Custom wrought-iron gates and tropical trees frame the entrance to this luxurious and elegant 5 BR/4.5 BA, 5400 SF Mediterranean-style home. Fountains and foliage lead to an arched entryway with alcoves and lights embedded in the stucco exterior. The elegant style continues inside, where a gleaming marble foyer reflects subtle color-washed walls. Dramatic pillars and gracefully curved high ceilings create a palatial but welcoming escape for you and your guests.
The marble foyer leads to a semi-circle of rooms designed for entertaining in style. To either side are distinct living rooms, while between the two are a spacious gourmet kitchen, breakfast nook, and a sitting area perfect for formal dining. The entire space features hardwood floors, sculpted ceilings, and full views over the spacious trellised deck outside. Natural light from multiple double French doors and windows look out over panoramic views without compromising privacy.
The gourmet kitchen features chef-grade appliances, including a 6-burner gas range, convection oven, steamer oven, warming drawer and built-in specialty coffee center and a vaulted ceiling with recessed lighting. A custom tilework range backsplash complements the marble workspaces throughout. The striking butcher-block island harmonizes with the exotic Australian gum floors.
The breakfast nook is surrounded by gently arched windows and completes the open space starting in the kitchen, continuing through the primary living room with tile-framed fireplace and wet bar. French doors from the living room and off the kitchen open to the deck. The second living room provides a distinct sitting area next to the master wing with its own fireplace, half bath and plenty of room to house an art collection and a grand piano.
The carpeted master bedroom suite has its own fireplace, French doors to a private deck, windows with views, and a recessed ceiling. The gleaming light-filled marble bathroom is spacious enough for two separate sink and cabinet areas flanking the oversized entry. A large jetted tub with privacy sheers, an enclosed steam shower with dual shower heads and marble bench, and a separate toilet room complete the spa-style ensemble.
Three more carpeted bedrooms grace the main floor, one currently in use as an office with extensive custom shelving. Two bedrooms with their own private sinks occupy a separate wing alongside another two bathrooms. One features artisan marble and tile work, while the second bathroom ensures complete privacy in the luxurious guest area. Follow a spiral, hardwood staircase with a domed ceiling and wrought-iron railing down to a separate living space with its own kitchen, patio access, bedroom, bath, and music studio.
A spacious laundry room with tile counters and ample storage, large linen closet, wine cellar with shelving for hundreds of bottles, and a three-car garage with ample electrical service for electric vehicle charging complete the layout.
Lush gardens, walking paths, fountains, benches, and statues meander through the landscaped yard. Inside and out, the artisan craftsmanship, curves of window arches and ceilings, gleam of marble and wood, and panoramic views transform these rooms into an elegant, palatial home. Located in the gated Pasatiempo golf, pool and tennis community.
