Private residence near open space
An ideal home for a growing family awaits in the immaculate Braemar neighborhood of Westlake Village, located close to award-winning schools, hiking trails and the North Ranch Playfields. Located on a cul-de-sac with views of rolling hills of protected open space, this fine residence boasts privacy on both the side and back yards.
Immaculate front yard and entry
The immaculately maintained front yard features mature landscaping with grassy lawn areas and curved flower beds. A gorgeous magnolia tree and an olive tree on either side of the yard perfectly frames this traditional two story home with Spanish tile roof. An arched and covered entry shelters the outside entry, while a half moon window beautifully crowns the oversized front double panelled doors with sidelight windows. In the evening, the front yard is enhanced by subtle landscape lights. The foyer inside features soaring ceilings illuminated by a modern cylindrical pendant light. The curved wood staircase ahead leads to the upstairs bedrooms.
Open living and family rooms
All rooms feature hardwood floors except the living room and bathrooms. Victorian-inspired hardware gives character to all the interior doors. Steps away from the foyer, the living room features an impressive bay window overlooking the backyard, vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting, travertine flooring and fireplace. From the living room, the dining room is viewed through a wall of framed floor-to-ceiling windows, which opens up both rooms to give the appearance of one bright space. The family room is open to the kitchen, and a fireplace is at center stage in the room for cozy nights by the fire. French doors open to the patio for al fresco dining.
Open floorplan for entertaining
The kitchen, which opens to the family room for seamless entertaining, features an island with 5 burner stove and bar seating for two, glass backsplash, garden window and intimate breakfast nook. Entrance to the dining room is via french doors which also mirror the french doors on the opposite wall, which open up to the backyard to the option of extending the gathering outdoors. A refrigerated wine closet and bar with sink is conveniently situated at the apex of the family room, dining room and kitchen, well-suited for the mingling of guests amongst all four living and entertaining rooms.
Master bedroom suite
Skylights bathe the upstairs hallway in muted natural light just outside the entrance to the spacious master bedroom suite which overlooks the backyard. A fireplace complements what can become a cozy sitting area or office nook. A glittering crystal chandelier is suspended over the center of the bedroom. Storage space abounds with both a wall closet with mirrored doors and built-in system, in addition to a spacious walk-in closet. The beautiful and efficient walk-in closet features floating built-ins with pull-outs, drawers, shelves and cabinet doors with rain glass. The bathroom features a separate tub and walk-in shower with frameless glass enclosure, stone flooring and skylight.
Secondary bedrooms and bathroom
The three secondary upstairs bathrooms all feature vaulted ceilings. One upstairs bedroom features a gorgeous chandelier. Two of the bedrooms share a jack and jill bathroom with tub/shower combination and dual sinks. The third upstairs bedroom facing the street features an ensuite bath with shower. The downstairs bedroom with ensuite bath to the right of the foyer is currently set up as an office with built-in desk and shelving. The ensuite bathroom features a shower in addition to a convenient door to the backyard. A powder room is located downstairs near the living spaces for convenient guest access.
Private low maintenance backyard
The private backyard is almost completely surrounded by a natural wall of greenery, mostly comprised of fragrant jasmine along the back walls and flowerbeds nested in the patio areas, while citrus trees reside on the side yard. Aesthetically pleasing curved patio areas provide lounging and dining in the back and side yard areas. Grassy lawn areas lay between the patio and the high back garden wall. A hill just behind the back wall adds to the privacy of the yard. Easy access through french doors from the outdoor side yard patio to the family room allows for seamless entertaining.
