The home has excellent “curb appeal” with its wide lot, wonderful oak trees, and professionally designed landscaping. The front sidewalk is set off by two stone columns with coach lights. The stone bordered walkway leads to an inviting stone paved entrance court that sits under the canopy of a wonderful multi-trunk live oak.
The exterior of the one story home is composed of antique brick walls and windows surrounded by wide, richly stained wood shutters. Fig ivy adds another appealing element to the home’s charming façade as do the beautifully planted beds and hedges that were created especially for the home by Complete Land Sculpture in 2002.
A beveled glass front door opens to home’s entry hall. Attractive hardwood floors are featured throughout the home with the exception of one bedroom. There is a formal living room and dining room, and the living room opens into the family room through a set of French doors. Many of the rooms feature elegant plantation shutters on the windows.
The den has a raised beamed ceiling and painted paneled walls. The focal point of the room is a fireplace and the den flows into the breakfast room/kitchen as well as into a bright and attractive sun room that overlooks the pool and the backyard. The den features surround sound for superior audio/visual reception as well as a wall of built-in book shelves and storage.
The kitchen has Corian counters, hardwood flooring and excellent storage. There is a family sized utility room between the kitchen and an attached two car electric eye garage. Adjacent to the breakfast room is the fifth bedroom/game room - depending on a family’s needs.
In 2000 the current owners commissioned architect Ellen Amador to design and add the ultimate master suite. The architect calls the result one of her favorite designs. The suite is a private retreat in the midst of a home equipped to handle all the demands of an active family’s life. The suite is composed of its own stately entrance framed by columns that open on one side to the very spacious master bedroom (with a vaulted ceiling) and on the other side to a sitting room ideal for relaxing, reading, and watching television.
The master suite has a luxurious marble bath that features two vanities, an oversized shower, and a spa soaking tub. There are also two huge walk-in closets with built in dressers and shoe storage as well as a dressing table in “her” closet. Adjacent to “his” closet is a built-in desk alcove. The suite is completed by a spacious room that opens through French doors to a private patio that is currently used as a home office, but that would also make a great exercise room.
From the home’s front entrance is a corridor that leads to three nicely proportioned bedrooms- one with its own private bath and the other two with a connecting bath. Each of these bedrooms has large walk-in closets.
The backyard is as attractive as the front. In 2002, Complete Land Sculpture designed the pool, landscaping, and fencing. The pool is surrounded by an eight foot fence and has a stone border. There is a large patio that sits under the home’s prized multiple trunk live oak. In addition the rear entry drive way is completely fenced and secured by an electronically operated wooden gate, and there is also a good sized grass area.
