Set on approximately one-half acre, the cul-de-sac estate includes a serene, park-like front yard and an entertainer’s dream backyard. Mature trees and landscaping provide significant separation from adjacent homes, enhancing the very private feel.


Fresh and contemporary, the recently renovated home features a fully-remodeled kitchen, a luxurious master suite, and formal and casual living areas ideal for entertaining. Four sets of French doors open to the large backyard with its gorgeous pool and spa, sunny patio, and lighted dining pavilion.  Every room in the spacious floor plan is light and bright.


There are four or five bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths in approximately 4,310 square feet. The generously proportioned master suite features high ceilings, a ceiling fan, a walk-in closet, and French doors that open to the spa deck. The master bath includes a dual-basin vanity, free-standing tub, and a custom shower with a steam feature and a skylight that opens.  A private retreat connected to the master suite includes French doors, built-ins, and a wet bar—this flex space can be used as an office, art studio, or fitness room, or it could become bedroom number five. Two of the guest bedrooms offer window seats and there is a dual-basin vanity in the renovated hall bath.  An additional en suite guest room offers direct outdoor access.


The immaculate interior features tasteful design details such as classic millwork, custom cabinetry, tile and dark hardwood flooring, and recessed lighting.  The formal dining room has French doors that frame a view of the pool area.  The intimate formal living room offers an inviting fireplace and beautiful built-ins.


A full-size wet bar with built-in wine storage serves the living room, dining room, and the family room, which features cathedral ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace.  A handsome staircase leads to the versatile loft/bonus room and a balcony.


Fully-renovated, the modern kitchen offers streamlined Fisher & Paykel appliances including double ovens and a double-drawer dishwasher, plus polished granite counters and a huge center island topped with river-washed granite. An extra-large breakfast area has a chic light fixture that coordinates with the pendant lights over the breakfast bar. Additional amenities include a convenient guest powder room and a full-size laundry room. From the kitchen, French doors open to the pool area, extending the entertainment space right outdoors.


Designed for hosting memorable parties and summer barbeques, the large backyard includes a sparkling pool, separate spa, and a charming dining pavilion nestled against a lush green backdrop. After the sun sets, twinkling city lights emerge and the stargazing begins.  Fruit trees line one side yard; the other side is a dog run.  The home also offers a three-car garage.

Brick and wrought iron accents complement architecture inspired by Spain’s Andalusian region.  An inviting gated courtyard leads to a landscaped walkway with a stacked stone fountain.  At the entrance, impressive double doors adorned with decorative wrought iron open to reveal a majestic foyer with soaring ceilings and a magnificent custom chandelier.


Approximately 3,287 square feet encompasses four bedrooms and four-and-one-half baths, including a detached casita.  The master suite is a sumptuous haven with a double tray ceiling, lighted ceiling fan, wrought iron embellishments, and luxurious custom draperies that frame a beautiful view of the pool.  The spa-like master bath features stone floors and counters, dual vanities, a deep spa tub, and an extra-large shower with mosaic tile entry.


The open and inviting floor plan features a formal dining room with custom furniture and draperies, a stone-topped buffet, and a stunning Spanish-style chandelier.  The spacious great room is light and bright, with high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, large-scale tile floors throughout, and a handsome fireplace with a raised hearth and cast-stone mantel.  “Breathtaking” barely begins to describe the incomparable view.


The living area is completely open to the gourmet kitchen and casual dining area.  Top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances include a built-in refrigerator, five-burner gas cooktop, double ovens, a warming drawer, wine fridge, and more.  Gleaming granite counters, rich wood cabinetry, and a walk-in pantry make this a chef’s dream kitchen.  Stylish pendant lights illuminate the extra-long breakfast bar.

Offered furnished, the home includes impeccable architectural details, custom shutters, hardwood and tile flooring, plush carpet, recessed lighting, ceiling fans, a home automation system, and a laundry room with washer and dryer included.


The estate’s crown jewel is the beautiful lighted pool.  Waterfalls cascade into the pool from stone columns topped with fire bowls.  At night, the heated pool and bubbling spa are the perfect place for stargazing.  Blurring the line between indoor and outdoor living, the shaded loggia adds to the entertainment space with a cozy fireplace, a built-in TV cabinet, and lighted ceiling fans.  The adjacent pool deck includes a barbeque center with bar seating, a firepit, well-tended landscaping, and incredible views that stretch across the golf course to the rugged mountains.


The elevated lot measures approximately one-quarter acre.  Guard-gated Andalusia Country Club features a Rees Jones golf course.  The community offers a restaurant, fitness center, pool and spa, tennis courts, pickle ball, bocce ball, and community events, plus a dog park and hiking and biking trails.
