What would it be like to step into the pages of the kinds of homes featured in glossy magazines like Architectural Digest? This sleek, modern showpiece answers that question. A shielded private front patio and walkway set it off from the street, with an angled pergola over the front door and walkway that echoes the roofline.

Inside, an open floor plan lets the natural light and materials shine: hardwood floors, paneled angled ceilings with exposed beams and recessed LED lights, sliding and French doors on all sides, and a gleaming modern kitchen. The French doors lead from the living room to a second, outdoor living room at the front of the house, connected by a gas fireplace. A back patio offers even more entertaining and seating options, all surrounded by low-maintenance foliage, mature hedges, and a thriving Meyer lemon tree.

The custom-built walnut kitchen cabinets have a streamlined, European feel, balanced with chef-grade stainless appliances, Quartz counters, marble subway tiles rising from the counters to the ceiling on two walls, pneumatic hinged cabinet doors with frosted glass, and a stain- and chip-resistant Silgranite sink with a boiling water dispenser. A central island divides the large room, with a breakfast bar on one side. In addition to the plentiful storage in the kitchen itself, an adjoining walk-in pantry offers even more space with custom shelving that keeps everything visible.

The three spacious bedrooms all have hardwood floors, LED lights, European-style closets, and en suite bathrooms. A ground floor bedroom opens through oversized sliding doors to the private back deck, ringed by greenery. The bathroom features double sinks, Porcelanosa floor tiles, and a laundry area behind accordion panel doors.

Upstairs are two other bedrooms, including a stunning master suite with treetop views through multiple custom windows, recessed LED lights in the angled ceiling, ample closet space, dual shower with a fold-down teak bench, custom bathrooms cabinetry, tile, and lighting.

Just steps from Rio del Mar beaches and the Forest of Nisene Marks, this elegant home is anchored in a friendly neighborhood, full of families of all sizes and ages who are strongly connected through an active Next Door group with 700 active members. The home is ready for graciously greeting your new neighbors, and for memorable gatherings with your family and friends who will enjoy circulating through the many indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, shielded from the street noise by mature hedges, wisteria vines, and flowering camellias, illuminated by the glow of the indoor/outdoor fireplace and overhead lights that make this architectural modern marvel look festive and inviting, no matter what the occasion may be.
