An entertainer's paradise on a resort-like property! This exquisitely designed, custom Mediterranean home in exclusive Los Lagos Estates features a masterful Chef's Kitchen, bright, open entertaining rooms, and an opulent first-floor Master Suite. The sprawling estate is appointed with stunning woodwork, coffered ceilings and a fully-enclosed rear courtyard with sparkling pool/spa, natural granite outcroppings, columns & covered terraces. Luxurious, upscale beauty & tranquility in Granite Bay.
What makes this home so uniquely livable is that it is so thoughtfully designed. The original owners have entertained 80 people at a sit-down luncheon/fashion show, hosted a four-day family reunion for 23 and closed the doors to the outside world to bask alone in the privacy and tranquility of the home's central courtyard. Window-walls look out onto the pool and dramatic courtyard from virtually every room in the house, flooding the interior with light while remaining shaded from the hot sun. Rooms consist of four en-suite bedrooms, living room, family room, formal dining room, cook's kitchen, game/media room, exercise room, library/office and a project room or fifth bedroom, along with a very sheltered lanai with TV and a full outdoor kitchen off the courtyard.
All rooms but a guest room and game room are on the main floor. Covered patio space totals almost 3,000 square feet, enhancing outdoor living by providing shelter from both sun and rain. Touch panels throughout the house control the pool, spa, koi pond and twenty-two pairs of speakers, including family room surround sound. The mature landscape designed by Ron Allison includes avocado, apple, peach, pear, pomegranate, orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime trees, grape vines and raised vegetable beds.
Two large equipment rooms isolate the home's utilities and pool equipment, providing silent operation and plenty of additional storage space. Distributed appliances (four dishwashers, ten refrigerators, two trash compactors), programmed lighting, radiant floor heating with in-room thermostats, an elevator, electric and pool solar panels, fire sprinklers, monitored alarm system, distributed audio/video and Crestron home automation technology add convenience, cost savings, safety and comfort to the spacious layout. Care was taken to ensure a trouble-free, low-maintenance home, combining elegance with versatility and functionality.
