The elegant main home is a 4br/3ba, nearly 4000 sq. ft., two-story, gated estate with central heat/AC, a spectacular gourmet kitchen, abundant high end architectural details and custom finishes, fine furnishings, and the entire home is floored in honed hickory hardwood made even more comfortable with the addition of many beautiful area rugs. The accommodations can also include a lovely, spacious 1br/1ba loft above the 3-car garage.
Abundant parking and outdoor amenities include a large, seating-wall enclosed, dining patio with plenty of outdoor furniture for your entertainment enjoyment, a generous full-featured outdoor BBQ for your grilling pleasure, a 40' x 18' in ground pool including an inset spa to comfortably seat 8 guests, a generous pool deck with chaise lounges and umbrellas, a stunning 16' redwood slap picnic table, nestled in the shade of two mature black walnut trees, and a Kettler outdoor ping pong table. And just across the driveway is a workout room with Precor treadmill, an Elliptical trainer, mats and light weights.
From the front entry hall, find a welcoming view through the library to a beautiful antique rug, round table and oversized handcrafted Mexican vase, and further on through the sliding glass doors to a generous wrap-around veranda overlooking a grass lawn edged by flower beds, olive and oak trees and vineyards beyond. Turn just to your left and move down the window-lined hallway to find the true heart of Tertulia – a generous kitchen worthy of the most discriminating chef.
From the 6-burner plus griddle, double oven, stainless steel professional Wolf range with commercial vent hood, to the gigantic butcher block center island, to the two oversized stainless steel sinks with disposals, large refrigerator/freezer, Bosch dish washer, and beautiful soapstone countertops and backsplashes.
The kitchen transitions to an informal dining room with a large farmhouse table seating up to 12, a floor-to-ceiling antique oak hutch, and double sliding French doors opening to the arbor-covered side entry that looks out onto the two beautiful old black walnut trees and beautiful redwood picnic picnic table. Beyond the walnut trees, discover the planter boxes filled with organically grown seasonal herbs and vegetables for your use.
From the informal dining area, it is a couple of steps up into the living area with two large sofas – one of which opens to a queen sleeper, a lovely wool area rug, twin coffee tables, two leather cube stools, and a large entertainment center anchored by a wall-mounted Samsung 55” LED 3-D TV with a Sony Blu-ray player, Yamaha surround sound receiver, Xbox 360, whole house WiFi, and a DISH HD receiver. Wharfedale speaker towers stand on each side of the entertainment center providing a great audio experience in the living area, and the home has a whole house sound system with ceiling-mounted speakers in the kitchen, living room, formal dining room, and Master Suite.
Beyond the formal living room is the formal dining room with recessed lighting. Past the dining room is the large antique rug that welcomed you as you entered the formal front entry.
To your right, look in on the library to find coffered ceilings, a cozy gas log fireplace with comfortable oversize chairs, a large ottoman and throws, book cases filled with bound treasures to satisfy a range of tastes, and a Baldwin upright piano for the musically inclined. Continue past the library through the door to the right and find a generous private first-floor bedroom with its own shaded glass exterior door to the side veranda. This bedroom has a queen bed, end tables and lamps, an overstuffed leather chair with ottoman, a large armoire, and a Tivoli audio system.
Returning to the library, continue through to the entry again and down the hallway to the staircase. First discover the full bath at the foot of the stairs, with a large tiled walk-in shower, and lovely pedestal sink. Then follow the banistered stairs to the second floor. First pass the quiet pocket-doored laundry room with a new large Maytag washer and dryer set, iron and ironing board, and the large linen closet just across the hall.
On the left is the large Master Suite with a beautiful ebony wood 4-poster king bed, antique wood and marble topped nightstands, beautiful lamps, an iHome clock radio docking station, a comfortable leather chair with ottoman, a large 8-drawer dresser, a wall-mounted Samsung 46” LED HD TV with DISH HD receiver, a small pocket-doored, walk-in closet, and a set of glass sliding doors leading to the Master’s balcony. The connected Master bath features a lovely clawfoot soaking tub and an extra large walk-in shower with rainforest showerhead.
Across from the Master Suite are the third and fourth bedrooms, both with queen beds, wall-mounted Samsung 32” HD TVs with DISH HD receivers. Completing the upstairs is a shared, third full bath with a large pedestal sink and a large tiled walk-in shower.
