Exceptional Sleek Modern Style Transformation
Every inch of this stunning property has been transformed to an ambiance of sophisticated modern elegance with clean-lined interiors, resort-inspired grounds, and eco-friendly design principles. Welcoming you to the home is drought-tolerant landscaping on each side of a wide path with inset borders of verdant ground cover that set the modern tone. Inside double ebony doors, impeccable design details unfold at every turn with towering ceilings providing an incredible sense of volume. Natural light floods the home from skylights and sliding glass doors that open to a central deck around a magical redwood tree with up lighting for evening enjoyment. Retractable glass doors in the main living area provide a seamless connection to an oversized deck for fresh-air living. Radiant-heated floors are finished in large-format concrete or in European white oak. A dramatic floating vertebrae staircase, designed by Viewrail, anchors the center of the home, which includes five bedrooms, four on the main level plus the primary suite and an office on the upper level.

The front room is particularly spacious and designed for media enjoyment with 7.1 surround sound and electronically controlled blinds, found throughout the home. The dining room is formal yet open with direct views and access to the redwood tree deck for al fresco enjoyment. Calacatta marble-style quartz and wood-grain cabinetry appoint the kitchen in absolute splendor, complemented by a suite of high-end Thermador appliances that include an induction cooktop with fully useable surface and a full-height wine cooler. A large casual dining area and the family living room are entirely open to the kitchen, making this an exceptional space for entertaining.

The four bedrooms on the main level include two mirror-image bedrooms each with direct access to a shared bath with dual-sink vanity and separate room with shower and outside entrance for use from the pool. Two additional bedrooms each have an en suite bath with shower; all showers in the home have ceiling and handheld sprays. Upstairs, a dedicated office precedes the primary bedroom suite, which looks out to the redwood trees and has a sizeable, customized walk-in closet. The luxurious en suite bath is sleek and modern with free-standing tub, heated towel bar, dual-sink vanity, operable skylight, and large shower.

Adding to the resort-inspired experience is a new pool and spa surrounded with wraparound soccer-worthy lawn in an eco-friendly artificial turf. Adding to the green building principles are Tesla solar-powered electricity and 2 Tesla car chargers, plus behind the scenes there is forced air as well as radiant heat with Nest control, Sonos sound, and programmable lighting.
