An upscale jewel in the midst of an eclectic community, this 3-bed 3-bath custom home is comfortably luxurious, and will meet the needs of the most discerning buyers. The Mediterranean Revival design has Moorish embellishments, with the most striking feature being the vibrant painted ceiling in the Great Room. Moroccan artisans were commissioned to paint the coffered panels by hand, which were then shipped to the US from Casablanca. The massive hand-crafted cast stone fireplace creates a focal point for the seating arrangement and is complemented by the carefully-designed lighting environment. Brazilian walnut wood floors extend throughout the house, with Turkish travertine floors in the kitchen. High-end Wolf and sub-zero appliances, custom cabinetry and granite surfaces provide a kitchen to delight any chef, with the dining area at the rear with 8' tall windows. The theater room has electronics to control the entertainment and sound levels throughout the home, including surround sound. Last but not least, the quality of the construction is evident, from the concrete maintenance-free soffits to the 35' deep foundation pilings. Double-paned and insulated Marvin windows and doors add security and fuel economy to the home, ensuring minimal electricbills. The split garages are designed for easy storage with staircase access to a loft area, in addition to spaces for large vehicles.
