About This Property
One of a kind custom built home tucked down a gated cobblestone driveway offering total privacy in the San Carlos Hills. Built for the current owner 20 years ago it has been meticulously maintained with major improvements added since inception. Solar system owned by seller keeps the PG&E bills at a bare minimum, state of the art dual HVAC system, granite counters, designer moldings, planation shutters, power blinds, custom stained glass, built-in cabinetry to hold today's TV offerings, gas fueled fireplaces, drought friendly Heavenly Greens and an additional 2 car brick garage are just a small sampling of the improvements made.
About 5000 square feet of luxury with most on the main entry level so stairs are not part of your everyday life. The 17 foot high foyer offers your first glimpse of the lush hill views that you will find from all but one room in the home. From the leaded glass entry doors to the arched window with a custom stained glass piece of art in the foyer is where your tour begins to discover what this special home has to offer on just this level. Through the sliding doors is one of 3 decks to enjoy the verdant views. To the left you will find the formal living and dining rooms with 14' tray ceilings and extensive custom moldings adding elegance to any furniture style. Massive light comes in through the windows and the hardwood floors give a warm background to your favorite area rugs. Just a few steps further you are in the open concept kitchen and family room with a crowd sized wet bar. The massive island is where your family and friends will want to gather and for you never to be left out of the conversation. Spacious granite counters, 5 burner Dacor gas range, double ovens, a convection and microwave of course, trash compactor, built in refrigerator and walk in pantry are for the cook or cooks in the family. Perfect for entertaining the wet bar sits between the 14' x 15' breakfast room and family room truly making this wing the heart of the home. 2 glassed-in tiled patios from this area are perfect for morning coffee or a cocktail anytime! The family room is anchored by a gas fueled brick fireplace, built in cabinetry, plantation shutters, peaceful mural scene and hardwood floors with a feature strip defining the space.
To the right of the entry is the bedroom wing offering 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 baths with the first bedroom on the right currently being used as an office with access to the hall bath. On the left is the stunning 17' x 20' master suite offering tray ceilings, a walk in closet, window seat with storage and separate sitting area with another fireplace. Adjacent is the master bath with marble floors and counters, spa tub, shower with dual shower heads, dual sinks and make-up area. There is access to the 3rd bedroom from here making it a perfect nursery, home office or a snoring mate . Finishing up this floor is an efficient laundry room and access to the immaculate 3 car garage.
Downstairs are 2 bedrooms, both measuring about 12' x 14'. One has a huge walk in closet and the full bath offers a double shower and linen closet. These downstairs bedrooms perfect for a nanny, guests, teenagers or separate offices. Under the house are 2 massive storage rooms plus the mechanicals.
The backyard is another wonderful space to explore offering 1.3 acres. Starting from the flagstone patio a gravel path meanders around the house and fully fenced property to keep out the deer from eating what you would like to growth in this perfect south west exposure. Citrus trees and rosemary are thriving along with natural vegetation. The already paid for Sun Solar system is still under warranty and a great cost savings.
