This outstanding custom 1985 ranch home is one of the nicest on the mountain and is sited on a park-like 5 acres that is fully fenced and cross-fenced. The privacy and natural serenity of this property is absolutely amazing.
A gorgeous wall of redwood trees screens the property from roadside view. The gated entry leads to a circle drive and the impressive custom ranch home at the top of the property. This unique 2,981 sqft ranch residence has a terrific floorplan that starts with a formal entry leading to a huge living room with a massive white brick fireplace with insert. Double French doors lead to the formal dining room which also has direct access to the kitchen and to the back patio. The country style kitchen is amazing with a seating area for a large family. You'll love the double ovens, tiled island food prep center with separate sink, the Jenn-Aire cooktop, an enormous amount of cabinetry, tile floors, built in kitchen desk, and direct access to the attached oversize 2 car garage with guest quarters. The handicap friendly hallway leads to a large utility room with outside access, 2 large bedrooms(one with direct access to the guest bath), and an outstanding master suite with separate shower and tub. The oversized garage has parking for 2 cars plus a finished floor work area & shop. In addition, there is a 300 sqft guest suite or office area w/private bath. The home is all 2 x 6 construction, an architectural comp roof, plus 2 dual pack HVAC's and two 40 gallon water heaters. In back, there is a great covered patio, 12 x 16 workshop, and a concrete pad for a hot tub or patio furniture.
The property is outstanding with excellent usable terrain and an amazing variety of trees including redwoods, live oak, white oak, redbud, pepperwood, manzanita, elderberry, buckeye, a variety of ornamentals, and some very unique rock features. Property elevation is a very comfortable 2,700 feet, so it's cooler in the summer with an occasional winter snowfall. The entire property is fenced and cross-fenced for horses with a 3 stall pole barn and numerous steel panels plus a large chicken coop, so your eggs will always be fresh. It is fully accessible by vehicle. The back yard area is fenced for dogs. The entire setting is truly parklike and the natural serenity and privacy of this property is very unique.
As always, we tell you about any negatives, but there aren't many. The owners are older and there is some deferred maintenance. Nothing serious, just becoming a bit too much. There is an issue with one HVAC unit and one of the stoves that the seller will deal with. Built in 1985, the home is a bit dated to current fashion, but still a very fashionable home. With this year's rainy winter season the landscaping has become a bit overgrown. You will get the occasional snow in winter (4-6 inches is not uncommon). And, once in a while, you can enjoy a white Christmas.
This is a very unique offering that offers a gorgeous 5 acre retreat that is private and serene. This property feels good when you are on it. The land and the home blend together to provide a secluded and very comfortable rural lifestyle. Not into horses. Not to worry. This property will work for just about any use you have in mind. Showings are by appointment only to prequalified buyers with 24 hours notice.
