Set on just over an acre of verdant, sweeping grounds is this four bedroom, three and a half bathroom haven of a home. Private and serene Alice in Wonderland-esque landscaping abounds, with terraced gardens and numerous alcoves. Winding pathways, paved stairways with hedging, rustic gates and built-in timber bench seating are perfect for entertaining, or to simply relax on and marvel at Mother Nature’s bounty.
The expansive pool area is straight out of renowned, mid-century photographer, Slim Aarons playbook with classic styling – hedging, cabana, pool house with outdoor shower, and a generous decked and cemented area to accommodate sizeable soirees. The immaculate surrounding gardens provide privacy and a sense of wonder, while an elevated, competition-level bocce court overlooking the pool is put to good use for when matters turn serious. A lush arbor leads to a jacuzzi, discreetly nestled within a leafy courtyard, enveloped by towering mature trees offering privacy and shelter, irrespective of soaking time.
Enchanting landscaping aside, note the home’s inviting front entrance with substantial deck, brightly painted red door with stunning, feature leadlight and towering portico with French doors. Swing the red door open and step inside the 2266-square foot home. You’ll be drawn to its unique design elements, particularly the kitchen. Its magnificent, rustic farmhouse timber beams with industrial ironware and thoughtful, overhead directional lighting form a contrasting canopy over and around the bright white ample cabinetry. Natural light streams in from every window, enhanced by a mirrored kitchen backsplash, providing constant reminders of the surrounding beauty that awaits and beckons you outdoors to enjoy. Stainless steel appliances (ample sink, side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, wall oven and microwave) complement the existing cabinetry. A formal dining room adjoins the kitchen with a spectacular vaulted ceiling and timber fretwork, wet bar and custom, built-in cabinetry with accent lighting to display treasures. A laundry room conveniently adjoins the kitchen with washer and dryer and shopper access to the three-car garage that connects to the leveled circular driveway with parklands that comfortably accommodate 10+ vehicles if need be.
The ground floor living room enjoys a sense of architectural drama with stunning vaulted timber ceilings and feature beams, gas fireplace with striking travertine surround, timber mantel and enclosed wood storage, and timber staircase balustrade. One full bedroom with double sliding closet and full bathroom is located nearby for convenience and accessibility. While upstairs, the perspective shifts to that of a spacious forest cabin, as the warmth and grain of the stunning pitched ceiling is more evident. This level contains a large master bedroom with pitched ceiling, double-door sliding closet, ceiling fan and a Jack-and-Jill-styled bathroom with adjoining office/dressing room with pitched ceiling and skylight. Additional storage and an attic are also located on this level. Follow the open plan corridor and discover the one-bedroom, 324-square foot studio with full bathroom, kitchenette and private balcony overlooking an idyllic woodland vista. The studio is positioned above the main living area and features a separate entrance, with potential use as a teenager’s retreat, guest suite, artist studio or short-term stay option.
Equipped with all-important yet separate ‘working areas’ to spark the most creative of juices, you’ll appreciate the generous shed, large and thoughtfully designed full-sized workshop and storage facility to ensure that you do follow-through with your list of DIY projects. Additional property features include solar power, and an unused land area adjoining the bocce court for cultivation or development. Perhaps a large herb and vegetable garden… or tennis anyone?
