When you think Folsom Lake Estates you think rambling homes, properties that are nearly an acre or more, mature landscaping and hilly roads that make this beautiful and highly regarded neighborhood near South Placer’s top rated schools one of the best in the area. What you may not know is that many of these homes have seen full renovations that include additions, new kitchens and baths, flooring and more.
This home is one of those special properties.
According to Pearl Hubred of Lyon Real Estate 9415 Oak Leaf has undergone major changes in the last few years.
“The remodel included everything — windows, floors, they even converted the garage to a bonus room, then added a new garage,” Hubred said.
The investment of cash and hard work shows. The home is modern, immaculate and move-in ready.
From the front of the property that’s outfitted in massive evergreens and ancient oaks, the home is perfectly suited to the landscape. The gated front courtyard includes a large patio, and the interior of the home is stunning in clean lines that are achieved by the application of new paint colors and natural, high-gloss pale wood flooring, with cabinetry to match.
The kitchen in this home is impressive, with a large center island topped with granites in dark grays and blacks with hints of shimmer. The kitchen includes custom touches like appliance caddies and modern pendant lighting, as well as custom chandeliers. The room is bright, outfitted in pale wood and features brushed nickel hardware throughout.
The chef’s kitchen includes a five-burner cook top, an oven, compactor, dishwasher and built-in microwave, all in stainless that fairly gleams in the room. The kitchen and breakfast area gaze to the outdoors, and offer backyard access, as well.
This home has a master suite that is to be envied. With a slider to the rear of the home, a vaulted ceiling and a cherry wood furniture piece topped with marble that doubles as a vanity, the room is California casual, yet highly functional. A large walk-in closet with custom wood shelving is sure to meet your every need.
You will definitely want to spend time in this backyard. At nearly an acre, the rear of the property seems to go on forever, with a large planter-box garden, a pool and an adjacent hot tub. The rear of the property has walking paths, fruit trees and even a large storage building, as well as both covered and open patios, and a permanent fire pit. According to Hubred, the orientation of the property is perfect, offering morning sun and afternoon shade, which helps with energy costs during hot summer months.
One thing that visitors love about this home is the functionality of the floor plan for a variety of families.
The house includes a junior master, which is a two-room suite ideally suited as an in-law area. The home also includes an oversized bonus room with an adjacent office, and a nearby full bath that offers outdoor access. The bonus room and office include views to the front courtyard.
Finishes in this house are special and include custom lighting, crown molding and tray ceilings. This property is located just minutes from Folsom lake, and mere steps from Folsom Lake Estates’ private, residents-only park and tennis courts.
The much sought-after single-story home is on a flat, private and usable lot, and the updates make this property a must-see if you are considering a new home.
