Description:

Amidst the splendor of the prestigious Linda Vista neighborhood resides this jewel, complete with all the luxuries of a 5-star hotel. Completely remodeled in 2007, no detail was left unattended and all was masterfully accomplished by its general contractor-owner (who also worked on Donald Rumsfeld’s homes). The result is all-embracing comfort: from the serene lighting and Brazilian Pearwood floors, to the gourmet kitchen and the incomparable spa master bathroom. The exceptional features start with the home’s charming Spanish design anchored by its impressive solid wood front door. The front enclosed courtyard with overhead pergola is literally bursting with floral color provided by bougainvillea and lush pansy baskets. Inside, the living room invites you to linger, embraced by its natural materials: the hardwood floor, the wood paneling on the soaring ceiling, the exposed Douglas fir beams, and the red brick hearth fireplace with curly redwood mantle. The room has 6.1 surround sound with JVC recessed wall speakers and plenty of windows.  Walk through the adjacent dining area to the masterpiece kitchen: Jerusalem gold limestone tile flooring, green chocolate mint granite counters, cherry custom built Kraftmaid wood cabinets with soft close drawers, including spice drawers and pantry cabinets, two sink areas and stainless steel appliances including a Miele built-in espresso machine.  The chef’s dream come true continues with the Sub-Zero fridge, Wolf double convection ovens, the Wolf 6-burner with grill range and overhead hood located on the kitchen island that also has a breakfast bar with side wine racks underneath. The dishwasher, microwave and wine fridge are all GE Monogram. The main stainless steel sink features a Kohler aquifer water filter and goose neck Kohler faucet. Off the kitchen is the laundry room with extra cabinets. Down the hallway are the three bedrooms- all with good sized closets, ceiling fans, and wiring for video panels and enclosed speakers. The guest bathroom has limestone flooring, a seamless glass two person shower with 10, yes, 10 Kohler shower heads and mosaic tile floor. The sink is Duravit and the toilet is Kohler touchless. The master bedroom has complete privacy from the rest of the home with two French doors that open out to the deck for plenty of cool evening breeze. The master bathroom has an extra long and deep champagne bubble spa tub, a seamless glass shower with a Kohler WaterTile rain overhead showering panel as well as four additional Kohler shower heads mounted vertically.   The toilet room features a heated Toto Washlet Bidet Seat. Outside the French doors of the third bedroom (currently used as a den) is the redwood deck with a Ducane stainless steel gas grill. Watch the 4th of July Rose Bowl fireworks while dining al fresco! There’s an additional shaded patio off the garage and a nice sized grassy playing area within the fully enclosed backyard. The 2-car garage is extra wide for storage. The home also includes copper plumbing, upgraded electric, newer sewer line, newer central air and heat, insulation in attic and under house, Pella between-the-glass-blinds windows and doors, enclosed speakers throughout, slab pine solid doors throughout, metal gutters, and automatic sprinklers front and back. Sophisticated living starts here.
