Located in a quiet cul de sac in the Eastridge area of Ben Lomond, this custom home is surrounded by mature trees and low walls with inlaid stonework detail. Wide, graceful steps lead to this modern home’s arched entry way. The front door, framed by stained glass, opens to an entry with a slate tile floor, a skylight, angled windows, and the dramatic exposed beams and vaulted ceilings found throughout the house.
Living spaces are arranged in two wings, with an open, flowing kitchen and entertaining space anchoring one end and a master bedroom suite at the other. Joining the two arcs of the house is an expansive deck with separate seating areas, shaded not only by the trees and greenery in the spacious back yard, but with the deck’s own oak tree rising majestically through the deck floor.
The kitchen has custom cherry cabinets, an oak hardwood floor, and a subtle tile backsplash. The black granite Galaxy countertops contrast with the wood and the chef-grade stainless steel appliances, including a double Thermador oven, Miele dishwasher, under-cabinet microwave, built-in wine/beverage refrigerator, and trash compactor. Plenty of light floods the kitchen from multiple sources: a large skylight over the center of the room, recessed lights on all sides, pendant lights over the counter seating area, a wood-framed bay window over the double stainless-steel sinks, and sleek track lights over the stove and sink work areas.
Adjacent to the kitchen are two eating areas an informal breakfast nook and a more formal dining room, both with oak hardwood floors and windows open to the back yard’s greenery, separated by an arched doorway. The dining room features the same vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams as the living room and entryway, and opens through sliding doors to the deck. The dramatic living room continues the dining room’s vaulted, exposed-beam ceilings, adding dual skylights, a wall of windows, a ceiling fan, built-in bookshelves, and a gas fireplace with a spectacular floor-to-ceiling stone hearth.
The high-end natural materials are showcased in the master suite as well, where the bedroom’s vaulted ceiling has an exposed beam and ceiling fan, and wood-framed sliding doors look out on the deck, shielded and shaded by the deck’s oak tree. The carpeted master bedroom includes two walk-in closets and a luxurious bathroom with tile floors, marble counters and tile work surrounding a soaking tub, a dual-nozzle shower with its own skylight and glass-block wall, plenty of storage space, dual sinks, and a bidet. Two other carpeted bedrooms, a half bath, and another bath with inlaid tile work and a shower/tub complete the layout. A carpeted family room has built-in shelves and a brick enclosure for a wood stove.
An attached three car garage with a workshop, storage or shop area leads to the backyard. The laundry, located in the garage has an additional option of a hallway laundry area near the bedrooms. An in home vacuum system makes the house easy to clean.
Warm wood, cool slate and marble, artisan stonework, plentiful windows and skylights every corner of this beautifully designed home brings the outdoors in to combine elegance, comfort, and nature.
