Property Description

Bradbury estate-like living at an exceptional value. Welcome to the exclusive neighborhood of Duarte Mesa, and the Arboretum of Duarte, as this exclusive home is known. The low-slung ranch home with an Asian-style roof line sits on a half acre lot with over 65 species of plants, including Jacaranda, conifers, oak, and a variety of fruit trees from key lime to pomegranate to apple. Enter this private oasis through the electric driveway gate on the newly paved circular driveway and open the custom leaded glass and wood front door. Inside there is an instant feeling of serenity and harmony. The eye passes through the foyer with porcelain floors into the open living room/dining room and out through the wall of glass into the completely private, lush and beautifully landscaped backyard.

The living room features recessed lights, gas fireplace with brick surround, blonde ash laminate floors, a sleek bronze chandelier over the dining area, and a large skylight filling the area with natural light.

The kitchen boasts another large skylight, Corian counters with decorative tile backsplash, directional focus 3” recessed lights, a 5-burner stovetop with hood vent, plenty of counter space, natural wood cabinets with new brushed nickel hardware, and an informal dining area with a new pendant light. Next to the kitchen is the laundry area and powder room. Down the hallway with plentiful closets are two carpeted bedrooms with large windows and a full bathroom with new 3-light pendant and brushed nickel framed mirror and fixtures.

The spacious master bedroom suite with Travertine tile floors and Shoji-style closet doors is its own peaceful retreat tucked away in the most quiet corner of the home. The master bathroom was updated by the current owner with seamless enlarged glass shower and double sink quartz counters.

The fourth bedroom is accessed from both the master suite and the backyard, giving it a wide variety of possibilities for use as a nursery, guest quarters, or office, as it is currently being used. It features closets on both sides of the room, Travertine flooring and an expansive window offering a breathtaking view of the valley below.

Step out to the serene backyard where you can feel the ocean breeze and enjoy the expansive views. The top level of the terraced backyard has two pergolas and a veranda with Saltillo tile flooring providing plenty of space for entertaining. On the lower level is a koi pond, also protected by a pergola offering a shady haven while you listen to the soothing sounds of the fountain. From there, follow the brick path to survey the remainder of the estate-like yard.

This home has been meticulously cared for by the current owner, an engineer with an eye for detail. The home offers double pane wood framed Andersen windows, whole house security system, whole house fan, water softener, reverse osmosis filtered water at kitchen sink, Caroma low-flow toilets, and an oversized garage with plenty of extra cabinets and loft storage.

Here’s an opportunity to acquire a true heritage home, combining the best of luxury, serenity and outdoor comfort.
