This gorgeous Mission style home features clean lines, a beautiful open flow, and incredible finishes and fixtures. Custom built by Harry Purdom, this home is designed to blur the lines between and indoor and outdoor living. Huge windows and carefully chosen materials create visual connections with nature in every room, and the expansive Trex composite deck expands your living space into your stunning back yard. Rich hardwoods flow throughout your main floor, where your open living room, kitchen, and casual dining enjoy views of your stunning yard. Your study and master suite are situated at the east end of your home, where marble tile and a luxurious free-standing tub are the focal point of your master bath. At the opposite end of your home, your guest suite is also beautifully appointed and ready for overnight visitors. Three additional bedrooms, each with a private ensuite, are located upstairs just past the game room. In the bright and spacious walk-out basement you will find a large space that can easily accommodate three distinct gathering areas. A full bath downstairs allows you to configure your basement as a separate suite if desired. There is even a covered patio and putting green just outside the glass door. Thoughtfully selected finishes in this home include gorgeous chrome fixtures, custom door hardware, a full suite of Thermador appliances, and rich wood trim throughout. Safety and security features include landscape lighting, a storm shelter in the basement, a water purification system, and foam insulation. Set on two full acres and surrounded by exquisite landscaping, this home enjoys gorgeous country views while keeping you close to every amenity you desire.
As you open the front door, gorgeous picture windows and natural materials make this incredible home feel like a seamless extension of your beautifully landscaped property. Rich hardwood floors extend in every direction, their warm tones echoed in ceiling beams, door frames, and stunning barn doors. Huge windows stream natural light and invite the outdoors into every room. Stepping into the entry, the heart of this home opens before you, its clean lines and perfectly executed Mission style imparting a simple elegance that is warm and welcoming. Your study and master suite are situated to the right of the entry while guest quarters are on the opposite side of your home.
From the entry your formal dining is immediately to your left. Windows extend from the floor nearly to the ceiling, showing off your front porch and incredible front yard. Wood floors and a feature wall of exterior brick create strong indoor-outdoor connections in this beautiful space. Opposite the windows, short hall between the butler’s pantry and wine room connects you to your kitchen.
It is the living room, however, that first captures your attention as you walk through the front door. Stunning views of the deck and back yard are visible through multiple windows that spill natural light into this space. Richly stained beams at the ceiling add a cozy feel. The floor to ceiling fireplace is dressed in exterior brick that echoes the outdoor fireplace visible on the back deck. A back wall of glass doors opens fully for a seamless flow between your indoor and outdoor living. Back inside, a large pass through keeps your living room open to your kitchen while a wide doorway is open to your casual dining.
Wood floors continue into your kitchen and casual dining. Situated toward the front of your home, the kitchen boasts abundant cabinetry with pullouts for trash and recycling. Light quartz counters around the perimeter and at the island offer abundant workspace. Casual seating at both the living room pass-through and the large center island invite conversation as you prepare meals together. Both beautiful and practical, a full suite of Thermador appliances stand ready to help. Other thoughtful touches include a stainless apron-fronted sink that overlooks the living room fireplace and an additional prep sink in the island, both with garbage disposals. A pocket door near the large pantry connects you to a landing between both garages, making it easy to unload groceries after a shopping trip. This area also accesses your guest bath and the stair to the basement.
At the other end of your kitchen, your long casual dining table is centered under a beautiful chandelier. Multiple windows frame your back deck and a glass door provides easy access to the built-in grill. A gorgeous barn door along the side wall opens to a hall with a thoughtful home management center, laundry room, and guest bedroom.
Back at the entry, on your right another stunning barn door opens to an inspiring study. Dark gray tile offers a soothing contrast to the rich wood baseboards and picks up on the stone in the dry creek bed visible through huge front windows. A Japanese maple outside your window is a gorgeous focal point. Spacious proportions and abundant natural light create a serene workspace you won’t want to leave.
Just past the study, a hall leading to your left contains a beautiful powder bath where a wall mounted faucet pours into a vessel sink of carved stone. Past the powder bath, the hall ends at your tranquil master retreat. Hardwood floors give way to cushiony carpet and enormous windows showcase your back yard. A private door opens to a stepping stone path through beautiful ground cover and low bubbling fountains to connect you to your back deck. Retractable blinds at the windows and door offer unobstructed views during the day but lower to provide privacy and light control at night.
Opposite the windows, double doors open to your incredible master bath. Large format marble tile on the floor continues up and around your huge doorless shower at the end of the room. A ceiling mounted rain shower, in addition to a wall mounted shower head and hand sprayer, ensures a luxurious bathing experience. Glass blocks around the top of the shower are repeated at the stunning wood feature wall behind your gorgeous free-standing tub. Rich wood vanities offer additional warmth against the marble and float on the wall for a clean, modern touch. Wood tones are repeated in your master closet, where custom cabinetry offers a plethora of drawers, shoe shelves, hanging space, and even a spot for your ironing board. Soft carpet cushions your bare feet as you get ready for your day.
