Classic Lindenwood Ranch Transformed with Sleek Contemporary Style
Located in the highly desirable Lindenwood neighborhood, this expansive home blends traditional ranch appeal outside with sleek and minimalist contemporary style inside – all in a beautiful setting with pool and flowering gardens. Iron gates gracefully open at both ends of the circular driveway, setting a tone of classic elegance framed by a large lawn, white roses, and olive trees. A flagstone walkway to the front door continues on each side of the home beneath a covered porch. Step inside and a recently renovated modern and stylish atmosphere unfolds, showcasing polished concrete radiant heated floors on one entire side of the home, open and spacious living areas, and a crisp white color palette. Recessed lights dot the paneled cathedral ceiling and a sleek fireplace enhances the ambiance. Throughout the home, floor-to-ceiling library shelves make a striking statement, becoming a distinctive feature that graces many of the rooms.

Staying true to the contemporary style, the kitchen is exquisite. Vertical grain cabinetry in a midtone hue is topped in white quartz with clear backsplashes that add lustrous sheen. A large island features wraparound counter seating, stainless steel appliances by Wolf, Miele, and Sub-Zero that stand ready for the most discerning chef, and sliding glass doors open to a covered terrace with built-in barbecue center. Inviting living areas extend to each side of the kitchen offering wonderful options for everyday enjoyment as well as formal entertainment and media needs. Tucked away in a private corner, showcasing the same polished concrete floors, is one of the home's five bedrooms or ideal office, accompanied by a sky-lit bath entirely adorned in richly hued slate tiles.

A separate wing accommodates the four additional bedrooms, each finished with wood floors, plus three and one-half baths. The primary suite is a haven of natural light with its entire wall of glass that opens to a private fountain terrace with gas fireplace. There are two meticulously designed walk-in closets, one of which cleverly integrates office functionality with a workstation and spacious file drawers. The en suite bath exudes a sleek, contemporary aesthetic adorned in polished white marble and modern wood cabinetry with dual-sink vanity, air jet tub, and frameless-glass shower. Another bedroom within this wing has an en suite bath with shower, while the remaining two bedrooms each have direct access to a shared bath with shower enclosed with track-hung frameless-glass doors.

Adding to the accommodations is a detached 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest house with bonus room suitable for a studio, yoga room, or gym and an arbor-covered terrace making it equally perfect as a poolside entertainment venue. An indoor steam shower plus a finished outdoor shower add convenience. All around, vast bluestone terraces and walkways are entwined with lawn, flowering gardens, vegetable and herb gardens, plus a mix of fruit trees that include lemon, apricot, plum, grapes, and persimmon.
