On land offered for sale for the first time in a decade, this nearly-new ocean-view home has the look and feel of a Mediterranean retreat. Sited behind gates on a view knoll of over 2.5 acres, the property is beautifully landscaped and meticulously designed for impressive indoor-outdoor recreation and entertaining. High ceilings with rough-hewn beams, spectacular chandeliers, arched windows and doorways, and stone tile floors highlight luminous rooms that are both formal and welcoming.
A domed foyer with a gorgeous tile “rug” opens to the home’s main living area, a grand-scale great room with living, dining, and kitchen areas. The living area is flanked by a large fireplace on one side, a wet bar on the other and four sets of French doors opening to patios and gardens. The dining area has three more sets of French doors leading to an ocean-view deck, while the beautiful chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with a chandelier island, separate breakfast bar, large pantry, quartz marble countertops, quality appliances, and striking tilework.
In addition to a powder room and laundry room, there are four en-suite bedrooms on the main floor, including a private and elegant owner’s retreat, complete with stone-mantel fireplace, dual closets, spacious spa-style bath, and three sets of French doors to an ocean-view deck area.
On the home’s lower level is an impressive wine cellar and wine tasting room with high ceilings and a wall of built-in wine racks; an office/bedroom; a fully equipped, carpeted movie theater; a full bath; and a guest bedroom with mountain and ocean views.
The property offers an inviting variety of outdoor spaces for relaxation and entertaining. From the front door, a path meanders through flowering plants and palms to a pergola-shaded ocean-view patio with comfortable seating. The very private backyard has a similar pergola, with hanging lamps and an area for poolside outdoor dining. A huge rock waterfall spills into the Pebble Tec pool that is solar heated, and a smaller waterfall runs into the tile-decorated spa. There is a firepit with a tiled bench, a covered outdoor kitchen, and barbecue with lovely tile work and bar seating, and a playground area with swings, slides, and a sandbox. There is also a vegetable garden and productive lemon trees. In addition, there is a large Electric Solar System with battery backup, Home LP Generator, sprinkler and fire hose protection system. There is a three-car garage, ample guest parking is available in the private motor court at the front of the house.
An exquisite and expansive residence of exceptional quality.
