            The four-bedroom, two-bath home features more than 1,700 square feet of living space plus more than 300 square feet in detached cottages ideal for additional bedrooms, studio, gym, home office or pool house. The more than third-acre property feels even larger due to the border of mature trees on either side providing the utmost in privacy and the generous level yard that extends up a gentle slope dotted with multiple trees and terraced gardens.

            Behind the double door entry, a great room features more than 1,000 square feet of fabulous flexible use and beautifully designed space with a soaring vaulted ceiling and exposed trusses, hand troweled Old World textured walls with rounded corners, and newly polished Brazilian Cumaru hardwood floors.  The room features a gas fireplace with granite surround, carved mantel, and decorative sconces. Natural light pours into the room from a pair of front-facing windows and the three French doors along the back that open onto the incredible backyard venue with a hillside view.

            Custom walnut cabinetry masterfully crafted with inset doors, decorative moldings and stylish knobs and pulls adorns the spacious gourmet kitchen that also features an exposed beam ceiling. Designed for multiple cooks and ease in entertaining, the kitchen showcases granite counters and a tumbled stone backsplash that complement the updated stainless appliances that include a Samsung refrigerator, dual Bosch ovens, Dacor six-burner cooktop which is also plumbed for a pot filler, and KitchenAid dishwasher.

            The oversized island features extra deep cabinetry for large appliances. Hammered copper farm and prep sinks feature rubbed bronzed faucets.

            A moveable breakfast bar with additional walnut cabinetry and a granite top conveniently rolls to wherever it is needed to set up a bar, serving buffet, or added counter seating. The kitchen and adjacent dining area feature travertine floors.

            Four spacious bedrooms feature new plush carpeting and large closets. Two bedrooms have front-facing windows. Two full bathrooms have been thoughtfully updated with new tile flooring, granite counters, walnut vanities, and new rubbed bronze fixtures. One bathroom has a separate vanity area and shower/bathtub combination.

            Gather friends and family poolside to enjoy all the pleasures of this magnificent, fully fenced backyard, a private oasis and unexpected treasure. A sprawling patio wraps around the pool and spa, and a lush level lawn area offers lots of space for play. Steps traverse the gentle slope and arrive at another wonderful viewing deck and bocce ball court. Hang a hammock between towering redwoods for a quiet retreat. Continue up the natural terrain to two cottages connected by a breezeway and view the surrounding hillsides. Foliage and Japanese maple trees bursts with seasonal color along the handpicked moss rock garden wall. Consider customizing the hillside further with additional terraced gardens and retreat spaces nestled under the redwoods.
