The house sits in a very quiet and small cul-de-sac shared with only one property. Luxury and style start with the custom staining of the driveway and the backyard lozenge-shaped concrete slabs that matches the stucco paint, and the beautiful varnished slate tiles of the entrance and front patio. It continues with the lush and meticulous landscaping that is simply magical. Majestic tall palm trees sway in the year-around ocean breeze, numerous Bougainvilliers, exotic and sweet-smelling shrubs, and tons of planters with colorful flowers will make you enjoy at its fullest outdoor living. A marble Jacuzzi with waterfall, sunken remote, an outdoor dining room, a huge fire pit with sitting areas and a custom built marble Barbecue island with fridge will make you feel in your private little Paradise. No need for an alarm clock, singing birds will wake you up in the morning. The house itself exudes warmth and style, with an architecturally distinct use of wood beams on the facades that bring shade to the private front patio. Two large balconies enhance the outdoor experience, one on the front and one off the Master that is perfect to relax on lounge chairs or to have breakfast under the shade of tall trees. Inside, elaborate custom white crown molding and baseboards in every single room, cathedral ceilings in most rooms, expansive windows with plantation shutters and white cabinets make for an extremely airy, natural light-filled and flowing living space. There is a downstairs bedroom, perfect as an office. The 2 secondary bedrooms, one with a walking-in closet have French doors opening on the South-facing balcony. Oversized kitchen is airy, has marble counters, white cabinets and white/stainless KitchenAid appliances, and family and living rooms have huge doors opening onto the garden. There are a new Jacuzzi heater and dual-zoned air-conditioning, sophisticated computerized outdoor low-voltage lighting and irrigation with water-saving drip system.
