Nestled in a private, forest-like setting worthy of a fairy tale, this enchanting Tudor-style estate from Tarbell, Realtors’ Preferred Properties Division is offered by Orange County real estate expert Laurie Reese. It is located in a secluded Anaheim Hills neighborhood comprised of exceptional custom homes on very large lots.
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.
