At the base of an oak-studded hillside, this majestic 2400 sf, 3-bed, 2 -bath home sits at the end of a cul-de-sac; on ~1 acre w/equestrian zoning, next to 72 acres of open space, the home features views from every room. Inside city limits, it is serviced by city water and services, is close to the 101, shopping (Trader Joes!) and the beach, yet has the feel of a private rural retreat. The home features an open-flow floorplan, hand-textured ceilings, recessed lights and ceiling fans; 3/4-in heartpine wood and Saltillo tile floors. The oversized master bedroom is like a tree fort, with a deck and cozy fireplace; the spa-like master bath features travertine tile, an extra-wide custom shower with 2 showerheads and 2 body sprays each, a frameless shower wall, cast-iron soaking tub and dual sinks (heated toilets in all 3 baths). The large family room has built-in cabinets and a gas fire insert; living and family rooms provide individual work and study areas. The kitchen has eat-in breakfast bar, SS appliances and RO faucet. Laundry room w/utility sink and storage. Separate exterior storage room used as office. Raised vegetable bed; built-in BBQ; yard visited by deer, bunnies, owls, and horses corralled in the open space. Yard has circular drive; drought-tolerant plants w/irrigation, non-toxic weed control; fountain and multiple seating areas; fruit orchard; 150-ft French drain diverts water to retention pond; RV parking; shed; and separate yard space for play, workshop or ADU.
