Bespoke Craftsmanship with the Finest Materials
An exceptional example of bespoke craftsmanship by award-winning local builder Sereno Homes, the architecture is a nod to traditional mission style with a red-tile roof, stucco and stone walls and a grand, arched entry door. As impressive as the exterior is, you'll find the interior to be equally remarkable. Both subtle and luxurious, finishes include cool travertine flooring and clean white walls contrasting with warm oak beams and divided-light windows, creating an elegant starting point for your personal taste. Multiple interior elements were hand-selected for the utmost in style and luxury from the chef-grade appliances and hand-painted tile in the kitchen to the handcrafted iron light fixtures and hardware throughout the house. The entire main floor of the home opens up to a limestone terrace overlooking a European-style pool and spa, surrounded by classical landscaping and a view of the hills that create the feel of a provincial villa.
An Entertaining Showplace with Family Conveniences
Designed for entertaining, the floorplan begins with an elegant formal living room featuring views all the way out to the water and beyond; a formal dining room provides space for intimate events. The large, designer kitchen is anchored by a large island and opens to a family room which hosts a cozy fireplace that visitors will be drawn to. Guests can also be served upstairs in the game room with its own bar, and you'll find the family spending time there for movie night too.
At the end of the evening you'll enjoy retreating to the master suite, watching a crackling fire on cool nights as you gaze out over the landscape through the ceiling-height arched windows. French doors open to the terrace for easy access to a morning dip or evening alfresco nightcap.
A large study is opposite of the bedrooms and features build-in cabinetry, hand-scraped hardwood floors and French doors to the patio; the space is large enough to serve a variety of functions. Additional features include a three-car garage, wet bar off the kitchen, a large laundry room and ample storage.
