Welcome to this charming English Tudor manor with roots dating back to 1936, stylishly updated interiors, resort-inspired grounds, and a spacious guest house. Providing seclusion and privacy, a long driveway leads you to this captivating property introduced through columns topped with stone-carved pineapple finals – a signature of friendship and hospitality. Towering redwoods and a colorful rose garden enhance the setting while vast stretches of synthetic lawn wrap the entire home with thoughtful consideration for today’s drought conditions.
The main residence is beautifully appointed with classic and timeless finishes that include hewn-finished hardwood floors on the main level, leaded glass accent windows, and refined millwork. Traditional formal venues are complemented by a kitchen and adjoining family room that is perfect for today’s style of living. There is also a handsomely appointed library/office with outside entrance that is just right for today’s work-from-home needs. Rounding out the main level is a spacious, bright and light bedroom suite with pool access. Upstairs, the home’s three additional bedrooms include the primary suite, which spans one entire side of the home and features tremendous customized wardrobe space and an all-marble luxe bath. Adding to the accommodations is a large 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest house with full kitchen that doubles as a poolside entertainment venue.
The grounds are designed for quintessential California living complete with 8-hole putting green, large pool, separate spa, fireplace terrace with barbecue center, plus a second barbecue poolside.
