“A California-style Ranch Home”

Spring—Fall 2013 Listing


     This beautiful California ranch home was designed and built in the Manor Country Club community by its original owner for his wife, who grew up in the California wine country. Starting in 2007, the home was completely renovated adding many new, elegant and exciting features, personifying one-floor living at its best!

     One enters the home from a circular stone terrace that has a large planter and trees, to a covered porch and wood entry door that leads inside to a foyer. The foyer is part of a long hallway that extends the length of the home, in both directions. From the foyer, one looks directly ahead to an elegantly decorated and spacious living room with a center fireplace, lovely hardwood floors, and French glass doors that lead outside to another stone terrace and a beautifully landscaped backyard. Adjacent to the living room is the equally elegant dining room, accessed through an open entryway. It also has a large window that overlooks the back terrace. The home features hardwood floors throughout this level.

     From the left of the foyer and down that hallway is a large, country-style family room with a huge stone fireplace, on the front, courtyard side of the home. The fireplace was added as part of the renovation. The family room merges into a beautiful, gourmet kitchen which features a center island and lovely, custom wood cabinetry with white marble countertops. To the left of the main kitchen area is a banquet/breakfast table with a corner windowseat that overlooks the front of the home. To the right of the island is a space filled with additional cabinetry and a large hutch, beyond which is a charming morning or reading room, that has a wall of built-ins with bookcases in white, and French glass doors that also exit outside to the back stone terrace.
     At the opposite end of the hallway and to the right of the foyer, are four spacious bedrooms, including the elegant master bedroom suite which has a beautiful, renovated master bath with elegant tilework, soaking tub and separate shower, and raised sink basins. The master bedroom also features a spacious dressing area with closets. From the master bedroom, there is a second cross hallway with a boy’s bedroom, a hall bath, as well as two girls’ bedrooms; one with its own private bath; all of which have been renovated as well.

   Opposite the family room on the other end of the hallway is an entrance to a short flight of stairs going to the lower level basement which features a fully carpeted, cozy media/sitting area, and a nice pool table space beyond. On this level there is also a half-bath and a utility room, and an exit outside to a side-load garage with a wide driveway that runs the side length of the home.

    The back of the home features a gorgeous stone terrace and yard with a large stone fish pond, that sits beneath a big evergreen tree. There are stone steps that takes one back down to the driveway from the hillside to the left of the pond, with pretty landscaping on the hillside. Both the front and back terraces surrounding this home offer elegant entertaining possibilties as well as beautiful, tranquil private spaces for outdoor enjoyment. This home is a gem!
