Flooded with natural light, this rare custom home features the finest finishes throughout; a charming courtyard with fountain, wood beamed ceilings, arched doorways and plaster walls. With most of the living space on the main level, the remodeled kitchen, breakfast room, the formal living and dining rooms, and the courtyard are just steps away from the front entry. The living room, dining room, and master bedroom have wood burning fireplaces and share a balcony that overlooks the pool and again showcases the expansive views and privacy this home has to offer. The luxurious master bath was recently remodeled with large copper tub and steam shower. A private courtyard adjoins the master bath, with a spa and fireplace. Surrounding a central windowed courtyard on this level, there are two additional large bedroom suites, a laundry room, 3 car garage, and linen closet. Going downstairs reveals a substantive family room with unique ceiling detail, a large stone fireplace and entertaining bar. The family room provides access to the pool, as well to an adjoining a guest bedroom suite on one side, and a large library and storage room on the other. Outside, the grounds are inspired and provide a perfect context for the home. These include a most desirable Casita of approximately 500 sq. ft. with an abundance of cabinetry, a kitchenette and a full bath. Adjacent to the Casita are a saltillo tiled patio with patio cover, a dramatic fountain and BBQ center, and a large lawn area. Connected, expansive patio areas surround the home with custom hardscaping throughout, and the abundant mature landscaping thrives. In the orchard, grapes, stone fruits, citrus, berries, apples and guavas all flourish and yield seasonal fruit. The home and property have played host to both the Westlake Garden Tour and the Wellness Community Holiday Home Tours, and private parties inside and out for 200+ visitors.
