom features separate his and hers paneled wood vanities with marble counters, tile border accents and wrought iron sconces. The room also features an in-wall fireplace surrounded by tile accents and a stand-alone soaking tub and separate walk-in shower with built-in seat.
Bedroom with ensuite bath
All of the home's bedrooms are accessed via the gorgeous stone-tiled hallway with double beveled leaded glass doors, providing privacy and separation from the living and dining areas. The secondary bathrooms are located on the opposite side of the living spaces and feature neutral carpeting, pale blue walls, mirrored closet doors, and recessed lighting. Two bedrooms share a bathroom with dual sinks, faux antique ivory wood vanity, tub and separate shower with frameless glass. The third bedroom with walk-in closet features an ensuite bath with combination tub/shower, pedestal sink and polished chrome fixtures. The powder room is conveniently located near the living and dining rooms.
Private entertainer's backyard
The private backyard swimming pool and spa back up to a short antiqued wall with stone-covered columns. Behind the wall a foliage covered hillside dotted with olive trees provides added privacy. The stained concrete patio areas are interspersed with flagstone and pebble borders, creating texture and color to the serene backyard. The secret garden-like yard features dwarf citrus, mini palms, and weeping cherry trees plus mature plantings, climbing vines and grassy areas. The covered patio is open to the living room and features a wrought iron chandelier and wall fountain. A curved built-in barbeque features bar seating area for four or more, stainless steel sink, grill, and Viking mini fridge.
