Far from the urban chaos sits this treasured 1925 English Tudor Manor, just recently updated. Situated across from Johnson Lake and surrounded by vining wisteria, you can hear the bullfrogs at night and wake to the fragrance of eucalyptus and roses by day. This is truly executive heaven. Up the winding driveway, there is garage space for 4 cars all with additional storage space. The main entrance opens into a grand living room with 30 foot, exposed beam vaulted ceilings, a floor to ceiling window that looks out onto an Italian fountain, and a prominent slate hearth fireplace. The kitchen has been dramatically remodeled with Venetian Gold granite countertops, espresso brown cabinetry in the cooking island, honey maple stained original cabinetry elsewhere, oil rubbed bronze fixtures, stainless steel appliances including a Viking fridge, a holding fridge, and wine cooler. The kitchen opens out to a family room with a travertine fireplace and soaring 30 foot ceiling. From here one can pass through French doors to the lap pool area with a lovely rose garden to one side and wood deck with cabana to the other side. Upstairs is (2) bedrooms; a palatial master bedroom with 20 foot vaulted ceiling, a third fireplace, 5 star bathroom with no seam glass shower, 2 person deep Jacuzzi tub, 2 sinks with marble countertops and large space for walk-in closet. A second bedroom with full bath is down the hallway. On the ground level is the third bedroom that can also be converted to a library if needed.The pool is solar heated. There is an emergency gas pump with fire hose. There is a separate guest house(4th bedroom is in guest house) with river rock fireplace, full kitchen, high exposed beam ceiling and private back patio.
