Property Description: This stunning Italian Villa of incomparable architectural style and exceptional floor plan with spacious bedrooms is located in a private gated development of only 5 homes. Surrounded by chain-link fence that has a landscaped covering and bordered on the open side by a fresh-water stream, the entire complex is very secure. Entry to the development can only be made by invitation with a home-owner activating the gate.
A fee of only $100/month includes security guard and the grounds meticulously maintained by the development. The development also furnishes and maintains for the private and exclusive use of the residents and their guests a concrete walk/bike path around the complex, a community park, tennis courts/basketball court and rancho.
The first thing you notice upon entering this home is all the natural lighting. Large windows and glass block allow you to take advantage of the sunlight. Terraces on the second floor provide awesome views of the valley below. A patio off the kitchen allows you to relax and enjoy the spring-like weather and the beautiful gardens that surround it. You will spend many hours out here taking it easy, entertaining guests or preparing a feast on the built in BBQ.
The home has many fine details, from the wood-burning stone fireplace in the living room to the Jenn-Aire appliances in the kitchen which were imported from the US. The Jenn-Aire range has a gas cook-top and an electric oven. The microwave oven doubles as a conventional oven. Also in the kitchen, you will find European cabinetry and modern lighting. Each of the bathrooms has its own built-in hair dryer and marble countertops. The home also features security TV monitors on the first floor and master bedroom on the second floor as well as a security alarm. Ceramic tile and wood adorn the floors throughout this stylish home. Each bedroom is wired for phones and has its own DirecTV connection. The kitchen and bathrooms have their own separate water heating systems, so there is never a shortage of hot water for a shower. The home is wired for 110v and 220v electricity.
A spiral staircase in the master bedroom takes you to a loft area that can serve as an office, exercise area or private reading library. A Jacuzzi tub is tucked neatly around the corner in the master bath. Glass block in this room lets in the natural light. A large walk-in closet is just inside the entrance to the master bath. One bedroom includes a separate sitting area with big windows to take in the panoramic views of the central valley. The other bedroom has its own terrace so that you can relax while enjoying the fantastic sunsets.
