EXCEPTIONAL LUXURY ESTATE. This richly layered, single-story home, just completed in 2015, showcases a brilliant Steven Kubitschek design on a gated, ¾-acre level lot. Functional and thoughtfully created spaces harmonize with fresh and crisp finishes while the California indoor-outdoor living is epitomized with a seamless flow to multiple outdoor venues designed for entertaining, play, and quiet reflection.
Almost 5,300 square feet of living space features dramatic vaulted and beam ceilings, decorative wainscot, wide crown molding, glass pocket doors, wide-planked walnut hardwood floors, sleek brushed nickel hardware, multiple fireplaces, and lots of natural light.
There are four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two powder rooms in the main house. A detached pool house/additional bedroom with full bathroom and sauna is ideal flexible space for guests. Also featured is a generous-sized formal dining room, adjacent game room, spectacular light-filled great room, well-appointed gourmet kitchen, formal office/library with pocket door entry, and bonus room in bedroom wing.
The soft hues of Kentucky Bluestone flow outside around the pebble tec pool and spa, outdoor pavilion and walkways to the fire pit. Gather with family and friends for some outdoor fun and grill some crowd-pleasing fare in the outdoor kitchen, pick up a game of bocce ball in the side court, or kick around a soccer ball on the expansive gated play field. Reap the homegrown bounty from numerous fruit trees and vegetables grown in the raised beds in the gated front garden.
