Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go. Just think — if you owned this stunning five acre property in Loomis, you wouldn’t have to travel over hill and dale to be in the middle of the woods. Or so it would seem, in this ultra private property that is less than ten minutes from the freeway.
The beauty of this four bedroom, three bath property is the setting, but that’s not all. The contractor built this home for himself and his family, and the floor plan has a feel good flow that takes advantage of the best angles for views as well as sun exposure. The builder spared no expense on this spectacular estate.
The single story home has immense curb appeal with a Tuscan inspired exterior that includes a sweeping circular drive, a large water fountain and privacy gates. The home has all the high-end features that you would expect in a custom property of this magnitude. Features like stained concrete and custom pendant light fixtures throughout.
A dramatic entry includes marble floors and an elegant formal living room that’s outfitted in a marble fronted fireplace with white wood mantel and impressive white boxed ceilings. The formal dining room is equally impressive with custom chandelier as well as crown molding, chair rails and ceiling medallion. The entry area also includes an office with glass doors, which has a separate sitting room or library.
The home’s kitchen is a magical place that is sure to host holidays that the family will look forward to for years to come. And lucky for you, a large center island can accommodate multiple cooks in this gleaming kitchen that’s decked out in stainless steel appliances. The room is radiant with dark granite dotted with gray, almond, and natural wood flooring. Maple cabinetry and nickel hardware along with pendant lighting complete the clean look.
The kitchen includes a large walk-in pantry, oven, built-in microwave and a six-burner cook top. A maple hood and granite backsplash add character and create an upscale look. The space also includes a dishwasher, compactor and bar seating.
The family areas of this home can’t be beat. A family room with extensive built-ins takes advantage of spectacular views, while a large adjacent game room includes a bar area.
Head to the master, the room has custom ceiling treatments and a large bath that includes a dual head shower, a large sunken bath, and travertine tile flooring with maple cabinetry. His-and-hers closets complete this special room that will provide a restful sanctuary at the end of each day.
The land is the attribute that steals the show in this listing. The rear of the home offers a large covered porch with ceiling fans, formal pool and numerous pergolas for shade and relaxation. The swimming pool and spa include fountains as well as fiber optics. Stained concrete blends beautifully with abundant fruit trees, giving the property a Mediterranean feel. Beyond the fenced area there are numerous outbuildings for storage and animals, and a large four-car garage includes extensive built-ins, a utility sink and stairs that lead to a massive overhead storage room that can easily be used as an extra bonus or hobby room.
The has undergone recent updates including new asphalt driveway and new septic tanks and pipes. In addition, the property offers a pond, extensive lawn areas and fields, as well as a chicken coop and heated pool.
