SOLD... Looking for complete privacy? Here's a great 2 story custom home located at the very end of a cul-de-sac lane. The home is completely secluded from view of the road and enjoys a very serene and private setting on a fenced hillside 6 acre parcel.
The 2,688 square foot home has a very unique floor plan that is very open and spacious. The upper level features a huge kitchen with a large freestanding breakfast bar and very unique custom cabinetry. The kitchen is open to a massive living room with rustic natural wood beamed cathedral ceilings. The living room is centered by a massive adobe fireplace with a high efficiency woodstove insert. There is a large covered breakfast deck off of the kitchen that gets the morning sun and has a propane connection for a BBQ. In addition to the breakfast deck, there is also a huge covered wraparound deck on the west side of the home. There are three large bedrooms with one isolated from the other two. Every room on the upper level, including the bedrooms, has a direct access to the deck. A distinctive wood staircase, highlighted by a gorgeous stain glass window that catches the morning sun, leads down to a terrific family room that has a great corner adobe fireplace, wet bar, and 1/2 bathroom. Don't need a family room? With the half bath, this area is easily large enough to be converted to mother-in-law quarters or to add a couple more bedrooms. The family room has a full window wall with access to a covered concrete patio and to the oversize finished two car garage. The garage has direct access to a nice attached greenhouse located on the east side of the home to catch the morning sun and avoid the afternoon heat. The home has a great Spanish tile roof that helps keep things cool in summer and has both central heat and a/c plus evaporative cooling. The property has a nice paved drive and security gates which could be converted to electric. The entire exterior of the home has been recently painted and the home is in very nice condition.
The lot is a hillside parcel. It's a great lot with many unique features. Most of it is fenced for animals and there are several spots for additional outbuildings. There are plenty of mature oaks and buckeye trees and the property has excellent western views. It is hillside property but it is very walk-able. There are numerous massive rock outcroppings and, if you look close, you'll see some Indian grinding holes. Why? Perhaps due to the spring in the creek that flows through the property. The creek never stops flowing in the summer. And, check out the old water wheel. Needs some work but it's pretty cool. The Indians always knew the best places to stay. Additionally, well is an excellent 20gpm.
How about any negatives? Location is about 8 miles from Hwy 180, so commute time to the valley is a bit longer. The carpets are okay but not terrific. The landscaping is very nice but a bit overgrown and it needs some attention. Parking by the house is somewhat cramped but there is a lower level off of the drive that provides additional area to park.
This a great property for someone wanting absolute privacy but needs a larger home with lots of living space. You will love the serenity of its natural setting. The home will qualify for both FHA and VA financing. Showings are by appointment only.
