Infused with a richness of character unique to Hope Ranch, the timeless design of this three-bedroom home exhibits an aura of unassuming sophistication and luxury. Tucked away behind private entry gates, this stylish country home boasts hardwood, stone, and marble floors and solar-powered energy.
The Dutch door entry sets the tone of relaxed elegance integrated throughout the 3,360 square-foot, single-level home. Indulge in the nostalgic fragrance of burning firewood on a crisp autumn day as you enter the elegant living and formal dining rooms, which capture gentle sunlight and a backdrop of vibrant flora through tall windows and French doors.
Comprising one wing of the home is a grandiose great room, above which exposed-beam vaulted ceilings with skylights and wrought-iron fixtures infuse an element of rusticity into the otherwise refined space. Included in the great room is a beautifully redesigned kitchen with an oversized island, high-end appliances, travertine floors, luminous quartzite counters with limestone backsplash, and abundant storage within the custom maple cabinetry.
A luxurious master suite at the opposite end of the home features a vaulted ceiling, custom walk-in closet, hardwood floors, and French doors framing the private gardens. The suite is completed by a delightfully skylight bath with his-and-her vanities and commodes, which are joined by a sumptuous marble walk-in shower. Also in this wing are a remodeled hallway bath and two guest bedrooms, both of which, too, enjoy access to the gardens. The home also hosts a dedicated office, mudroom/laundry with a third full bath, and an attached two-car garage.
Outside, natural splendor is present in spades. Blanketed by the shade of enormous Live Oak trees and flecked with mature citrus groves, plus beds of rosebushes, the terraced and intricately landscaped rear yard nearly resembles a subtropical oasis. At its foot, a romantic flagstone niche reminiscent of a secret garden provides the ideal escape for a morning coffee or an after-dusk libation. The fully-fenced, one-acre property lies hidden on a quiet and desirable street, touted for its minimal traffic, level terrain, sense of community, and its convenience to Laguna Blanca School, La Cumbre Country Club, and the private Hope Ranch beach.
