This almost 6,200-square-foot custom-designed highly symmetrical home is set on three acres of property replete with towering California oaks, all nestled in the Santa Lucia Mountains hugging the beautiful central coast of California, and just a few minutes drive to charming Carmel.
This zen-inspired home with its touches of Asian aesthetics and eucalyptus-wood walls throughout, features a large ensuite master bedroom with attention to every detail, including limestone floors with flush wool carpets under the custom-designed bed, dual walk-in closets, a master bath featuring limestone countertops and an oversized limestone shower. The home also features two private ensuite guest rooms, with large walk-in closets featuring built-in luggage stands for ease of use for guests.
The generous living areas of the home feature barrel-vaulted ceilings with custom, dramatic lighting throughout and many transom-topped windows optimizing the natural lighting diffused by the surrounding oaks. There are three fireplaces, including two custom-designed ones of eucalyptus, hand-rubbed bronze and hand-selected river rocks, one each in the formal living room and formal dining room. There is also a fireplace in the hearth room adjoining the chef’s kitchen featuring a Gaggenau cooktop and steamer, Dacor warming drawers and a custom-designed Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer with extra drawers and shelves. Adjoining the kitchen is an outdoor patio with a chef’s professional grill and electric retractable awning. An adjoining butler’s pantry features a Miele washer/dryer system. Additionally, there is a climate-controlled oak wine cellar with limestone floor and custom wine racks to hold more than 300 bottles.
The home is built in a U-shape showcasing a private, multi-tiered cascading waterfall set amidst towering, dramatically-lit California oaks. The winding drive to the front of the home is lined on either side with oak trees, ending in a circle drive and a discretely-placed three-car garage. Finally, this lovely home is topped in dramatic fashion with a barrel zinc roof constructed in France.
