Totaling approximately 3,200SF of indoor and outdoor living, this is one of the only homes similar in size to some multi-floor townhomes, all on one seamless single floor of living. The owners of this home made this their labor of love when they purchased it: Bringing in textures and materials from around the world, outfitting the home with built-in surround sound, motorized shades by Somfy to seamlessly control how much light pours in from your southern facing windows, and Nest thermostats to control your central a/c and heating system. You'll find this home at the end of the hallway providing for even more privacy as you are not immediately across from any of the other homes. As soon as you enter you'll come into the entryway which features a gorgeous Phillip Jeffries Grasscloth on the walls, and a Chevron pattern mosaic floor tile with gray marble wainscot slabs, all adjacent to the homes mudroom/front hall closet where you can hide your winter coats, and where the homes AV and internet equipment is housed Continuing into the heart of the home you'll find the stunning 26' wide living/dining room featuring a HearthCabinet ventless fireplace.

Entertain with ease of going between the living and dining and the homes 60 foot outdoor terrace which is professionally landscaped with built-in irrigation, and features incredible southern and western sky, with breathtaking sunsets. There is also an entrance to the terrace from the master bedroom suite. One of my favorite features of the this incredible home is the chef's kitchen: There is a Miele microwave, as well as a built-in Miele Coffee Espresso Maker. Sleek gray cabinetry through-out which conceals the Sub-Zero Fridge, and the double dishwashers. There is more storage here than most suburban houses! The Wolf Range with a professional hood above has ample space to cook holiday meals, or your casual lunch, heating up leftovers the next day. The backsplash throughout the kitchen features stunning iridescent bronze glass tile and glass panels which can also be found above the wine fridge/bar area.
