The sun may be summer-afternoon hot, but on this east facing shaded and breezy porch perched high on a ridge top overlooking a nature preserve, it’s chilled-chardonnay cool.
This isn’t just a Sun City Lincoln Hills home, it’s also a home that is elegant and boasts both a covered and gated front courtyard, and a backyard that’s filled with riotous spring flowers that remind one of a secret garden. And another outstanding feature — the home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac, but it’s walking distance from the community center and restaurants.
It’s obvious that the landscaping was expertly designed and is meticulously maintained.
The rear of the home has Japanese maples, lilies and roses galore. It also offers enough lawn to please the pets, and best of all, a waterfall that makes the most beautiful and relaxing sounds that, with windows open, you can hear throughout the house.
This property was designed to bring the outdoors in, with a sliding door entry to the front, shaded courtyard in the kitchen and breakfast room. The rear of the home has extensive shade, as well, and glass doors that lead to the covered patio from both the family room and master bedroom.
The kitchen, filled with light features rich wood floors and natural-colored wood cabinetry, and includes a large island with a veggie sink, a four-burner cook top, double ovens with convection, a built-in microwave and a dishwasher. Countertops appear as though they might be carved from a local granite quarry.
The home has a den or office in the front, with vaulted ceilings and natural light wood built-ins, and an additional bedroom has extensive built-ins, as well.
The master in this home has an oversized jetted soaking tub with views to the beautiful and private backyard. The room is outfitted in tumbled travertine and includes dual vanities and decorative backsplash. The master also has a separate shower and a mirrored door closet that’s large and includes an extensive custom closet system.
This is a roomy home with an excellent floor plan that has a large great room with a travertine fronted fireplace and wood mantel with decorative details.
Head to the garage and you’ll find built-ins and a deep utility sink, as well as golf cart parking. The home has wood blinds throughout, as well as ample storage space.
But really, what it comes down to is location. Stunning views, nature at its finest, brilliant landscaping designed to take advantage of both sun and shaded areas.
The preferred floor plan, the pristine nature areas — the perfect place to spend your summer.
