Approximately 5,401 square feet includes five bedrooms and five-and-one-half bathrooms. 

The spacious master suite features a balcony, a library, and a retreat with a romantic fireplace.  There is a walk-in closet plus an en suite bath with two separate vanities, a huge shower, and a deep soaking tub tucked into a granite alcove.


At the entry, the formal foyer features polished stone floors with an inlaid medallion.  A staircase curves elegantly up to the cathedral ceiling.  Rough-hewn timber beams crown the ceiling in the formal living room, which also offers large windows and a handsome fireplace.  The adjacent formal dining room features French doors that open to an al fresco dining patio with a fireplace of its own.  A butler’s pantry connects the dining room to the gourmet kitchen.


The custom kitchen is a chef’s dream with limestone floors, granite counters, a stone tile backsplash, and creamy white cabinetry antiqued with a subtle glaze.  The massive center island/breakfast bar, which has cabinetry in a contrasting warm wood finish, is topped with a single slab of granite, creating an ideal surface for preparing and serving meals.  Quality appliances include double ovens, microwave, dishwasher, and a built-in refrigerator with integrated panels that match the cabinetry.  There is a long stretch of workspace on each side on the five-burner gas cooktop and a custom range hood overhead.  The kitchen also offers a walk-in pantry, a large window over the stainless steel sink, and a sunny breakfast nook with doors that open to a view of the pool.

The generously proportioned family room is designed to accommodate large gatherings with ease.  A large picture window frames the view of the pool and spa, and double French doors provide access to the shaded terrace.  The family room features a private wine storage room, a built-in entertainment center, and a second staircase.


Overlooking the front courtyard, the home office (5th bedroom) features a beamed ceiling, custom cabinetry, and French doors.   The main floor also offers a guest bath, a powder room, and a full-size laundry room with utility sink and extra storage.  Four of the bedrooms are located on the upper level, which also features a huge loft bonus room with a built-in media center, and a quiet study alcove with built-in desk and cabinetry.  The home offers stone and hardwood floors throughout.


In the backyard, the gorgeous pool and elevated spa take center stage.  Water tumbles into the pool from a cascading spillway and lion head fountains.  The two-level pool deck is ideal for stargazing or lounging in the sun.  The fully-covered poolside pavilion is the perfect destination for outdoor entertaining.  It offers a long counter with bar seating, a kitchen area with a sink and space for a refrigerator, a large living/dining space, a wood-burning fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, and a built-in barbecue.


The home is placed well back from the street for enhanced privacy, with a wide stone driveway that curves alongside a park-like garden.  Guests are welcomed by a spacious front courtyard, raised stone planters with mature trees and landscaping, and a lovely fountain encircled by lush green grass.  The expansive grounds feature manicured landscaping, well-maintained shade trees, and extensive stonework.  Approximately 34,850 square feet, the estate includes a four-car garage and access to a wide side yard that could accommodate recreational vehicles.

The spacious single-story floor plan offers three bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths in approximately 2,871 square feet.  In the lovely master suite, large windows capture the lake view.  Crafted from antique Chinese panels, the sliding closet doors are a work of art.  The well-appointed master bath includes a dual-basin vanity, oversized shower, and deep soaking tub.  Luxurious upgrades throughout contribute to the home’s sophistication and quality.


The formal living room and adjacent dining area feature a dual-sided gas fireplace shared with the comfortable family room.  Designed with entertaining in mind, a granite-topped wet bar is perfectly positioned to provide easy access and extra seating for all of the gathering areas.

Bathed in natural light, the fully-renovated kitchen has been outfitted with tasteful white quartz counters, a sleek center island, and exquisite Oregon pine cabinetry in a muted grey and white textured finish.  High-end modern appliances include a Wolf gas stovetop, KitchenAid ovens, and a Samsung refrigerator with an integrated computer screen.  The family room, kitchen, and sunny breakfast area overlook the back patio, where the infinity-edge pool appears to blend seamlessly into one of the community lakes, creating an extended water view.

The full-size laundry room features the nearly new LG steam washer and dryer, a utility sink, storage cabinets, and plenty of counter space.  Additional recent updates include LED ceiling lights throughout, new paint and carpet, several new windows, “silent” bathroom fans, solar panels, and renewed plumbing and electrical systems.  The roof was replaced in 2018.  The two-car garage has new storage cabinets plus a golf cart bay.


The backyard is a dreamy desert oasis with lush landscaping, exceptional privacy, and that mesmerizing lake view.  A cascading tiled waterfall connects the pool and elevated spa; the surrounding patio offers separate areas for dining and lounging, plus a built-in stainless steel barbeque.  Approximately 9,147 square feet, the property features a gated garden entrance and updated landscaping.  A rare Mexican Blue Palm is tucked into a secluded side garden.
