Tarbell, Realtors’ Preferred Properties Division joins Evelyn Chu in offering an amazing home from the Estates Collection. Set on a secluded cul-de-sac lot in the gated Crown Ranch community, this magnificent Corona home features inviting arches, intricate ironwork, and classic stone and stucco architecture influenced by the estates of the Spanish countryside. From the glass and iron double-door entry to the poolside entertainment pavilion, the home offers fine craftsmanship and substantial displays of stone and wood work, with impeccable fixtures and finishes throughout.
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.
