This split-level contemporary Aptos home uses architectural angles to make the most of a spectacular setting. The entrance is framed by neatly landscaped hedges and a graceful willow tree, leading to a walkway and patio to the front door, shaded by an angled trellis.
Inside the 3 BR/3.5 BA, 3270 SF home is a stunning living room with a wall of windows overlooking the treetops and a deck. The living room’s angled, wood ceiling with exposed beams echoes the gleaming hardwood floors and trim below. Built-in shelves and a gas fireplace add warmth, with one of the sets of shelves doubling as a door that swings open to the living quarters above.
Up a half level is a formal dining area with hardwood floors, a large window overlooking the same view, and a skylight to let in even more light. The dining room flows to an open kitchen with maple cabinets, tile counters, a punch-out window, a separate pantry, and chef-grade appliances (including a Bosch dishwasher, Jennair gas range, and Kenmore Elite oven). Up a half a level is a cozy den with an angled wood ceiling, hardwood floors, and walls of built-in shelves. The carpeted master suite has a vaulted ceiling, ceiling fan, recessed lights, walk-in closet, and a wall-embedded gas fireplace surrounded by tile work. A combination of skylights, windows at different heights, and oversized sliding double doors to a patio area let in natural light and views of the artfully landscaped, colorful back garden, as well as access to a hot tub. A stunning master bath features a tile-enclosed Jacuzzi tub, double sinks, windows with views of the treetops, recessed lights in a vaulted ceiling, and custom tile work throughout. A second carpeted master suite includes a wood angled ceiling with exposed beams and bathroom with separate shower. A third bathroom has the same wood, angled ceiling, a skylight, tile floor, and a tile-enclosed shower/tub. A third carpeted bedroom with a spacious closet, wood angled ceiling, and views completes the living areas. Downstairs there is a bonus room with a space for a wine cellar
A two-car garage with a half-bath, deck with an outdoor shower, an additional 1 car garage space or storage area, are also part of the property, which is surrounded by lush gardens and mature trees.
Distinctive architecture, high-end natural materials, artful landscaping, and a unique layout that lets in light and greenery give this stunning Aptos home an open, elegant feel, perfect for families and visitors alike.