On the opposite side of your home, through the barn door near your kitchen table, a clever built-in desk offers a great place for tackling homework, paying bills, or planning meals. Thoughtfully situated, this home management center is conveniently located for daily tasks yet is out of sight when guests drop by.
On the same hall, your guest suite includes a comfortable bedroom with plush carpet and a large walk-in closet. A bright window offers peaceful views of your back yard. A full bath adjoins this room. Guests will appreciate the long quartz counter and the beautiful shower with wall-mounted rainshower head. A second door opens to the hall between your garages.
Your laundry room is situated near your kitchen, just on the other side of your home management desk. This space is designed to be as beautiful as it is hardworking, with huge windows that flood the space with light and provide visual connections with your back yard. Cabinets painted a soft green offer loads of storage and the expansive quartz countertops provide plenty of space for folding clothes. There is even a spot for an extra fridge and a utility closet for brooms and a vacuum cleaner. A door at the end of your laundry room opens to a dog run with a gate out to your back yard.
Toward the front of your home, both of your double garages are accessed from a landing just off your kitchen and pantry. Both garages are oversized with epoxy floors and double bay doors. The side-entry garage has a weathered wood feature wall along the front and a long niche under the windows that is the perfect spot for a workbench and tool cabinet. The front-entry garage has a slatwall system for tool storage in addition to a garage system that extends along the entire side wall. This garage has several feet of extra length, with a single bay door at the back so that lawn equipment can be moved in and out directly from the back yard. There is also an attached greenhouse that boasts shelves of Trex decking, a center drain in the floor, a large stainless utility sink, and a faucet for a garden hose. Multiple windows and skylights bring in loads of natural light so that your plants will thrive in this well-designed space.
Your hardwood stair is bathed in sunlight from a row of windows that follow the stair upward. Both the rich hardwoods and the natural light continue into a spacious room on the second floor, perfect for a ping pong table or a large screen tv and comfy seating. Past the game room, three generous bedrooms are comfortable and welcoming with walk-in closets and windows with beautiful views. Each room also has a private ensuite with a quartz-topped vanity and a wall-mounted rainshower head. The same attention to detail found on the first floor carries through upstairs, creating an elegant and inviting extension of your living space.
Between your kitchen and owner’s entry, a second stair leads down to a walk-out basement. Large windows and glass doors keep this space bright and cheerful. A full bath, complete with a walk-in shower tiled to the ceiling, enables the basement to be configured as a separate suite if you so desire. There are three distinct gathering areas that flow easily into one another and offer enormous versatility to create the space of your dreams. A large storage room keeps items stored neatly out of sight and doubles as a storm shelter. Outside, a covered patio offers a shady spot to sit and relax while waiting your turn on the adjacent putting green, or to simply sit and soak in the gorgeous views of your incredible 2 acre property.
Set back on a quiet culdesac, this gorgeous home is framed by impeccable landscaping. A long salted concrete drive leads past an expansive lawn to arrive at the car court between your double garages. From here a salted concrete walkway wanders past incredible beds that burst with bright flowers, beautiful shades of green, and plants in a variety of heights and textures. Mature trees dot the beds, offering shade and beauty. A dry creek bed runs through, and the walkway continues over this to arrive a front porch that welcomes you with rocking chairs and a gorgeous garden view. Your home itself is a stunning example of the Mission style, with light brick contrasting the richly stained wood lintels and corbels. Small square windows near the metal roof are repeated in several places for continuity while huge picture windows glow warmly in the evenings. Both the exterior brick and the richly stained wood are repeated inside the home to further connect your indoor and outdoor spaces.
Your back yard is equally impressive, with a vast lawn that extends into a beautifully treed area toward the back of your property. This tranquil setting is perfect for a hammock and a glass of iced tea on a lazy afternoon! Clever landscaping echoes the dry creek from the front and injects bursts of color and texture into your back yard. Moving up toward your home, your main indoor living area opens onto an expansive Trex composite deck. Cozy seating is centered around your outdoor fireplace while family and friends gather at the outdoor dining table as you grill up a savory feast. Electric shades lower to fully enclose your deck while the back wall of your living room opens completely for a seamless flow between these spaces. A heater offers welcome warmth on cooler evenings. From the east side of your deck, a stepping stone path leads through gorgeous ground cover and bubbling rock gardens to your private master suite. Below the deck, your walk-out basement opens to a large putting green framed with holly on either side. Large windows in every room of your home take full advantage of your gorgeous property, for a serene retreat that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living.
